I’m trying so hard to keep writing these as long as possible before they get too boring, but I’m literally out of ideas. I’m so bored I took a nap. I hate naps, always saw them as a waste of time but what am I going to do with nothing else to do? I also saw the video of the teachers singing. It was adorable. I also hope everyone and their loved ones are doing well. Everyone should cherish their loved ones. I’m saying this because if the worst-case scenario happens, someone gets it and dies, they die alone and eventually get thrown into a mass grave or burned. So keep washing your hands, kiddos.

Listening to : So Bored by Gorgeous Bully

It is March 23rd, 2020, and I think the song above accurately describes me right now. I just woke up, it’s 11:49 AM. I don’t know why I can’t sleep anymore, but maybe it is because I’m not wasting any energy in actually going out. It kind of sucks though, because now I go to sleep at 3 AM. I need to go grab coffee . . .

Americans are so stubborn. I was watching the news and it showed this guy talking and he said, “If you looked at the park it would be like nothing is even happening. This is arrogant, disrespectful, and rude.” He isn’t wrong. People aren’t taking this as seriously as they should. That’s why the infection rate is higher.

Right now I am watching the news and this is what I’m hearing: Louisiana has the fastest growth rate at 79.3%, national guard troops are being deployed, we don’t have enough hospital beds, Trump is considering whether or not he will send money to Americans. 3,000$ for a family of four. The house is arguing over the stimulus bill. Pence is considering sending workers to work even if they have it if they wear masks. Drugs are in short supply. Clinical trials will start tomorrow but it may not be fast enough.

Cruel people are also trying to profit from a pandemic. They are trying to sell fake corona tests. This is just upsetting. I understand business is business but people shouldn’t profit off of
