Lockdown has been a stressful time for everyone, but particularly those who struggle with their mental health. I’ve found it really hard to focus on anything and find I’m spending a lot of time just distracting myself. I find it hard to go out at the best of times, and it’s a sad fact that I’ve only left the house twice since March. It’s been a disruptive start to the school year too. Not to mention the fact that the excitement of having a junior class named after me has been severely dampened by the fact no-one is actually using it right now.
On a more positive note, first edits for my next Akea story have reached chapter five, so making reasonable progress there. And three vaccines give us hope for better things later in the year. So, in the meantime, stay positive, keep busy, and stay safe.
