Before Covid-19 I kind of open. I like to talk with new people about social problems. But now, We have to wear mask everywhere outside so I rarely meet new people. I hope covid-19 is going to be control soon.

Actually, it depends on many facts. I always meet a variety of people in school, in the gym, in the supermall or everywhere I came. But now, I am in self-isolation. So I can't meet people for such a long time.

After my graduation, I started to meet new people once in a blue moon. Most of the time, that happens either in the gym, or when I go on holiday in the airport or even after getting on the plane if I manage to start a conversation with the person sitting next to me...

I rarely meet new people, I like to stay home on the weekends, and in the week I just study very hard.
