MAY 4 - SEEMA LAL (senior)

Wake up, Zoom, eat, sleep, repeat. This has been my daily routine during this quarantine. I have lost all my motivation to do any work, yet somehow I’m still doing it. I play Sims 4 every night but some days, I even feel tired of that.

I have long accepted that this will be life for a while, and while it drains me, I still keep waking up every day, And I try to make the most out of every day.

One new thing I’ve started? More cooking and baking. Each day, I make a pretty big breakfast, including eggs and other things, depending on my mood. This is new because in the past I would only do that on weekends. As for baking, my mom loves bananas so she brings some home every week, but often no one else eats them, so I decided to put them to use. I have made banana bread several times, and after the second time, my friend Nayely called me out about for being obsessed with banana bread.

I have also made a lot of chocolate chip cookies, and have started to make scones. My parents know that I am bored, so they let me do it and even let me have the kitchen all to myself.

Knowing that graduation is canceled and that I won’t have the opportunity to see my senior classmates in person bums me out every day. But that doesn’t stop me from being excited about what’s to come, even though nothing is certain during these times.
