coming from someone who often finds themselves not wanting to leave their bed, i am getting pretty damn stir crazy. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting in week 10 of the quarter getting ready for finals. During my Thursday class final study session, we find out that the University would, in fact, be shutting down all in-person classes the next day…. meaning that the final we all just studied for we would not be taking.
AKA, all of the hard work our professor put into us that quarter would not actually be tested when it came to our final. She was one of the good professors, one of those with their doctorates who are actually passionate about teaching. Thanks, prof, I genuinely wish I would’ve joined the SBA Honors.
Anyways, back to the isolation part. So, I am not loving this whole do everything from home thing. Like, Oregon just went on official lockdown, today. We expected it, they hinted at it all weekend AKA we all went and actually stocked up on the essentials this time.
You might live under a rock, but they tried to pass a stay at the home thing in Seattle that actually failed because there were no consequences of it. Drumroll please, OR consequence is a Class C misdemeanor. That is up to 30 days in jail.
More isolation, you get the point?
So, the only people I have been around are my boyfriend, my roommate, and her boyfriend since this has been going down. Well, minus a few postmates and strangers in the markets. But, to top it off, I have asthma and I have been sick since March 12 and today it is the 23rd.
I’m one of those unlucky ones who when they get any type of virus they get sick for like 2-3 weeks with a lingering cough. Well, hello that’s me and my lungs are lowkey burning. TBH, I haven’t taken care of my health that great in the past year. I have been super high stress with school, clubs, volleyball, working, internships, presenting a club, and so on. Worrying about everything but myself.
It’s a pretty Capricorn thing to do actually. But, because of this, I have been sick more than I typically find myself. So, here I am in the middle of this damn Pandemic that is exposing America’s terrible healthcare system, with my worst asthma flare-up in awhile.
So, I am taking it day by day with my now daily inhaler and doing absolutely everything inside that I can. This kind of derailed, and didn’t truly touch on what I thought that it would but I will just be here day by day as this goes on.
