Hopes for the Normal

Hopes for the Normal

Sriya Pallapothu, Hot Topics Columnist

My hope for 2022 is that it resembles more of a normal year than 2021. 2021 was a crazy year, especially with remote/hybrid learning. I hope that the covid cases decrease, so that we can remain in-person for the rest of the school year. I think that 2021 was difficult for everyone, so it’s important to move on and remain optimistic for the future. 

For 2022, I’m looking forward to spending more time with family and friends. I think that the worst part of the pandemic was not being able to visit other people. I’m hopeful that in 2022 I’ll be able to be more social again. My favorite part of 2021 was the holiday season, because I spent time with my family. I hope to continue those happy traditions and memories in 2022!
