i've never been one for theatrics, and yet...
september 2018 - august 2020
if i can't escape my fate, then i will make myself a story
so a lot of the people where i live have been denying the spread of the corona virus, calling it a political hoax, blown up by the media, shit like that.
they stopped talking [march 12].
effective monday (tomorrow for my school district) all schools in the state are closed for at least three weeks. free time, but also grueling online classwork and three weeks of not being able to leave the house. I never really thought it would get to this point, especially where i live.
i'm sorry this isn't really poetry, i just needed to organize something because the way this day began is radically different compared to the way it's ending. it's like my brain has jet lag and is still trying to catch up with the current situation.
in other news, my dad and nearly 40 of his coworkers may have been exposed to the virus; nothing is confirmed yet, we're still waiting for test results, but it's very unsettling to know that people i know and love are at risk.
stay safe and smart, everyone.
