Q: How do you keep yourself busy at home?
A: I keep myself busy by doing arts and crafts. I have been writing positive letters to my friends, and I’m constantly making yarn anklets.

Q: What is something fun you’ve done this week?
A: This week has been super boring so at this point going to Walmart is fun. I went to Walmart yesterday and it was the highlight of my week — so far.

Q: What is one thing you have wanted to do this week (but couldn’t)?
A: This week I really wanted to go to church! I’m super upset that I couldn’t go and that I still can’t!

Q: How do you like the online assignments? Why?
A: Personally I love the online assignments. I think they are easy and they aren’t that long.

Q: What is one thing you miss from school? Why?
A: I really miss all of my teachers from school. The teachers I have this year are amazing, and I love all of them so much! I miss them because they are always encouraging me to do my best and they never fail to put a smile on my face.

Q: How do you feel about no more toilet paper in the stores?
A: Part of my thinks that is kinda funny how people are basically searching for toilet paper at this point. The other part of me thinks it’s sad because everyone needs toilet paper and it’s super hard to find it now. I think that the whole toilet paper situation is crazy over all.

Q: What’s the most interesting thing you’ve seen or heard throughout this experience?
A: The most interesting thing I’ve seen during this experience is how people are acting because of the virus. Everywhere I go at least one person has a mask on or someone is smothering themselves with Germ-X.
