Procrastination at its finest.

Before the year was cut short, students would complain about having to be in school every day. Little did they know online education would be much more difficult, now realizing the regular schedule was taken for granted.

Online school just isn’t the same as physically being in class.

“I’ve found understanding some of the teachers’ instructions difficult because it’s much harder to explain something through text,” 2020 senior Jesse Delgado said.

Interactions are also affected.

“I would like going back to school because I’d get to see all my friends and teachers,” 2020 senior Robert Camacho said.

At-home school  can be challenging for some students.

“It’s very distracting,” Delgado said. “Sometimes it’s easy to forget you even have online classes,” senior Luis Lopez said.

Time management is the main concern.

“If I don’t have time to do [my work] before, I do it the day it’s due,” Delgado said. “I need a forced schedule to do everything in an organized way.”

While some focus on work, others like the idea of resting all day.

“I like relaxing and being able to sleep at whatever time I want,” Camacho said.

Aside from education, online school took seniors’ biggest milestones away.

“I do feel bad for the seniors since they had to go to school for 12 years just to get their diploma off the internet,” Lopez said.
