Day #53: Friday, May 8, 2020
May 9, 2020
When I woke up this morning around 10:30 a.m. I was glad I didn’t have to do e-learning. Honestly, I hate e-learning and I’m glad that we only have about two weeks left. Then I got up to French toast, a personal favorite of mine. Well, anything could be a personal favorite at this point because we’ve had pancakes for the last six days now and I’m starting to get sick of them. After breakfast I went back to my room with my friend who has been staying with me. After a while we heard some arguing in the kitchen. My mom and her boyfriend were arguing because we as a family have been struggling to keep up with rent and pay for groceries due to this whole coronavirus pandemic. With my mom on unemployment and having not received her check yet tensions have been really high for our family. But even through it all my mom and I have still found time to help out my uncle run his small business. He owns a bar/restaurant called Lindy’s Chili & Gertie’s Ice Cream. My mom takes orders and I do the delivery service. I run off tips from customers and what ever I make goes back to my mom to help out our family in any way I can. But yeah work is very tiring, I work from 3-8 p.m. Monday through Saturdays. Gotta do what you gotta do to survive this pandemic, even if it means sacrificing your safety.
