A look into what a day looks like for me as a Texas Tech student in rural east Texas.
Over a month ago, the lives of every person at Texas Tech and across the country were completely upended. Campus was shut down, and people were sent home. It was hard adjusting to online classes for many of us. I personally love going to class. I love sitting in a classroom, seeing my friends, having a schedule and having a designated place to learn and work. So, altering my way of life was difficult as it was for many of you. While the normal college experience ceased to exist for the time being, life continues to move forward for all of us.
A typical day of quarantine life at home in Honey Grove, Texas looks as follows. The day starts with coffee, work and bones for the pup; I paint when I need a break from my laptop screen. We may go into town to run errands once or twice a week, picking up worksheets from the high school my mom teaches at and lunch from local restaurants. Back home, we feed the animals and get an evening workout in before winding down on the coach and calling it a day.
These times have been tough for everyone, but together, we will beat these hard times and come back home to Texas Tech.
