I am just going to get straight onto the point-
So as most of you know, COVID-19, or as many people call it, 'The Coronavirus' is just going bonkers through a bunch of nations and such.
I live in Lousiana in the USA, so this information may not go the same as for yourself.
So, because of this virus, many people are just going overboard for obvious reasons. Face masks, gloves, FLIPPIN' HAND SANITIZER AND TOILET PAPER IS GETTING STOLEN.
The people is charge are making some... decisions. And this is the part that just makes me completely sick.
So I go to my school and we were told that we shall return from about March 7th - April 13. Not bad, right? Considering that they had to do so because of the new rule whereas a maximum of 250 people cannot be in one building at once. Well, now there is a high chance that we may not be back to school for the rest of the y e a r.
I bet you are thinking, 'But, isn't that great news, though? You get free time to do what you'd like and you do not have to even worry about online schooling for the rest of the year!'.
That's completely wrong. According to the surrounding people I am by, us kids can't even leave the house...
Remember how I said that rules were put in place where a maximum of 250 people may not in a building at once? It's not 250 now. Not at all. IT'S 10. 10 PEOPLE CANNOT BE IN A BUILDING TOGETHER AT ONCE. That sounds insane to me. One day 250. The next day it's 10. It's going overboard now, really...
They are making us isolate ourselves, is what it feels like to me.
Big and fun places like Universal and Disney World is closing down until further notice. And... this hurts. You see, I am in a special group for kids called, 'Honor Club'. It is mostly known as 'Beta' for most schools. This year would've been my first year I would've gone to Universal, and let me tell you, you have to go under extreme pressure to get that goal. A's and B's in every subject is what you have to struggle through and worry about throughout the whole year. I am a Top Straight A student, never even attempted to go as low as a B. I sometimes even cried to myself because of how much pressure I was under in order to achieve this goal. I wanted to go, bad. Through Pre-K to 4th Grade I was doing this, not just this year. It wasn't bad starting off, but it got worse as the work advanced. I've prepared for this all of my school years. My older sister had an amazing time when she did it, and I wanted to do what she did, too.
It hit me like a thousand sharp stones when I heard that I couldn't go because of precaution decisions. All that hard work; for nothing. I wanted to die. It's just hard, and I can't think straight. Just keep in mind, from Pre-K I put myself under this because I was so determined. I was so determined and my mind was so set to do anything I could, that I got into the GT (Gifted Talents) program at Grade 3, and had achieved to getting into the Art Program this year, Grade 5.
My birthday is coming in 8 days from now, and I can't do anything, really. All because of the decisions made.
I know that I can't do anything about it, but I feel like I am going to break down any moment now.
I am isolated and my work is wasted. My life was already hard enough...
I usually don't say or reveal things about me like this on Scratch, but I feel uncomfortable talking to my family about how I feel and Scratch is the only source of outside communication I have that I feel safe talking about.
Some of you may brush it off as just me being overly-emotional, and maybe that is the case...
But this hurts guys. It does.
I don't feel like myself anymore, and that I will just cry and puke any moment from now.
I just need somebody to talk to, please.
