It’s been a while..

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is safe during this pandemic. I know that evryone is itching to go back out there soon. Before I give a recap of what’s going on in my life since the last time I posted, let me start off by saying

2020 has been an interesting year. With the Coronavirus pandemic, non-essential businesses had to be put on hold, schools had to go fully online, social-distancing, Kobe Bryant and his daughter’s passing, and most recently, the murder of George Floyd, 2020 is not a good year.

Towards the end of last year, all of us were saying that 2020 was going to be a good year. However, none of us were expecting that this was the year where everything took a turn for the worse. All of us are forced to be on lock down and we are forced to practice social distancing when we do leave the house. I never would have expected that this would be the year where the city finally sleeps. I will be the first to admit that when this virus first existed, I did not take it seriously because I thought that the virus outbreak was just another way for the government to make money. However, I started to notice how serious the virus is once non-essential businesses were forced to shut down and all of us were forced to be quarantined in our houses. This reminded me of the show “The Walking Dead” since a virus outbreak has forced people to isolate themselves. The only difference between this show and what we are experiencing now is we are not zombies.  If people decided to make a movie about this year, it would be titled: “2020: When Life was a Standstill.”

Now, to do a recap of what has happened in my life since the last time I posted. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics.

I was also forced to stay home with my parents due to the pandemic. I do not have to worry about money since I am living with my parents, who are both essential workers. My mother is a health care worker and my father is a building manager. I talk to my grandparents and my cousins and they have been doing well.

Even though I have been doing well physically and financially, this pandemic has been tough on me mentally. As someone who is suffering from depression and anxiety, I have been having some good days, but I have been having a lot of bad days, too. This pandemic has made me regress to not discussing my feelings to anyone since I know that there are people who are in worse situations than me. I have not told my family because I do not want them to worry about me. So, I have been pretending that I am ok on the outside when I am really not on the inside. All I can do is keep fighting and keep telling myself that everything is going to be ok.

I want to start posting again about something that I’m still learning about myself: Mental Health. Talking about mental health is something that I hope that one day, it won’t be looked at as a bad thing. In other words, just because you are struggling with mental health does not mean that you are insignificant. That’s something that I am trying to figure out myself. So, join me next time as I blog more about my experiences with my mental health and what you can do to improve on your mental health. You can also follow me on Twitter at Until then, stay safe!
