Students of Mountain View High School are coping with quarantine due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The school has been shut down since March 13th and everyone has been doing different things to keep busy. Here is what a few have to say. One Student, Jenna Trahan, says that staying home is going “very badly my family stresses me out and I want to leave so I take my dog out on night drives every night.” So as we see she isn’t really staying home and being quarantined. But she doesn’t have interactions with other people so I guess she is playing by the rules. This seems like a common coping method for teenagers who are used to going out every day and doing things. Another student, Julia Bernardi, is producing short 15-60 second videos on the app Tik Tok. The app started gaining popularity in December of 2018 after being changed from musical.ly. These videos are almost addicting to teens as they seem to get lost in an endless spiral of watching for, sometimes, hours at a time. “I’ve just been so bored that this is what i’ve had to resort to” many teens make content on the app and have been using this to kill time during quarantine. Student, Gerardo Estrada, has been using maybe the most common time killer during this time. He’s been playing video games and playing games with his family. “I mean there isn’t really much else to do” he says. Video games are a way to still be with your friends without being in the same room as them. Playing online and calling is a way of still being with them. Even huge stars like NBA All-Star Donovan Mitchell are playing Call of Duty to keep themselves entertained. These times can be boring but students are finding ways to not be bored during quarantine. And if you can’t find any ways to stay entertained then you can try the things these students have.
