I had some plans for things to write about today, but I’m going to the dentist tomorrow and I’m hella nervous for that as usual, so instead I’ll just write about something fun. More serious off-topic posts are definitely in the pipeline though. Meanwhile, let’s talk about amusement parks.
In the Netherlands we have an amusement park called de Efteling. It’s got a fairy tale kind of vibe to it and it has some rides and some parts to just walk through. In winter there’s fake snow (or real snow, global warming please give us some real snow), and it’s just good fun with the whole family. A few years in a row, before covid, myself and a few friends from uni would go there for a day and just hang out and ride some roller coasters. During covid we obviously didn’t do so, but since we’re all fully vaccinated, a lot of the measures are gone, and someday our lives need to go back to normal, we’re planning to soon go again. And I’m nervous.
Maybe it’s because I still haven’t had covid yet, or it’s because I’m no longer used to social interactions, but I’m really worried about going to this place again. I think this might be a thing for a lot of people, having to recalibrate to society and get used to life again. I know that some people still went out during covid or regularly met up with friends, and although I’ve met up with my friends a couple times, especially later on during the pandemic, it has been at a minimum because we were all trying to stay as safe as possible.
But now we’re going more or less back to normal. I hope everything goes well and no one get sick. We should all be okay but it’s still a strange idea to go to an amusement park while this virus is still out there. A part of me still thinks its irresponsible, and that might be true, but I also feel like if this goes on for much longer I’ll completely lose the ability to communicate with other people.
I don’t know, maybe I think too much about things. I definitely think too much about things. Dentist tomorrow and afterwards I still need to write tomorrow’s post. I’m a bit behind, but I’m also five days away from a two week vacation, so if I can keep up with writing for a little bit longer I can finally get ahead of schedule. There’s a first time for everything right? Thanks for reading this mess, hoping to improve the quality soon. Have a good evening!
