I’ve always been thankful for my family and friends, but during this time, I’ve been especially thankful. I’ve been at school in person for about two months now, and a few of my friends have had to quarantine. Thankfully, I have not had to quarantine yet, but I’ve tried to be there for my friends who are quarantined right now. As schools and businesses slowly open with many precautions, like my acting group, I’ve had those friends to look forward to seeing every week. My family has helped me through technical challenges with Zoom and with virtual learning, especially at the beginning of the year, so I’m thankful for them for that. At the beginning of this year, I would have never expected to see a “Please stay 6 feet away from others!” poster outside my school, but I’m thankful that everyone mostly complies with that rule in the halls. Classrooms cannot be distanced since there’s a limited space that can fit desks, but we’ve definitely tried to maintain social distancing by skipping every other seat in the classes. The eight-seater tables in the cafeteria became four-seaters. With all this change coming very fast at all of us, I’m thankful that my family and friends have been there through all of it.
