2020-03-10On March 10, 2020 it was announced that California is on lock down. Now there was many rules going around but the main one wearing masks and staying at home. At the beginning everything was shut down every restaurant, beach, and business. As time when on people started to get bored. Including me I practically watched every show on Netflix. About four months went by and things started opening up. By then everyone was sick of masks and social distancing. The main thing that opened up were beaches and everyone was excited again. Then they were closed again. And then they were open. It was kind of a big cycle that just went on and on. All the rules were kind of weird and like controlling but then they became normal to me. I can't imagine a life without a mask. In conclusion, I don't necessarily like the rules but they became easy to follow.
2020-03-13When COVID_19 started to hit California I was in my second semester of 7th grade. On March 13, 2020 my school announced that we were closing down and switching to online learning. That last day of normal school we prepared our zoom meetings, schedules, and we said our goodbyes. At first everyone thought we were shutting down for two weeks, like and extended spring break. Who knew it would go on for 11 months. My first online school day was wake up 10 minutes before my first class, eat breakfast, and log on at 8am. Simple right? No my wifi decided to shut off and I couldn't attend my first zoom meeting. I email my teacher and got it figured out. I have 3 more classes that day and by the end it felt weird. That same feeling went on for about 4 months. I would facetime my friends every night and talk about our computer issues. Then it started to become normal. The last day of 7th grade I pressed "End meeting" and said wow that was really 7th grade. It felt like something was missing. Summer came and it was very boring, I was excited to even go on a walk. 8th grade rolled around and we were still online. It was my new normal and so I didn't mind it. I was missing my friends more than ever though. I got through the semester and I went to Colorado for winter break. After I got home my school announced we were going back. I was very excited. I thought everything was going to go back to normal besides wearing masks. The first day was very weird we stayed 6 feet apart, my dance class was outside, my hands were dry from hand sanitizer. It was very crazy, but overall I am very thankful to be back and school and have human interaction again.
2020-03-10On March 10, 2020 I heard of a virus. It was called COVID-19 or coronavirus. I heard many conspiracies on how this virus started. The one who standed out the most was that the virus started in China and someone ate a bat that had a bad virus. The person who ate the bat then spread it to people around china. It just kept getting worse and spread to the entire world. The next one is more political. People in China wanted revenge on president trump because he closed borders and industries with them. Since China wasn't getting any money from selling stuff to America they created a virus. They started spreading the virus to America. People started to blame president Trump and wanted to impeach him. The last one is also very political. Democrat's did not like Trump being in office and they wanted to get rid of him. They teamed up with China to start a virus so they could get Trump impeached. Since that didn't work when the election came they added more votes to Biden so he would win. Personally I believe the second conspiracy. All in all, I do not think we will ever find out what actually created Covid-19 but it still caused harm to many people.
2020-12-10In February of 2020 I was 13 living my best life. I was playing beach volleyball everyday and going to school. I was allowed to go outside and play with my friends and I never thought that would change. No one wore masks but now I can't imagine life without them. I was doing tournaments at the beach every weekend but now I'm lucky to be doing even one. There was toilet paper on the shelves. If you even get a roll now it seems like you have won the lottery. Everyday before felt different new opportunities and new goals to achieve. Ever since, it's all the same. Everyday feels like it goes by so fast and yet so slow. On March 13, 2020 was when it started to feel real. We were in class and everyone was preparing to shut down. In each class we were preparing and problem solving for the next few weeks online. Well what we thought was a few weeks. A longer spring break turned into 10 months. I remember saying goodbye to all my friends even though, we thought we were coming back but, we hugged each other like it was the last time. And it was. Friends I thought I would know forever just drifted. My first day of online school was ruff. I had a hard time logging into zoom and my eyes hurt at the end of the day. Now it's a part of my daily schedule. It is my new normal.
