Back and ahead
yesterday I shared a great day with a friend I know since my very first day at school. We visited our old teacher from primary school. We had so much fun together remembering things from the past. It was so cool to see that our teacher kept everything from our class: old photos, letters, poems. We read some words we wrote 8 years ago about where we see ourselves in future. It’s crazy how much things change and what stayed the same. E.g. I wrote about my dream to study and have an own car. Now here I am going to university in October and having my driving licence and kind of an own car. We also talked about what’s coming next for us and our school mates in primary school. There’s so much ahead.
Even when I’m no longer a high school student, I can’t really imagine myself being at university… yet. When I was in cinema this week, the man asked me if I’m at school so that I would have gotten my ticket for a cheaper price. I said: ‘No, unfortunately not.’. He said: ‘Not anymore?’ And I nodded. When I sat down to wait for the movie to start, I realized that he still charged the cheaper price although he knew that I’m not at school anymore. This was when I realized that 1. truth is all you need, 2. there are still friendly people in the world that understand the sorrows of students without money, 3. it’s strange to not go to school anymore, 4. i felt grown up.
So now it’s time to look ahead instead of looking back. Therefore, it’s great to have the Internet. I already stay in contact with some people who study the same or live at the same place as I will soon. I’m really looking forward to meet them all in person.
