Hello from quarantine
Hey guys, sorry for not posting anything since one and a half weeks.
My school had to be closed due to the coronavirus and I was busy since then getting access to the different virtual platforms, which I need for home schooling. It’s now “week two” at home and I have a simple daily routine. My alarm rings at seven, I get up, take a shower, get dressed and have breakfast. Then instead of sitting in the classroom, I sit in front of my laptop and work on my school tasks. Some teachers give way too much homework. While I enjoy working on tasks at my own pace, I have to admit that I really miss my friends and that I feel lonely sometimes. I’m trying to distract myself and came up with some good ideas to include into my daily routine:
- Do some workouts
- Clean my room and change something in it
- Read a book
- Facetime my friends
- Watch a movie or a series
- Go for a walk
- Cook or bake something
- Clean my closet
I know it’s a terrible situation for everybody and also for the economy. Nobody knows how it will be like in future. But if we all take care, stay at home and safe, we should soon be able to live our normal lives again.
I hope you are fine and of course I’m online if you need some new ideas for activities against boredom. ;)
Feel free to comment on my blog. 😊

How COVID-19 changed my life
Since Monday the 16th of March I had to stay at home because of the novel virus called Coronavirus or COVID-19. You’re only allowed to leave your house when you have to do the grocery shopping, go to work or need to help people that aren´t able to do it by themselves. There´s a lot that´s changed since that day. And that’s my life since that virus has occurred.
The advantage of my routine is that I can sleep a lot longer. Normally, I get up at 6 a.m. Now I mostly leave my bed around 8-9 a.m. Then I start doing my online schooling. My opinion to that system is a bit ambivalent. On the one hand I think it is a cool way to get more independent and you can choose when you do which assignment, but on the other hand I really miss the ordinary school system because I think after a time it gets very exhausting and a bit unclear.
My feelings about the Coronavirus are mostly bad. I am often really bored when I have finished my assignments. Also, I love spending time with my friends outdoors and I really miss them because they are like my second family. But obviously, I adhere to the rules. It’s important to protect the people that are really in danger if they get in touch with the virus. But I'm still happy when all this is over.
If you are also really bored or don’t know what to do in the “Corona-break”, I would recommend some activities for you. First of all, it’s important to stay fit and healthy and currently it gets very warm outside. So, if you have a garden or a balcony, then use it and do some workouts. Or grab a book you never got the time to read. There are a lot more activities you can do at home than you think.
Do you think that Coronavirus will last longer than after the Easter break? I wish you good luck in that difficult time and stay healthy!

How I’ve been so far since the school closing
Sorry that I haven’t posted something in a while.
You probably know that many schools have shut down because of the Coronavirus. Well, mine did too. My routine has changed a lot since the closing. During the week, I always wake up at 8 o’clock. For breakfast I normally make a café Frappé. It’s easy to make and it helps me start the morning. You should definitely try it too! If you want to make it, just comment down below and I’ll write a blog entry about it. The next thing I do is create a plan of the tasks I need to do. After that, I start doing them. Throughout the breaks, I sometimes read a book, talk to my parents, prepare food for my sister and me or I simply sit on my phone and check social media.
My feelings are changing a lot during the Coronavirus-Holidays. Mostly, I feel tired since we have many assignments to do. The hardest part is to not get confused and always stay concentrated or you will lose the thread. Last week, I lost it for a short time. We were suddenly given a bunch of tasks at the same time. The best factors are, that you can choose when you want to take breaks or if you don’t feel like doing a specific task, then you can accomplish it another time. I like working independently.
Here are some things you can do to stay healthy:
- Mostly eat healthy food, like lots of vegetables and fruit. You can look for some small dishes on Pinterest.
- Do a home-workout. Keep your body fit.
- Don’t go to bed late. Set an alarm clock in the morning.
- Schedule breaks in which you are not sitting in front of a screen.
- If the sun is shining, go outside and read a book.
I hope you’re all okay. Tell me something about your weeks at home! What is your daily routine?

Hello fellow blog users from around the world! Since this whole COVID-19 thing is currently happening, I thought that I would talk about it in my blog! I’d really like to hear how things are handled where you live, so feel free to tell me in the comments!
Our last school day was March 13th. The first week of my “corona holidays” was very weird, we had all of our school work online for the first time in our lives. It definitely took some time to get used to that. I personally don’t know if I prefer online school at home or normal school, because both methods have their pros and cons.
When I first heard of COVID-19, I honestly didn’t know how to feel about it. Everything happened really quickly, I first read about the virus in the middle of January and now it’s March and the schools, shops and restaurants are all closed. It still feels very surreal to me, like in a movie! It’s also crazy how fast the coronavirus is spreading. There are already about 700.000 people from all around the world, who are infected with it and the number is steadily increasing.
But we’re all in this together! So, I’d like to recommend you an activity, where you can hopefully forget this madness for some time. I really like to go out on a walk with my dog (of course either alone or only with the people I live with), because the nature is still the same as before and you won’t hear the word “coronavirus”, “COVID-19” or “pandemic” for a little while.
Stay safe & healthy!

Covid-19 – good or bad?
Sorry that I haven’t posted much lately, but as you might have already noticed life is changing pretty much right now because of the coronavirus. Students aren’t able to go to school, shops have to close and many adults have to do home-office. Everything is different since the last couple of weeks and I’d like to share my point of view with you.
Last week was the first time I ever got to experience home school. It was definitely weird to be ready for school in less than half an hour, but I could get used to that situation. Also, my entire family is at home and we spend more time together than usual. I really like that, but sometimes it can also get too much, if you know what I mean.
Since it’s already the second week, I’ve figured out a daily routine for myself: I wake up at around 6.45 and start the day with reading a book, because we have to do it for a school project and it’s also a nice thing to do. After that, I do my normal morning routine and at 8 a.m. I like to start studying with Christina via skype. At 12 a.m. lunch is ready and we eat together as a family. After my lunchbreak I continue studying and do it for as long as I want to. If it’s good weather outside, I take a walk with my family or do some other sports.
I think it really sucks not being able to see my friends face to face every day. I really miss them!!! I never thought I would miss school that much, but as it turns out I kind of do because of them. I guess a positive thing about this virus is that it made us appreciate what we took for granted.
However, I like to stay positive, so I thought about some things to do while you’re staying at home. You could clean your room, bake and cook new recipes or do sports. Don’t forget to clean your hands occasionally and stay hydrated.
I’d really like to hear about your thoughts and experiences during quarantine, so please let me know in the comments!
See you soon,
