Stay home for too long!

These days, We must stay at home. I do a lot of things in my house. I play the piano, I do gymnastics, I listen to music and others… My schools found the solution and I do lessons at my home. I spend my time very well but sometimes I don’t like the lessons very much on the Internet because we didn’t have very good wi-fi and without wi-fi, we don’t do a lesson. Fortunately, we have our cats for company! I love my family and I am glad which these days, I spend my time with them.

COVID-19:Old age

Real loneliness is not what we used to call during the quarantine. Real loneliness can’t use the internet, Facebook, Viber or Skype. Real loneliness can’t write on a piece of paper or send an SMS to go out of the house. Can’t watch a movie on Netflix to pass the time. It never takes selfies and never shares on Instagram. It doesn’t use smartphones with applications never go for a walk or shopping in a supermarket. For some people, the meaning of life is a door opening, a doorbell ringing. But now, COVID-19 made that doorbell shut out. Real loneliness has wrinkles and it’s called old age. So, think! Every time we feel bored on our sofa, watching a movie eating pizza, every time we complain about those people who feel alone.Those people who have grown others, who have given them their best they could.Those people who got forgotten and rejected much before COVID-19. But even so, they forgive. Love aged people because they carry the charge of them, show them love and kindness.

Covid-19 experiences at home

We all thought 2020 is going to be a good year for all of us but unfortunately, it was not. This year something different happened but is ok because we had new experiences and that is so cool and interesting.
A lot of stuff makes me happy those days like play with my dog, bake a cake or some delicious cookies. Some times I go online with my friends and play games, but my favourite thing about quarantine is that I can see my family all day and we can play board games or we can talk. Also, I like to go through and look at old albums with old photos is very interesting and u can remember happy moments with your family and friends !! A truth about me that I almost have seen all the Netflix movies so now I don’t have more movies to see in my free time :(. Another cool thing is the online school is a very good way to see your friends and do lessons too !!
Coronavirus has given us a great lesson we all must careful and remember that life is a pleasant gift.

The days of 2020

Hello miss Viki
I write this email to tell you how I spent my time all these days. First of all, I want to say that is very boring in the house all these days but with this opportunity, I found more things to do.

So these days I really listen to music all day because music is one of my favourite hobbies. Also during the day instead to listen to music all day I exercise my body. That is a hobby that I found and I like this very much. Something else that I start to do is to waste my time with my mum thing that I could not do. I am very bored but am very happy because I found new things to waste my time.

This is my email I wish to start again to hang out with my friends. Let me know if you liked my email.

The positive and the negative aspects of staying at home

Being limited is nearly always a letdown. But sometimes if you have strong nerves and imagination it will turn out a bit funny or even exciting. Here we will analyse some good facts about the quarantine who will help you feel better.
Firstly, limited transportation is really what the planet needed. The worldwide quarantine is like a punishment from mother earth. Just think that she was so sick that she took some days off. Although these days seem to be ages.
Secondly, people are more than ever outside. Either for a walk or to daydream or even just to take a deep breath from the fresh air. Believe me, Amali (where I live) haven’t seen so many people from the time of her creation. Think of how many papers or messages with “Β4” written on them.
During the coronavirus confinement we do some things that we wouldn’t do in other conditions like try new foods or play new games and this can be very interesting. What about finding a new passion or hate.
I could think of a lot of bad aspects of staying at home but… I am here to make you feel better, not worse. DO NOT FORGET TO HAVE FUN.

What are the positive and negative things of staying inside? What can we do to make our time more pleasant?

What are the positive and negative things of staying inside? How can we make our time more pleasant?

Staying inside is not something that humans can handle easily. So it’s hard to get used to it and find something fun to do while we are bored or we have nothing to do. But what are the positive and negative things of staying inside, and what can we do to make our time more pleasant?

Firstly, staying inside makes us feel bored inside a house, and we think that the day does not have an end. It also makes us feel lonely because we can’t see our friends and some members of our family like grand-parents, uncles, aunts and our cousins.
But, on the other hand, we have to stay inside so we stay healthy and help the coronavirus disease (COVID) stop spreading. And also for our loved ones, we have to protect them from the disease!
Last but not least, there are many ways that we can make our time less boring and more pleasant, firstly we have to do things that we like and things that we enjoy the most. Or if it’s possible we can practice our hobby at home, but there are some hobbies that we can’t practice at home like rowing, swimming etc.
To sum up, I believe that we have to stay at home so we protect our family and our own! I understand that it’s difficult to implement it but we have to try, for our planet’s good!

Technology’s negative effect on teenagers and generally people

Can someone just imagine what life would be without the technological facilities that have been offered to us by engineers? Even though all we have to do is look in the past, the youth of the 21st century don’t seem to be able to.
For one thing, the new generation, that grew up in the development of technology, is known as the “electronic age babies”. It has come to my attention that most parents seem to allow their children to spend a minor amount of time watching television from a very young age. Therefore, the children internalize the habit of entertaining themselves with technology. Moreover, it is evident that teenagers communicate with each other bias the internet. However, it is clear that vocal communication has faded, while conversation is mainly in text messages. As a result, the art of real face-to-face communication is almost forgotten, due to the deficiency of its practice. Even when they are together their heads are still lowered facing that small box, called cell phone.
Furthermore, we live in a world of troubled youths. In other words, the use of the internet by adolescents might have a negative impact on their physical or mental health. A typical example is social influences, such as models; actors; public figures; bloggers and their effect on teens in various cases. All these people, who seem to do a lot of activities during the day; stay fit and have a perfect body; go on vacation and at the same time have a personal life and be good at almost everything, illustrate an image of perfection in an almost clueless adolescent’s mind, desperate to be something close to that “perfection”, filling them with anxiety. Owing to the fact that school, homework, extracurricular activities or lessons etc. are already stressing teens out, more stress caused by unnecessary deeds makes them feel even more pressured. This leads to anxiety, stress or even depression in severe cases.
That being said, the current pandemic decease, known as COVID-19 or the coronavirus, has got us cooped up in our houses. Technology now is needed more than ever, so we can stay in touch with our relatives, friends, teachers and colleagues. On the one hand, this is partly true, but on the other, this situation has got us longing for some real communication outside quarantine. In this way, not only the internet remains the main form of entertainment, but also people are becoming “addicted” to it to a greater extent.
Taking everything into account, technology does benefit communication, but people do not use it in order to do just that, while teens are constantly on it. Parents should also consider the time they allow their children to spend on any type of technology and introduce them to other forms of amusement. Besides, there’s a much bigger world beyond the screen.

What do I do in quarantine that makes me happy

We are all tired of quarantine but there are some things that make us happy like a hobby!

I really like to cook so I cook meals for my family. I often ride my bike near my house with my brother. I love reading books too! Ι play a musical instrument but I don’t have much time because I have to study for my online classes. It makes me happy to spend time with my family.

What makes me happy in Quarantine

These days aren’t the best to go out. I would like to share with you how I am spending my time and make my shelf as happy as I can.

We all have friends who stay far away in other cities and it is difficult to connect. It’s time to talk with them from Skype or Viber.

Coronavirus made it hard to eat out at our favourite restaurant. It is time for me to practice my cook skills on healthy recipes. I learnt how to make pasta, baked beans, vegetarian cupcakes and other things.

It is a great time for me to wake up in the morning and practice some fun exercises that my coach sent to me to do.

What is more beautiful than coming together as a family. We are playing board games, we are watching movies, we are going for short walks and we are trying to spend as much time together.

It is rare to find opportunities like these to spend a good time with my family and do a lot of things that I like!!!

How I spend these days and what makes me happy

These days I have a good time. I’m involved with many things these days. I do gymnastics, I ride a bike with my mum and many more. We do English lessons through an application and it’s perfect. We are thinking of starting dance lessons with video calling and I can’t wait. I don’t want to go back to the time when I didn’t have any free time and I had a lot of lessons and things to do. What makes me happy is that I have a lot of free time to take care of my family and myself.

The positive and negative aspects of staying inside and what we can do to make our time more pleasant.

In this period of time we must all be calm, patient and to remember that we stay at home for our good and health. I know that we can not meet and hang out with our beloved people and going out in general. However, there are and positive aspects of this situation. First of all, we relax and we take a quit big break from our lessons and our studies, something that I am sure that everyone wanted or needed. Furthermore, now, it’s a good chance to do things that we wanted, but we couldn’t do as we were busy. Also, in order to spend our time productively, we can start a hobby, take care of our body, exercise, do housework, dear with cooking, play board games with our family, read books or our school books. If we stay positive, have good vibes and spend our time productively, this period will pass more quickly and pleasant!

The positives and negatives of staying inside

This year didn’t start well. Covid-19, also known as the coronavirus, made the whole world stay inside. There are a lot of negatives and positives of staying inside. These are for me the positives and negatives of staying home.
At the start it would look pretty cool staying inside, doing whatever you wanted to do at any time. But after the first week, it slowly became boring and it is becoming more and more boring as days pass. A negative thing is that you cant go out and meet your friends and talk to them as you would do daily. After some hours you will get bored and just try and find something to spend your time on. Also, you can’t do after school activities as everything is closed.
The positives are that you have almost all day to do activities that you may not have time to do and you can do whatever activities you want that are not outdoors.
