Diary Entry 1

Ever since school ended, so much has changed. I remember going to BJ’s and seeing so many people stand in line with more than two carts full preparing for quarantine. I didn't realize how severe this coronavirus was until schools closed. I was surprised such a thing could happen during my freshman year. In the end, I guess I made the most of it by enjoying myself. I mean, I think I did always want to work from home rather than waking up at 6:00 in the morning just for school.  Like, come on. What kid doesn't want to stay at home and do everything from there. It did kind of put a dent on these highschool memories I'm building up, but to me, it's for the best. I can work almost ten times harder, and I have more energy than ever. I much rather work from home because it gives me time to be free. I will work hard to get the best grades possible this year. I want to accomplish my dreams and go to a top college or one of my favorite colleges. I am dedicated, and nothing will get in my way. I came into Quarantine, not thinking about my future, but as time goes on, I want to make sure I set myself up for success. I have also grown to observe different parts of the world and see the smallest things. I want to make sure by the end of this Quarantine I am proud of what I've done. Let's just hope everything goes well.

Life at my house hasn't changed much, but one noticeable change is that my family is much more careful now. Many households used to be carefree before the pandemic, but now everything is always being wiped down for germs. Nowadays, work shoes can't even come inside the house. My household is now a lot more strict about keeping things clean and making sure to sanitize everything. In the end, this is a good thing because we live in a world where many diseases could impact us. It's a great thing we can fight against them by keeping clean.

Diary Entry 3 

Something I want to do when I'm older is go on an adventure and travel the world. The reason why I want to do this is that life is short, and it could just be flash. Before I know it, I'll be very old, only looking forward and seeing death as my fate. The world is such a small place, but there are so many things I haven't experienced or seen, and that's why I want to travel. It would be great to acknowledge different cultures aside from my own. Furthermore, I also want to leave the world, knowing I accomplished my dreams. In addition to that, something else I want to achieve is giving my parents what they deserve. I hope to become very rich so that I can give back to my parents. I want to be the person to buy them a mansion and spoil them with gifts because they're the ones who make me who I am today the most. Family is essential to me, and in fact, I’d do anything for my parents. Even if I'm not productive, I would still like to spoil my parents with gifts. It's a dream of mine to do this, and I hope I can.
