Being the girl who always gets excited when it comes to birthdays, I had started thinking about my birthday for almost a month. I mean obviously, my “18th birthday”. The current COVID-19 situation was so unpredictable, it was so difficult to decide if I would be able to actually go out or not. there were a lot of emotions which were felt during my birthday week. People in my family were sick, the government kept issuing new guidelines every other day and the amount of cases had a massive increase. I was kind of upset in the beginning about everything since birthdays mean a lot to me but as the days passed by, I had accepted the fact that it was completely okay and I started looking at the positives instead.
