A Day of Online School

Hey guys, this is Burak, from Burak's Blog.

So, I've wanted to show you guys my hectic schedule of online school, so why not.

No, I'm not going to re-write "A Day In My Life", which you should totally read, but it'll still be good.

Without further ado, let's get started.

I wake up at around 7 in the morning, and just go and sit on the bathroom for a few minutes as I slowly start to wake up. Afterwards, I wash my hands and set up my virtual desktop so I can use my actual computer instead of a laggier Chromebook. This process takes around 15 minutes, and it's nice to have some time to wake up and get ready for the day.

Then, for the next 30 minutes after 7:15, I fill out the attendance form and I do my long Social Studies assignment on Ancient India. As the days go on, they get longer and I might have to give myself some extra time. Anyways, I then wake up everybody in my DMs with a "good morning", or if they're in my social studies class, then "I live in Mohenjo-Daro please visit me".

After that, we get to English, or LAL. Since this consists of writing and reading, it takes twice the amount of time it takes me to do another period. Today, we had a journal entry that was 1 and a half pages, we had to record our "favorite reading spot", and we had to complete 15 minutes of Khan Academy grammar. Not fun, but a good tip in life is that if you have similar assignments in which one is graded on completion, and the other is graded on length, multi-tasking is amazing. I opened an instance of Khan Academy as I did my journal entry, and I was able to complete everything at 8:30.

Afterwards, people actually started waking up, and I, in the meanwhile, completed my Life Skills and Gym homework. I did have 3 Geometry mathspaces, but they were due tomorrow, and I didn't feel like completing them.

Then, after reading an article about food in space, and procrastinating on half of my classes, it was 9:15 and it was time for some fun. Zoom. My science teacher invited my entire grade, about 90 people, to one Zoom call, and oh boy it was hectic. My internet, of course, was drowning in the sweat of me spamming in the chat, so I wasn't really able to hear the teacher. However, in the recorded version of the livestream, I found out that the Science assignment was due tomorrow. So, as Michael and I always do, we procrastinated.

After I finish online school, the rest of the day is pretty much relaxed. I do study for 3-4 hours on a college exam that I don't want to clarify yet, but for the most part, I just enjoy the rest of my day. I practice piano, go the Nether in Minecraft, kill the Red Legion in Destiny 2, and race "real people" in Forza Horizon 4. I spend the remainder of my hard working time with my parents, and play board games or occasionally play Mario Party.

Online School, in my opinion, is much better than normal school, as I finish everything quickly and have the rest of the day to myself. I can actually do day-trades in the stock market, and I, overall, just feel relaxed. As I reach the middle of my second week of online school, I'll probably stop relaxing and actually attempt to do things productively. At least I don't burn spoons in Life Skills, zone out in Geometry, and watch people play Paper.io 2 on there phones in LAL, rather, I now play Minecraft with the boys, play with Michael in random squads and try to kill our teammates, and try to learn how to drift in Forza Horizon. For now, I'm enjoying this, and I hope it lasts that way, as I think school's going to be closed for a little more than 2 weeks.

This is Burak, signing off for now.
