COVID-19 In The City

During this coronavirus pandemic, what is missing most these days, apart from social isolation? Here are few things I took for granted that I never saw coming:

I know that some of the things I have been waiting unexpectedly might not return, but it forced me to go back and look at old pictures of places I had visited with my family. Even if I don't have to miss things forever, it's worth missing them for a while.

What did you take most during the pandemic and what do you wish for now?

COVID-19 In The City

Being quarantined at home really helped me think about things I hadn't thought about before. Being at home has made me appreciate things that I take for granted and think I can appreciate now. Maybe it came from me, or maybe something was taught to me when it was all over, I don't know.

There are obvious joys that I miss, but there are others I haven’t even realized yet, and the pandemic has forced me to focus on planning moments of happiness that I can look forward to. But there are other things I haven't even noticed that I love them. I miss going to parties, being with friends or at least forgetting that people are able to collectively celebrate our shared love for someone.

Surprisingly, I also started remembering things I never thought I’d miss, like my roommates who don't keep my rubbish with them. I also miss spending time with my classes and friends in the school grounds and having fun with friends during the school break. Apart from that, I really miss the special spring rolls, samosas, cheese sandwiches that I get on Tuesdays in the canteen.

I have not been able to meet relatives and friends and see them in person. I remember that when I was out and I felt hungry, I would not hesitate to go to my relatives' house.

Ever since COVID-19 has come, so many big events have been lost, weddings canceled, funerals forgotten, family celebrations postponed, half marathons cut, festivals celebration missed and much more.

I can’t wait until I can do all of these things. Whether it's a cup of coffee, a walk, a conversation with a friendly dog owner, or a meal with a friend, everyday life feels like a luxury that people desperately want back.

Finally, I need to get all of you vaccinated as when available at your city, and it’s your turn to find opportunities to help your family, friends and neighbors get vaccinated.
