What are your thoughts on remote learning and your experience with it? What have you liked and disliked it?

In my opinion, online/remote learning is more difficult for me than having to attend actual school. I found myself distracted by others during class sessions or I did not have any motivation to do work/learn. It did not feel normal and I felt bored out of my mind having to do it. I would much rather continue going to an actual school. I get to see my friends, feel encouraged to learn in class, and overall have a great time. There was more work than I had to do than usual, which was stressful. I had to be able to finish all my homework and tests/exams, even though I did not have any motivation. I had a point of giving up. It was also much harder for me to understand certain things because of all the distractions I had. I could not remember much from online sessions and it made me easily mess up on tests. I felt like I was doing worse and my grades were dropping rather than keeping a steady grade. I did not like much about it. Other than getting to stay home or do my own things in my free time. As well as getting to sleep in due to my class schedule. I mainly disliked this.
