bucket list

Feeling stir crazy? Thinking about post quarantine can help, whether those plans are crazy adventures or just going to a restaurant. 

With everyone’s idea of a normal life being put on hold, this new normal has made everyone more grateful for things that they previously took for granted. Gathering in groups over 10 people, leaving the house or even going to a favorite store has been put on hold. Thankfully, it will not be put on hold forever.

Yes, going stir crazy is a high possibility during these times, but looking forward to the simplest of events once the global isolation is lifted, can put the mind at ease.

Many people, like Emilija Desknyte, are ready to go about business as usual.

“When quarantine is over, I’m looking forward to seeing my friends again. I probably will be acting a little shy. I feel like I haven’t seen them in years,” she explained.

Josh Pozniak takes a more drastic approach. He has a bucket list of exciting, out-of-the-ordinary things to do.

Post COVID-19, Pozniak plans to travel to New York to watch his friend play in his first major league soccer game, go to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field and visit a casino.

Madison Burfoot, whose birthday is in the beginning of May, plans on celebrating later than usual, since the stay-at-home order has been extended to May 30.She will be looking into traveling with a group of friends to Nashville and staying in an Airbnb that has been approved as a coronavirus-free space.

With life continuously being pushed back, America is bound to have an abundance of plans once the isolation is eventually lifted. Until then, staying safe and healthy, while daydreaming of a normal future, is the priority.
