Entry #58

It has now been 329 days since lockdown was in effect, it’s been almost a year since I saw anyone from school
I couldn’t really sleep last night, I was recollecting moments from my years at Cal Young, god, it’s so weird that it’s been almost a year since I last saw anyone from school. Hopefully I can say goodbye to people in person before my graduation from here. I will always stay hopeful that this whole pandemic thing rolls over, no matter how bad things seem. Other than that it was a standard day, go to school, do homework, and do whatever. 

Entry #56


Ever since the pandemic started, lots of things have changed. Business shut down, schools closed, 6ft social distancing, wearing masks in public is the law. Everything you are about to witness in this entry is what happened to me January 10 – 17th during the COVID 19 Pandmeic.

Monday started off as a regular day for me. Waking up at 9am and immediately going to the kitchen to grab my morning coffee and get my work that has been assigned to me all finished. If i get done early i will either go on a nice run/walk around my neighborhood or will watch some TV or play video games until lunch. At 11:45, I start making lunch. I’m not their best cook, so I usually just make myself a sandwich or Mac and cheese. Once I’m done with lunch I grab my IPad that my school gave me and hopped online to zoom and attended online classes. From 12:20 to 4:00, I go to zoom and sit and listen to 4 classes. After school I usually just go to the Cal Young Field to hang out with my friends or we play soccer together. I can only stay for so long because it gets dark very quickly. In the evening when I get home I usually come home to my parents making dinner and putting it on the table nice and warm. After dinner, I usually go hop on video games with my friends. We do that basically all night and then around 11:30 to midnight I usually go to bed. That’s what happened Monday. Tuesday is a repeat of Monday so I don’t need to go into detail. Wednesday is the exact same as Monday and Tuesday but I don’t have zoom that day so it gives me a break, also instead of going to the field after school I go to a life group and drink coke and play air hockey with my friends and learn about Christianity. Thursday is a regular day like Monday and Tuesday. Friday is also the same but I’m more excited because the weekend approaches. Saturday and Sunday are usually my free days where I can invite people over to spend the night or I can hang out with my friends outside at the field. Sunday is usually a recovery day for the next week ahead of me, where I prepare my iPad and notebooks for zoom and morning work.

This week was pretty normal for me like any other, but trust me. Some of my weeks are crazy, and filled with adventure. I hope this pandemic gets over soon, I love my house but I’m almost going insane inside.

Thursday January 28th, 2021

It has been 321 days since quarantine was in effect, 321 days since I last saw the hallways of Cal Young. 

  Nothing remarkable happened today, nothing interesting was on the news, the weather was nice today, didn’t get to go outside though. I’m gonna try to get some assignments turned in, I haven’t had the motivation to do so lately, not being able to see friends and not having social interactions can impact school very hard. I am surviving though, I am always going to be optimistic that things will get better and go back to normal. Well, that’s about all of the stuff I did today, didn’t get to do much, but it is what it is.

Monday through Friday, I had school and rehearsal for theatre every night. Saturday I saw my brother and sister at my dads. Sunday I went sledding at the sno park with my mom. I had never been sledding before and it was fun.

I don’t know any famous people with covid and I don’t know anyone in person with covid. But my mom does. My mom is a nurse and is always doing covid tests on her patients and has seen a lot of it.

I wish we weren’t doing online school. I wish we had regular school and I wish we could see friends more. I miss live theatre shows. 

I hope it snows this week. 

Entry #27


Today was the first day of school. At first I didn’t think it was going to go out well, but it ended up working. We tested out zoom and worked well; some classes had good connection, some didn’t. I got to see my friends and class mates and teachers. Today was just a test run, so the classes were mostly empty till 3rd period came around. My last class was with Schiff and that class had a lot of students. During the five min breaks I played uno with my dad or laid down on the couch. I like online school, but it’s a bit to get used to.

Today was great, once again I was woken up by my sister and her horn. After that we did a family exercise which was fun. Then after that my mom made us breakfast even though it was noon already. My mom made us French toast which was delicious. Then everyone separated and did their own thing. After that my dad ordered chipotle which was good. Me and my siblings and my dad went and played a tournament of pick a number which is a pool game, my oldest brother won. Which then after that we played a family game of psychiatrist. I’m pretty sure that’s what the game is called but I’m not too sure. All together today was a pretty great day.
