QUARANTINE by SOPHIE

When COVID-19 hit I felt my life slowly fade away. It was like I was falling through a deep hole and was never hitting the bottom. When I never got the experience of graduating elementary school and going onto sixth grade, it felt as if I was passed over,like an important part of my life was skipped. Now, I feel as if everyday is the same and I’m in this constant loop. 

  After I had the experience of finishing fifth grade online I wanted to start fresh. I was so excited to have a fresh slate, make new friends, … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by SOPHIE”

QUARANTINE by TAKUMI

Did you know that quarantine in Japan is really different from America? 

First, the difference between the Japanese School and the American School under quarantine is that the school in Japan was great and Online School in America is tough. In Japan, we have to go to school on Monday-Friday, 7:30-2:15, 3:45, and 2:45. My first day of school in Japan was great. First, we have to wear Masks due to COVID-19 but Japan is not in the tough quarantine like America yet so we can still go to school and learn. Second, as always, we do some learning, on … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by TAKUMI”

QUARANTINE by HAILEY R.

This entire pandemic has certainly been an.. experience. Of course it’s mostly bad because people are dying and our entire lives have been uprooted but there have been some good things! 

            Online learning. I don’t know if I would count this as a good or bad experience because there have been some good things but I still mostly hate it. I feel I don’t learn as well with online learning and find myself confused in some subjects I used to be pretty good in. This entire year has basically been review for me since I already  knew most of everything … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by HAILEY R.”

QUARANTINE by JORGE

I was at school one day when we received sad news about how we couldn’t go on our last field trip because of a new virus that was spreading. Lots of my classmates including me were sad because we were promised the trip ever since the start of the year and we had paid for it. Disappointed, I called my mom and told her the news. She heard my crying and said it would be alright. At the end of the school day I went home. Little did I know that was going to be the last day I was … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by JORGE”

QUARANTINE by FABIA

In the zoom meetings is what I experienced for the whole quarantine, I learned that I can do so much in all of the meetings. I can have a virtual background so that means I can have a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge in the back. I can go to breakout rooms with my friends and go out then, there will be a join button for the breakout rooms so I can join again if I want to. Once I was the host and I could control the meeting so I can end the meeting, mute others, put people … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by FABIA”

QUARANTINE by NIKOS

COVID caused a chain of reactions that caused so many people to be stressed. First it seemed like a break from school to me and my friends thought it was gonna be a 2 week weekend without any work and were excited. Then the virus really started to spread and the US went into pandemic mode. People were scared of the virus and everyone had to stay inside and wear masks social media was blowing up with everyone panicking and also speculating on when all the craziness

QUARANTINE by DYLAN

I have learned so much during quarantine. It’s so much more difficult than we thought. We have had to learn a lot more on technology like online school, turning in assignments, and sharing articles. We have also had to communicate differently. We have had to be inside with only our families and I can’t hang out with my friends. Something I remember is that when I got out of school I thought it was only a  two week break. That seemed fine but now it has been a whole year!!! The thing I hated is online school, because at times … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by DYLAN”

QUARANTINE by ARMAN

Studies show that the activity people do is to play video games or walking. My favorite was to cook with my mom. I realised playing video games is fun but it’s not everything. You have to spend time with your family. My family and I would cook lots of food and eat them while watching a movie. We mostly made pastries like cake and cupcakes. Sometimes if there was something I needed to learn about cooking and baking my mom would show me and I would learn from that. After cooking me and my mom would sit and enjoy our … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by ARMAN”

QUARANTINE by MATTHEW

I never ever ever wanna do online school again! Online school was a pain in the butt if you haven’t experienced it you should be grateful. Online school was more boring than regular school. Now that’s a statement but i am happy  I went through it. The online school taught me more about technology that I used to know, and my attention span was increased. Everything else about it though is bad…..really bad.

QUARANTINE by ALLISON M.

Having to start a new life during quarantine was a bit difficult for me; the reason why is because I had to manage a new schedule, and I had to deal with many difficult problems with my device. During zoom, I would hate how my family would come and make a lot of noise while I was still in class. But what I hated most was how I could never stay focus because of all the distractions around me. Sometimes I wish I could have focused more so I could have gotten a better grade.

But as time passed by, … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by ALLISON M.”

QUARANTINE by HAREGEWOIN

So basically this entire quarantine I’ve been playing video games, chatting with friends, zooming with family members, watching shows, school, and ive the worst time of my life. That’s the quicker way. The longer way is..we got 2 weeks off to slow the pandemic and of course we got a loadddd of stuff we had to take home math books, ela books, papers, etc. So it wasn’t as great as i thought it would be.But i still thought 2 weeks off of school was great. Thinking about that a year from then I’m disappointed. Before quarantine I was well soft … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by HAREGEWOIN”

QUARANTINE by AERON

What I did for quarantine at first was play video games and bring my school  iPads home, it was confusing because I don’t even know what the school looks like in the inside because we weren’t even there for long, our iPads on the first day was very glitchy and it was already hard to connect to out internet which I didn’t like because we had to go back and forth to our old school and our current school twice to connect to the internet and VPN. Though I liked that our school dismissed earlier than usual if we weren’t … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by AERON”

QUARANTINE by IZZY

You know how we are in quarantine or were in quarantine? Well I’m going to talk about family time. We all have different options. I personally like it but I know that not everyone can agree. So let me tell you why I like being with my family. 

I know that most people like video games. Right? So why don’t you try and play some with your family. I like playing Mario kart with my brother and mom. Probably because I always beat them. You should try playing with your family. It is a fun way to spend time with … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by IZZY”

QUARANTINE by EDEN

During this pandemic, I have learned that life can’t be entirely planned. 

The world is a twisting and turning roller coaster. Sometimes it can be a fun roller coaster, and sometimes it is not. The coronavirus is a perfect example, and it has not been a fun ride. I am a girl who loves planning (not going on roller coasters). I make lists with eraser marks stained to the pages, proving that I don’t like making mistakes for I am a perfectionist. So, when this virus rolled in, I didn’t feel prepared. Instead, I felt scared and felt ambushed – … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by EDEN”

QUARANTINE by THEO

Ever run into someone at a party or in school who doesn’t seem to talk with people and keep to themselves. Well that’s an introvert! Most of them have some kind of social anxiety which makes them not comfortable in new situations such as parties or events with random people. Usually they tag along with someone so they don’t have to talk to anyone, if they even have friends.Introverts are a very interesting type of person because they seem to only make friends with the person who is an extrovert which is someone who is the opposite of an introvert. … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by THEO”

QUARANTINE by TESSIE

I suppose something I am glad to see go, but am also glad to have experienced is quarantine itself. One reason I am pretty glad to have experienced quarantine is that I am finally able to be closer to my bathroom for once, I won’t have to raise my hand and beg my teacher to call on me so then I can sprint to the bathroom as I pray for me to not be too late. I was glad to experience it because it is actually quite interesting to be part of the only kids who have had to do … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by TESSIE”

QUARANTINE by FELIX

Quarantine sucks. We all know that. When I first started quarantine everyone said that we would be staying at home for a few weeks but it’s been a year now. It was exciting at first because we didn’t really go to school but then LAUSD got the idea to do online learning. For some reason quarantine went faster than being at actual school. I liked it at first; being able to wake up later than normal, being able to be with my family, and being able to work with friends anywhere. It was nice. But it got annoying after a … Read the rest “QUARANTINE by FELIX”
