LOCKDOWN FEELS LIKE... Isolation has been going good so far. I usually reside in London, but I flew back home to the Caribbean on March 15th, right before France announced quarantine. I'm conscious of the fact that my isolating conditions are somewhat a blessing in comparison to many and it feels good to be in my home island with my mom.
LOCKDOWN ACTIVITIES... I have been tanning and sleeping a lot [LOL]. I also got time to start drawing again and take photos with my film camera. I have been engaging in some very nice and constructive discussions with my mother; whom I don't get to see that often. My uni also started online classes, however, because of the time difference and the shitty internet here, it's been quite a challenge to keep up, but we
LOCKDOWN NOSTALGIA... Dinners with my friends.
THE PERFECT LOCKDOWN PARTNER... My best friends Rebecca and Kelly!
ONE UPSIDE OF LOCKDOWN... Apart from reconnecting with some of my old hobbies, I got to do some much-needed self-reflection. I feel like this situation has allowed for quite a lot of us to reflect on our lives, our habits, our society and what we take for granted. I have had some people, who are very close to me, get directly affected by the pandemic; and, apart from this whole thing bringing out the nasty in a lot of people, I think one of the worst parts in all of this is the number of people who couldn't say goodbye to there loved ones.
THE CONSTANT LOCKDOWN FEELING... Testing.
THREE PEOPLE TO ZOOM WITH... This is a tough one but to keep it interesting I would say: Prince, Franz Fanon and Denzel Washington.
LOCKDOWN... RIGHT NOW... IT'S A MOVIE... THE TITLE... Paradise Circus (or Stay the Fuck Home).
ULTIMATE LOCKDOWN F-WORD... Foreplay? [LOL]
