T.K., 21, a student in Saitama, Japan

Under this situation, I am not doing anything recently, but just slacking off everyday. To be honest, my life does not change a lot compared to before this situation started. I found a bunch of new things under this tough situation .First, I contacted my old friends after a long time. Since we did not have a ligit reason to talk before, we had not got any chance to meet. After this is over, we are supposed to meet directly after graduated from high school. As a silver lining, COVID-19 unexpectedly made a bridge between us. It is not limited to friendship. Families spends a lot of time together. According to some news, people feel stressful due to too much spending time with their family. We can see how strong our family bond is. In the near future, the style of working can possibly change. We, families, can spend more time than before due to this circumstance, development of technology and so on. We have to prepare for unheard-of things. Hopefully, this situation gets better soon. I will just do what I can do. Too much typycal experience.
