Being normal in lockdown

Hi my dear friends,

I was both stressed and delighted during lockdown. Iam working as a teacher and probably I would be happy in the case of holidays.At first we enjoyed being at home and getting relieved from examination mood. But slowly it faded and all those tensions returned..

Actually I got busy those days as my mom and dad fell ill at same period. I managed to do things with the help of my sister in laws. I realised how my parents done all household chores (taking care of poultry farm and goats) along with my one year old girl while i am away in school.

I got busy with school online classes.it was so difficult for me in the beginning..It took almost a month for me to be on track.

A great exploration in social media occured in this time. Each house consist a youtuber..sometimes two or three..even I created a blog but it was to get familiar with the blog as I can teach my students.

At first I was totally confused by these emerging lockdown stars..a lot of thoughts flashes through my mind. I felt lonely in the midst of these young creative minds.i too wished to do something ..I am interested in sewing, embroidery , painting, crocheting and painting…but couldn’t do anything…as I am a busy working mother of four children including twin..I was totally frustrated ..but one day my eye got struck on the status of my cousin saying ” it’s not productivity period,it’s normal to do nothing ..” I was happy by then…

  1. I 100% agree on this. I was off from work on furlough for a couple of months and was not productive at all! I saw people learning a new language, exercising & all this other productive stuff & I felt bad. But everyone has their ways of handling lockdown, which I have accepted 🙂
