Zoom doesn’t have that same personal touch, and students seemed disoriented and emotionally flat.
I don’t leave the house anymore, I stay at home all day and I wear more masks when I do go out.
This has been surreal and all too real at the same time.
I’ve noticed that losing the rhythm of going to class every day has lowered my motivation to do work.
I am staying in; working out, getting all my school work done, studying the playbook, watching documentaries, and playing video games
I knew I would miss the physical interaction in my English class.
Sometimes I am anxious, worried, or stressed. Other times, I am happy and ready to tackle the day.
A collective understanding of flattening the curve is the core as to why I find staying at home essential. I understand that this is only a short period of life, and that I have at least a year to graduate and, therefore, I have wiggle room to find quality jobs.
The worse feeling has to be the lack of communication between fellow students on topics I may not fully grasp or vice versa. This also involves meeting face to face with the professor on a confusing subject.
I think this teaches us a great lesson. Since we cannot be together, it will let us cherish each other so much more when we can come back.
