Time in Lockdown

“Now is the time to be productive, better yourself and put your time to good use! ” – this message seems to be one of the most prevalent throughout lockdown period.

I have personally found this focus on self-improvement pressurising and burdensome. It has been more helpful for me to spend time doing what I love – not focussing on achieving an end goal but rather, enjoying the process.

An insight into my activities during isolation:


Where words fail, music speaks 

– Hans Christian Andersen


Songs I’ve loved learning to play:

  • Mac Ayres –  Easy, Slow Down
  • Snoh Aalegra – I want you around
  • Jeremy Passion & Tori Kelly – Brokenhearted


Blossoming Spring


I have found walks in the fresh air to lift my spirits.


The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go.

– Dr.Seuss


  • Born A Crime – Trevor Noah
  • This is Going to Hurt – Adam Kay
  • Taking Up Space – Chelsea Kwakye & Ore Ogunbiyi


Study Buddy


Studying alongside a friend virtually helps me with motivation & accountability.


Language is the road map of a culture

– Rita Mae Brown 


My French Netflix recommendations:

  • Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont (The African Doctor)
  • Appelez mon Agent
  • Plan Coeur

Take time for yourself during quarantine. Whether it be pursuing neglected passions or simply resting from pressure and expectations – any activity is valuable.
