“At first, I didn't take it seriously, because things seemed a bit normal, I was still going to work and attending classes even though NYC had suspected their first case of coronavirus. Gradually I found myself watermarking CANCELLED!! on upcoming event flyers at work. Yeah, COVID-19 had eventually hit the roof and my daily work attire shifted to a PJ and laptop, on my dining table, creating COVID-19 CUNY alerts for students, faculty, and staff. My Social feed became Corona Feed, I guess these were the new changes Adept should adopt to.
Nevertheless, I believe we should all think about physical and mental health during this time. This is a new lifestyle for most of us, and we should find the best way to cope during this challenging time. I've been to the supermarket once and tried my best to make what I have last, until its somewhat safe to go outdoor again. The idea of putting mask and gloves on to go outdoors, makes it feel as though I'm in a movie risking my life to get necessities. I don't think NYC or the world would ever get back to what it used to be, but we would adapt to what it would be after this pandemic“
