How Exciting . . . and Terrifying

So, this week has been rather interesting. The fear of the coronavirus finally got to where I live. Everyone began freaking out. Toilet paper, soap, flour . . . everything is gone from the grocery stores. Hardly anyone goes outside anymore, and our state governor has canceled all schools for the next two weeks.

I’m actually really excited. I hate going to school, so honestly it’s a good thing. My only worry is my grades will probably tank because of the online thing my teachers are going to try. Back in seventh grade I went to an online school, but I was really bad at it. Maybe with maturity I’ll be able to do it right this time. Or maybe not. It doesn’t matter that much to me either way.

I feel like my whole life has been leading up to this moment. I’m definitely an introvert, so the lack of human contact doesn’t bother me. And my mother recently got my book edits back to me, so now I’ll have a lot of time to look through them. It’s been an interesting process so far.

The only bad thing is that my car broke down. And because of most everything shutting down, my father doesn’t have a reason to try to fix it. Last night was my last shift at work, so I don’t even have that to leverage against him to get him to do it. So now I’m just going to be stranded at my parent’s house. Which really isn’t that bad, but I want to hang out with my friends at least once during this strange time.

Anyway, I’m really not worried about the coronavirus. I’m young, so it won’t really do anything to me if I do get it. And I don’t know anyone that it could have a negative impact on. So I’m just going to bunker down with my computer and a lot of books. And ice cream. Can’t forget the ice cream.

What sort of craziness is going on where you live? I’d love to hear about it!

Stay safe,

Sally

    1. I do get a lot of spam comments. Unless they contain harmful links, I generally keep them because more comments means more exposure. My website settings make it so I have to approve each comment before they show on the blog. So I go through all of them individually. I don’t use any other plugins. I haven’t needed to because I don’t get too many comments for me to handle.
      I hope this helps!
