What About the Future?
"The short break we took transitioning from physical classes to online classes was welcome, and the following online classes were rather peaceful, calming, you could say. I would lay down on my bed for a few minutes between classes, and I felt refreshed at each and every class I joined.

What's it like to be a Junior who has had to leave the country and experience quarantine in a small apartment? Read Sam Swinehart's experience here:
"Picture this: It’s the middle of summer vacation, and it’s a balmy 79 degrees outside - a sprinkle of clouds are sparsely scattered across the sky, and there’s a cool breeze outside. It’s the picturesque summer day. And, you’re stuck inside. You aren’t allowed to leave the house because of, that’s right, the coronavirus."

A Junior's Perspective on Quarantine, Including a Review
"With this global pandemic having spread far across the world starting in China, the effects of its damage are being felt even in the small country of Nicaragua. Although the number of reported COVID-19 cases is low, the country as a whole is taking precautions against the virus, and this includes the school that I go to, the American Nicaraguan School. As an 11th grader, I can’t help but feel lucky for having had the chance to take the SAT test, since many others were unable to all across the world, and many more had their May test cancelled. However, this does not change the fact that I am unable to go to school, alongside millions of other students across the globe."

A Senior Student's Perspective - "What I find most interesting about these times is that our generation loves to spend their time inside hibernation, on our phones, computers, tablets, game consoles and overall lacking interaction with others but now that we have the chance to do so (yes, under non-ideal circumstances), we do not want to anymore. It makes me think that it is our nature to want what we can’t have. It also makes me think that we do not appreciate things until they are taken away from us, in this case our freedom."
