Dear Diary,

When I first heard of Covid 19, I wondered what all the hype was about. It’s just a virus right? I had no idea how much this “virus” was going to impact our life the way it did. My friends can’t graduate or get the full experience of their senior year and I’m missing out of my nursing school experience. The virus is the top of everyone’s conversation and constantly talking about it nonstop has me exhausted. My parents keep expressing that it’s going to be around for a while and how the world will never return back to normal, even once the city opens back up. By the Grace of God, my friends, family, and myself haven’t been affected by the virus physically. However, it has affected me mentally. It’s been making me feel less motivated and less excited about the future.
