topic_interest is exactly struggling
2020-11-04It is no surprise that low income students are struggling during the period of online or distance learning. In order to aid low income students and families, Pittsburg is offering an estimate of 700-800 families with internet that would have otherwise gone without. The schools in the district it affects feel that it will make a great impact for those who either have no internet or unstable internet services. Families that qualify for this service will pay no fees, and will help the some 20% of families with lack of or poor internet service.
2020-10-11Covid-19 has impacted so many people’s lives and routines, including mine. I left my first year of college early to move back home, switched from in person classes to online, was jobless for a few months, was quarantined, etc. This year, I have felt nothing but drained and tired. Similarly, to man in the photo, I have no source of energy. I am struggling with online classing, struggling with time management, and struggling with being stuck in one place for so long. I am a social butterfly who enjoys hanging out with her friends, being on campus and experiencing life. However, everything has changed due the pandemic. Everywhere I go, I must always make sure I am being careful and taking extra precautions. I must go to work, wear a mask all day and interact with people, despite how worried I am about my safety. I am aware that everyone is struggling and that my experience so far can relate to many others.
