So i put this in a separate thread from the main covid thread, as this is more personal to me.
I'm just thinking, and wondering (out loud) if we have this "second wave" they have been telling us about right from the start, are we likely to enter into another nationwide lock down? Schools, businesses etc etc all having to close again? We're already in another recession, 100's of thousands left unemployed and further job losses keep happening, I don't think the country can cope with any more restrictions.
I'm wondering from a selfish perspective really, and I know a lot of people will be affected and will also be in the same or similar situations.
But, I started college last September, cost enough at nearly 2k for the course, March came and the college shut down and there was no more college, I had planned and was supposed to be going back again in September this year to do the next level of my course, at a cost of almost double the first year.
My worry is that, with hospitals and the gov and everyone else getting ready for a second wave, what does this mean for people who have plans for the future? For me, I can't / don't want to risk paying out for the college to close again.
For the record, I know my "problem" is small compared to a lot of other things going on right now, but it would be nice to be able to actually make a plan for the future, I'm stuck in limbo as it is currently, which is making things very stressful, but really don't know what to do, wait another year? Risk it?
It just feels like I have to put my life on hold while all this (hopefully) blows over.
What do you all think?
