How have your students changed this school year (compared to pre-pandemic)?

I’ve noticed that my students are EXTREMELY quiet this year. In almost every class you can hear a pin drop. I teach underclassmen high schoolers so I find it extremely odd. When I try to get them talking to me or even each other, I am met with quiet stares. I feel like they lost the ability to socialize with others and it’s the equivalent of having their cameras off but in person.

Can anyone else relate?

I've been with my boyfriend for about 2 years now. I only get to see him on the weekend because we have opposite working schedules during the week. But I've noticed his family asking him for help on stuff on the weekend and he tends to try to fit it in some way. This annoys me since he sees his family throughout the week but my only quality time is on the weekends. He also hasn't been doing anything to get him closer to his life goals because his family always asks him for his time and money....
