COVID-19 Chronicles: Lea

A contaminated city

April 27, 2020

January 21, 2020, in retrospect, appears a rather insignificant day in the grand scheme of our nation’s storied history. Lives remained virtually untouched, poised with the ordinary cadence of vibrant urban bustle and the customary interaction of friendly folk and carefree greetings. But that fateful...

This time can bring a combination of many emotions to different people based on their situations. Factors such as personal health, age, jobs, and others contribute to how life looks for different people at this time. For me, it actually hasn’t been that boring, considering the circumstances. While...

Surviving the COVID-19 quarantine.

BLOG POST 1: THE ANDERSON HOUSEHOLD I’m here. Sort of, I guess, but I’m here. It’s day three of the quarantine. I look in the mirror, and I have no idea what I see. The hairiness is real. I’ve reached and found my inner sasquatch as the hair growth on my face and across my body is like a black,...

Day five of Corona. I haven’t had a human interaction since lockdown. Food is sparse. I’m on my last sheet of toilet paper. Luckily, I have three more full packages left which should last me through the next few years. I fear that the end of the world is coming. Middle-aged mothers are turning into...

Covid-19, or more commonly known as the coronavirus, has completely exceeded my expectations. The small, cold-like virus that was solely affecting China is now the primary cause for a state-wide quarantine? My hopes and ambitions for the rest of the year have been shattered in a matter of days due to my u...

Back in 2008, my family and I adopted two black cats. When we adopted them, we had to sign a contract with the pet store saying we were not going to let them outside. Black cats are sometimes associated with witchcraft, so the pet store was considered for the cats safety. As of Monday of this week when ...

The hope of March Madness starting up during the break kept me and millions of other sports fans across the globe holding onto something positive in the future. In a world that was quickly coming to a halt, there was still a glimmer of hope. My trip to New York with my parents was cancelled, and I...

With all the fuss over being “quarantined” at home and not being able to go do many things we take for granted, let's not forget how extremely blessed we still are. Living in a clean house with sufficient food and water, is something that millions of people have never experienced. Simply, if missing...

COVID-19 Chronicles: Ava B.

The sunset at my family’s farm last Sunday. I’ve been spending lots of time outside in God’s creation during this quarantine.

Wow, what a crazy world we live in. I never thought my second semester of senior year would look like this, and honestly, I never thought I would live through a global pandemic that would cause every school in the country to close, along with restaurants, universities, stores, and practically everyth...

Three weeks ago, my day-to-day life was a lot different than it is now. I was itching to get a week off of school for spring break finally. I was convinced that seven days still wasn’t enough time to relax and recuperate before my last stretch of high school. I had a million fun things planned to do...

Never in my life have I felt like I'm living in a time where history is being made. I’ve heard stories and wondered what it would be like to live through the Great Depression, the Black Plague, and the World Wars. Now as we are all stuck at home, we are making history. Someday my children and my grandchildren...

COVID-19 Chronicles: Rebekah

My sister and I pushed our beds together to make a mega bed.

Rebekah Sems, Feature Editor

March 25, 2020

When my sister returned home from college, we debated about what we could do to make this strange time more exciting and different. We concluded that the best idea was to make a mega bed. By pushing together our two twin beds, we made a king size bed and piled on extra pillows and blankets. The result...
