“I’m very grateful to be employed because I know a lot of people are not.”

Looking back, I think the moment I realized that this — the COVID situation was going to be a big deal was going to spring break people were talking about it and it was finally starting to hit the US and it was kind of: okay, this might be a big deal, but you know, we don’t really know yet.

And then while I was still on spring break all of our classes got canceled, so I actually I came home for break so I didn’t really bring a lot of my stuff I guess because I was I was fully planning on moving back up north to Houghton. Then while I was still on break, the whole world went crazy and all classes got canceled. And everyone was kind of wondering like, “okay, what do we do now?” 

So you have for me that was probably the moment where I realized it was going to be a big deal. I knew it was a big deal like in other parts of the world beforehand. Because I’ve been following what was going on in China, but like that way when  classes got canceled that was kind of like, okay, this is — this is pretty significant.

And as far as how things are going right now, I actually got I got a job. I got an internship earlier this month, which I’m very happy for, because I know a lot of people are unemployed. It’s it’s actually an internship with the construction company. So I’m now technically classified as like an essential worker. Because I work at a construction site now, which it’s a pretty rough job, pretty new experience, but I’m very grateful but to be employed cuz I know a lot of people are not.
