In March 2020, this was the beginning of one of the hardest times of my life. The start of a pandemic, something I never thought I would experience in my life time. I went from sitting in a classroom with my friends five days a week, to not being able to see them for the rest of the time I was in high school. It completely changed me as a person, I wasn’t motivated to do anything. I started to create bad habits which was taking my focus away from school. I knew I had only enough time to get back into focusing on school before I didn’t graduate on time.

I began on taking small steps to get back into making school my number one priority. I started to limit myself on how much video games I played and fixed my sleeping schedule. This helped me wake up much earlier for school and made my days much more productive. I still use this strategy today even though I don’t play video games as much, but a good sleeping schedule has always been the key for me to stay focus. Overtime I noticed this was the strategy that worked best for me during the pandemic. I began doing so well that I eventually graduated early. In all, I recommend everyone to find a strategy that helps them be better even if it takes time, everything isn’t always going to work, be patient.
