It's been a wild ride so far and I'm tired of it. I have been quarantined since the last week of March in my room. At this point, I don't even want to sleep or even be in my room.
I am just tired of seeing the same walls every day.
Going to work at the group home to hear that one of my co-workers has COVID-19 was disappointing. After being in contact with that person, then got quarantined for 2 weeks to be safe. Then one of the guys that we take care of pasted away due to COVID-19, which extended my quarantine to two more weeks.
Afraid of bringing any sickness from my job to my home where my parents live, my mother got obsessed and scared that I would get COVID and pass it to them and made me quarantine myself in my own room, with just bathroom breaks that require wearing mask and gloves.
Quarantined in my room, with homework piling up and finals coming soon. I was starting to lose it. I needed fresh air. I needed to get out of my room.
I wanted to cry, I wanted to punch the wall. I wanted to be quarantine-free.
Besides that, my sleep schedule was all screwed up. I would do my work, study, etc. during the afternoon until 4 in the morning and sleep during the day. Yes, I had mini-breaks to get my mind away from all the work. I tried Netflix then got bored with it and couldn't seem to find something to entertain me, then tried Tubi, Amazon Prime. Even Youtube of random videos and nothing seemed to work. I couldn't be stress-free. I was tired of being in my room.
At this point in life, we all technically have COVID it's just the symptoms that may worsen on some and others not so much. Now that I am quarantine-free and back to work, I am more alive than ever. Even though I'll be doing my work and my studying in the kitchen, in the living room, or even in the dining room table just to be away from my room.
