Hello, this is Zach here for day number… whatever! I’m not sure what day of quarantine it is. Oh boy, how long have we been quarantined for? This is something else entirely…

Everything feels sort of strange, as we’re home now. I would say it’s been a really long week for me and I’ve been busy because I had to do a long essay for college that I wrapped up today.

Being a Scholar can be so much fun sometimes, but this is not one of those times. It’s not been fun not going to school. I honestly feel like this is just the worst way things have gone. I wish I had a webcam to record this, but all the stores are closed. Hurray for quarantine!

Nothing is open, and it’s super weird not seeing anyone outside. Everyone’s been like they’ve just been trapped in their house. I have managed to not lose my mind so far… though I could say I’ve come close to going off the wall. The only things that have kept me from [doing that] are probably my family, video games and friends.

How much longer are we home for? A month? Oh boy… thanks Virus, you’re really fun.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got to say for now. Might do this again sometime. See you later!
