It all started in grade 4 in March when we moved online, I was doing pretty good in school but then we moved online. At first online was okay because I barely had any work to do. But when we started to do google meet. It was getting really stressful in my house because I could hear my brother talking with his class and we were complaining because my house wasn’t that big. My mom was getting really stressed and wanted to fix our basement and take down a wall or move to a new house, but my dad didn’t want to take down the wall, so he called a guy who fixes basements but he said that it cost too much so we started looking for a new house. We finally found one after a while and we were all excited, so we made an offer and we got it, so we sold our old house and moved into the new one, and it was much better because we couldn’t hear each other. Even though this pandemic was difficult, it taught me that sometimes instead of complaining we should try to find a better solution.
