‘Thank god it’s Friday! Yeah right…’
Today is a Friday, yet does it feel like a Friday? No.
Fridays were always supposed to be fun, every Friday I would come home from school, I would switch on the telly and watch something interesting while eating some snacks or other. Then I would go for my math tuition, and till the time I came back it would be six in the evening and I would watch a little bit more of T.V. Friday was a day when I would study nothing other than maths, and this fact made that day even more jolly. Now at seven I would go down to play, but some Fridays my father would come home early and we would go out. And, if not I would come back home at around nine, eat my dinner and then I would stay awake till late, because I knew the next day is a holiday.
But, now everyday is boring, no special jolly days. Everyday is a holiday, but you still have to wake up early for the online classes. I can’t even go down now or go out. But I am trying to learn new things, looking at this lockdown with a whole new point of view. But, this is still work in progress, and though I am trying, I have to admit I will never look back at these times and say, ‘’What good times!’’.
Because believe me, this is such a time when I didn’t see any of my friends for a month, and I’m sure it is going to be longer than that. But, all of this I can bear with, the only thing I miss more than anything are the amusement parks, the malls with the big cineplexes, the restaurants, and all of the other stuff I can’t enjoy while I sit at home.
And, this is ironic because before the lockdown I had created a list of places I will go when my holidays start, and I had implied that nobody could ruin my holiday plans, and hear I am sitting on my couch blaming the virus for ruining my wonderful plans.
But I decided to try this new recipe for soup I found over the internet today, and it tasted amazing. All of the herbs, the vegetables they all combined together to make delicious soup, if I say so myself. I understood that these days are all about trying something new, and if you decide to lie on your couch and binge watch an entire series, I say go ahead and do it! (because, thats is exactly what I am doing…) this experience will be new too, the lockdown should encourage us to learn new hobbies while in the comfort of our home.
