So… when I still went to school (before the pandemic, so before late February) I used to listen to chillhop/lo-fi music on the bus every day in the morning.
But now every time I listen to chillhop/lo-fi music (I do it frequently when I have to do homework) I feel a bit “nostalgic” of November/December 2019.
It’s because I miss my friends and low-key my old “routine” - especially those cold, dark winter mornings when I used to chill to lo-fi beats on my way to school. Even if I had to get up early in the morning, hurry up to catch the bus, and deal with bad weather, looking back now I’d love to do those very same things over and over again.
And yet, even if I know the reasons behind this feeling, I still feel like last year’s winter is a remote, inaccessible period to which all of my “good old” memories suddenly belong to, even if it was just a “normal” month, according to my 2019 self.
This pandemic has made me think about how we should all appreciate everyday things - and how I won’t be able to live a winter morning like in 2019 anymore for the next years.
I don’t know whether this is a temporary feeling that over time will slowly dissipate, nor do I know whether I feel nostalgic at all - I just want to go back to November so bad.
What about you?
