Working from Home

Corona Virus is impacting everyone’s lives differently. My heart goes out to anyone who has the virus or knows somebody with it. No matter who you are, your life is directly being impacted by this virus. I wish the families of those who are infected the best of luck and I am praying for speedy recoveries. I hope everyone who has been temporarily laid off can use this time to not stress out. Personally, my mother has been temporarily laid off from her work and she is using this time to do around the house projects she has been wanting to get done and she is using her time off wisely and trying to keep busy.

For me and a lot of other students, a major change we have been dealing with is having to do online schooling for possibly the remaining of the semester. For many students it seems more like an extended spring break as most of us go back to learning on March 23rd. I wanted to say that yes this will be challenging for everyone because everyone learns differently, but if this is what we have to do to deal with and fight Corona Virus than it’s the least we can do so we do not catch it and spread it to those who are more vulnerable to it than we are.

            Yes, it’s different and I feel for the seniors in high school and college whose certain big events may end up getting cancelled, but I wanted to say that everything will end up being okay. Online learning can be difficult depending on the subject but at the end of the day we must do this for our own safety and for the safety of those around us. It is very weird doing so much classwork at home but after a while you get used to it and it’s nice being able to spend more time with your family while you are still learning and working on schoolwork.

So, don’t think of this as some type of jail time where you’re stuck at home and can’t leave the house. Think of this as a time to relax, spend it with your family and be sure to stay up to date on your academics. This time can be stressful as professors and teachers are trying to update their material and as a student you may not exactly know how the rest of your semester is going to go. Just relax and take a deep breath, everything is going to work out. Everyone should continue working hard and we will all get through this.
