Aside from the occasional zoom malfunction and the state of panic that comes with that, I think taking courses remotely has been going pretty well overall. Still, it has been strange doing no more than clicking a few buttons to go from class to class or to work; so, taking classes in-person and in physical spaces is something that I really miss. Also, I definitely had to adjust to the drastically increased reliance on technology, such as learning how to operate zoom and other online resources; it was slightly difficult to do on top of taking classes. That being said, I am glad that we have the technology to be able to take classes during a pandemic, and I have come to appreciate simply “arriving” to a class which always feels like a great success.
After college, I know for certain that I will greatly appreciate any in-person interactions that I have, and I will be far more flexible and willing to deal with obstacles that I encounter. As a final note, I don’t think I will ever forget to check my email in the future because it has been the sole form of communication for classes, assignments, and general updates for the past weeks.
