Gaining back my freedom

At first I was relieved that we didn’t have school for four weeks due to the pandemic. But as time went on those weeks turned into months, then a whole year, and during that whole time I had nothing to do all day besides play video games and talk to my friends through social media. It got quite boring during quarantine, having to stay in the house all day. I’ve realized how much I missed the joy of being outside and all the people I talked to.  But once it was announced that students would be going back to school, I was so excited to get to be outside again and I made sure to make the most of it.

[Video: After school I would go to a program called A Place Called Home (APCH) where I would be provided a variety of classes to choose and and get to hang out with friends from school or meet new people from other areas.]
