How COVID has made me grateful for the things I have
by Riley Chapman
As COVID progresses, it makes me think how much easier and better it would be, if it didn’t happen in the first place. I remember the days when we could go to the flying squirrel, or swimming at Southland Leisure Centre (The best swimming pool in Calgary). I don’t know about anybody else, but I hate wearing a mask too. It gets all hot, and scratchy on your face, and it causes pimples (gross!). I also do karate and BJJ ( Brazilain Jiu Jitsu) and they just opened up the dojos again. Believe me, when you’re cooped up in the house for a year, you can’t wait to punch something! Also, I can’t have friends over yet, and after a while I get pretty bored of my family (sorry dad). So I’m so glad school is open or I would have been sooo bored! Also it makes me remember the times I’ve had with my friends before COVID, and that makes me very grateful for when we have fun and went swimming!
I can’t wait for this thing to be over but I also feel terrible for all of those people who lost their lives or suffered from this virus. I feel like I need to be more grateful for even the simple things in life and remember how it can all be taken away. I can’t imagine what it must have been like for the victims of this virus.
Spring is coming, and to be honest, I feel like there is hope and that if anything good came from this, it is a better appreciation for the freedom to just do even basic things like going outside and playing with friends. I can’t wait to go bike riding, go to the outdoor pools and play sports like football, soccer and lacrosse! I’m very excited to get out of the house and enjoy the spring and summer. But until then, we have to get outside as much as we can, have fun with hopefully the last snow, and try to limit the video games. Another thing we can look forward to is spring break! My family and I are lucky to be able to do some spring skiing in Panorama (thanks grandma!). I love it there… the hot tubs, candy shop, oh! And I almost forgot the skiing itself!
There are many things I am now grateful for that COVID gladly showed me even though I know so many people also suffered.
Stay tuned for me next article!
