Due to the pandemic, doing everything online has definitely had a very big impact on my life. From doing online school and being stuck mostly in my room due to Covid protocols, it has definitely changed my lifestyle and personality. Before the pandemic, I was a very outgoing and outdoorsy guy, but going through the pandemic changed me so now I barely go outside and would rather stay by myself than go out with friends. Wearing masks at all times makes it feel like I’m distant from everyone and even though I’ve been at Santa Clara for a year, I have barely gotten to know anyone. I’m glad that the country is coming out of the pandemic, and hopefully I can turn my life around again in order to gain the motivation and joy for life that I had before the pandemic.
