It Was Early March When I Was Preparing For My Final Exams. One Evening We Heard The News That Kuwait Would Be Locked Down Due To The Covid 19 Pandemic And Our School Would Remain Closed Until Further Notice. My Final Exams Got Cancelled And Like Any Other Child Of My Age I Bounced With Happiness! In The Coming Days I Could Sleep Longer, Watch Movies, Play Video Games And Do Whatever I Wished To And Whenever I Liked. But As The Days Passed, I Started Missing My School, My Friends, My Teachers, My Outdoor Play Activities And The Outings With My Family. I Missed My Old Life! But Soon I Realized That I Needed To Accept The Situation And Instead Of Complaining I Should Make The Best Possible Use Of The Time I Had.

The Hardest Challenge Was To Make A Perfect Round Chapati And After Several Days Of Trial And Error I Did Succeed In Making An Almost Round If Not A Perfect Round Chapati.I Also Discovered A Secret Ingredient That Made My Mother’s Food So Special-Her Love.
