A 2020 Wake Up Call

To the entire world, Tommy Glenn (’23) wishing everyone a better year.

2020 made me realize that I like to do things I never thought about before, going to the park and just chilling and listening to music. I did not know that I could just relax and still have fun at the same time. I think that I can do that on a regular basis now because I think that it’s kind of fun.

What 2020 taught me about the school is it taught me that I like it better getting up to go to school then rather getting on the Chromebook in the early morning. I like hands-on learning and the COVID 19 situations made me realize that. I think school should just be in person because it messed up a lot of people’s grades and rhythm in school because a lot of people just didn’t do it because of home situations.

What 2020 taught me about life is that it’s really messed up on how life really is in the real world and that you can’t take things for granted because it can change it in a matter of seconds. It also taught me that I need to be cleaner with washing my hands for a longer period of time and taking care of the little things like wearing a mask being socially distant.

I think that everyone should forget about 2020 and look for the future because 2020 was probably the worst year of my life and everything that happened and it felt like the longest year. Starting with Kobe Bryant, I knew it was going to be a rough year. 

I hope that 2021 will the one of best years ever to make up for how bad 2020 was and hope that everyone has a good new year.
