Regarding The Great Realisation

Have you seen this video yet? It’s a poem about the world-wide pandemic, our lives and society before that, and what good could come out of this. And I can’t stop watching it. Seriously. I don’t know about you guys but I have spent the past two weeks feeling pretty well adjusted to this situation.Continue reading “Regarding The Great Realisation”

The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.

I might be the whitest person around here (Scottish roots show through the almost translucently fair skin, face full of freckles from 10 minutes out in the sunlight, and ginger-red hair), but I can’t be the only one celebrating the arrival of late spring and warm weather. Now of course I don’t know just howContinue reading “The Sun Is Our Friend. And Right Now, We Need Her Desperately.”

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.”

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.

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”

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…”
