#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter L

Post-pandemic T is looking forward to life being more normal.

I mean, I guess that is the point on this whole challenge (thanks again for the topic, Paul!). I honestly don’t think life will ever “go back to normal”. We will always live with the knowledge of what has happened over the last calendar year and into the future as we continue to deal with this pandemic.

We have seen how some governments have risen to the challenge, and how utterly disappointing some other governments have been. How some citizens have been following the rules (me) and how some have been selfish and irresponsible with the health and well being of others. I honestly have completely different opinions of some people in my life, some people who have been there since I was born!! 34 years (tomorrow!!!! ya’ll tomorrow is my birthday!) and yet here we are and I have absolutely ZERO respect for them anymore. Or the parents of students who I held in such high regard in September and now, after hearing of vacations and play dates and birthday parties, I can’t imagine ever having a good opinion of again.

I don’t think we will ever forget. Maybe mask wearing will be part of our lives like it is in Asia? When your child has a little cold they will wear a mask to school and continue on as normal? Maybe online learning will be more of an option as we move forward? Maybe people living with disabilities will be given more respect and better job opportunities now that we see that almost all jobs CAN be done remotely?

So maybe normal isn’t the right word, but I am looking forward to more normalcy.

  1. I agree that we will probably never get back to what we used to consider normal but maybe some of the changes are for the better? I almost think I’m a little grateful for the pandemic because I think that our ex-president’s mishandling of it was one of the reasons that he was not reelected. If he had handled the pandemic better, maybe people would have thought he was okay, WHICH HE IS NOT! I mean, clearly I didn’t really want all those people to die but I shudder to think what four more years would have been like if he had been allowed to continue.

  2. I think life will be a new normal – there will be some things that never go back to the before. But I hope it won’t be too different from the old normal.

    • I think for Australia it will be very similar to the old normal. But probably over here there will be a new life to adjust to haha but I think for the better! People will be able to take sick days easier, work from work easier when needed, etc. But we will have to wait and see what happens!
