“My senior year vanished before my eyes”

Updated: April 13th, 2021

I was part of the class of 2020. When COVID-19 first became a thing, and we got sent home from school, I genuinely thought it would be only for two weeks max. Jokes on me. They kept extending it and extending it and the rest of my senior year has vanished right before my eyes. We didn’t get to countdown to graduation, we didn’t have one last class to say goodbye to our teachers, we didn’t have a prom. Senior year is something I’ve anticipated for forever, I have been dreaming of a prom ever since I was a little girl and to not get that experience really saddens me. I didn’t get to spend the rest of my senior year in class with all my lovely teachers and my classmates, and I miss it so much every day. I just wish I got to spend those last couple of months in the classroom.
