Everybody of us had dreams, journeys, plans and whatever, that we wanted to do here. It’s difficult to accept that a big part of them won’t happen- at least this year. The closest thing to go to Scotland is gonna be buying a can of Scottish soup from Aldi.
But well, should I feel bad about this? I could, but I don’t want to write about this. Of course, this virus destroyed a lot of plans, but for me, this virus created new opportunities; a new scenario that helped me to find the way that I wanted to follow in this project. Well, I can’t help the community, but it’s a good time to help myself.
Last month I had time to do many things… What am I gonna do when I go back to Spain? What do I want to do now? Of course, I could watch a lot of films, read a lot, write a lot… but the best thing is, that I feel more proud that I could be closer to my mates. It’s nice to find Steffi and Bianca in the house, talk with them, lose the shy mode that I had before because now they are some kind of family in this confined period. I discovered a lot about them, what they like, and we are doing a lot of things together. Maybe it’s not a big journey to London, but it’s another kind of journey.
And usually, like the sun that appears through the clouds, someone is knocking on our door… Batuhan and Laila are in the house! And when this happens, you know that this gonna be a good time to chill with your brothers and sisters. Obviously, there are also Agnes and Jacky, who I’m always happy to meet. I’ve never felt that close with people like I do now, and to be honest, in this period I could, finally, open myself up to others. Maybe it can sound like a bad excuse, I could have done this before or something along these lines. Still, at this moment, I wouldn’t change anything about what that I’m doing here. I feel happy and glad to share this project with these nice people and spend my time with them.
Perhaps this COVID-19 crisis is not the best thing that could have happened, but it opens up new, other ways to enjoy this project, it’s more familiar, and I feel happy about that.
Thank you for sharing your time with me, continue enjoying and learning. Have a nice day and take care.
