Coronavirus Journal Entry #3

Senior Natalie Link tries painting, reading

My quarantine experience definitely was rough in the beginning, but now that I have a schedule it makes it a little more bearable. 

I have an hour by hour schedule to keep myself occupied and productive. I do my homework and chores, but I also have tried to branch out in my hobbies or do things that I have always wanted to do. 

Recently, I have decided to paint an old skateboard and read God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater. I have taken up coloring and drawing to keep stress levels low. 

This quarantine has been a challenge with not being able to see people I care about or being able to go out and do things that make me happy. 

Not having soccer has significantly affected me. Soccer has always been an outlet for me; it gave me structure, discipline and most importantly fun and my teammates.

 One of the hardest parts of this is the, what looks like, abrupt ending to my final year of high school. While like many other seniors I have had a small case of senioritis, I never imagined my senior year would end like this. I am now unable to say the final goodbye to everyone in my class and am left with little closure. 

My last hope is maybe we will still have graduation but as each day goes by the chance looks slimmer and slimmer. Even though this quarantine has limited my senior year, it is very important that people stay inside and take precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

It should be taken seriously because even though it may not be of harm to everyone, you never know who you may come in contact with if you aren’t cautious.
