Through these difficult times, it is important to recognize those around us for the hard work they put in and their positive impact on their communities. I sat down for a virtual interview with Lakewood High School senior, Payton Rossen. Payton is a very involved student who was nice enough to share with us some updates on her life.
Terence (Me): How have you been keeping busy during this time, what’s is your daily schedule?
Payton: I wake up at twelve, sometimes at 2, I usually play Fortnite for a while with my friends and then go back to my room and wait for dinner. To pass the time I face time with my friends a lot.
T: What has been the most difficult aspect of the pandemic?
P: Not being able to see my friends, and missing all of the exciting stuff we were promised for our hard work.
T: Anything in particular?
P: Prom and graduation are the big ones for sure, along with my senior softball season being cancelled; it is so aggravating.
T: What is something that you’ve enjoyed during quarantine?
P: Having a lot of time to myself hasn’t been the worst thing, lots of time to think and get excited for college.
T: What are you most looking forward to once this all wraps up?
P: Definitely being able to see my friends again. I miss them so much.
T: Any final thoughts?
P: No this is just ridiculous and unfair to all of the seniors.
Good to check in with one of our graduating seniors at Lakewood. Good luck to Payton and the other seniors in their future plans.
