Walking into school after months of online learning, it was weird identifying a classmate by only their eyes, with half of their face covered by a surgical mask. It was an eerie feeling, and almost unreal like in the movies. My senior year was supposed to be filled with memories that would last a lifetime, but at this rate I could tell that it was going to be everything but normal.
Transferring schools as a senior was already difficult enough, but having to make friends with a mask on and sitting far apart was almost impossible. It was even harder to adapt with half of the school attending on the opposite day. Now almost a year later with graduation coming up, I won’t even have crossed paths with half of my classmates.
