My daily routine has not really changed from last week. I get up, take vitamins, and take a shower. If there’s work to do I do it, take necessary breaks, and sleep. I do have a problem with my routine a bit. I do some work late and when I try to do 5 different things at once it becomes very stressful. Then I try to take breaks but it doesn’t help.

This pandemic is affecting me in many different ways. From my mental state to my physical state. I broke my controller to my video game. I feel like it was a good thing because I have more time to focus on my work. I actually did an essay in literally no time. I wish I had this mindset in school.

I think the pandemic is affecting more people than the news reporters let on. Most people are struggling to purchase basic necessities that they need. Water is sold out, masks are sold out,  disinfectant spray is sold out, and also toilet paper is sold out. It’s crazy how people are stockpiling while others are completely out of these items. The government should really try to help citizens with items. Like the stimulus check I keep hearing about, they might as well give it to the people who really need it.

My opinion of distance learning has changed from last week. I actually enjoy the work I get to do. In a way it distracts from my daily life and I focus all my brain power into work. At times it can be overbearing but it’s not strenuous work. It is mostly simply work and somewhat basic. I understand why though: y’all want us to continue to use our brain, to not lose the knowledge we obtained this school year. Well on behalf of all my work, I appreciate that. I can finish it.
