Hello there! It’s April at last. Rainy most days, sunny a few, where I live. Unfortunately, because of social distancing and sheltering in place, I can’t enjoy as much. But read on to hear me rant about how the coronavirus is affecting me and all the stuff I’ve looked forwards to and enjoy doing that are officially canceled.
I should be done with spring break, where I’d gone to visit my grandmother in Seattle, I should be transitioning into the third trimester of school, making my way through what my math teacher says is the hardest part of algebra, and preparing for the state OBOB competition (Oregon Battle of the Books), where the best teams in Oregon, who had already sped through regionals would compete against each other, answering questions about 16 books that I should have been rereading. Right now, school is canceled, OBOB is canceled, Spring break was spent socially distanced and now I’m in my bed, writing this right now, after a long day of staying inside. It’s spring. April, really. Staying 6 feet apart is not what I’ve expected the rest of my 7th grade year to be like. But that’s what it looks like it’s going to be. So, here we are now. And because pretty much everything in my life has changed right now, I thought I would write an update of what my life is like right now and how the coronavirus is affecting me. And that’s exactly what you just read. Everything in my life is either canceled, or online, or, postponed.
