Dear Miss McAuliffe,

     Someone I know needs advice about what to do when you feel like giving up and never trying! -Anonymous 

Hello friend,

I know what this feels like and I think everyone has felt this way at some point. You, or whoever needs this advice, needs to know why they shouldn’t give up: it’s okay being down sometimes, or to feel sad. When we are sad, it can make us think and reflect. You can think about what you’re grateful for, some good memories, and what you’re skilled at doing. You should never quit forever. Always remember that you should NEVER quit forever. You may be feeling down about your skills now, but use this as a time to think about how you can make things get better. Reach out to your friends and help them!


Dear Miss McAuliffe,

     Making new friends is still hard in remote and I am struggling to even contact them to talk to some friends I want to make.- Anonymous 

Hello reader,

I can definitely relate! I think in remote learning, we can make friends by chatting with a few of our classmates on Google Hangouts. Soon you will become closer as time goes on! We also bonded over calls and google meets. A little tip is, most of the 6th graders’ emails start with their first name and last names, and end with! Ask your classmates if they want to chat, or send emails, or even watch a movie together in a group on meets! You will have to be bold in order to make new friends, but I know that you will be able to do it! Good luck!
