Hi Everyone! I know this quarantine has been hard on everyone, but I’m just here to remind you of the positives and be your virtual friend.
- Self healing time
- More time to read
- Good time to learn a new skill (I have been taking up cooking, but drawing is something I’ve been looking into)
- Good time to catch up on much needed sleep
- Time to write a letter to my friends
What I have been doing:
- Eating (I dropped my diet -oops)
- Spending time with my family
- Catching up on school work
- Getting baby pigs (they are very cute)
- Cuddling with my cat
- Reading more books
- Working out more (in the comfort of my room)
- Appreciating nature
- Cleaning EVERYTHING
- Watching house remodeling – very therapeutic I highly recommend
- Self evaluations to see where I can improve
- Working on stuff for the Civil Air Patrol
And sooo much more.
I hope you are all happy and finding the bright side to all of this, if you ever want a good book to read, I highly recommend Harry Potter, and To Kill a Mockingbird. Have a great day!
With love and care,
Katherine Longuil 🙂 (9th grade)
