How Being Quarantined Has Changed My Life

Updated: Jul 19, 2020

Being quarantined and not being able to go anywhere has changed my life! Since we have all been quarantined, I have been forced to be a lot more independent, especially when it comes to my school work. For the first time in my life, I am doing all of my school work completely on my own and to be honest, it has been really challenging for me. For example, say I only have four classes on Monday. It takes me four times as long to get those four classes done then it does for an average person because I don’t type very fast and I need someone to help me write things down on paper. Some things are really difficult, such as my math homework because I am still learning how to physically write on my own.

I am still sticking to my regular routine of getting up a bit early to get myself ready for the day, because if I don’t get up early and get myself ready, I would get nothing done. I set two alarms each night. My first alarm goes off at 5:15AM, and I take that time to go on my phone and check my social media. Once my secend alarm goes off at 5:30AM, I get out of bed and get myself ready for the day. Once I am ready, I head downstairs to make myself breakfast and some tea before I start my school work for the day.

Being quarantined has not only taught me that I can do more things on my own than I give myself credit for, but it also has taught me that in order for me to be perductive, I have to wake up early, get myself ready for the day and create a to-do list. If I did not do this, I would not get anything done and would stay in my pajamas all day and be on my phone instead of being productive.
