In my third and final of study it became clear that I was not interested in pursuing a career in history, which offered the stereotypical career choices of a historian, teacher or librarian. Although, it was clear that I had an interest in current issues around the world. This ranged from politics to sport, with a particular interest in the ever-growing fight against the climate emergency. I began to think about pursuing a career in journalism and whether it suited me.
Having had a quick browse through recent blog posts, there seems to be a recurring theme. Isolation and coronovirus. Well, isolation is hella boring and coronavirus sucks. That's about all I have to say on it. Instead, whoever is fortunate enough to read this can once again be taken on an enlightening journey through my experiences as a dangerously average university rugby player. Sorry.
Okay, I admit it, maybe going abroad during a pandemic wasn’t the smartest idea I’ve ever had.
I returned home about 2 weeks ago and all I did was lay in bed until I got hungry and spend a ridiculous amount of time on TikTok (selfish self promo: follow my friends and I @thequaranteam). It takes time to adapt to staying home by yourself, with friends, family or a partner, when you are so used to always going from one place to another and seeing a large number of people on a daily basis. Eventually, you realize you do not really have a choice and you begin to find more productive ways to pass time.
