Hey! Hey you! Yes, you! I see you…
Do you see me? I can see you. How hard it is though and how much we are all feeling the same and how much we want some kind of normal back, but just with added hand sanitiser. It has been a tough 2 years. I remember when in March 2020 we were booking in students, excited and giddy (and that’s just us!) for summer 2020 and overnight it stopped.
‘It won’t last’ many of us thought in the early days of the Pandemic. It did last though and it is lasting and when we look back on this we will ask ‘what did you do in the Pandemic?’ because whatever it was, it wasn’t what you thought it would be.
We thought that summer 2020 would be like every other summer, filled with laughter, dreams and long evenings of summer funshine* (there’s a new word for you). we thought that summer sports would run into pizza nights in the outdoor classroom, and we thought that friendships would be made across the globe, as they are every summer, well at least for us.
But things changed. But you know what? If they changed once they will change again, they will change back to a time when we can be together, when all we have to worry about is whether we should do sports then the disco or disco then sports. And when that day comes, we will be here. You will be here and we will be together. Laughing in the funshine*
*Funshine. Abstract Noun. The happy feeling you get when you are enjoying yourself outdoors, in the fresh air, with friends.
