Hello, I’m back! I wanted to talk a little bit about how I have liked and not liked in being in isolation. After going on our trip in 2018, I got used to not seeing anyone but my immediate family. Therefore being in isolation has not been too hard or boring for me.
What have I been doing?
While in isolation we have been living on a campsite near Ballarat, that my dad works for so I have had a lot of space to do stuff. Some things I have been doing. Are: Bike riding (Geoff has made a 3km bike track around the property along with a skills track). Also, I have been doing jobs around the camp, cooking, playing Lego, doing school work and playing music. While we have been in isolation we sold our old house, it was a big palaver but we got there in the end.
How have I been doing schooling?
I have been doing distance education. I have been really enjoying doing this type of schooling because I feel less rushed and can get my work done at my own pace and most of the time I can concentrate more. Sometimes I find it hard to motivate myself to get work done.
Have I enjoyed it?
I have quite enjoyed it. I like how we don’t have anything on the weekends so I find it more relaxing. For example, before this, we had stuff on and were not able to relax as much. But now I can relax at home and get stuff done that I have really wanted to do, like finishing a puzzle (the picture of Kata Tjuta above) and I started making a canoe paddle. (picture above)
What have I not liked?
I know this sounds weird after what I just said above, but sometimes I feel like I really want to see someone or go out somewhere. But otherwise there’s nothing else I can really think of that I have not liked
Overall I quite enjoy being at home but now the restrictions have eased it will be nice to see a few more people and to be able to go more places.
