What I Wish

Everyone has a wish list for the holidays. If you are a gamer or just like to play video games, your wish list probably includes the new PS-5. For those who love animals, you may want a new puppy. For those of you who have an outgoing personality like me, you probably wish for an end to this pandemic.

My Holiday Wish List

This year, I just want the COVID-19 pandemic to end. I miss spending time with my family and friends. I also miss traveling to places with my power wheelchair. I made all these plans with my friends. We wanted to go to the movies, the mall, bowling and other activities. My father wanted us to travel to to Puerto Rico for the holidays. I just can’t believe that I have to put everything on hold until this pandemic is over.

Once this pandemic is over, I won’t have to wear a mask ever again. If the pandemic ended right now, what would you do? There are so many things that I would do. I would go to the movies. I want to go to Times Square in New York City. I went to Niagara Falls in July of 2016 and I want to go back with my family and friends. I want to also book a flight to Puerto Rico and stay there for more than three weeks. Other places I want to go? I want to take my family to see the Statue of Liberty. During my high school career, I went to a sea music festival with my singing group in Mystic, Connecticut. I’d love to go back there again.

Abilities Expos

I attended many Abilities Expos in the past and want to attend more. I like talking to people about Quantum® products and showing them my power wheelchair.

Other things I want to do is hold parties for any occasion and invite my friends and family to my house. I miss going to concerts. Don’t get me wrong. I do enjoy the virtual live concerts, however, I miss going out and I prefer to see the performers in person.
