So… that was a month.
I don’t really feel compelled to dwell on the situation in this post and give a full run-down of how I’ve been handling everything (badly!!), but I’m lucky to be employed and to be working from home so let’s leave it there. I hope everyone else is healthy and doing well, relatively speaking.
Highlights of my month were my birthday (I turned 28 on the 31st) being a nice, low-key day, and Project Shakespeare which I talked about here if you’re interested. Since my triumphant debut as Hippolyta I have since played Miranda in The Tempest which was a delight, and I intend to give my all to my very esteemed role as ‘First Officer’ in Twelfth Night this coming Saturday. But seriously, this is all good fun and very much keeping me sane and I would absolutely recommend arranging something like thing in your own friend groups.
Two things I’ve been doing on Twitter to hopefully help boost morale a bit are posting a photo of one of my two very photogenic cats every day, and posting a lot of nature shots from walks I’ve been taking. I’ll share some here:
