No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality.

I have officially reached the point in lockdown where I’ve began repurposing my family home as the setting for a Shirley Jackson gothic horror novel.

I hope everyone’s keeping safe. Reality feels like a surreal dystopian alternate universe right now and it’s absolutely bizarre. I am using the time to get fit, write, catch up on university work, and learn some new skills (currently, I’m speaking fluent French and teaching myself how to do the splits.) Oddly enough, I don’t think I’ve ever been this productive in my life… It only took a global pandemic happening for me to blossom into the fully functioning member of society adult that I should have already been.

books, books, and more books.

My typical reaction to literally anything happening in life ever is to make a Spotify playlist, so here’s a quarantine-themed one if anyone’s interested. Happy social distancing!
