I will be writing one also! These diaries don’t need to be uploaded to seesaw as these moments for you to record, if you have days where you feel worried and anxious, this may help you release your thoughts and feelings. Todays task is to find an old scrapbook/ notebook or piece of paper if you have no other and decorate the front of your diary with all the things you like. On the first page I want you to write down all the things you have done on your first week in isolation and how you have been feeling about it all.
