  • Through the summer me and my family have been able to travel a lot more! (Bad idea during a pandemic I know-but still!) We went to the beach for some family fun, nothing like building a sandcastle- with no risk of it being ruined because people had to stay away lol!
    Not having a bunch of lines to stand in everywhere was pretty great aswell. We went to a bunch of farms, and got to eat fresh fruit straight from the tree's. And there were a bunch of adorable animals running around! 

    Though I already lived with my parents before this pandemic we definitely became a lot closer having to stay in our house together more. We even learned new things about each other we never knew.

    (What a lovely idea to think in the positive side of this pandemic!)

    We do not have a correct end date decided at the moment, but it will be around the first week of next month.

    My Country, that is, India experienced lockdown for 3 months last year...My mom had to go to work daily except Weekends. While my dad didn't have to go to work every day. I and my brother were at home. We usually watched Cartoons (like Bugsbunny, Tom & Jerry, etc) and Movies (I watched all the Avengers movies and many Animations), I didn't have my laptop at that time as it was on repair...Then we used to play Cricket, football, and many indoor games. We can't see a single person out road during that time. And the Cases were very few in my state through many other states were suffering. There's nothing much to say about it :)

    For me was amazing, we was on lockdown in 2020, i had much time to talk with my member family and to watch movie and to play bigfarm. Here was a lucky that i have mountain so close and not far away about 1km and i go on mountain all time. For me was so so positive but not with Covid :P always negative there :)

    Putem oricând să ne lovim de lucrurile simple / complicate ale vieții, dar timpul cu cei dragi este din ce în ce mai prețios și mai greu de obținut. Pot spune că din punct de vedere GRATUIT am fost tristă, fiind o persoană activă, dar și foarte fericită că am putut să petrec mult timp cu familia mea. Pare amuzant dar FAMILIA ta nu este minunată !!? Am avut momente minunate în casă cu cei doi băieți și soțul meu. UNIC.And the only lasting thing we will be left with will be this reconsideration of his "home."


    Translation:

    We can always run into the simple / complicated things of life, but time with loved ones is becoming more precious and harder to obtain. I can say that from a FREE point of view I was sad, being an active person, but also very happy that I was able to spend a lot of time with my family. Sounds funny but your FAMILY is not wonderful !!? I had a wonderful time at home with the two boys and my husband. UNIC.And the only lasting thing we will be left with will be this reconsideration of his "home."

  • I am Priyanshu,
    Today I am going to tell about my covid 19's lockdown life.
    On 12th April 2020,
    I was suffered from fever 108degree Farenheit.
    And I don't know where am I and some more.
    And I was on comma with covid 19 high fever.
    I thought that now I can't survive more.
    And this fever is for 3 months and 5 days with me.
    Then something magical occurs with me and today I am safe.
    My dad spent 10million money on me to save me.
    And here is my birthday on 9th August.
    On my birthday I was safe and no i am not suffering from fever and any disease.
    I was unable to go out for Celebrating birthday but I celebrate it at home with my family members.
    I wish that as soon as possible the Corona Virus leaves our World and we all are safe.
    Stay safe Stay Strong Live Long.

    Thank You 

    pRIYANSHU

    Covid even though it has created a difficult time, it has taught me a lot! 

    My school get on distance and I lose all my friends. At the same time, I was bullied and harassed very hard here in the game. She turned my Christmas, my birthday, etc. into a nightmare. When one of my relatives died of covid then she did extremely nasty things to me. I felt very lonely and depressed. 
    But no, I was not alone! This terible situation brought my real friends closer to me even if she wrote to everyone terrible things about me. They didn't leave me alone and comforted me and gave light in my life ♥ Yes, this covid have make hars times for many of us but even this, it have learn us what real love and friendship is. Even if all going on the digital world, it makes it much role in our real life and well-being. It is very important how we behave with each other even in a digital world especially now in the pandein where many lose their loved ones. After these experiences I have had, I have tried with all the strength I can to be a support to the others and help as best I can which is not the easiest thing but I hope I can get more love now that we need it most especially now.

    The pandemic has also taught me not to be afraid to read on distance, which has now been a great advantage for me. Now I dare to write to the others online and have video calls and make a speech online that I did not dare before. Even this covid gave me the courage to stand in front of the camera and everyone watches me on TV, which I have in my whole life been too shy to do :)

    Do not see difficulties and misery as an obstacle, they make us strong and create the road to our happiness and success through what it teach us. :smiley:

    Since March 2020 we have stayed home. We, being myself and 2 daughters; one of which is disabled and has fragile health. For her health & based on her cardiologist’s recommendation, we have no contact with other people; we get no closer than 20 yards away from any other human (even farther on a windy day). We have ventured out only for cardiology appointments which is over 100 mile drive (one-way). Those days and the 2 weeks following, are very stressful for us. We need to continue this regimen until either the COVID virus dissipates, or until a new vaccine is introduced that is safe for each of us to get (that doesn’t also pose a risk because of some health condition or another).

    Until that time comes, I am thankful for many things. I am thankful all other doctors are able and willing to do tele-health appts. I am thankful we live in a remote area where our neighbors’ houses are more than 20 yards away so we’re still able to enjoy the outdoors, get fresh air and exercise. I am thankful for friends who are willing to pickup groceries for us. I am thankful for pets who also keep us company. I am thankful for internet service & technology these days that makes video conferencing so easy. Some family & friends we actually get to see more often these days than ever before because of video conferencing – and that is just flat out FABULOUS! I am thankful for therapists who still help my daughter’s development via video conferencing and who teach me a lot so I can be their hands during sessions. I am thankful for our garden. It is tiring homeschooling and taking care of the entire household and yard myself, and kids don’t always get along (understatement) which can also be exhausting, yet I am glad we are together & none of us are alone. I am thankful for the residence where their dad is staying, since he works in a hospital & we can’t be around him.  I am thankful for him & other friends who teach me appliance repairs so we don’t have to have repairmen come in the house. I am thankful for FedEx, UPS & USPS and all of their drivers who deliver us parts and other household necessities.

    We have many, many struggles during this time (such as needing to sanitize or quarantine everything coming into the house, even groceries, due to immune disorders …. and way too many other things to list), but for the most part try to look for all the things we are thankful for, that help us get through this time.  We do very much though, look forward to the day when we can freely venture out again off of our 1 little acre of property, and see friends & family up close, maybe even give them a real hug.
