The first day of school… What a chaotic, nervous-sick feeling, joyful word! Due to the corona pandemic, I am quarantined in dormitory and half of my classmates are not even in the UK. Thanks to the technological development of world, however, the class is successfully beginning in zoom, sharing induction of school life and a little bit of warm ups. I think it is always nice to meet new people from different backgrounds and languages with completely different ideas that I’ve never had before. We don’t know each other and maybe it is hard to know someone perfectly in the meantime of our life, but it still give me a joy that there is always another chance to find something that you’ve never known. I’m very looking forward to meet them soon.
