This situation we’re all in right now is, in case you hadn’t heard, unprecedented. Having this, as of yet undefined but probably long, period of time to sit around and do nothing is pretty mad and, if we can all keep our heads, it might end up being quite fruitful for those of us lucky enough to be not too badly affected. I’m hearing lots of talk these days of rest and recuperation, but to that I say: ney thanks.
Quarantine is going to change my life. I’ve just learnt so much. I’ve learnt to love and relish education and its power to broaden my mind. I’ve learnt of worlds beyond my living room through the portal of my humble laptop and I’m not quite sure the world will ever be the same to me again. In this vein I would like to share with you all just a handful of my profound recent discoveries.
