The context is someone recalling memories of overseas study exchange program and graduation.
This is my own translation (probably inaccurate):
My graduation happened on 14th of February. It is now July. Do I perceive then as a holiday? No, I had the feeling like it was a fun holiday and I took it as a special year for me.
Does the を in それからを treat それから like an object? so それからを捉える means "perceiving then"?
How と particle used? I listed it's various uses in a previous post I would like if someone pointed out which category it fits in within the list. Is it used like それからを休みとは捉える?
Why is のか used? What does it mean?
Why is から used? I could only interpret in English it as "Holiday from fun" or "Because fun, holiday" which doesn't make sense.
I don't understand why 感じられていた is used. is it 感じる ---> 感じられる (passive) ---> 感じられている ---> 感じられていた continuous past passive?? Why is the continuous past passive form used, what does it mean?
What does まるっと mean?
And again, what is と捉えるのか?
Any examples used to help me understand and a piece by piece breakdown of the grammar would be greatly appreciated. I am still not too confident with a lot of grammar, and consider myself beginner. But I would really like to understand more complex sentences.
