it was strange to see all the people again. everyone seems to be taller. everyone came back with a tan and whiter teeth. but that’s only illusion of the contrast to their skins. most of them were shopping and tanning and going to the beaches, themes parks and went to even more shopping malls afterwards. and where do i fit again? i was glad to see my friends, though.
i’ve been given most of the textbooks. english, business, history, biology, mathematics, first lesson of chinese tomorrow. everything else will be the same. classes, lunch, classes, laughs, more classes and piles and piles of text to read and study. it feels a little different, because now we are seniors. in less than 24 months it will be all over. i’m not so sure i am looking forward to the end anymore.
it was a good first day.
