Day 031

I stayed up late in the night from the previous day catching up on recent news and new research. Couldn't lock myself out of the news completely and new information flooding my newsfeed. Perhaps I would make a better journalist, only if my confidence in writing would be higher, than a researcher or student as swimming through the chaos seems…

COVID-19 vs. ‘Spanish Flu’

On Sunday, 19th April 2020 appeared an article in The Sunday Times titled Coronavirus: 38 days when Britain sleepwalked into disaster. The article is very good and paints a full picture of the UK preparation to the unfolding pandemic. It has a couple of flaws, but overall it is an excellent piece of journalism. Nevertheless, it would not get such…

START IT UP

The COVID-19 pandemic is being fought around the world while the economy is currently in a palliative care unit. It is hard to determine when we can return to normal, but it largely depends on steps we are taking now to warrant such a return. We need a plan that can be communicated clearly to the public. So, can we…

Today we participate in 50th…

Day 029

Today's day was much more chaotic I would like it to be. I woke up late and spent some time with the little one picking up on some school stuff. I have managed to do some reading but it was below the threshold I wanted to reach. Oil continued to fall on all futures. Including the June contracts. If there…

Day 028

I woke up earlier today, started the day with writing and then spend time with my daughter to follow the syllabus of her formal education... There's not much there really. It has been requested to download the application 'Class Dojo' and most of the communication and learning material will appear there. Great I thought, especially that I was looking forward…

Day 027

I slept between 5 and 6 hours today. Still managed to wake up around 8 am. My first thought in the morning is 'black coffee'. This is one routine I never skip, never alter. Until I have my morning coffee nothing else exists, nothing else matters. The world, even life is on pause. I've read a few articles, had then…

Day 026

Yesterday was a pretty boring day. I have spent it on reading and chilling. Didn't even go for a walk. I did some exercises at home towards the end of the day once the little one was in bed. I have read an article in The Guardian which nicely corresponds with what I wrote yesterday in regard to labour needed…

Day 025

I think I have slept 9 hours today. Woke up 10.10 and had a 5k run planned to go ahead at 10.30 am. Quick coffee to wake myself up, few squats and off I go. Better, 2 minutes improvement on the last week 5k. Moving on, my daughter's bike has arrived. True, a little bit odd to order a bicycle…

Day 024

So it has been confirmed what I think everyone has already expected. We sit and wait for another three weeks. The exponential growth continues, yet we are lead to believe it flattens. Don't get me wrong I am not implying that they are lying, because they are not. They are based on their own figures which I do understand are…
