Corona Journal, 10 April: Day 26

11am Hm, which of my corona hobbies shall I indulge myself in today?

  • eating
  • thinking about writing my novel
  • thinking about dyeing my hair
  • thinking about doing yoga
  • furiously cleaning something (anything) as if it has personally wronged me
  • rewatching Killing Eve
  • staring out the window while at at the table
  • staring out the window while sat on the window ledge
  • staring out the window while washing up
  • staring at my budget spreadsheet
  • staring at the ceiling
  • online window shopping – adding loads of clothes to my basket but closing the tab before checkout
  • day drinking

12pm Make a list of all the food in the fridge and then order it by sell-by date so we know what we should eat first.

2pm Flatmate is sat by the window, expecting a delivery. Jumps up when the van pulls up outside, and returns with coffee beans.


3pm Have seen an NYTimes article announcing a new episode of Tiger King. Thank God because my actual life is too boring for words at the moment.

9pm Text from uncle.

9:03pm There is nothing, nothing in this world I want more than to finish writing my novel. Nothing would make me feel happier or more accomplished than completing a first draft. I am a writer goddamn it, writing is my lifeblood, it comes more easily to me than BREATHING

9:05pm But seriously though, how incredibly rude of him to suggest I actually do some writing when I haven’t even finished alphabetising the spice cupboard yet.

I hate to be this person (that’s a lie, I love the attention) but I’ve made the Corona Journal into a newsletter so you can get it emailed to you every day. Each post/email takes 1-2 minutes to read and let’s be honest, what else have you got to do right now? Also, sorry. You can subscribe here.
