Stuck at home

Today, I’d like to talk about the word “stuck” because it’s timely and relevant to all of us, for right now everyone is stuck at home because of the covid-19.

When you’re stuck, you’re unable to move from where you are. And when you say you’re stuck, the implication is that you are somewhere you don’t want to be. Normally, you don’t get stuck in a wonderful place.

The nationwide state of emergency was first declared on April 7 and now extended until the end of May. You’re expected to STAY HOME unless you’re one of those essential workers. However, if you are staying home not by choice, then you feel like you’re stuck at home.

Note: This story was first published in May 2020.
