Some COVID Thoughts

Well. I'm frustrated. Just like everyone else in the world. 

I'm not afraid of getting sick. I'm fearful of society changing...future changing...I don't understand how life is going to function after this. 

I'm so disappointed in this year because I worked so hard to get here. I waited two years to be here. I worked my butt off studying and working overtime to get here. And now my plans have a HUGE wrench thrown in. And I know I'm not alone, but this was my only shot, you know? I can't afford to come back next year. Or the year after. It's now or never. 

Coronavirus was something we were aware of back in January, but not something that we ever thought would impact our area. 

All schools have been shut down until further notice, and VFS is included. They're trying their best to do online courses, but it's just not working. 

I'm trying my best to stay optimistic. We're on Week 2 of no school/working from home, and I haven't been motivated enough to do schoolwork. Starting tomorrow, my other roommate is returning from L.A. which means we'll be on mandatory quarantine for two weeks. 

I started taking a free Science of Well-Being course by a Yale professor, and it's helping. I'm also taking the Aaron Blaise Animation Fundamentals course to fill in the gaps of instruction. And I'm participating in my favorite DTIYS on Instagram. 

I'm doing yoga twice a day now. I was taking really long walks by myself, but I'm trying to transition to quarantine-mode.

And I'm spending so much time on social media instead of focusing in and working with all this time I've been given. 

Good luck to everyone out there. Life isn't going to be the same after this blows over. But hopefully we will all come out stronger with a better understanding of what we want to do with our lives.  <3
