Big Changes

by APrescott,
This pandemic has changed the world as we know it. Events were cancelled, gatherings were postponed and weddings were done through Zoom. For me, it brought about big changes in my life.


On October 14, 2020, I started a new job in the planning field. It was a field of study that I was interested in for many years. It was a huge change meaning that I was going to be living on my own. The pandemic did not stop me from starting a new job.

As time went on, I learned to become independent and patient with others. I also learned how to become flexible with changes in plans and deadlines. Patience is important during the pandemic because we were standing in line to get into the grocery store. I became more flexible with changes because plans can change at the last minute.

Overall, despite the major changes that I have experienced, I kept optimistic about my life. The stories on the news about the rising cases and deaths may be upsetting to me. To stay positive, I thought about happy things and kept healthy. I went for walks outside daily and learned new hobbies such as cooking. This pandemic did not stop me from moving on with my life. I now live on my own and I am advancing my career.
