2020 a year that we will be happy to be over but one we will not forget. For most of us, living through a global pandemic, such asCovid -19, is a a first. It has brought challenges and opportunities, financial woes, but for some, financial gains. It has united families and torn them apart (over 250,000 Americans have died, almost 1,353,000 million world wide). Mental health issues, excessive alcohol use and weight gain have also been byproducts. 50 years from now you will be telling this story to your grandkids! For this extra credit activity you must answer each question with a minimum of 150 words. Be specific, include detail. Write this like you would an entry in a journal. No one will see this but me. Read all the questions first. It’s all or nothing here. Answer each bullet point in a separate paragraph. Incomplete journals will not be given credit. Submit this by December 5th. What were your initial thoughts and feelings about Covid? Were you concerned? Skeptical? What are your feelings now? How has the virus disrupted your daily life? What are you missing? School, sports, competitions, extracurricular activities, social plans, vacations or anything else? What effect has this crisis had on your own mental and emotional health? What changes, big or small, are you noticing in the world around you? These should be good and bad. How have you and your family been impacted financially (or not)? How has your (or family) job changed? Are you spending more or less? Think of a person you are close to (for example, a family member, friend, teacher, or neighbor). How has your relationship to that person changed since the coronavirus outbreak began? How has it stayed the same? When we return to “normal,” what pre-COVID-19 parts of your life are you going to change? What do you miss the most from your life before COVID-19? What are you learning about yourself during this shift in life?
