Online school is a new experience, and like many others, I found it hard to adapt to. On a normal day, I try to wake up 15-30 minutes before classes start, so that I can prepare myself for them. However hard this is at first, it helps refresh you and you are alert in the classes. When I prepare for class, I try to make sure I have what I need for things to go smoothly – notebooks, pencils, pens, and anything else necessary. During the first year of online school, I struggled with taking notes, but I soon found that taking short, concise notes are what help most, because they help put your point across without wasting any time. Between classes, I enjoy spending time with my family or my pet, which energizes me. Once I am done with classes, I take a short break and relax or watch TV. Based on how much homework I have, I try to get it finished before 3:30 or 4 and leave the rest of the day free. In the evening, I spend time on a hobby, like reading, yoga, or drawing. After this, I call some friends, or my brother, to hang out and play. This is probably my favourite time of day because I forget about any school or general worries and am surrounded by people I love. To end my day, I try to sleep before 10:30, so that I get ample rest and can wake up on time. Before I go to sleep, I listen to music or read for some time, because it always leaves me feeling calmer and ready to do it all again tomorrow.
