Lockdown extended till 31 may.
What was I expecting? I don’t know, a summer vacation would be nice. Some free time on the beach, swimming races with my friends, a trip to…somewhere? I was expecting a lot from nothing, but I knew this was coming. I just didn’t want to believe it.
This is officially the worst summer ever, I know I said that I was practising optimism, but I have to let it all out somewhere, why not here? Each passing day, there are more cases, more deaths. People say, we all have to stay indoors till the next year, when I heard this for the first time my only reply was, “what? I’ll die!’’ Because, 365 days indoor is too much for a person to handle. That is why the government is doing this, they say that the lockdown will go on till the 18th of may, days before 18 may they say, that there are too many cases and they regret to inform us that the lockdown will be extended.
You know, first there were memes on lockdown 1.0, then came lockdown 2.0. Till lockdown 4.0 people were tired, ‘why waste our energy?’ They thought. Remember, how everyone suddenly became creative in the early days of lockdown? They tried new recipes, spent more time with their families, well now they have all stopped. They’re all bored now, and that was eventually going to happen.
At first people said they were happy in lockdown, they called it bonding time. Matter of fact, so did I. But, now we have all made our own routine. As the days pile up, so does my parents’ work. And me? Well I have studies, actually I have books which I occasionally have to open, suck all the information out of it, and then close the book. Studying isn’t fun anymore, its just like some dull chore I don’t want to do, but I kind of have to.
To be honest, this lockdown has sucked the fun out of everything. Before, family time was like something I looked forward to. Because we wouldn’t get it a lot and now we see each other’s faces the entire day, literally my mom and dad are the only people I have properly talked to, in months.
So, in conclusion today was like a cheat day. I have the rest of the days to be optimistic, but right now I feel like more of a glass half empty girl. Thanks a lot lockdown!
