Kiddos, sorry for the delay!! I am ok... Thank you to those trying to reach me. I have had extreme technical issues with the internet service and phone.(Had to get another new phone too... with a temporary new #.) My old number is temporarily out of service. Trying to get my old number put on the new phone. The pandemic has caused delays and extensive time trying to get this issue resolved. It's still not completely. Anyway, for the time being you will have to submit your work solely through email. email@example.com I apologize as this has been frustrating, I know, for all of us. As of today, I can get into my email and will try to address those as I can. My connectivity is intermittent.
SO here we go:
April 16th Thursday
During this pandemic life has changed drastically for everyone. We are limited in what we can do, whom we can have contact with, and where we can go. This restrictive lifestyle has affected our daily lives. Think for a moment about how this has affected yours. (how have your interactions with your family changed, need for personal space changed, activities, communication with your friends and family, your feeling about freedom?)
Journal Prompt: Write a diary entry for your future self or someone else knowing it will be read 5, 10 or 20 years from now and explain how the pandemic changed life as you once knew it.
(If stuck ideas: family dynamic, activities, school, friends, practicing your faith, schedule, grocery shopping, hobbies, games, social distancing, etc. ....)
