Ever since COVID started spreading, this year has not been easy for anyone. There are good and bad memories. The good memories, which we want to hold and cherish in our hearts forever. The bad memories, leaving a sour taste in our mouths. However, we must accept both the good and bad memories. We can enjoy recalling our good memories and learn lessons from our bad memories. Everyone has their own experience and here is mine:
I am from Nepal, but at a small age, I went to America. I stayed there for 5 years. Ten months ago, I returned to Nepal. I joined a school called Triyog High School. As I used to live in America, I had good English but horrible Nepali. I joined my first online classes. The first Nepali class was a disaster. Don’t even get me started on that. I failed my Nepali exam. However, I was doing good in other subjects. One day when I was in Nepali class, someone texted me. It was Sara. And the message she sent me made me want to smile. The message was, “Do you want to be friends?” I immediately said yes. And that is how I got my very first friend. In online class, I was very happy. We did project days, classes, and best of all, I scraped through my Nepali exams. Woo-hoo!
Soon, physical school started. On my first day, I was hopelessly lost. Sara thankfully helped me and I finally knew the school. We played lots of games. One day though, I and Sara had an argument. However, we made up. After a few days, we stopped physical school and switched back to online because of COVID.
That was my experience. As you may have noticed, there were lots of ups and downs. You know, I have noticed, life is like a salad, a mixture of good and bad. No life is perfect. We all have our own problems and solutions. But, accept life. Who knows, maybe one day, you’ll look back to your own memories, feeling happy about your good ones and laughing about the bad ones.
