Lockdown Diaries – Al’s Blog

Here we have a blog written by one of our very own young people! Below, Al shares his experience of quarantine and what he’s been doing to pass the time.

Al here: short for Albert… I think—-

So, since the start of this new trend of our own homes potentially becoming our prison cells, I kind of decided to focus on things I love and know I could do at home.

I have a keyboard which has a couple of broken keys. (Just for the record, The low D and E!)

Anyway, music’s out of the question sadly. Other things I’ve been up to! A few weeks ago, in collaboration with a few other friends, decided to start a discord server with the aim of bringing together a safe community where people can chat and have a laugh and do fun things virtually. This ended up a success. We decided as a group to call it Eye Solation.

Since this lockdown started, I also decided to take it upon myself to try and get fit, so I’ve been using the equipment I have at home (i.e. a treadmill, an exercise bike and some free weights) alongside some simple body exercises like your basic sit ups and press-ups.

Me and my sister have also taken it upon ourselves to bake various things from time to time.

Thank you for reading my lockdown story!
