Dear Editor:

2020 is a crazy year. We all thought that this would be the great new start of a great new decade. How wrong we were. The new coronavirus COVID-19 has changed almost every facet of people’s lives, from work or school to simply getting groceries. Our own school experience has been affected like this as well, especially recently. First we had the cohort system, which had us alternate between going in person and learning online. We had a brief day where we all went in person, but the football team ended up having several positive cases, so now we are all fully online for school. Some people like it because they can do the work and then do whatever they want. Personally, I don’t like it. I’ve never been the best at doing my homework, and now every single piece of work assigned is homework. I find myself severely unmotivated to do school schoolwork, because I have all the comforts of home. So, while those of us with “go-getter” attitudes are thriving in this situation, those of us who don’t find ourselves left behind.
