Even though this is only my second entry, things have made me quite emotional just recently. I’m case you didn’t know I’m a gymnast, I work 10 long hours a week, but I love it with all my heart. Just around an hour ago I found out that my gym was closing for a long long time, it’s going to be so hard. I’m going to loose my strength, skills and so much more, but the thing that’s getting me through this is knowing that I’m not the only one, there are so many other people losing jobs, not being able to see their friends and so much more. Yesterday I mentioned that today will probably be my last day of primary... school is not just a place where I go to learn, it’s where I feel welcome, all the teachers are so lovely and kind and knowing I’ll never get to see them again is kind of heartbreaking. Even though things are tough right now our prime minister has done it for a reason, and I’m sure it will make an impact! On a more positive note, in China they are beginning to send their pupils back to school! I know it’s very little progress but it still gives me that small ray of hope.
Yesterday and this morning has been so freaky and weird, not just because of all the things i have just mentioned, but also because of the amount of people I’m able to see. This morning for example, I was on my way to school and it was like forbidden streets, there was hardly anyone there, and when I walk into school there were only 5 people.
But if we’re going to look at the positive aspects then in a way, the virus is teaching us to all look out for one another, making sure we are safe and more important, making sure we KNOW we are safe.
But if I were to have anything in the world right now, it would be to stop this.
