Or as my teachers like to call it -exams.
But the real point isn’t about us being forced to study all July when the temperature reaches 35-40 degrees celsious and then having to go all the way to the university wearing masks and taking our exams in the labs.
The point is about the way i froze the first time i had to do it.
In reality, i really am an introvert- i love being by myself, my family and very few people i actually like. I have friends in university that i just meet there or we hang out in our free time.
The first day of my exams was about after 3.5 months of staying at home with my family, and then having to go away from them and go to my own house.
But that shock.
I was in the hallway, i could see my best friend, we had been talking all this time. But i couldn’t run and hug her. That’s how i had imagined it. And yet i felt so enstraged. I couldn’t believe it. I mean- was i always like this?
No, i wasn’t. But look what quarantining had done to me. I wasn’t really talking that day. I saw a lot of people, i waved, said hello, gave awkward hugs and then i just wanted time to go away so fast so i could go home and be alone.
And when i went, i tought about it a lot.
The first days were all a little hard. But i got used it. I got a little better at communication and letting all this people in again. But i can’t forget this feeling. How no one seemed the same way after.
After the quarantine
After the big break from what all of us thought was normal.
