A state of emergency
Attention needed immediately
Late to react resulted in the death of many
Can you live with yourself?
Don’t tell me life’s a game of chess
That you were merely playing your role
Did your moral compass disappear?
Or did you trade your humility for wealth
And then state to the public it was a lapse in judgement
Corrupted by the 1% with their taste for the finer things
But it was a decision you made
You chose to ignore or perhaps it was your plan all along
That was until you were the one lying on a hospital bed
Recovered yet the plan still goes ahead
Your strategies amuse me
Weren’t you once locked in a fridge?
Or was that something we were meant to forget?
Lockdown has allowed us to slow down, reflect and given us the ability to tackle our project list. There might be things we’re missing, our favourite restaurant, being in the company of friends or attending an event. The more we linger on these thoughts, negativity will arise. Instead, adapt and find a routine that works for you. The things you’re missing can see be enjoyed, only through different means. Try making your favourite dish at home, video call your friends or attend an event online. Attempting to be optimistic and use my time efficiently. I decided to share a few things I’ve been doing during lockdown through a game of Would You Rather.
Would you rather go to a restaurant or enjoy home cooking?
How could I say no to a restaurant? It’s a whole vibe that begins with getting dressed, looking my best, all to catch up with friends. Lockdown has given the gift of time that I decided to dabble in the culinary arts. Jump on the wave, challenge yourself in the kitchen. Beginner or deemed a Michelin chef, there’s always something to master. Try a new recipe, bake your own snacks or experiment fusing two cuisines together – the possibilities are endless.
Would you rather take street style photography or self-portraits?
It’s interesting becoming my own muse, a subject I know well, yet photograph less often. Although I’m enjoying self-portraits, street style photography still ignites a fire within. Walking the streets of London, discovering hidden gems in beautifully crafted gowns, all captured on a DSLR. The tables have turned, roles reversed. Lockdown has encouraged me to experiment with creativity, lighting and shadows. Artistic lockdown photo series pending,
Would you travel abroad or enjoy a staycation?
I find it refreshing to travel, to experience another culture but 2020 had other plans. This year is looking like a staycation, perhaps a spa retreat as we all deserve a little pampering. During lockdown, I’ve been spending time on my skincare and beauty but a spa experience just hits different. If you’ve travelled around the UK, what city (or spa) did you enjoy the most?
Would you rather go to the cinema or Netflix party instead?
As long as I’m enjoying the movie, the location doesn’t bother me. If I had to choose though, I’d say Netflix party, as it’s much more convenient. My plans tend to become spontaneous after going to the cinema. Sometimes I end up in a restaurant, other times a bar. Is this just me and my friends, or can you relate?
