    Yeah a poem would be nice I'll keep an eye out for a post! I know, being alone can be a lot worse. Try to get out each day though still and call friends and family when/if you can. Are things being relaxed there now? Yeah they aren't the best! I'll let you know how I do in a couple of months lol. Aw no, that sucks for your friends! Hope they're okay.
  4. Been thinking a lot about coming to Australia for a holiday next year. Initially I wasn't planning on it and just going when we can potentially move in a few years., but nothing is certain and it's already been so long since I was last there! My partner has never been so would be good for him to see the country before anything permanent too. So we're looking at going next Easter or Summer while I'm finishing up or finished my degree. I realise travel is a no go at the moment but hoping next year will offer some opportunity to do so.

    I'm studying Nursing. My essay is a reflective piece based on an experience I've had in placement and shared with my class. Not my favourite but we did one last year so hopefully be a bit easier this time. Good for you though joining the Open Uni always good to keep your brain going and learn new things! Maybe you could post some of your creative work when it's finished and been through marking? Hope you had a good birthday! Isolation is especially bad for those living alone for sure. I hope you have a good network around you for support.

    Yeah, more worrying than in Aus for sure. Hopefully they continue to stay safe and well x

    Celebrated my birthday in lockdown this week. Got cake, flowers and balloons and we ordered takeaway and drank prosecco really missing my family though especially during times like these. Also managed to finish one of my essays so that's something! Onto the next one, this one is 4000 words, going to be painful haha.

    It's a nursing essay but based more on sociology. It's about health inequalities within different groups in society such as race, gender, disability. And we have to talk about how they cross over (intersectionality) and how we can promote health equality and health activism etc. There is also a piece of art we have to do with it to reflect. I've done the art piece and most of the essay, just need to edit/chop out bits as I'm over my word count and then reference everything properly. It's just the annoying time consuming stuff lol.

    Australia - be proud of yourselves

    Thank you for your response! And thanks to those who replied afterwards. What a terrible situation for your friends to be in! They must be kicking themselves now, but what's done is done. I guess they have to readjust to living in the UK again? Sounds like Aus has been doing good so far to control things. Hopefully your rates don't go anywhere near as high as ours. It's mad, on the 12th march, a week before lockdown, I was in London and everything was completely normal and we had barely heard any news about Covid 19. In hindsight we all should have been more concerned.

    Australia - be proud of yourselves

    Is Australia on total lockdown like the UK is? Or are people going to work and school as usual?

    How is Trump doing so far?

    I genuinely think he lacks the mental capacity to understand and make rational decisions. Just wonder what that says about the population of the US too lol. Hopefully he's not in for next 4

    Day to Day Diary of Coronavirus/Covid-19 2020

    Was back at work yesterday. The reports about lack of PPE gowns is correct, we didn't have the right ones, they were substituted for something else. The ward is short staffed meaning people couldn't take turns to wear PPE and then have a few hours rest (which is what you're meant to do). Grandparents are fully recovered and bouncing around again. Still not sleeping great, still struggling to get motivated to finish assignments. On the plus side it's another lovely day and going to go for a nice walk.
