I woke up a few minutes ago. I’m sitting in my new little place, having a cup of tea, and am watching my own graduation ceremony. It’s a bit weird, to say the least.
Usually, getting ready for a graduation ceremony is a long affair. Clothes, make-up, relatives, post-parties. All that takes time and preparation. Not today.
Who has ever attended a graduation ceremony in a bathrobe? Who has ever had coffee while listening to the graduation speaker? Who has ever been several hundred miles away from graduation while being right there?
Our graduation speaker talked about the pre-corona and post-corona world. There are certain things I won’t miss – like the complete lack of concern for a public health care system. But there are also parts I will not accept.
Social distancing is slowly turning into human distancing. That’s wrong.
Congratulations to my class of 2020!
