我的父親

在COVID-19病毒的时候,我有挺多可以感谢的人帮我过度我的生活末期以来最难的时候。最重要的,我的英雄是我的父亲。每次我有一个问题,差不多是关于我的母亲或者妹妹,他都会听,连工作也是。这应该是因为他很少在家,才一周一天,所以我没有看他太久让我对他感觉烦恼。我没怎么想我对他多感谢直到了这个时期因为我有朋友在学校陪伴我。可是在这个时候,我遗憾的卡在我的家和没有可以防止声音的墙。这个就代表我每天都被大的声音和吵架给围绕着。这个让我很难专心在作业上,因为有时候我都不可以听到我老师在谷歌的视频说话。可是,应该是我自己的问题因为肯定有一些人比我还更不好。他教了让我头脑爆炸的建议,好像我应该不要担心别人做什么,重点集中在自己,还有不要浪费我喂一的生活。

My Father

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have plenty of people to thank for helping me get through the toughest part of my life so far. Most importantly, my hero is my father. Whenever I have a problem, usually about my mother or my sister, he is almost always there to lend an ear even when he’s working. This is probably because he’s not home often, only once a week, for me to grow tired of seeing him. I never really thought about how grateful I am for him until during the pandemic because my friends in school were keeping me company. However during this time, I am unfortunately stuck inside my house with no soundproof walls. This means that I’m surrounded by loud noise and arguments everyday. This makes it extremely difficult for me to concentrate on my homework, and sometimes I can’t even hear my teacher speaking in a Google Meet. Though, it’s probably my own issues because I’m sure some others have it worse than me. He has taught me a lot and given me advice that has blown my mind. This includes  how to stop worrying about what others do, focus on myself, and to not waste my only life.
