A Run By School No Ones There ............................ -...... Today I decided to run to Daniels house to wish him a happy birthday, an event for both him and me. The run was much shorter then expected, only being 6.2 miles there, and with my parents refusing to let me... Continue reading

Close Encounters of The Fenn Kind Some Seemingly Random Encounters April 15th Having run for about 5 miles I ran into someone unexpected.

A Reading Experience One is Not Like the Other “So many books, so little time”- Frank Zappa I have finished one book, and have been reading two others. “Why two” you ask, because the other one frankly sucked. I journeyed through three amazing books to get there, and I am... Continue reading

Great title, it makes me want to read this. It is a good piece that explores your interaction with your brother, not about the important things, but about the mundane and average. It gives us a better picture of your relationship, and gives us an idea of what your life is like now.

Short, sweet, and self reflective. It gives me a sense of what it is like to be at home with your family. How I wish I had an Xbox right now, but sadly I seem to be the only one with a Playstation (even though it is objectively the better console, I will have a long discussion on this if you ask).

Short, and focused on what you experience yourself. You spoke your mind, and told us what was going on, and I agree with almost all of your sentiments. A good piece overall!

This is a nice piece, and expresses how I feel about running, and I had no idea you felt almost the same way. Running is a great thing, one that most people think of as a punishment, and I am glad you appreciate it. Good post that dives deep Jack!

Easter A Good Day “First we eat, then we do everything else.”-M.F.K. Fisher Easter was an interesting day. We started off with an egg hunt, and found some great chocolate eggs (and also didn't’’t find the lavender ones, which we hope my dad failed to put out, as they are... Continue reading

Great job bringing your WWFenn piece and using it for reference. You are right about how quickly everything seemed to happen, and how nothing like this has really happened before in modern times. We have to push forward through the storm, and do our best to beat it.

You make some really good points, that switching to games is so easy, that there is nothing that can be done about it. It feels equally weird what is happening with me, and it feels so off. There is nothing that can be done about it, so we might as well just keep moving.

I feel the same way. It was great at first not having to goto school, and getting the extra free-time, but when that starts to become the norm you realize you don’t get to see your friends in person anymore. It is so weird what is going on right now, but there is nothing we can do about it, so back to video games,

Reborn:Apocalypse (Book 1) Length: About 6 hours I read Reborm:Apocalypse and really enjoyed the book. I am normally very, very skeptical of LitRPG series, as they are often done poorly, having the reader imagine themselves in the place of their powerful, godlike protagonist while keeping that character as boring as...

Nate Temple Book 14 Reflection Length: About 6 hours 30 minutes I finished my book Carnage: Nate Temple series book 14. I really enjoyed this book. The author started off with a more traditional writing style, that he made work well but didn’t quite fit where he was going, but... Continue reading

Short and focused, and says your thoughts. While it is not long enough to get into anything too deeply, it gets what it wants across and doesn’t waste your time. Not a bad entry at all.

Friday, April 3rd Today it was weird. I had advisor, then I didn’t have class until 11:30, after which I was done for the day. It rained outside so I couldn’t run, and so I played video games until 8:00 pm. At 8:00 Pm I joined a FaceTime call for... Continue reading

That was pretty insightful. I read quite a lot, so I guess now I’m up for writing. It’s true that books are probably one of the most important inventions, as they allowed information to be passed on, and lessons as well. I also agree that reading is most enjoyable while not worrying about having to study it, and just enjoy reading a book. Books really are great, and most people don’t realize how much they read in one day just on the internet and in day to day life.

I have that same thought of that freedom to choose the assignment can make it much more difficult, but I also realize the opportunity I have in this. Your pice helped simplify it a bit, I just need to write about what happened, whether interesting or not (though preferably the former rather than the latter). With no real structure, I just write what I write.

I asked my Grandmother is she had ever experienced or knew of anything like this happening before, and she said “It is nothing like anything I have experienced in my life.” This really is a strange time, and will probably be something students in the future will learn about and have assignments on. You are right, memories certainly fade over time. I forget a lot of stuff, and that is only over a few years, not sixty or so. You are right in that if I want to remember, I will need to write it down. I guess I will see what happens in the coming weeks.

I agree with all of this. It is just so weird what is going on right now. My life has changed drastically. I’m trying to make the most out of it with all the time I have. The structure of my day is going to be strange, very strange. I don’t know when this will be over, but I look forward to going back to school in person, but will not squander my time right now. My sister is back from college, and I’m glad I get to spend a little extra time with her before she heads back to college, and eventually off on her own.
