Okay, I admit it, maybe going abroad during a pandemic wasn’t the smartest idea I’ve ever had.
I returned home about 2 weeks ago and all I did was lay in bed until I got hungry and spend a ridiculous amount of time on TikTok (selfish self promo: follow my friends and I @thequaranteam). It takes time to adapt to staying home by yourself, with friends, family or a partner, when you are so used to always going from one place to another and seeing a large number of people on a daily basis. Eventually, you realize you do not really have a choice and you begin to find more productive ways to pass time.
Just think about this for a second, have you ever actually seen a baby pigeon?
The coronavirus outbreak has saturated the news agenda recently and will continue to do so for quite some time. The virus is a real threat to people’s lives and as of 26 March 2020 it has killed 578 in Britain, and probably permanently damaged thousands more lungs of the survivors. The fight against the virus will be a long one, and the rhetoric surrounding it in the media has been likened to wartime.
If you’ve ever met me you’d know I’m a huge ABBA fan. I could literally talk to you about them for hours and hours and never get bored. ( No promises of not boring YOU to death.) My mother first introduced me to their music when I was 6 years old, and from then on the only sound you could hear coming from my room was them. Through thick and thin their music would be the only thing I could find solace in. Of course I’m overexaggerating but you get my point – they played a big part in my childhood which also led me to liking other 60s and 70s bands.
