We Made It!

We Made It!

Lizbeth Agyemang, Staff Writer

It has been a very stressful, yet motivational school year. The way the school year started was unconventional, to say the least. Starting off with half-day schedules was very frustrating in the beginning because it felt like we weren’t learning and the time was just slipping away. To all of a sudden go back to full-day schedules took a bit of adjusting. It was and still is a challenge attending school from home. This is because of family inside the house, younger siblings that constantly need something, helping others sign into their classes, Wi-Fi and computer issues that can’t be controlled, and so many more exhausting and frustrating events.

In the beginning, it didn’t feel like anything was being truly learned, and I was just trying to turn in assignments before the due date that was given. But after a couple more weeks of school, I got the hang of it and actually started learning and understanding the material that was being taught.

This year more than anything tested our resiliency, patience, motivation, and most of all, our mental health. Being inside the majority of the day and sitting in front of a screen for 5 days a week can be a real struggle. But, it also taught us that we can overcome any curveball that life throws at us because we were able to get to the end of the school year.

Life is slowly going back to normal with senior and junior prom just around the corner, the senior trip, and so many more fun activities that were taken away from us last year by the pandemic. With just a little bit more hard work and dedication, we can make it to the end of the year and our seniors can graduate with flying colors. They can also tell their kids that they went to school during a pandemic whenever their future kids complain about going to school!
