I want to start this off by saying how thankful I am to be healthy in a time like this. I'm praying every day for the people who have contracted this disease, and I also pray for their families. Alongside that, I want to say thank you to all the people continuing to work during this crisis, especially those in the medical field. We are in uncharted waters as a nation, and we need to stick together. Hopefully, this will end soon, but even if it doesn't we will continue to push forward and carry on. As a nation, we will fight, and we will overcome this! We will rebuild and come back even stronger.
But I am selfishly upset at this virus.
Due to this pandemic, my college career, like many other students was cut short. I know this isn't the end of the world, and I will totally get over it, it's just not how I expected my academic journey to come to an end. I did not expect that we would never step foot in a classroom again, or that I would never walk through campus. This is something that I am still getting used too. During all this time at home, I have been reflecting on all the things I am going to miss.
I am going to miss college.
I am going to miss the friends I made within my major.
I am going to miss my professors that made my experience so amazing.
I am going to miss going out.
I am going to miss the hot dog stand on campus.
I am going to miss all the interesting people I met.
I am not going to miss studying, or stressing over assignments, but I will miss most everything else.
Who am I kidding? I already do miss it.
