Doing business and studying in times of corona

"I have to admit that when they just enforced the measures, a couple of weeks ago, it was a real downer for me. I had so much to deal with: online classes, no longer being able to work, no income... It made me feel really insecure. It took me a few days to recover and rethink things. Because why shouldn't I make the best of this situation?
My initial idea was to organise online training session but this didn't seem like such a good idea given all the free training sessions you can find online on YouTube and Instagram. I had plenty of ideas but now I'm working on something that will be profitable in the long term. To be continued. It's definitely true what they say: difficult situations give you a new perspective.
I'm happy that classes are continuing and fortunately I have the discipline to study. But I'm worried about our practicals. I can try to practice with the people in my 'kot' but I miss the feedback from my lecturers. I'm hopeful that everything will go back to normal in September. I'm so looking forward to it!"
