The Covid-19 pandemic is tough to avoid, it’s made a lasting impact on our day-to-day lives and is seemingly all people can talk about. Living through a piece of history objectively sucks, I’d personally love to trade this all in for the very mundane, boring, no-surprises shitshow I was cultivating before. Stop the ride, I want off!
However, we can’t change things so it looks as if we have to roll with them. Which obviously sounds easier than it is. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how long this all lasts, we’re already changed and experiencing something that will be talked about for a long time afterwards. This is definitely the kind of shit that will be coming up in some douchebag’s poly-sci class many years from now.
The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic will be long-lasting and felt by this whole generation of people on the planet. One day we’ll be able to say we remember staying home, the empty TP shelves, and the assholes that were re-selling hand sanitizer. What the fuck is life right now?
