This video is about how the character was given everything he ever wanted and eventually became bored and depressed of his repetitive lifestyle.
I chose this video because of how accurately it represents the way the pandemic made me feel. This video is not to portray that people getting sick and dying and our health being at risk was paradise but more so that my mental state at the beginning of the pandemic was one of relief. To write this sentence does fill me with guilt but I have to admit that waking up and not going to school, or work, or worrying about anything was very peaceful. I felt in tune with myself and able to take care of myself in a way I hadn’t been able to in a long time. However, as the saying goes, “too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.” This was the case for the covid pandemic, overtime my days became very repetitive, online learning was extremely stressful and I felt trapped and stuck in my own home. I could not actively work on my goals and once 2 weeks turned into a few months I was ready to go back out into the world and for everything to go back to normal. The COVID pandemic taught me that we take the little things for granted and I've become a different person overall since the pandemic. Instead of forgetting my mask all the time like I did at the beginning, I now ask “do I need a mask?” before entering a building.
