But I was a senior

As the days go by so many emotions come to mind. I don’t even know how to feel, think or do anymore. Most of the students feel like being at home is fun and not having to go to school anymore but no me, a senior that was looking forward to being in school the last few months that we had with our friends and teachers. Sadness and disappointment are not what I would call this feeling that I have. It’s so unexplainable. Being at home has given me so much to think about and planning for the future is the only good thing that has come with this long time off. I have already planned many things that I hope I get to actually accomplish. Having this “free time” comes with cleaning. Like if you live in a Mexican household it means cleaning every day like Mexican parents need to take a chill pill.

Fun Friday

Moya was one of many students who thought the event was fun and would like something similar to happen in the future.

Learning At Home / Thoughts On Quarantine

Our lives have not changed as drastically as most people make it seem; this is true for me, at least. Most of my assignments from school needed to be submitted or worked on online, so it honestly isn’t much of a change. The biggest change is the absence of a school environment, which I believe is making me more comfortable while working. Not having to stress about waking up at an ungodly hour, getting dressed in four minutes because I’m already late, having to sit through a bumpy half hour bus ride, arriving hoping I’ll be allocated a few minutes to settle in, only to be bombarded with information, assignments and deadlines.
