I thought I would have a week of vacation to relax. I imagined pickup basketball and unlimited screen time. My life would continue without the stress of school.
That’s how it was, until one week later, when I was sitting with my family in the living room, and the president announced a total national lockdown.
Soccer had been canceled, but I would still have been working out with my teammates. School was continuing online, but there weren’t any tests. I was in touch with my friends constantly on my phone. I could watch NBA matches live without being yelled at to go to bed. Things were fine. What was the big deal if this continued for a few more weeks?
