Hello to our readers out there in the world! It’s Sophia and Mallie writing the January column in Enid Monthly. We are very excited to share some things about the new year with y’all. Let’s get straight down to business.
So we all know that this last year has been really tough for a lot of people and families including ours. So we wanted to discuss why it has been hard. There are many reasons why people lost their jobs because of COVID-19 making it hard for them to support their families.
“For me this year has been tough because I didn’t get to do all of the fun things I wanted to do like go on vacation/traveling, going to trampoline parks and things like that, I also didn’t get to go swimming that much because of COVID, but the hardest part was wearing a mask everywhere I went.” -Mallie
“For me this year has been tough mainly because of having to go virtual for school and wearing a mask everywhere, another reason is that I was really scared, because I worried about getting my grandma sick if I got the virus or if I went over to a friend’s house, I could get their family sick if I had it and had no idea I did. Some other things are also not being able to go on summer vacation or traveling. But on a positive note we got through it and are hoping that 2021 will be way better!” -Sophia
We also wanted to talk to you about some of our New Year’s Resolutions:
“My New Year’s resolutions are to make all A’s on my report cards, having the motivation to do things and not just sit and be on my phone all day, get better at tennis, eating healthier, cleaning up after myself better, and having a healthy day routine.” -Sophia
“My New Year’s resolutions are to get good grades, to get better at soccer, and pay attention more in school so I can achieve good grades.” -Mallie
For the new year, we are mainly looking forward to going on fun vacations (hopefully with each other), as well as going back to school, hopefully with no mask, and the COVID-19 virus to be gone along with 2020. Last, we are most excited to watch the New York City ball drop and as soon as it hits midnight we will call out JUMANJI to get out of the 2020 and into 2021!
We are both hoping everyone has a great 2021! Thank you for reading our January column! Email us your New Year’s resolutions at firstname.lastname@example.org! See you next month. BYEEEEEE!
