I swear, my parents act like they were never teens in a pandemic growing up.
I was watching "Perry Mason, " an HBO show set in the 1930s. Perry gets mail out of his mailbox and I think "no GLOVES? ? " This pandemic has a hold of me.
6: 30amI'm finishing my shower - wrapping my hair in a towel.
Mom: *from my room* "I have something for you! "
Me: "OK." (I'm curious)
I step out of the shower, wrap on a towel, and my mom steps up and gives me a flu shot without so much as a "by your leave."Dr. Surprise strikes again.
My arm hurts=/
Writing a paper, on my computer, in class - I try to use the perfect word but I spell it so badly the spell checker gives up and in effect, says "I got nothin'." I switch words.
Telling a girl to calm down is like trying to put a cat in a tub.
My parents think every guy I talk to is my boyfriend.
If I'm texting and smiling my parents think I have a boyfriend.
I say, I don't know" when I don't care.
For ALL of its downsides virtual school is better because:
My two BFF and I have a facetime call going ALL school day so we
can say snarky things..
I can listen to music on my headphones during classes.
I have multiple screens so I can web-surf during classes.
I don't have to wear shoes or a skirt!
I can put a video up so it looks like I'm paying attention.
I can snack/take a bathroom break whenever I want to.
I don't have to carry a backpack or make locker stops.
I can be late or leave early and blame it on "tech issues".
