When this is over I will never look at staying home the same. This isolation due to COVID has been challenging to say the least. My grades have dropped, my social life is nonexistant, and my mental health has been poor. I want to go out. I want to have fun. I am 20 and in the prime time of college, yet all I have is my bed and blanket. My dog is my best friend and my social life is random people off the internet. I never realized how much I depended on random socialization until I lost it. Perks have been that I have seen my family a lot, but maybe too much. When this is over, I want to go out and talk to people, sit in a classroom, and maybe go play some basketball.
