Not feeling too great today. Feeling cabin fever and a sense of crankiness that I can't go anywhere or do anything. Haven't done any writing. Felt too tired and listless. I don't feel like writing anything, including this blog post, however the point of this diary is to look back on the day to day under lockdown, and days like this matter.
I'm not even going to bother to post this on social media. This is just for me, and if anyone randomly stumbles onto it.
We'll see what tomorrow brings. I'm going to try and shake off the funk and get back to my novel. It is going somewhere.
I also have an online catch up with some friends, so hopefully that will help. I know I need to make more effort to book online talks with people, but even that feels too hard. It's quite a dichotomy, feeling the aching loneliness, yet too listless to do anything about it.
Lockdown is weird.
What I'm watching:
Utopia on Stan-Season 4 dropped and this show is amazing. Such a great satire about the inner workings of government. Australian comedy at its best.
I am an author, reader and teacher.
