32051: Locked within

posted on 2023-12-08, 18:39 authored by Lockdown2020 and Beyond Project

A typical day begins with waking up, not much of a change. However now I do not need an alarm, my body is free to wake up naturally without a loud perpertrating noise. I do my work when I want and how I want. I enjoy the company of myself and my family. I learn new skills and new things about myself. As a whole these kickdown days are teaching me more about the world and my life than I got to learn when I was out. This is the longest I've ever spent isolated from the world yet surprisingly (or possibly not) the most relaxed I've ever been. So like any other typical lock down day, it consists of me talking to my self, a lot. A bit like I am doing right now. But hey, it's a hell of a lot more fun than anyone else I've ever spoken to.


Message for the future

I hope my future self recognises and truly appreciates the new skills and philosophies I have learnt during this quarantine as a teenager. Sorry for not doing school work but I mean school was not open so what did you expect. Anyway hope you're having a blast and I really hope whatever you are doing you enjoy it and are happy. I look forward from hearing back from you. And remember if no one else loves you, I do.

About the picture(s)

I have not included any pictures, firstly because I was too lazy to find any. But secondly and most importantly because nothing can truly illustrate this experience. It's almost as if the lack of images explains it perfectly. Empty yet fulfilling. I can pretty much choose to do what I want with my time (except for of course go out and meet people, I am a woman of the law) and I choose not to give you an image.
