Advice to underclassmen: Enjoy every day of high school and take lots of pictures to look back on. You never know when a pandemic will come and take it all away.
How have your been making the best of being quarantined? I have been focusing on having solid workouts six days a week to be in the best shape possible for cross country in the fall. I have also been learning to cook delicious meals.
