When this pandemic first started, I thought it was going to come and pass, like the flu season, but I had no idea this would turn my life upside down! The first few weeks of the quarantine, I was fine. I had Bon Jovi and Def Leppard concerts planned for the day, and I was getting used to my online classes. Then two months went by, and I still haven’t left the house; that’s when it hit me how scary the situation is. Concerts are being pushed back; people are dying; we now have to wear face masks in public, businesses had to shut down, and my friends and many others never got a traditional graduation ceremony because of COVID-19.
Flash forward to the beginning of June with the Stadium Tour as well as other summer tours moved to next summer, I was and still am devastated. Def Leppard came to Hawaii in October 2018. but I didn’t become a fan of theirs until the summer of 2019. When I heard about the Stadium Tour and bought tickets right away, I was given a second chance to see my new favorite band. Then COVID-19 came and changed everything. Being the drama queen that I am, I thought my life was over, but things happen, and to be honest, I know I’ll get another chance to see Def Leppard in concert one day.
If I were to spend the rest of the summer moping around and saying my life is over, then I wouldn’t be living my life to the fullest. Despite our current situation, life must go on. I must learn to focus on the positive side of negative situations and brave it out with a smile on my face.
Things are starting to open up now like malls and beaches, even Disney World and Universal Studios are planning to open up soon. Because like I said, life must go on, and we can’t let this virus defeat us. Businesses need to do everything they can to save our economy! So things are looking up, and with the extra time I have now, I can use it to focus on blogging, drawing, and learning how to type (which I’ve always wanted to do).
I’m not ok entirely, but I’m in a better place now than I was just a few weeks ago. We’re going to get through this together. So stay safe, use this time to try a new hobby, go outside and smell the fresh air, do whatever you can to support local businesses, and look after your loved ones!
Take care and see ya real soon!
