When covid-19 stirred up the world, gone is our old ways of living life. We used to do multitasking wherever we are situated but now, it wasn’t the same as before. As this pandemic continues to dominate every corner of this world, our usual daily routine altered noticeably, and I can attest to that.
Before this pandemic started creating turmoil, I used to be mumbling about how tiring it was doing my school related stuff, and running to and fro for my friends and such, but when covid-19 came and stole the spotlight, my actions and decisions were calculated and plans of tomorrow were cancelled making me less productive for the time being. On the other hand, I want to keep my sanity intact by accomplishing something within my reach, thus when my father asked me and my sister to help him sort things out regarding the modules he is making, I gladly grab the opportunity to lend him a hand, and lessen the work on his plate at least.
At the beginning, I thought it was easy, just type the word, press enter then save, but to my dismay, it doesn’t work like how I imagined it to be, because their work includes staying up all night to ready their learning materials, and remaking every single detail printed on the paper just to aid the student’s education. Right there and then, I saw what really happens behind the curtain, making me realized that their line of work is of no joke.
When I saw their efforts, I automatically thought for once that I, as a student should also take part of my learning involvement because learning is a contagious process, which I cannot rely on others other than myself. Covid-19 may stand as a villain because of the damages it brought us, but surely there is more in this situation than meets the eye and that’s an unarguable notion for someone’s point of view who thinks covid-19 is a blessing in disguise.
