Shrugging Off the Negativity

Description (Dublin Core)

To me, the picture above accurately sums up my Covid-19 experience. In this situation, the classic “Michael Jordan shrug” is equivalent to having the mentality of “there is nothing you can change about this, so you just got to keep moving forward”. That is how I was able to keep sane during the height of the pandemic. With the second half of my senior year of high school being scrapped, it was a matter of whether I was going to be mad about what I missed out on or look forward to what was ahead of me. The only concern I had (when the pandemic first begun) was keeping my family and I safe/distanced from the effects of the coronavirus.
The photograph was captured during the 1992 NBA Finals.
