Hey everybody, it’s me again! I hope you all enjoyed these amazing blog posts from our talented guest bloggers as much as I did- it was so interesting to hear everyone’s different insights and stories, thank you guys so much for your thoughtful work!
This time is hard for everyone, but luckily we have so many ways to stay connected. We have concerts, libraries, and communication at our fingertips, and although it’s not the same, all we can do is make the most of this situation and do what we can to get life back to normal. That being said, I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay inside and to continue to practice social distancing. Our actions now will have a lasting effect on the future, so it’s so important for us to all do our part.
Like many of you, I’m used to singing every day in chorus class. Even though we haven’t been in school, music has still been present in my life, which I’m sure is the same for many of you. I’ve been listening to old favorites, trying some new genres of music, and having lots of jam sessions by myself, and with my family. Twenty minutes ago, my sister and I were pretending to be opera singers. Now, she’s listening to the Grease soundtrack while I’m playing Lana Del Rey (my go-to) through my earbuds.
Personally, I’ve been having a very hard time sticking to a routine. It’s been kind of tricky trying to get school work done at home, but in between the procrastination, I’ve found time for some other activities. I’ve baked bread, made a candle, and have been working on reading some books that I couldn’t find time to read during school. If you’re finding yourself facing boredom, I suggest giving Ms. Aste an email- she has lists upon lists of things to do.
I miss you all very much, and I hope everyone is doing well! Please feel free to reach out if you’re bored, or you want to talk. I’m always down to play iMessage games. Also, don’t forget to check in with your teachers! They miss you guys.
Well, I guess that’s it for now. If you want, let me know how you’ve been keeping music in your life in the comments, or leave some song suggestions- I’m always looking for new music.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay inside!
