Isolation has been a unique experience for everyone. Some people may say it’s also been fun and exciting, whereas others may not. Learning from home, hanging out with my family, and generally managing my own time, have all been positive aspects for myself. Although, what I’ve loved about isolation the most, is seeing how the community comes together to support one another.

A big downfall of isolation though is not being able to engage within a classroom, ask as many questions and further my connection with the teacher. These have all been difficult, however, also very beneficial. I have learned so much more about resources, as well as how to self-motivate myself, and become an initiator. This whole experience has really taught me to grow and learn by myself and truly become independent. And, believe it or not, this has increased my confidence and mindset towards home-based schooling. But I will say, the biggest downfall of isolation is not being able to see my friends. With not being able to see them, I have had to communicate with my friends more over text message and learn how to control the tone of my voice too.

Generally doing things that I love through quarantine has been so great. Being able to work out more, create more drawings and complete more creative activities, all when it best suits me, has truly been amazing. Although, I will say that my sleeping patterns have dramatically changed, and it’s been difficult to adjust to everything now that things are slowly starting to get back to normal.

With that, I hope everyone is keeping safe during this time and is taking advantage of the spare time we all now have.


Hello and welcome back to my blog, I hope you are all enjoying your holidays and are having a great summer. For me, I love the holidays, it’s a great chance for me to hang out with my friends, siblings and go swimming at the beach. Just like most children I was really excited for Christmas. This year I got to make lunch for my dad and brothers which was nice. I am not a very strong reader, although I did enjoy reading all the recipes and relating text back to pictures. Sometimes I don’t like reading because it gets boring, although if you find the right book, you can read all the time! Some people read books, the newspaper, articles, and more factual things. For me, I like to read magazines, short books, blogs, recipes and articles on things I like. I think it is important to practice and try to read as much as possible.


Hello, I’m a young female and I’m starting year 9 in 2020. I’m 13 years old and I love anything to do with arts, and if anyone would like to know, my favorite color is yellow. I live in a small apartment, with my parents and three brothers, and I attend a popular private school within the heart of Melbourne. On a side note, I’m really interested in design work, art, project development, business, event planning, and fashion. I also have a lot of hobbies that I love to do in my own time, and I consider myself as a creative person.
