Keeping up with E-Learning and other quarantine thoughts
May 7, 2020
Hello everyone, and welcome to the 51st edition of Clarion Socially Distanced Diaries, courtesy of yours truly, Liam Mathews. Normally I wouldn’t have added that sentence, but I can already tell that I’m gonna struggle to make this long enough, so I needed a space filler. That sentence was also a space filler, I’m so sorry. So now that I’ve added three filler sentences we can get to my actual SDD, spoiler alert, it was boring.
I think we’re on our eighth week of quarantine now (to be honest that guess could be way off, I’ve completely lost track of time) and all of my days pretty much seem the same. My boredom levels are at an all time high, I literally have three different activities to do each day, and none of them are particularly interesting, so I won’t waste your time, as well as mine by writing about them in depth, so instead I’m just gonna write a brief overview of my day, and then we can both be on our way.
Over the last week or two, I feel like E-Learning has become basically non-existent, just a couple of weeks ago I was complaining about getting too much work, and now it seems like I’m getting none, I guess someone was listening to me. But seriously, all of a sudden my teachers are all assigning us a worksheet or two on monday, saying that they’re due Thursday. Now listen, I’m never one to complain about having an assignment due later in the week, but I just want to let my teachers know, they’re playing a dangerous game here, the chances are very low that I’m gonna do work for three classes in one day, and even lower that I would do some of that work before the day it’s due. This is like playing Russian Roulette with classes, it’s completely random which classes I do the work for, and which classes I don’t, I’ve already decided to do my Spanish, but it’s a toss up between whether I do my Euro notes or my health Ed Puzzles, there’s also something out there that i’m supposed to be doing for Chem, but I’m not sure exactly what it is. Anyway, my point is that seeing something assigned early in the week due on Thursday or Friday never actually works out the way I hope it will, it’s all fun and games until somebody gets hurt, namely my grade.
Well that train of thought turned to take up way more space than I thought it would, maybe I didn’t need all that filler space, if you’re reading this, go ahead and forget about those first three sentences. So that’s pretty much all that I think is worth sharing with you today, and I think this article is long enough, so I think I’ll leave it off here, I sincerely hope quarantine doesn’t go on long enough for me to write a third one of these.
