Lockdown is doing weird things to my brain. From one week to the next I’m behaving as though my life is on pause. But of course it isn’t! At the time of writing my life is currently happening!
I don’t know what to do about this. I think it’s sensible to stay away from other people and remain relaxed about work and basically focus on Just Surviving. But the reality is that I’m not doing much apart from sleeping and eating and typing and consuming media. It’s probably fine for a bit longer but I don’t want an entire year of my life to be a fucking write-off.
Despite (or perhaps because of) the above, I ventured outside a little bit this week, including visits to London Fields yesterday and today. I don’t feel particularly comfortable out in the world but it did make me feel better to get some fresh air and sunshine when I wasn’t busy swerving to avoid strangers.
It’d probably do me good if I could work out how to relax by exactly the right amount.
Now that I have more flour, I baked a white sourdough this week.
This is the tallest loaf I’ve made so far. Pleased with that.
We watched Relic and it was great. I hope it gets wider distribution because it’s a really impressive debut with some excellent performances and memorable imagery. I can imagine why some people find it unsatisfying but I thought it conveyed exactly the right mood and ideas in an interesting way.
I keep thinking I’ll go back to Ghost of Tsushima but it hasn’t happened so far. I don’t feel any intrinsic desire to play it, although I’m also aware I haven’t got to the proper open world part yet, so it’d be a shame to slide off it completely before I even reach the good bit. Maybe I can pay someone to connect remotely and play up to that part for me. (Why are video games like this?)
