Online Academia Gothic
• It has been a month since your professors welcomed you to the first class of the year and you are now emailed the timetable for your final exams next week.
• You decide to dress up to break up the monotony of the days, so you wear your favourite outfit and even add some accessories and makeup but when you sit down for your online class, you are somehow back in your pajamas.
• There were seven meals in the fridge last Monday. You live alone. There are seven meals again this Monday. You don't remember going out of the house.
• Your professors faces look more and more robotic every class. The next time you have a one on one meeting with your tutor, their smile seems like it's been drawn on. You wonder if you saw them blink at all.
• You are put in a project group of four. You all share the same first name. You never ask for their last names. Somehow it seems like you are doing all the work even though you meet every week.
• There is only one person in all of your class that keep their video on during classes. They are always there before you join and they are still there when you leave. They never speak but they always smile. The next time you joke about them to your friend, they stare at you blankly. Now that you think about it, it always seems like they are making eye contact with you through the screen. You never bring them up again.
• You think about what to wear tomorrow and then you notice that you have been experiencing a season a day. Tomorrow is a summer day even though it's supposed to be the middle of December.
• You decide to start an assignment on Tuesday which is two days away. You procrastinate for four days. But it is still Tuesday two days from now.
• "You look so different! ", you say to a friend on video chat, commenting on their change of aesthetic. They don't know what you're talking about. When you look back on your older photos to make a point, they look the same. Why is their aesthetic different in your memory?
• You go home for the weekend after two months. Your sibling is a foot taller than you last saw them. They smile at you politely like you're a stranger. Your dog barks at you.
• You don't know when the last time you spoke aloud was. But you know you have been communicating with your flatmate. The next time they enter the kitchen you look at them and you instantly know what they're thinking. You gasp in horror at the realisation and they telepathically ask you what's wrong.
