Nostalgia, fear, well wishes, and memes for students starting F2F classes

Face-to-face classes have finally returned and the kids are back to learning and interacting with their classmates physically.

Twitter users have shared different sentiments on the matter ranging from different thoughts and emotions because of the length of the lockdowns in the country and being stuck with online classes for about two years.

One user is enjoying the peace and quiet in their place of residence.

Then there’s also the torment of enduring heavy traffic on the streets.

Because it has been so long since students have set foot on campus, an array of different feelings starts to pour into them. They can either be uneasiness, excitement, sadness, or even fear. It’s normal to feel all sorts of emotions and have all these crazy thoughts when one is doing something they haven’t done in a long time.

There’s always that nostalgic feeling of finally doing something we used to again.

Although you can also get hit by the train of reality and adult life and realize that online classes have taken so many opportunities for fun and learning experiences, others just tell themselves that life goes on.

But no matter how bad things get, some people still find the enthusiasm to look at things in a brighter light…

…or in a hilarious light!

On a serious note, however, students must also not forget to stay vigilant and take care of themselves because of some unfortunate events that are happening in our society right now with all the kidnapping cases that are arising.

And especially because COVID-19 is still around the corner waiting to infect anyone, students still have to be careful.

Despite all of this and everything that’s happened in the past two years of the pandemic, students should definitely feel excited that they’re finally coming back to school for face-to-face classes and meeting their classmates, friends, and teachers once again all the while still staying safe and protecting themselves from illness.
