Freedom

A pretty average amount of autumn sunshine for Victoria. ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ

This past weekend was probably the first weekend in a little over four years, where I didnโ€™t have any lingering work activities to do (or think about). It was really weird.

Much flowers ๐Ÿ’

I even managed to find some bread flour, so I can finally get on with my post-Ph. D baking unwind sesh. ๐Ÿž First on the menu is raisin toast with some honey and cinnamon.

But it was also the first time in quite a while where I was out socialising with people outside of my research institute, and I was struck by how much misinformation there is about COVID-19. With schools now set to close from Tuesday (and who knows what else will be decided in the next 24 hours), I hope people are wary of where they get their information from (please donโ€™t rely on anecdotes from people on social media).

These are very strange times, and many people are very scared of what might happen next. I hope that everyone, at the very least, thinks about others- the most vulnerable in their community, and willingly lend a hand to help out. I feel for those who arenโ€™t quite as mobile, who are immunocompromised, or donโ€™t have the resources to tackle this pandemic.

So long as I have internet access, Iโ€™m always happy to chat. If youโ€™re in isolation and feeling a little lonely, feel free to leave a comment, or for immediate friends, shoot me a message. With my Thesis and such done, I have more time now to actually have a social life. I might not be able to get to you in person, but Iโ€™m always happy to talk shit and send memes.
