I was on my home from school when I suddenly receive an email from my school saying that school will be closed due to the pandemic Covid-19. I remember being so happy because that meant no more having to go to class!
Why do I feel so alone?
I walked in my house so happy that I remember shouting to my mom telling her that the school closed. I was ready to just stay in my room and just relax and have fun.
Hi mom! What are you up to?
Hi son, I'm just making dinner
Fast forward to a few weeks later, I found myself spending a lot of time on my computer doing many different things like homework, playing games, watching videos, and researching other subjects like nutrition.
Even though I kept myself busy with things to by myself, I found myself feeling alone and sad. I felt as if I isolated myself from everyone. I would talk to my family and friends from time to time but felt alone.
What I decided to do is to go spend more time with my family. I never really had the time back then before this whole quarantine and pandemic started because I was busy with sports, school, and work. So I thought that maybe with this free time I could catch up and spend time with my family.
I found out that by spending more time with my family I began feeling happy and feeling like myself again! I spend a lot of more time with my family now and I am actually kinda happy that quarantine happened because if that didn't happen then I wouldn't have gotten closer with my family and make our bond even stronger.
