Its not like last year, he thought. Last year was awful and crazy because the pandemic messed everything up! All the businesses were closed and we could not do anything fun! We had to have school cohorts and could not be with friends. School was boring because all our friends were at home. We had to wear masks everywhere. The only good thing is we got to sleep in more and could stay up later. But this school year was better. At least I get to be with friends. I still have to wear a mask sometimes and quarantine, but its better!
