*Sighs* Everything. I’m just not... ok. Upvote if u feel the same. And I promise it’s not just cuz I want upvotes. It’s cuz I know it’s been a really hard year for everyone. And I just want to make a place to express your feelings. Cuz it’s just ... hard.

I would have gone to the beach and hung out with my friends a ton and I would have probably gotten a boyfriend in the fall. I honestly think that pandemic was for the best for me, who knows what could've happened if I did those things?

My grandfather died at the beginning of lockdown. I wasn't allowed to attend his funeral. Our family hasn't been able to get together for a wake, either. I wasn't able to visit him as I had gastroenteritis for a while even before lockdown and I couldn't put him at risk of that, either. But as soon as I was safe again, we got plunged into lockdown... a couple weeks later he was gone.

I miss him so F***ing much, and I'm heartbroken I couldn't be there. I miss my family, too, I miss being able to go out and not be so nervous all the time. I was supposed to be going to Japan with my fiance... all of that just completely impossible to do, and I don't know when it will be. And I hate it.



F*** you covid.

Camping, I miss camping. We usually go a few times a year but I haven’t been once. I would have also had more game nights with my mum and brothers and caught up with my friends more often.

Well, I would have never found my true self, and find my new fav music. So I'm kinda glad about it. And if Trump won then everyone would be doomed.

I would've gotten to FINALLY be in the main cast of the spring play. This was the first year that I was old enough to be allowed to audition for a main role. I got one but we weren't able to do it because the spring play was cancelled due to COVID-19.
I also would've been on my first camping trip without my parents. This was the first year that my class would go on a camping trip and stay there for three days. None of us had ever been to this place and we were very excited. You want to know what sucks the most about this? THE DAY WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE BUS HEADING TO THE CAMPSITE WAS THE DAY THAT WE WERE GETTING ALL OUR THINGS FROM SCHOOL TO START TAKING THEM HOME FOR ONLINE LEARINING!!!!!
*Blows steam out of ears*
*Exhales harshly*

Okay, I'm back to normal now.

It's been a hard year for everyone and humans got to know their actual place in the ecosystem (that we're just helpless dumbos). Had it not been for Covid-19, it would have been a VERY normal year for me..... a year like all the rest I've lived. It wouldn't have had taught me that family and health are the most important (including WiFi☠)
Though, I would have been living the best life with friends as it was my last year in school.

Gone to law school. I've been a paralegal for 7 years, graduated college 11 years ago, and always said I never wanted to be a lawyer because of the debt and the workload. But in 2019 I made the decision to try. Spent months studying for the LSAT. When the day-of finally came (in 2020) it was cancelled due to COVID. They rescheduled an online version at a later date, but by then everything had gotten so stressful that I just couldn't see being able to fit it on my plate. So, that plan is indefinitely on hold at this point. I often wonder how well I would've done on the LSAT; I was getting some pretty decent scores on the practice tests. :/

My friend and I had this big fight and we didn't really get a chance to fix it because we were working from home. And so we got a chance to reconnect the other day. It has been amazing having him by my side again!!! I would have liked to reconnect with him sooner but it made it so much sweeter to talk to him again!!!

I'd have spent April Vacation in Ireland with my grandmother and my friend.
It would've been wonderful.

I would’ve gone on a cruise to Europe (Italy, Spain, and France). I would’ve gone to school, hung out with friends, had a 16th birthday party. I’ve never realized how much school actually means to me, being surrounded by people my age. I would’ve made new friends, been able to play in orchestra with everybody.
