Day 2 of quarantine.

Day 132 of student voice

I asked my students if they wanted to chronicle their lives as our country entered a state of national emergency. Several students started writing. I will post what they write.


Day 1- Saturday March 14, 2020

Today is the first day of being stuck in my house for the next two weeks. So far, I have woken up at 11:15, fell asleep again, woke up at 11:37, got out of bed, said “Hello” to my mom, made myself some chicken noodle soup, and talked to my family.

It’s now 12:48 when I started writing this. I woke up with a stuffy nose and a little sore throat. I also woke up to being sore in general since yesterday was my first day back at the gym. I have been sitting in my bed and watching TikTok which is also warning everyone about Covid-19.

I went to the store yesterday as well, and let me tell you, everyone was running around like a chicken with their head cut off. Speaking of chicken, Meijer had NO chicken. There was no toilet paper, barely any soup, and many more items were depleting. I had to leave Meijer because it was too hectic and I could not deal with all those people.

Another thing I have done today was make a Covid-19 bucket list. This bucket list is what I hope to accomplish while staying at home. I have completed none of it so far, but I plan on completing it before the two weeks are up. I hope this pandemic ends soon, but for now, I’m living in what will be history later on.

Day 2- Sunday March 15, 2020

Today I woke up at 10:15 to attend my church online, yet I left the livestream early because I had other things to do. I then made the rest of my morning a lazy morning.

It is now 3:30 when I’m writing this and let me tell you, I’m upset. This Coronavirus is ruining my fun. The state just announced that all dine-in restaurants are closing. You can only order through delivery and drive-thru. This is crazy!!! I feel like I’m living in the apocalypse. Not to mention that I can’t even go to dance. I have to start taking classes online now.

I’m still flabbergasted that I’m “trapped” in my house. I left my house for the first time in two days. All of my friends are either freaking out over Covid-19 or don’t care. I frankly just want this to be over. I’m slowly going to go crazy if I don’t do something. I hope this pandemic ends soon, but for now, I’m living in what will be history later on.
