I don’t know about you, but I’ve been social distancing/in quarantine for thirty-one days now and it’s been the most frustrating thirty-one days I’ve had in my life. Frustrating because I’ve had almost nothing to do. Did you catch how I said I almost had nothing to do? Well I still do a lot …

The abrupt ending to the school year has shocked many students. For some this meant no sports or activities this spring which is especially upsetting for seniors. It can be difficult to find things to keep you busy while you are at home. I am fortunate because I live in the country. I rodeo,…

This way of living over the past couple of weeks has definitely been a new experience. I never thought that this was how I’d be spending the last couple of months of my senior year, but we are trying to make the best out of it.

Never in a million years would I have though I would be quarantined to my house, finishing my senior year of high school online. Sometimes the unimaginable is possible, and here we are today.

Get up and get active. The benefits of exercise have been touted forever. It is undeniable that people simply feel better when they perform physical activity throughout their days. The importance of keeping up with fitness is especially critical during this time of COVID-19. Now more than ev…

During this time of global pandemic, keeping yourself busy everyday as a high school senior can be a great challenge. If the coronavirus hadn’t attacked our country two months ago, we would be living our normal lives and attending school. We could have enjoyed prom and looked forward to walk…

While it is sad that senior year and spring activities are being taken away from us, the only thing we can do is make the most of what we have. Even though I wish I was able to run the 400 meter dash just a few more times, I have been enjoying my time with my family. I am grateful to have th…

Welcome back to another episode of “Are You Getting Bored During Quarantine?” I am your host Kailey Marks and I will be walking you through some of the new things I’ve learned or just some skills I have practiced during quarantine.

Although the coronavirus has altered our normal lifestyles, it has opened up a lot of time to learn new things. Initially, filling up the days was pretty challenging, but now I’ve discovered some new ways to help the time pass. One activity that I’ve found to really enjoy is going for long w…

After my school closed due to COVID-19, I was left with quite a bit of free time on my hands. Fortunately, I have found a few new and old hobbies to fill up that time, but I still find myself with nothing to do every now and then.

Teenagers love to complain about school. We whine about the necessity of waking up earlier than we would prefer and claim we have no free time, with excess amounts of homework being piled on by teachers. We’d show up to class exhausted and attempt to sneak food and drinks, testing the limits…

During my time here on planet Earth, I would have never thought that I wouldn’t be able to go to school or not be able to leave my house. Those are things we see in movies, not things that we can even fathom. Well, it happened. I won’t be finishing my senior year of high school, senior prom,…

Walking into school every morning, greeting your friends in the morning, talking to your advisor in the morning, learning from your favorite teacher, eating lunch in the commons, sleeping in homeroom, etc. These things all are things that I did every day when I went to school. I never though…

The economy is slowly getting better in my opinion. I know when COVID-19 hit, a lot of businesses’ stocks were dropping. However, I do believe it is going to recover. My personal finance class did a stock market project, and the online store stocks were doing better than the stores who aren’…

I think every American would say that the Covid-19 ruined their plans and they aren’t okay with it. As one of those people Covid-19 ended my speech season earlier than expected and I probably won’t get to go to junior prom … I mean I didn’t want to go anyway. When Covid-19 got bad my family …

A lot has happened over the past few weeks, that I never thought would happen. 2020 was supposed to be the best year yet.

Even for those who live under a rock, I think it’s safe to say that every person in America, and around the globe has been affected by COVID-19. Students are out of school, businesses have been forced to close their doors, and employees have lost their jobs. Since school has been temporarily…

It is currently day nine, of unknown, of being quarantined in my home with my family. It has been fun, frustrating, and boring. While the school is assigning us online classes, I still find myself with a lot of free time. I have been running, cleaning, cooking and reading. The only way to de…

Throughout the time I’ve been at home, I’ve kept myself busy with various activities. These include things that I maybe hadn’t had time to spend very much time on in the past. I enjoy passing the time with things like playing my guitar, baking, going on walks, and playing games with my sibli…
