Finding myself in Lockdown

by Maeva

One word. Boring. We have been in lockdown for many months now and as a child it has been very difficult. It has been hard to stay productive and to try and enjoy life just at home. I have grown lazy and not very sociable because I cannot go outside. The Government brought our hopes up by making us believe it would all be over by Christmas - which was far from the truth - and had us hoping to have some fun for the first time in a while. Then we found out that we were to be put into tier 4.

School has been been really good for the most part. I have enjoyed communicating with my friends again and learning without having to always use a laptop. Even so, getting back into the flow of things has been difficult since our school has been using a new bubble system to prevent year groups from interacting with others. Man y students have caught the virus and they make at least half the year isolate for 2 weeks. Once I had only 3 students in my french class. However deep down I know that it is not the school's fault and that they are trying their best t keep everyone safe.

I have found it difficult to cope indoors because i'm used t being outdoors and enjoying the fresh air. However studying psychology has helped me find a hobby and I have found the course really interesting. It is all about trying to understand how the brain works and why people do what they do. I have just completed a course in social psychology and wish to continue with criminal psychology. I'm not sure what I would do if I didn't find a hobby soon. I would probably be bored out of my life stuck at home endlessly.

Because Christmas is over, I am hoping that people are less likely to breach the lockdown rules and the government can lift the restrictions because I don't know how much longer I can stay at home. I was supposed to go back to school on the 5th of January but that has changed to the 11th because another student has tested positive for the virus. Things will get better soon. I hope. It has too.
