When will this pandemic be over?
The last time I traveled was last November 2019. Little did I know that it would be the last of my trips for a long while. There's no doubt I would rather stay home than risk getting sick while traveling to some faraway place. I am aware that there's a handful of places where Americans can travel to in Europe and in the Caribbean.
I consider myself fortunate to still be working and have a steady job. Just from watching the news on TV, I know there are thousands who have lost their employment and are having a hard time making both ends meet. I can't really complain and not having gone on vacation is the least of my worries.
I can't exactly say that the time since we left school has been all fun and rest. How could it have been when in March, I together with everyone else was so scared of the virus. We were told to stay indoors and stay indoors we most certainly did. Shortly after school closed abruptly, I resumed teaching online. Just like any other school year, I checked attendance, taught virtually, checked homework, attended staff meetings, and did report cards. I even went back to my classroom to put things away for the summer.
Come Thursday, I formally return to work and begin teaching Aug. 24th. Summer came and went and the farthest I had been this summer was a trip to the supermarket. Oh, well, here's hoping for a vaccine really soon so we can all return to normal.
