College closed early for Christmas

I was in college on Monday. Term ends on Friday but we already knew we would end Tuesday because of covid. Then Monday afternoon we had the message not to come in on Tuesday. And I go to school on Wednesdays to do Maths. But Monday evening I had the message that school has closed a week early. So suddenly I am all dressed up and nowhere to go! I have had online college. And I have loads of college work to do. But yesterday I got Christmas cards and presents ready for posting. And in the afternoon I took my repeat prescription to the surgery. They had told us to do it early for Christmas. I am Type 1 diabetic. I need insulin to live! And posted everything that needed posting at Fforest post office on the way back. I even used 2nd class stamps. Never happened before. I am a last minute Christmas person!

It's all to be expected it's the new normal try and anticipate the way ahead if you can do that it'll be a lot easier.
@senghenydd Our tutors want the best for us but it's an FE college which teaches HE courses and the uni is remote and has no understanding. They only understand traditional subjects.

@LilirWyddfa I think I understand it's simply out of your hands can't do much about it other than get all the other students on the same page united you are strong anyway I have to leave SW now nice chatting to you have a nice Christmas.

Very glad you got your insulin, I meant to mention that to you - it sounds like things will get in short supply after NY. Good time to live on a farm, I suppose :)
The resistance is getting ready.

It's a weird year for sure, and yes, many schools and colleges are closing early this week.
@Adaydreambeliever Fortunately we still have lessons online.
