I've grown attached to the webs of stories that people can bring to life, with their prosperous words and poetic imagery
Hopefully one day, mine will be as beautiful as theirs.

"The speed of light"

That's how I would describe myself today. I'm still getting used to this online schooling system that I have now. 
A lot of my teachers are struggling with assigning work and a lot of students are struggling with sending work. 
It's me. I'm the student. 

That and today was the fateful day that I woke up late. 
Not just late though, oh no, of course not 'just' late 
Two hours. 
Two hours later than I should've.  ...

A wave was crushed on top of me today,
a harsh, violent, angry wave. 

With freezing water 
and blistering heat 
all at the same time 

I couldn't help the sense of...loneliness 
the 'wave' of loneliness and silence. 

Yet I was filled with people, 
family and friends, 
but, I couldn't help it. 

The wave was too strong 
and the sand was piercing. 

Day 9 was a wave of awarness. 
We'll see what happens tomorrow.

I feel as if a burnt-out candle 
as if all the fire and power
has finally run out, 
the time has run out. 

I'm left lost and confused in the darkness, 
the wax is finished 
and all sign of light has vanished.

A whole week,
It has finally been one week of this quarantine or isolation. 
It's been weird, to say the least. 

I've done so much in such little time and yet it feels as if it's been months,
it feels as if a holiday that should've ended weeks ago. 
I can't process what is yet to come. 

How long we'll be here, 
if it's going to eventually become permanent. 
If it will all end much sooner than we think. 

The...

Clean. 
One word to describe today was cleaning. 
A lot of cleaning. 

I heard other people cleaning their whole house for fun, 
I never thought I could do something like that, I'm way too lazy 
But today was that day, 

I felt like Cinderella, 
There is not a single spec of my room, 
Not a spec, I repeat, 
That is left dirty or not re-organized. 

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not but, 
It happened.

    Stressful. 
That's all I can use to describe it. 
Its been so "stressful" today that I have lost my sense of vocabulary. 

Let's begin from the beginning. 
The work. 
A whole lot of work. 
Its as if they're making even more work because they can. 

Next, my files. 
It all crashed down. 
And I mean "all" 
Three large files, toppling over my desk. 
It was not great. 

Lastly, the website. 
For some reason, I couldn't upload the next...

Today was a good day, 
which is shocking. 
I have found a new music taste
and some new songs that are now my favourite. 

It makes me wonder, where would I be now if not stuck at home? 
At a friend's house? 
A relative's? 

Would I have eventually found these songs? 
Written these words? 
Done all of these things
without having to be imprisoned in my own home? 

I don't know
and I will never know 

But, what I do...
