As the school year came to a close at Pius X, some students were faced with what to do once their school work was done.
Junior Riley Tassemeyer spoke about what he has been doing to make sure he hasn’t gotten bored.
“All I’ve really done is lifted, work out, and play video games with my friends,” Tassemeyer said. “I mean, I would prefer if I could do a whole mixture of other things, but that is not the way that the world is right now.”
Junior Landon Novosad has been doing other things as well.
“Aside from homework and all of the schoolwork that I still have to do, I’ve been playing video games, talking to friends, working out and all of that kind of stuff,” Novosad said.
Some students, such as junior Rilyn Metzler, have been trying to make the most out of the situation.
“I have kind of found this situation as a time to enjoy,” Metzler said. “It has given me a lot of time to reflect and enjoy some time with my family. I still get to work out and practice volleyball and other things.”
Some students aren’t exactly sure as to what they are going to do during quarantine, so these three have suggestions.
“I would like to push everyone to spend more time with their families if possible,” Metzler said. “Whether that be inside or outside, spending time with family is what every person needs.”
Some want people to enjoy the outdoors.
“If I could give anybody a suggestion right now, it would be to go outside and enjoy nature while it is not crowded,” Novosad said. “But above all, I want people to stay motivated and do what they enjoy.”
And others want people to better themselves.
Tassemeyer said, “If I didn’t know what I was doing, I would just start to better myself physically. If you take the time to work on everything this day and age, you can emerge from quarantine a better and changed person.”
