Did you change your spring break plans because of the virus? From what to what?

I was originally just planning on going home to Houston for the week of spring break to see my family, but then I ended up getting stuck in Houston due to COVID-19 and have been here ever since.

How did you feel when you were informed the remainder of the semester would be held online?

At first I thought it would make classes easier, but it has actually been a lot harder than I assumed it would be. It made me realize how much I enjoy actually being in a classroom.

Where will you be living while courses are held online? Is this a change from usual?

I am back at home in Houston with my parents and younger siblings.

How has the virus (and the precautions taken to prevent it spreading) impacted your daily life?

I rarely leave my house. I used to love going to the grocery store, but now my dad just goes for us.

Are you staying in? What are you doing to pass the time?

I have been reading a lot and going on walks.

Are you going out? Where do you go and what is it like?

I have driven around to take pictures for my photography class. It is so strange to see how deserted everything is.
