Overall, I haven't met new people, yet. Due to coronavirus stuff, I have been at home and done study things. Usually, I would like to meet and talk to new people at my workplace or even during the holiday.

I don't meet new people often because I works in a University. So, mostly I meet my friends, colleagues, and students. But sometimes when I visit to other departments, I meet new people.
