Life Within the Pandemic

Some Silver Linings

Kaylee McMillan, Staff Writer

The world’s shut down due to the nationwide health crisis has caused creativity in teens to either whither or flourish. With many places closed or limited, my friends and I  started to look for other ways to explore the world we live in. I believe that our spirit of adventure and creativity has come to life since the pandemic, as we searched for things to find joy in during these dark days.

Though the virus came with grief and caused many hindrances to our everyday lives, it also gave us a chance to connect with the real world and rediscover our creativity and imagination. Exploring nature was an inspiration and being able to spend that time with my favorite people was truly an unreal experience. Our daily lives became filled with life, excitement, and adventure.
