What I’ve Learned Living La Vida Lockdown

Not a flattering angle, but one that sums up my life at the moment

If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. Truer words have yet to be spoken during the seemingly never-ending lockdowns the UK has been inflicted with!
As irritating as they are, I can safely say that’d I’d rather be irritated than dead. I don’t have time for that, I’ve got things to do!

I won’t pretend that it has been smooth sailing throughout, but I have managed to learn quite a lot about myself, my needs, aspirations etc during my time in government grounding.

I actually need more social interaction than I wanted to believe!

I’m not the most social of people. I’m very introverted and believe it or not, I’m a quiet person. I tended to avoid hectic places whenever possible pre-pandemic, but I’ve found that I miss people!

My only other in face conversations during this time is with Ben and the key workers I interact with during errands. I never thought I’d see the day I’d miss bumping into people I know through mutual friends, random people asking me for the time, even exchanging smiles with people I’ve accidentally made eye contact with. It’s surreal, but you never notice these things until they’ve gone.

i consume too much caffine

My diet is terrible in general, my white whale seems to be caffeinated fizzy drinks, however. Now that I have more time on my hands, I find myself reaching for Pepsi more often than I should.
I’ve cut fizzy drinks out of my diet before, but the constant fatigue I experience makes me reliant on it.

Granted, I need to find healthier alternatives and I am gradually swapping fizzy drinks with flavoured fizzy water, once I get to a better place in regards to fatigue, I’ll work on only having these types of drinks once a week, if at all.

I Want To Write More Than Ever

I’ve known this is what I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but the lockdown has just cemented that fact for me.
I know I need to get into a better routine, so I can fit my blog, ESports Wales and other plans into my days, but that’s a work in progress.

I’m going to be looking into improving my writing more and gradually branching out as a freelancer. My therapy has to come first, though. So I’ll be focusing on that, I’ll still be writing, I’ll just start focusing on writing courses after that.


Has lockdown taught you anything?
