Boy oh boy! Lockdown, where do I start? Once I heard we were going on lockdown I nearly had a heart attack! Never in a millions years, did I think it will get to this. My social life had completely gone out the window! .

If felt like my education and everything I loved doing was ruined! I felt as if my life was ruined. However after a while, not being allowed to go out didn’t really affect me as much as I thought it would. I realised how much I enjoyed being home than being out with my friends. I am enjoying spending quality time with my immediate family like my mother, my sister, my niece and nephew. It made me realise how much I loved spending time with them.

Other than that, I’ve been keeping myself occupied by doing my online lessons, homework or going for a jog whenever I had spare time, to keep myself fit and not go insane! I really enjoy being able to get some sun and fresh air. I’ve been doing a lot of planning of what I want to do with my life and my next steps and how I’ll achieve them. I’ve made a list on how I’ll like to see myself in the next couple years of my life. I have also been practicing for my Theory test, as I wanted to start driving as soon as I turned 17 but Covid-19 really messed up my plans.

Even though my week from Monday-Friday consists of the same things, I wouldn’t want to change it for anything. I’m actually quite scared of going out and back into the real world but that’s me. Stay safe everyone & stay home!!
