We’ve been locked inside for much of this year. Has your typical day changed and if so, how?
Absolutely. I was always on the go before, I hardly ever spent time at home. I moved about in the city all the time and was often travelling to mainland Europe. This last year, I’ve had to grow to love my home and staying in one place. Like everyone, I’m itching to go out more, to visit more diverse places than just my local area. My studio is only a short bike ride away so it’s very convenient, but I miss a bit more adventurous distance! The lack of contact with others is also totally unusual. I’m very good at being by myself but I now think fondly of irl openings and events and social meet ups.
