The calm, not having to rush to and from work, to and from studies, to and from peoples homes etc.
Learning to take things slow and lead a more peaceful life.

Not over yet, but I suppose I'll miss the time I got to spend alone, which is extremely rare.

Streets being more empty, especially in London. Something I would have never even thought of witnessing, it feels so serene and otherwordly.
Air pollution levels going down too as a result.

The free time to do what I want!! I’ve learn to many useful things over lockdown - eg: I’ve done a lot of cooking and tried new recipes

Not having to take exams. Where I live, the grades from my first semester just got copied into the 2nd semester. You could only improve with additional engagement but not worsen. I will definitely miss not having too work for school.

Not having to buy a £100 travel card every month. Taking a break from the soul-crushing rush-hour is also a plus :nothing:
