I Interviewed My Best Friend About Her COVID-19 Experience, And It Made Me More Appreciative

We have all been through so much with COVID and no one goes unappreciated.

I Interviewed My Best Friend About Her COVID-19 Experience, And It Made Me More Appreciative

I spoke to my best friend, a class of 2020 senior at Neshaminy High School, and I truly learned how people aside from myself felt about the pandemic that ended the senior year so quickly.

1. What's it been like spending your last semester under quarantine amidst the coronavirus pandemic?

It was very boring and annoying. I couldn't learn the way I normally did and that was very hard to get through in my final year of high school.

2. Of all the things you missed out on because of quarantine, what has been the hardest to accept?

Regular graduation or saying goodbye to my teachers was the hardest part of everything I have been through this year so far.

3. What has been a silver lining?

Being able to still get coffee and see one of my only friends home from college.

4. What have you done to make up for some of the graduation traditions you aren't able to do?

We had graduation, but it was a small one and it everyone went at different times. We also got to take pictures, but away from everyone else.

5. What are your next steps, and have they been impacted by coronavirus?

I am still going to college. The only thing that changes because of this is that my classes are done from home and not in person.

6. What is the worst thing someone can say to a Class of 2020 graduate?

The worst thing someone could say is that "you shouldn't have graduated because you never even finished the year" or "you guys don't deserve your diplomas."

7. What is one piece of advice you would love to give to the class of 2021?

Online school isn't as bad as you think, it just takes time to get used to.

8. What about the last few months do you think you'll remember most?

The one thing that will stay in my memory from the last few months I had in high school was my Gym Night. It was so much fun and it will always go down as one of my favorites nights in high school.

9. Do you think you personally have changed because of this pandemic?

Yes, I have become lazier with everything I do, but I need to change that because being lazy is not something I am used to being.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
