“Try to Be Positive and Look on the Bright Side of Things!”

I can’t believe it is the third week of virtual learning! Two weeks of virtual learning have already been completed. Both students and teachers have been making a great effort. Teachers have been using virtual learning in a variety of ways, such as live classes through Zoom or the use of Google Classroom for assignments. Even though we are not in school, teachers have been trying their best to really create a school environment for the students. Teachers have been taking advantage of this virtual learning, even though it was hard at first. While teachers have been working hard for the students, students have been working to the best of their abilities as well. Students have been cooperating with the teachers and taking their online learning in a serious manner. Overall, virtual learning has been continuing to be successful for both students and teachers! 

For me, virtual learning was difficult at first. It was really hard to get used to the new environment. I really missed being at school and seeing my friends every day. I think that feeling is similar for most people. However, I took advantage of this virtual learning. I started being positive and looking on the bright side of things. While I was completing assignments for all of my classes, I still had fun moments. I spent time with my family. I played games with my sister and my brothers. I also called my friends through either Skype, Zoom, or Facetime and chatted with them. I really made the most of my time at home! Even though being at home most of the time can be frustrating, it can still be fun and exciting! Just be positive!

Even though virtual learning can be difficult at times, I encourage everyone to think positively! Don’t let this change make your life miserable. Be positive and live your life to the fullest! There are many fun activities you can do at home. You can take time to focus on your family. There’s nothing better than spending time with your family. You can also spend time with your friends too. You can call your friends using Zoom, Skype, or Facetime. You can also take this time to develop your faith and become closer to God. You can watch live Masses online. Once you start thinking and living life positively, your life will change. Nothing can stop you from being positive everyday. Only you can do it! I hope you all really try to be positive and look on the bright side of things!
