My Thoughts On Self Isolation and Quarantine- Part 1

Before we dive deeper into the post, let me get one thing straight: I am a full on extrovert. I thrive on social interaction. I don’t want people to talk to, I NEED them to talk to. Some people also call me a chatterbox, but I prefer extrovert😜.

When I found out self-isolation was a must in Australia, I was crushed. Crushed is an understatement. I was devastated. I was used to my daily jog with my friends, I was used to going to my friend’s house everyday. So then I thought, okay, at least we still have school to meet my friends. School was mostly okay. Yea, sure. We had staggered lunchtimes. And sure, my desk was moved like 156637385467393868 feet away from my friends to ensure we were social distancing. At least we were in the same room. Okay, we couldn’t pass notes. So what?

Then finally it came. The last day of school. Not because it was term holidays, but because of Corona. Soon, my whole life became surrounded by Corona virus. When I woke up in the morning, my dad was playing the news. Whenever I tried to talk to my friends, the only topic they were interested in:Corona Virus. 😑 It sucked. It still does.

Every single day, I woke up to the same people. My Mum, Dad and sister.(Hey Mum, Dad and sis, if you’re reading this, I love you😅). Not saying this was a bad thing necessarily. I just felt like my life lacked entertainment and adventure. I STILL feel like my life lacks entertainment and adventure. I looked at some glow-up diaries online, and decided that this was what was going to keep me busy. 8 glasses of water everyday, a jog everyday, dance practice everyday, and healthy food everyday. I honestly thought I was super good at glowing up, until I realized that I had almost 2 packets of Up and Go a day, and I was binge-watching TV. Typical me.😶

So I started this blog.

That’s all I have for Part 1! Thank you so much for reading! I know this kind of sounds like a venting session😂. See you in Part 2. Anna xx
