things lockdown taught me

May 19, 2020

PROMPT: Enumeration

9
1. It is possible to get a crush on someone via video call
2. Time is infinite and finite and relative and concrete and fast and slow and infinity uncooperative
3. There is no limit to the plans that can be made for 'When This Is All Over'
4. 9 weeks feels like a year in a day 
5. Productivity only comes knocking at 2am
6. Unlocked cage syndrome is a thing and you will start to fear the end of lock down
7. Eye contact and hugs and invisible inside jokes kept me sane in the past
8. I cannot paint
9. Some books are so familiar you can pick them up and start at any chapter, if your time is short
10. Every night you will miss everyone
11. It is easier to write bad poems than to think
12. I can ignore the news effectively
13. The reminder of death only appears once or twice a week, you have become accustomed to locking him out

    I love number three! It's hilarious! And your very genius of you for calling it out. Funny!
    I am wondering though, why is your title "21 things lockdown taught me," when in fact you listed 13?

    Number 5. is very accurate, I can't get myself to do anything productive during the day and then I lose sleep at night and it just becomes a vicious circle
