March 25, 2020 – Journal Entry 3

Happy Wednesday! So right now it’s 1:10 p.m. and I just got myself situated on this quarantine day. Well at the moment the coronavirus has affected all schools because now I have to sit home all day and do homework. I’m not sure how the Metro is looking but, I’m hearing that they may close it down to stop the further spread of the virus, and some people are kind of stressing over it because that’s how most people travel these days. In my neighborhood there are some people outside playing on their lawn with their kids but most of my neighbors are still inside. The streets are mostly empty. That’s all for today, so till tomorrow people.


March 26, 2020 – Journal Entry 4

This is like my 8,926,156 day of quarantine, and today is Thursday and the time is now 5:37 p.m., and if I could just say that I’m actually enjoying these journal entries, like it’s so calming and helps you get your feelings out. But anyways back to the questions: How does the pandemic affect the city as a whole? To start as of right now as a city we are all a bit terrified because it’s concerning for parents to make sure that their kids are safe, washing their hands, and staying away. On the other hand, the city is cracking and there is only so much that we can take and our government isn’t helping as much for me because everything is shut down, like there’s no freedom and I feel so controlled, and it’s almost feeling like slavery. It’s just frustrating for us and mostly the adults. The mayor’s job in all of this is to keep us safe.

I don’t even know what she’s doing to be honest, and it’s hard to keep up when all we’re worried about is just getting back outside.
