    • Dear Sam:
      I am able to relate to your post, “Life in the Time of Corona,” because at first, I thought the same too, that everything was just going to be temporary. Once everything changed I was able to get so much closer to my family too.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “When school and sports were going on, I really never had a lot of time to grow closer to the people living under the same roof as me.” I think this describes my life too since before the pandemic it seemed that we were all so busy. During this time I have got to do so much more stuff with my family than I have in a long time. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I have been able to relate a lot to your thoughts.

    • Dear Sam,
      I am able to relate to your post, “Life in the Time of Corona”, I also thought that it was nice to not be in school and it was less stressful. I thought we would eventually go back to school after easter break but it didn’t happen. I also agree that there was no motivation to do schoolwork which was hard for me to even start an assignment. One sentence that stood out for me is ” I no longer can see my friends, can’t participate in sports, and can’t get the traditional end of senior year experience.” I think this is true because hanging out with my friends was the only thing I was looking forward to in school. Also Im worried that I won’t get to experience all the senior activities that I have been looking forward to since I was a freshman. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I can relate on the many things that you have said.
