If you didn’t have enough time to yourself before, you do now. With all this time, now people are just worried about not getting sick and about what to do. With all these things that are going on, here are what some students do.
Katie Bell said, “I paint, stretch, listen to audiobooks, and go on drives:)” When asked what she doesn’t like about quarantine, she said, “Not being able to see all my friends at MVHS.” When asked what she liked about it she said, “I can have a lot of time to myself haha!” It’s very hard not being able to see your friends for the rest of the year. The time when Mountain View really is practicing resilience. Good thing we have time to work on our talents, but sad we cannot be united all in one building at a time. Steven Budd said, “Family time, Discord messaging, and Marco Polo with friends.” When asked what he doesn’t like about quarantine he said, “It's making me very self-centered, and socially awkward. Also online school, and the lack of motivation to do it.” When asked what he likes about it he said, “Time to work on projects and have fun.” the time when you are running out of things to do, you get to be creative.
Some things you can do is make sure you stay caught up in your school work and that you are on track to graduate. You can work on school, seminary, family time, practice your skills, read and most of all reach out to people that really need your help. In these uncertain times, people need more love and help than ever. Even sometimes asking how someone is doing is enough.
So next time you're sitting there on your couch, getting tired of all the tv shows, maybe spend your time on something more productive or with your family. The more you serve others, the more happy you will be and the more you will feel accomplished at the end of the day. Congrats on all the resilience Mountain View!
