Summer of 2020 was probably the weirdest summer I’ve experienced. Honestly, when reflecting, I feel kind of sad. A lot of my summer felt like avoidance, pushing things later and later, running from reality. The “acceptance” of what was took longer than I expected. Consequently, I wasn’t as present in my life as I would’ve liked. A lot of experiences didn’t blossom into what I had hoped for. Yet, I know it’s never too late to give your experiences meaning. I am hoping I can continue to think back and reflect to this time. I hope I can fully realize what it meant to be a student, to be human, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are so many emotions I feel, but have yet to explore. I am slowly reaching the point where I am ready to break these feelings down and understand them. I’m excited for that.
