- Your Sleeping pattern will cease to exist
4 AM is the new 11 PM. Sleeping before midnight is now an urban myth. You will get haunted by the Insomnia ghost and suddenly you have the urge to watch a movie, do a home manicure, go over your regrets from 2010 -2020 and watch videos of funny cats on YouTube.
2. On the other hand, you can’s stop sleeping. Waking up and every day turning out the same is getting boring real quick. Might as well lucid dream to get away from this shit.
3. “Don’t be a COVIDIODIOT” – Aka, stay indoors, stop having parties/gatherings, this is not the time to be social. So if Tyler wants to drop by the off license with 20 of his friends to pick up a multipack of Strongbow dark fruits to drink in the park together – SAY NO
4. It’s okay to feel burntout and lost right now and just wanting to crawl in your bed and play Animal Crossing and The Sims all day long. Don’t let those people who are pressuring you to upskill/apply to jobs/redecorate your house dictate your lockdown experience. Read that book you never got time to read. Play the video games gathering dust. Watch the movie.
5. I don’t know what it is but all of a sudden people are turning into Mary Berry and using this time to make all the crumbles/pies/pastries you can think of. It’s like a game of cat and mouse though everytime you go to the supermarket since flour is always missing. And toilet rolls. Which brings me to my next point.
6. Toilet paper nearly went extinct at one point. Some stupid people thought it was an apocalypse and not a pandemic and bought masses of toilet paper. You greedy fuckers there are lots of people who are struggling to find toilet paper because of you. I hope you all step on logo xoxox P.s. well done to those people who aren’t hogging toilet paper, this meme is for you!
7. Lockdown is weird. Without a purpose everyday begins to feel like Groundhog day. I can’t remember what the date is half the time. You just know this pandemic is going to be mentioned in future GCSE history exams.
One thing I have been grateful for during Lockdown has definitely been the memes and the overall humour of the situation. If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry.
What’s been the best meme you’ve seen during lockdown? Let me know x
What’s up guys?!
So my Easter holidays are starting tomorrow and I’m totally dreading it for one thing because that means intense revision and there’s no backing out of the fact that my exams are less than two months away. *hyperventilates into a cushion*
As you can see from my earlier posts, I’ve been freaking out massively about the future. From changing my course to the university I want to go to, from panicking about my grades, from fretting over my procrastination skills – nothing new there – I’ve been particularly busy. For a while, I was set on going to University of Essex as it was an average- semi decent university for someone with my grades and I was happy to aim to go there. Then something changed. I realised I didn’t want to go there. The University of Essex is only about an hour away from me (I live in East London) and I had a sudden urge to get out of London/Essex. I wanted to go to a really good uni, a – dare I say it? – a Russell Group. I know what you’re thinking. How can a C/B student get into an uni like that? The answer is: I’m not sure of it myself. My only hope is doing better than I think I’m going to do and then on results day applying to a better university than I intended to go to through Adjustment. (I shall explain the whole university and UCAS system another time to my international followers ^^)
To do this, I need to work on my grades dramatically.
So we still haven’t come to the actual reason of this blog post and why I hate the dreaded Easter holidays. Well for an expert procrastinator like myself, intensive revision for two weeks is just…mind numbingly miserable. I can’t focus very well at home and although I do go sometimes to the library to study, at times I just can’t be bothered to move from my bed. Take right now, I’m meant to be making notes on the key themes of King Lear but I actually just spent the last hour trying to finish Games of Thrones S3 (which I have been trying to do for the past six months but failing due to my extreme slowness at TV shows) and browse The Student Room for University and Freshers blogs because reading up on how fun university is gets me extremely excited as I will be going there soon so double yay. Sad right? TSR is becoming my new obsession literally.
