Life: Then and Now

Hey everyone! Emma here. Over the past month, everyone’s lives have been flipped upside down. We’re all trying to adjust to the quarantine, and everyday life as been very different. I’m here to share what my life was like before the quarantine, and what it’s like now.


Before the quarantine, my life was pretty normal. I went to school and did my homework. I took dance classes three times a week, and listened to show tunes and drew in my free time. I walked home with my friends on sunny days when I didn’t have dance, and probably spent too much time looking at memes on Pinterest.


These days, I come downstairs at 10:00 Am and start my schoolwork for the day. I eat lunch around 1:00, and I still draw and listen to musicals when I’m done. I’ve been watching way too much YouTube. If you’re looking for recommendations, check out Overly Sarcastic Productions (warning: some cursing) and Hilariously Scary (I have plenty more, so ask and ye shall receive). I haven’t gotten properly dressed since school let out, so I mostly sit around in my pajamas. Every once and a while me and my friends video chat, so at least I can hear people’s voices and see their faces.

Overall, I really miss school, seeing all my teachers and friends, even the people I don’t like very much. Although I miss school, I’m so glad we can still talk to each other through video chats, and I think the state made the right choice shutting everything down.

Thanks for stopping by! This was a bit of a shorter post, but I wanted to post something, given how inactive I’ve been. How do you feel about the quarantine? Are you doing school at home? If you have any questions, comments, or just want to tell me anything, I would love if you could leave me a comment and a link to your blog!

  1. Hi Emma

    Things have certainly slowed down due to COVID and things are more relaxed (like our wardrobe!). It is good that we have some contact with others (imagine what it is like for people with poor or no technology…), so we are lucky in some ways.

    I am sure you know, teachers are missing students, too.

    Hopefully, things will soon change so that we can safely see more people, but for now, at least we have some form of communication, right? Blogging is a good way to spread your ideas across the globe.

    I hope you have enjoyed the Blogging Challenge too, even if there’s not a lot of activity to talk about – our thoughts and ideas are important too, don’t you think?
