Mandatory Food-Related Post

We’ve hit that point. You know, that point of the lock-down. When it’s been going on for quite a few days, when you’ve settled into the flow of things a bit more, and when you’ve finally told that god-awful trend of getting fit and lean during this pandemic to get lost, embracing not only theContinue reading “Mandatory Food-Related Post”

On the Execution of Physical Distancing

Now we’ve collectively decided that it’s not a social distancing but a physical one only, we can start talking about how to finetune it to maximise both our safety, and the safety of everyone we come across on the streets. Cause let me tell you people, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s notContinue reading “On the Execution of Physical Distancing”

So This is Easter. And What Have I Done.

If you’re anything like me, which again, do your now-self and future-self a favour and try to run away from that possibility as hard as you can, you probably forgot both that Easter was coming, and what Easter was actually all about. For years and years, it meant a family-get-together, lots of food that wasContinue reading “So This is Easter. And What Have I Done.”

Are we Reverting back to the lifestyle of our Grandparents?

Well hello there again! This week, I’ve been asking myself one specific question, over and over again: Are we, in general, reverting back to the habits of 18th and 19th century middle- and upper-class people? Are reading and going for long walks in nature, seeking solitude and peace and quiet the new yet old pass-timesContinue reading “Are we Reverting back to the lifestyle of our Grandparents?”

I’ll come right out with it: I lied

For the past blog-updates I’ve been (at least trying to come across as) positive, enjoying this lock-down, making the most out of it, and generally not very phased by having to remain indoors. But guys and gals and non-binary pals – I’ve been struggling. Tomorrow marks the first day of week 4 of lock-down andContinue reading “I’ll come right out with it: I lied”

On the Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down

In case you had forgotten, today is Monday. Monday the 6th of April. Is it someone’s birthday today? Remember, you can’t use the excuse of “Oh sorry, I was so busy on the day I didn’t have time to congratulate you!” when you are reminded by a mutual friend three days late, this year. IContinue reading “On the Idea(l) of Self-Improvement during a World-Wide Lock-Down”

On the Importance of Self-Care

Okay so it’s been… a while. Counting down what day we are on right now really doesn’t work for me, does it work for you? If you’re feeling very bothered by this whole lock-down, going around and around inside your own room, not feeling well, finally understanding how animals at the zoo must feel –Continue reading “On the Importance of Self-Care”

Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now

Let’s get right down to business and talk about some things that will help keep your head in the right place and stop spiralling into the questions, the oh so many questions… Alright! So we’re still not feeling this whole lock-down situation all that well, are we? It’s still kind of boring, lonely, annoying, andContinue reading “Keeping Mentally (In)Sane Right Now”

In Times Like These…

In times like these, it’s easy to feel … well, nothing to be honest. Or everything, everything at once. Let’s be honest, this is all pretty overwhelming come to think of it. And frustrating and enraging at the same time. What is still allowed, what can I still do without endangering myself or others, howContinue reading “In Times Like These…”
