It’s been a week of my freshman year. You’d think that’d be exciting for all of the fun high school events along with this new chapter of my life but lately things have just been rather melancholy.
With quarantine I have to go to all of my classes virtually and can’t have any high school fun like going to school dances or pep rallies or joining a sport. I can’t believe how much I miss going to school… I never really thought this was a point in life someone could reach. Sometimes I am so tempted to click that red leave meeting button, but I know it is important to keep a high GPA so that isn’t an option. Instead I have to bear through it.
I mean at least I won’t have to do a frog dissection in real life. It would probably be more like double tap to dissect the frog’s stomach or something. I know I just said I would bear through it, but If prom is a virtual event I will honestly not even attend it. What if we have no more in person school! What if for the rest of forever all school will be virtual or in the future kids go to school as a hologram!? What if in the future kids start to think that your mouth and nose are your private parts? What about joining a sport in high school or making new friends? What about… I need to calm down. The year just started it can’t be that bad. Maybe this school year might even be easier than others since everything will be online. All I have to do is hope the wi-fi doesn’t randomly shut down and kick me out of class.

It’s the middle of the school year and it’s hard keeping up with my classes. I do the work and try really hard, but there always is something technical. One time my assignment didn’t get turned on because the school website was lagging. Another time I couldn’t get access to my documents at all. Ughhhh it so frustrating! Usually all of this frustration would be balanced out with having friends you can talk to and chill with or maybe even getting to play in after school sport but I can’t do any of that.
I understand of course that it’s better to give up high school events than become sick with an awful virus. So many people have been affected by this virus and school changing the way it works isn’t the worst thing in the world. I just need to remember to stay positive. At least I’m healthy and safe, that’s more than other people could say. Maybe a cure will come out before I graduate high school or go to prom. The future still has hope. I mean if we can have enough technology to get a robot to mars we can find a vaccine! I just have to remain hopeful until that happens…

Hope has come! The vaccine was created and is going to be distributed soon! Woo hoo! At this rate I might just have prom and go to pep rallies and even join a sport! Woo hoo! Thank goodness for modern medicine and scientists for creating a vaccine. Now all we have to do is take the vaccine and we’ll be safe, but i hope it doesn’t have any weird science effects like i’ve seen on social media. This one lady on Instagram got a rash and weird bumps on her arm after taking it… I hope she’s okay.
And I have more good news! The school year is almost over! In about 4 months I’ll be sleeping in and eating chips without a care in the world. All I have to do until then is study, study, study for the finals. And also I have to try to keep my GPA at a really high level, so just in case I do bad on the finals my grades won’t drop too much. Although my mom told me that studying too much can give you a headache which leads to really bad medical issues, so every once in a while i’ll remember to take a nice long break!
