CRIER NARRATIVE: Solitary confinement

Madi Green, Chief Photographer

Lockdown was dreadful. I found myself separated from my friends and loved ones while being confined to the four walls in my room. It was hard for me to adjust to the new living situation mandated by the state. But now that I think back to it, I may have adjusted a little too much. With the chaos of life returning to normal, I was faced again with the burden of schoolwork, sports, clubs and managing an after school job. I wish I would not have taken that time for granted when we had it, but now when the assignments and responsibilities pile up, I often find myself longing for that solitude and sense of ease I overlooked a year ago.
