It’s been a while since I posted a new blog post! I’ve been busy with work or catching up on sleep and so on. Tonight was the first night that I got to hangout with my youth group. We all went to mass at the church and then went to the youth center to do some landscaping work and to hangout. We all social distanced and it was a much needed outing. After church my one leader wanted a hug but since we had to stay 6 feet away we put our arms out like we were going to hug and then pretend to hug. It made me realize how much I actually miss giving my friends hugs and receiving them from others. I think that was also something that not only did I take for granted but others did as well. During this hard time I think many people forget to slow down and take time to appreciate all the things they could do before but now they can’t. People used to give hugs, handshakes, high fives, etc and now you can’t do that. Many people including myself take things for granted sometimes and we don’t realize it until a global pandemic hits. I know that this pandemic sucks and it took away a lot but I also think that it gave us a lot to think about and it also gave us new and other opportunities. I know for me it feels like I can actually take a breath and slow down. I felt like before I was constantly busy and stressed and felt rushed. Then this pandemic hit and things slowed down and it gave me that chance to breathe and to recharge myself in a way.
On the other hand I am now a senior! It is kinda scary and nerve racking but it will all work out. Last month I went on 3 college visits and I fell in love with 2 of them. They both have their pro’s and con’s. I will definitely apply to both and hope I get in but I think my heart is set on one of them so you will just have to wait and see! The time that we are hopefully at school this year I want to take a lot of pictures to remember it later. This year it will be my last first day of high school. It’s the last year that I will walk the halls and say my hello’s and goodbye’s to my teachers. It’s the last time I will probably ever have a locker lol. It will be my last for a lot of things in high school.
