It was Friday March 15, just 3 days before my birthday, and we went virtual for school. Me and my
dad made a carrot pineapple and walnut birthday cake. My parents made me a surprise
party on Zoom. It was not my ideal birthday, but I didn’t complain. I was happy that I got a
birthday party after all. The school year was tough, but it went by in the blink of an eye.
All except using the restroom which sounds funny and it was. We ran out of toilet paper,
so we used a white elephant gift…it was Trump toilet paper. It was absolutely hilarious.
The next year was ups and downs. First an up: I got rabbits for my birthday!!

I still believe there is hope in the air.

Then one of my best friends moved away. But I still believe there is hope in the air. Most people are
vaccinated and get tested at school. I think covid is almost over.
