Last day ever. Thank god. I don’t think I could’ve done this, any of this, anymore. I had my last zoom of high school ever today with my math class, and this will be my last assignment for high school. Once I’m done with this, it’s all over. This was definitely not the last day I was expecting, but it’s okay. I think I’ll always be a little bitter about this whole situation, but I have to count my blessings and realize that I was barely affected by all of this compared to some people.
I can’t wait to walk across the stage. I think that will be really memorable and “historical.” I guess.
My plans for the summer is to try to reteach myself some French before my French course in the fall, hang out with friends, and hopefully get my job back. Maybe I’ll take up a cool hobby. Like karate. That would be fun.
Before I go, I just want to say one more thing. COOL MATH GAMES MOST VIEWED STORY FOREVER!!!!!
EDIT: My ending didn’t feel sappy enough so it’s midnight and I’m editing this. I will genuinely miss being in Room 205 twice a day, five days a week. There was so many things I still wanted to do. I never did make hot chocolate in the Keurig machine. Last year when the seniors left they all gave sad speeches and I wanted to do that. My (first and) last 205 kick ball game.
Also, I’m totally copying this idea from Anthony. I know future me will definitely randomly remember these blog posts one day and I wanna ask a couple things.
Did you achieve your goal of graduating in five years? Do you have four guinea pigs like you hoped for? Do you still talk to anyone from high school? Is the world a better place? How much has your life changed since May 28, 2020? And most importantly, are you happy?

Today I got up earlier so I had plenty of time to shower before my English zoom. It was my second to last zoom of high school ever. I had to read my poem about my senior project to the class, which honestly wasn’t terrible. Public speaking is a lot easier when you can think, “It doesn’t matter if you mess up, you’re never going to see pretty much any of these people ever again.”
After my zoom it was time for me to go pick up my locker stuff from school. It was very anticlimactic. I don’t know why I expected it to be more exciting, but it was nothing of the sort. The only fun thing was getting my yearbook. It looks really nice this year, although I’m only in group pictures.
Later in the day I met up with two of my friends in the junior lot to hang out in our cars. It was a lot of fun to catch up about the past week, and I really like just seeing my friends in real life instead of texting. I can’t believe I’m saying that I miss hanging out with people, but here we are.
Thursday, May 21, 2020
Today I woke up early after going to bed at midnight, which is quite early for me. I was actually productive with this time and finished all my English homework. I then showered and picked u my room a little before going to yet another doctor’s appointment, but it was really quick.
Later this afternoon my mom, sister, and I went on a walk. By the end of it my legs were red and itchy. I didn’t have sun screen on, but I didn’t think it was necessary for a short walk on a 70 degree day. Being blonde and pale is a curse.
My mo also went grocery shopping today, which also means there is now ice cream in the house. It’s more bearable to live here now.
Tuesday, May 19, 2020
I began my lovely Tuesday morning with a doctor’s appointment. It was just a yearly check up to see if I’m healthy. It was weird because we had to wear masks, and couldn’t go inside until they called us in. I found out I’m 5’8.75″ inches, which was extremely depressing to find out. I had to get my second round of meningitis shots, and my arm has been hurting since.
Afterwards my mom drove us through Taco Bell before I had my AP Psychology test. Luckily the soreness in my arm hadn’t fully kicked in at this point, and I think I did pretty good. I kind of have to do good, because I was put into a higher psychology class for next year and it would be a little embarrassing to be taken out of it after failing.
The rest of my day, like all days, was uneventful.
Thursday, May 14, 2020
We’re almost halfway through the month! May is going slower than April, but going faster than March. I don’t know if I could live through a month as long as March ever again.
Today I made my schedule for the next school year. I have some pretty interesting classes. I’m taking French, which is okay I guess, but I have it four days in a row for an hour each time for both semesters. I might die from Francais overload. They also just assumed I would pass the AP Psychology exam and put me in a higher psychology class, which I do not think was a very great idea…
Other than that, it was a boring day at my house. The weather was bad, so we couldn’t even go on a walk. I really want 80 degrees and sunny summer days. I feel like the weather has never been this terrible so late into the year.
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
It has officially been 3 years since we got my guinea pig, Bo! Sadly he is still not as active as he used to be before he got sick.
I took my AP European history test today. I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it, but I’m going to anyways. Before the test, I made sure to cover up my laptop camera. I don’t know if College Board was actually hacking into webcams to find cheaters (which I did not do, thank you very much) the idea of it still freaked me out. I was really worried about the site crashing when I had to turn in my essay, but it went perfectly fine. I can never tell after writing an essay if I actually did good or not, so I will be surprised by whatever score I get in the summer. My prompt was pretty easy, I’m just not sure if I conveyed my ideas correctly.
Friday, May 8, 2020
Happy Friday! Another week almost over. This week was actually a little bit exciting, yet the days still seemed to all go together.
Bo is not a very happy guinea pig. We have to wrap him in a towel with his arms tucked in, and then literally shove the syringe in his mouth. Despite the marshmallow flavor, he obviously hates it. I think the medicine is also upsetting his stomach, because he hasn’t been eating all of his carrots. Bo is a fat guinea pig. He has NEVER not finished his carrots or lettuce before, he’s usually begging for more. I hope these next 2 weeks go by fast,
I got Starbucks today. No messed up order this time!
Things are slowly starting to catch up t me. I have 2 AP tests soon, both of which I have not studied for. I also have my scheduling for college for the fall next week, and I still have not taken my math placement test. I’ve had months to do it. I’m honestly worried they’re going to place me farther down than I already am once they get my results. My brain has not been able to do math lately, but it’s also my fault for waiting to the last minute.
Tuesday, May 5, 2020
This was probably my most interesting day of quarantine so far. I woke up this morning around 11am after I stayed up half the night with my toe throbbing. I’m sure none of you want to hear about my throbbing toe, but it’s an important detail for the day. My mom made me a doctor’s appointment around the same time Haley, Anthony, and I were going to go sign the rock, but we decided we would just do it after.
I basically just watched The Office (Season 9- the worst season of possibly any show. I could write a whole opinion story on that) before we went to the doctors. I had to get a shot, maybe two shots, in y foot, and it was completely numb for the rest of the day. Luckily my mom felt bad so I got her to drive through Starbucks for me, although they did mess up my order. I didn’t feel safe driving while my big toe on my right foot felt ten times bigger than normal so my name is still sadly not on the rock.
My mom and I got home and had chicken tacos. My mom’s chicken tacos are good, but I prefer beef for my Cinco de Mayo. However, this past week when she went to the grocery store she couldn’t find any ground beef. I find this extremely concerning, of course. I also did my English homework, for which I had to read “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas.” I don’t know why, but it made me tear up a little. I will not be mentioning that detail in the Zoom call tomorrow.
At 9:30pm, my guinea pig, Bo, had an appointment. Yesterday, while I was playing with him, I noticed a bump on his back. It kinda looked like a big raised mole. I didn’t think much of it to be honest, because he didn’t even flinch when I was touching and looking at it. I mainly used his bump as an excuse to get him into the vet to get his nails trimmed, which they wouldn’t have done otherwise. However, it turns out Bo had an abscess. He had to get it taken off, and he has to have antibiotics and pain meds. I felt really bad, even though I didn’t do anything wrong. Also, he now has a little bald spot. It is not super cute, but luckily he has the rest of him to make up for it. I’m nervous about the medicine side effects, so I’m going to sleep downstairs with him tonight.
Tuesday, April 28, 2020
Today I went to Utica to meet up with one of my friend and talk. The weather was absolutely amazing, but it sucks tomorrow it’s all going to go away. Anyways, let me tell you after being in that parking lot for two hours, people are not social distancing. I’m honestly not surprised about this at all, I knew the second it got nice out people would start breaking the rules.
We got our masks today. They’re just flimsy medical masks that are a bit too big, but they’re better than nothing, or using a bandanna that constantly slides ff your face.
My sister and I went on a bike ride this evening. I haven’t ridden a bike in probably two years, but it was a lot of fun.
Monday, April 27, 2020
Even though it’s a Monday, today has been a pretty great day. I woke up, and for once, I didn’t want to go back to bed. I had my coffee, cleaned my guinea pig, Bo’s, cage a little, and listened to music.
Today was another “school day” and I was back to the homework grind. I must say, I loved having the weekend off. Even though I am not technically in school, and I get way more school work than I’m used to, I am still stressed a lot. I can’t really blame myself though, I am after all living through a global pandemic. I did my AP Euro homework, looked through my AP Lit homework, and then decided to talk a walk with my mom and sister.
On our walk we saw my friend, who was going to meet in a parking lot with someone. Now we’re planning on doing the same later this week. Wait, I feel like that sounds wrong.
After our walk I watched “The Office” for about an hour. I started Season 8, which I honestly don’y remember at all from the first time I watched it. The show really does go a bit downhill after Michael leaves, but I still love it nonetheless.
I just had dinner, and now I’m going to eat some ice cream with brownies. My Quarantine 15 is real.
Friday, April 24, 2020
Today I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed to do all my homework. I am glad to report I did absolutely none of it. I was going to do it, but the idea was too painful. I’m going to finish it all on Sunday, when it’s due. Even though I now have plenty of time, I’m still procrastinating like usual.
Gretchen Whitmer extended the stay at home order this morning. It’s a bit more relaxed, but none of it really applies to me. I still can’t go to work, but my dad now can, so that’s good. My dad is an extrovert, and you could tell how excited he was when the window cleaners came the other day so he could have someone new to talk to.
This afternoon my mom, sister, and I went on a short ride, and got Culver’s ice cream (Vanilla Concrete Mixer with cookie dough and brownie chunks!) through the drive thru. I’m actually eating it right now while writing this. I’m also watching The Office, but it’s the sad episode where Michael leaves. I hope I didn’t spoil it for anyone, but if I did that’s your problem.
My friend, Amber, just drove past and I ran outside to say hi. I miss all my friends so much. I made plans on Wednesday to hang out with one of my other friends in a parking lot, parked 6 feet apart of course. I cannot believe how excited I am to sit in a parking lot.
I can’t believe I almost forgot to include thus, but I found out today I am a salutatorian. It feels nice to see my hard work pay off.
Thursday, April 23, 2020
I began my day today at 10:30am, exhausted after staying up until 3am. I accidentally took a nap yesterday at 8:30pm, and after that I was over. I had coffee cake, which I begged my mom to buy me because I’ve been craving it.
What did I do after that? I honestly don’t know. I think I did some math homework, but I think I was mainly on TikTok. My brain is slowly deteriorating.
Side note, I’m writing this update on my phone and absolutely hate it. I had a French keyboard years ago, and even after deleting it and never typing out a single French word in years, it still autocorrects my wrong English spelled words to French words.
Anyways, at 3pm there was a live for the MIPA Awards. It was nice to see Haley and Mrs. Smale awarded, even though it was not the same as it would’ve been with a ceremony in real life. My Snapchat memory from a year ago was MIPA, and I miss it.
Wednesday, April 22, 2020
I miss actually going to school a lot. Being at home and doing all my work here is just not the same. First of all, I get distracted every 5 seconds, I have an attention span of a goldfish. I can’t believe I used to be able to sit down and read books for hours. Oh junior high me had such an amazing mind.
I signed up for a Zoom meeting with GVSU tomorrow. It will probably have all the same information I already have learned, but it still makes me nervous. I have obviously always been nervous about college, but this whole pandemic just makes me feel even more worried about it all. It just feels like everything is so up in the air right now. I’m trying to be optimistic, but that is nit my specialty.
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
Online learning really began today, with 2 different Zoom meetings. My first one was at 10:30am with my PreCalculus class. This was the first math zoom I’ve actually been to, since all the other ones were at the exact same time as some other class. It was very helpful. Yesterday I was trying to look through the notes and gave up halfway through in confusion. Today I understood it in a couple seconds after my teacher started explaining it, so I will definitely be making sure I won’t miss any more.
After making a smoothie and watching some YouTube videos, I had my next Zoom meeting at 1 for Newspaper. This issue is going to be longer, and I can’t believe it’s going to be my last issue.
I finished the homework I started yesterday, and since then I’ve just been hanging out and watching The Office. Right now my sister, mom, and I are going to watch the Impractical Jokers movie. Hopefully it’s a bit funny to keep my spirits up.
Monday, April 20, 2020
Today I woke up early to have a breakfast before my 10:30am Zoom call. Instead I woke up to a text saying that my Zoom meeting was moved to noon, but at this point I was already awake. Instead of getting up to get breakfast, I stayed in bed for over an hour looking at Schoology and freaking out about the fact my teachers are actually giving out work. I’ve already been doing the work for the most part, but it hasn’t had a due date for me to worry about. I think this first week is going to be rough, but afterwards it will smooth out.
I went on my AP English Zoom meeting at noon, and I was glad to hear that seniors still end the year on May 30. I can not keep doing this online school stuff until June.
Honestly, my favorite part of Zoom meetings is texting other people in the class while it’s happening, and seeing and figuring out others who are doing the same. It’s not the same as sitting next to everyone in class, I still personally think it’s so nice to see everyone’s faces.
I think one of my goals in quarantine should’ve been to learn how to type. I never did properly learn, and while I’m typing this out I realize how stupid I must look for constantly looking down at my keyboard. My neck hurts.
After the Zoom meeting was over, I showered, finally ate (quesadilla, that’s all I eat at this point) and sat down to do my homework. I finished my first hour work, but all the rest I got assigned today is only half done. I figure I have 2 days to do everything, so getting half done one day and half done the next is efficient enough.
My family is starting to drive me insane at this point, so I’ve been rewatching Dance Moms to distract myself. I used to be a huge fan of this show. I think I stopped watching it after Chloe left, but this time I actually want to watch the whole series. My favorite is still Chloe, and I still cannot stand Maddie. She is such a brat and I could honestly rant for a whole hour about it, but I won’t. I’m still on Season 1 and I can’t wait for Cathy to leave and go back to Candy Apples where she belongs so that classic dance company rivalry can start.
Now I’m going to watch Dance Moms and maybe journal a bit. Journaling is what has kept me sane, I can sit down at my desk and not move for hours, just cutting, gluing and writing while never getting bored. I also might read a bit. I’ve been wanting to reread The Selection series ever since the news that it’s being turned into a movie came out a week ago. To be honest when it comes to books, I would much rather they be turned into TV shows than movies. That way, the books could perhaps be more accurately portrayed.
Thursday, April 16, 2020
Today I actually got up and worked out. If you know me at all, this is quite shocking. It was incredibly boring and sweaty, and I don’t see myself doing it ever again. Hopefully I have abs by tomorrow.
After that I read the three short stories I was actually supposed to start reading a couple of days ago. I actually liked one of them, “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. It’s a futuristic short story about how everyone is the same in the future, with everyone having something to “handicap” them for this to happen. It’s kinda crazy to think about, and also it was the only short story I understood.
Wisconsin just extended their Stay-At-Home order until May 26th. Their cases of coronavirus don’t even come close to ours, and yet they’re already planning on being in quarantine longer than us. I honestly don’t think I can make it another month. When I sit down and try to remember what I did the day before, I genuinely cannot remember. My brain is mush. I just want to see my friends and go out to places.
Wednesday, April 15, 2020
I began the day on the coach in the basement. My sister and I, Grace, had decided to sleep down there and watch “The Office” all night. I slept terribly and woke up with a headache. I slept for most the morning to compensate for all the lost sleep from last night.
Before we watched “The Office”, we watched the movie “Train To Busan.” It’s a Korean movie, and was the hit Korean movie before “Parasite.” I had heard a lot of hype around this movie, particularly that the end is heartbreaking. I did cry a little, but honestly the end just frustrates me. Luckily, the sequel is coming out this summer (well, was, probably not anymore) and hopefully that will make me like the ending better.
For lunch, I made a smoothie and I must say, it was spectacular. I miss Tropical Smoothie. I’m going to go crazy with junk food once this whole ordeal is over.
Tuesday, April 14, 2020
Today was pretty uneventful, except for when my mom brought home McDonald’s. Say what you want about fast food, Big Macs are a gift from heaven, and having one enlightened my mood significantly.
I also tried to do some math today. Despite being one of the only kids in the class who usually understands what’s going on, I am completely lost. Definitely not a good sign.
Monday, April 13, 2020
Spring Break is officially over (I think) and it’s time to get back to blogging. Over the past week I have done no school work, which is kind of a problem considering the fact I didn’t finish all my work from the week before. Today I woke up and actually did a little bit of AP Euro homework, one of the subjects I personally consider more important since I’m taking the AP test. Speaking of the AP test, my AP Euro test is all based on one question. That’s my entire grade. Apparently this is old news, but I just found out today. I was pretty upset to say the least, and had to have couple cookies to calm down. Yesterday, Parker dropped off cookies at my front door and I ran to the front door to wave to them as they drove away. If Parker tells you I cried, they’re lying, okay?
The rest of the day I napped. I’ve gotten into this really bad habit of waking up for about 2 to 3 hours before inevitably taking a long nap all afternoon. I need to stop doing this, because I think I’m gaining my “Freshman Fifteen” before I even go off to college…. if I go off to college.
Sunday, April 5, 2020
Happy Palm Sunday! It doesn’t really feel like it. Usually my family and I go to church and hear the children sing and get palm branches. This year though, we streamed the church service over the TV while drinking coffee and playing with my guinea pig. Very different.
These past couple days, I’ve done really little homework. Despite the fact I’ve taken multiple AP classes over the years, if we’re being honest, I have never gotten a ton of homework. Most of the time, I only have 10-15 minutes of homework a night, if any at all. But due to this, I am unable to just simply sit down and do homework. The same goes with studying. I have no idea how to study, I just simply look over the review guide a couple minutes before the test and ace the test. My way of doing school and my lack of homework has never been a problem, that is, until now.
<y teachers keep assigning homework. The problem is, I need to do all my work at home. I cannot concentrate on anything for more than ten minutes. At this point, I know I’m graduating, and if I honestly don’t do anything at all I think I’ll be fine. But I feel guilty not doing it, and like I’m letting my teachers down.
Luckily, right now is spring break and I can catch up. Honestly the fact we’re getting a spring break is kind of stupid to me, but I also cannot complain. I hope everyone is having the senior spring break of their dreams.
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Today my mom, sister, and I went out and drove around for 2 hours. It was lot of fun, especially when we went through the Culver’s drive thru and got milkshakes. We’re trying really hard to follow the rules and not leave the house, but sometimes we crack. My ice cream was good though. We drove past Utica, Eppler, and my mom’s school, Willow Woods. I think I can speak for all of us that we really miss school.
When we got home, I started writing my essay. Technically, I was supposed to write it on either Monday or yesterday. I sat down, started the forty-five minute timer, and opened up Word. After ten minutes, I paused the timer, closed Word, and now here I am, writing this blog. Isn’t that pathetic? I couldn’t even write more than ten minutes in my own home. Luckily, I am not taking that AP test.
Anyways, while you’re here, check out this awesome story.
Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Today I woke up very late, around eleven. That’s early for some people amazingly. After doing nothing for 3 hours, I had a Zoom meeting with the 205 crew. I’ve (somehow) have been missing everyone in that class. It was good to see everyone’s faces.
After that, I decided to work on some homework. I wanted to do AP Euro, and the assignment I was greeted with was a worksheet that went with an hour and a half long video. I thought this was insane, but the video was actually pretty good. It was a documentary on Stalin. You only needed to watch about half the video to complete all the questions, but I might end up finishing it tomorrow for fun.
But due to me staring at my screen for so long, I developed bad headache, so I had to go lay in my dark room until it passed. While I was laying there, I really got to thinking. Johnson and Johnson are trying to create a vaccine for COVID-19, and they said they’ll start having human trials of the vaccine by September. So you’re trying to tell me you can come up with a vaccine for a new virus in a matter of months, but you still don’t have the cure to cancer, something that has supposedly been researched for years? Something does not add up here.
Monday, March 30, 2020
Today I took a depression nap after making a sad smoothie. Then I made a sad friendship bracelet thinking about my sad life. Sad.
My original thought was that I was going to buy something every couple of days to give me a boost of serotonin and something to look forward to. However, my mom isn’t letting me spend any money since I am out of work. Sad.
Saturday, March 28, 2020
I just realized I have not uploaded on here in a couple days, so I wanted to do that. Instead, I have sat here for the past 10 minutes trying to figure out what the heck I’ve been doing these past couple days. Last night my whole family watched 1917 together, and my mom and my sister had taken a walk with me before that. Other than that, I have done absolutely nothing. I feel bad, but that’s how boring my life is.
I have had 2 different zoom sessions with my AP Lit and Comp class. I thought I might be less shy in chats like this, but it’s just like class in the aspect of everyone listening and staring at you. Very scary, I will keep being quiet.
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
And just like that, it has been 4 days since I’ve last posted.
I’ve been doing… nothing. I haven’t even been really doing homework. Yesterday my teachers started posting on Schoology. My AP Lit teacher says she wants me to have my book all read by this weekend, and while I do have all the time in the world, it is just not realistic. We are also having a Zoom conference or whatever it’s called tomorrow. These past couple weeks I’ve been seeing students across the countries using Zoom and every time I’ve thought, “Wow, I’m glad none of my teachers are doing that.” I guess I spoke too soon. I hope it’s not that bad.
Yesterday in the morning the Governor ordered that we all stay home. I was a little confused by this, because I thought that’s what everyone was all already doing, but I guess not. I keep hearing people talk about police patrolling to make sure the order is enforced, but honestly the idea is laughable. If I got to my friends’ house for something, what are you going to do, arrest me? I would just laugh in the officer’s face to be honest.
The Governor also issued an order for schools to stay closed another week. Obviously this doesn’t effect us much because of our already planned spring break, but it was still a bit worrying to see. I have a feeling she’s going to have to add an extra week or 2 on top of that, although I hope it doesn’t come to that.
Right now I’m eating my Dairy Queen I bought yesterday before the shutdown at midnight. It’s crazy to think that this is my new reality. I just hope everything goes back to normal within the next month.
Saturday, March 21, 2020
Today was a much better day. My mom realized that I was losing my marbles and decided we could venture out of the house for a bit. At Emagine right now you can buy a huge bag of popcorn for either $15 or a $25 giftcard. After securing the popcorn (and butter) we went to Krispy Kreme where we got some donuts through the drive through. And, since Taco Bell was right there, of course we had to get Baja Blasts. So thanks to food and actually getting some Vitamin D, this day was a lot better.
I have been listening a lot to My Chemical Romance in the past 24 hours. While their lyrics can be quite depressing, the fast pace of the songs and the nostalgia of junior high really gets me pumped up.
After I am done writing this blog, I think I will play the Sims and bullet journal. Maybe a little bit of online shopping, so my purchase could be something to look forward to. What an eventful Saturday!
Friday, March 20, 2020
Literally the only thing I did today was go on a walk. Other than that I have done nothing.
I am losing my marbles. That’s it. I don’t even care enough to make up goals for tomorrow because I know I’ll just nap. School please come again soon.
Thursday, March 19, 2020
Day 4 of this break, and I’m slowly starting to accept the reality of it all more. I’m really worried about graduation, as it seems more and more schools are deciding to shut down for the rest of the year. A lot of girls are worried about prom, but considering the fact I wasn’t planning on going anyways, I don’t really care about that. (The little but I do care is for Haley Grooms because she bought not one, but two dresses)
I feel like the districts who are already shutting down until the end of the year are making a very rash decision that they will regret later. I can’t tell if the panic is getting worse or better, or maybe I’m just getting used to people being in a panic over this.
I can’t believe that just a week ago, I was telling people it was ridiculous to think we would get Friday off because of the virus. I guess technically I was right about Friday, but I never expected to wake up the next morning to the news I did.
Today I read maybe 10 pages of my book before giving up. (I hope my English teacher isn’t seeing these blogs.) I put up some posters in my room, and went through the big bin of nail polish I have and threw away some old ones I had. I also played some Sims 4, which was fun until my one sim decided to go around and snatch all the other sims’ wigs. Now half my sims are bald. That’s a tomorrow problem, just like my English book.
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
I was actually allowed to leave the house today. My mom let me go to my friend’s house , on the conditions that I only go there and absolutely no where else. It was fun, and I needed that interaction.
I didn’t read three chapters of my book, but last night I suddenly had a ton of energy and cleaned my whole room. Now it’s a lot more enjoyable to be in there during this break.
I wish I had more to update, but life is so boring at the moment and I don’t even remember everything that I do because my brain immediately gets rid of it because it’s all unimportant. My goals tomorrow are to actually read my book, finish my AP European history vocab, and maybe bullet journal a little.
Tuesday, March 17, 2020
I didn’t do much today. My mom made my sister and I go on a walk with her so we could actually leave the house. I ordered string and beads for friendship bracelets, so I am one step closer to becoming a craft god.
This blog is probably the most productive thing I’ve done all day, and I’ve barely even written anything. I need to start setting goals for each day so I have more of an idea of what to do with my day. I think tomorrow’s goals will be to clean my room and finish at least three chapters of the book I’m reading for English. Tune in tomorrow to see if I actually do it.
Monday, March 16, 2020
When the break was first announced, I was very upset, and as time goes on, I am somehow getting even more upset.
I’m a home body, and on a usual weekend I like to relax by myself and recharge. But also on normal weekends, I have the choice to go out if I wanted to. Now I don’t even have that option. My mom isn’t letting me leave the house for the next week, but everything is closed, even if I wanted to. I can’t even go to work, because the restaurant I hostess at is closed due to the new state regulations.
The worst part of this all is that my mom is a teacher. She will make sure I actually do some homework and have a schedule every day. In the end it will keep me sane, but right now I don’t appreciate it very much.
I have already painted my nails, watched “Frozen 2,” and made two quesadillas. I’m running out of things to do. I might write a book. Maybe I’ll start learning how to sew or become a craft god. The possibilities seem endless–after all, I do have a whole month of sitting at home ahead of me.
