Some weeks have gone by since this completely new experience started. At first it was hard to get used to, and I felt a bit overwhelmed. Time has passed and I feel that I am getting the hang of it. I have learned to organise myself and look at the positive side of this whole situation, which even though it can be challenging at times, seems to help a lot. Im not going to deny that it is a bit hard, but given the whole situation I believe that all we can do is sit tight and hope for the best. If there is something that I have learned up to now, apart from organisation skills and looking at the positive side, is that there are a lot of things we take for granted on our day to day basis, such as a normal school life, face to face interaction, and much more. I think that when this whole situation passes we’ll all have more of a blissful outlook towards daily life.
Since we have been working on Britain, we made a group presentation about a specific english landmark. I worked with Juansi Machado and Santi Yezze on the River Thames. This is our presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/17aMzCaMUQGFxac7-iflOoS-85rqWr_IpUvvm4dQ8VL0/edit?usp=sharing
The first task we had to do was a summary on the story “The Gold Cadillac” by Mildred Taylor . Instead of writing it, I did a voice recording on voocaroo. This is my work: https://voca.ro/gFsCObGJ63D
Another task we worked on is British festivities. We worked in groups to search up different British celebrations, based on that work we had to individually write about an argentine celebration. I wrote about El Dia de la Tradición: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18lpDTQ6-QLKFIj4gB552i5Fw7K7KkYIb6RguZI0nsVE/edit
for our language class we had to write a poem that spread a positive message about the quarantine. Here is my poem:
I ask you to keep away if you wheeze,
And cover your mouth if you sneeze.
Bathe yourself in gel,
And get way from this hell
Since you cannot self medicate,
Why don’t you try and meditate?
Put your worries on the shelf,
And get to know yourself
Oh! Do stay hidden in shelter,
So we can finally put an end to this helter skelter
