In reality, we look at our lives to see where we are and how we stand with people and when a pandemic breaks out we see who is truly there for us. For me personally, the pandemic didn’t really affect me besides having to finish my classes online and me being played off of work. I’m in housing so the rent situation wasn’t really an issue. So in this pandemic, there wasn’t really an impact because I was already unemployed.

I have my money issues settled but what really impacted me is those who said they’d be there for me but weren’t. We all have different struggles whether it’s financial or emotional. The pandemic made me see who would be there for you when you need them. If it wasn’t for my computer I think the isolation would’ve probably ended me but in times of crisis, it’s good to be prepared and ready for whatever is to come. Luckily for me, I try to be prepared in case of any emergencies.

In times of need, we must always be ready and willing to help others and always be there when it’s truly needed. College was probably more challenging given the fact I’m a computer science major and some stuff can’t be taught through a computer screen and yes there was a time where I started panicking due to lack of funds to pay bills. But I eventually figured things out and everything went for the better but right now isn’t a time to relax due to more storms ahead brewing.

I feel that this virus is only the beginning of further issues to come.
