Weeknote 44 (2020)

๐Ÿ˜” Kicked in the nuts, again. The Catalan government has imposed new restrictions as of today. Amongst others, they’ve closed off all the sports facilities because they don’t deem them to be a “first necessity”. Thus, our school had to close its doors for at least the next fifteen days. We’re powerless. Powerless against politicians […]

๐Ÿ– Vacations, here we go. Finally. After having to cancel my South Korean plans back in April (of which I’m still emotionally recovering) today, end of business, I’ll start my deserved three-week vacation. No flying, not traveling afar. COVID-19 has other plans for us this year. Spain’s situation is not yet under control and Barcelona […]

Weeknote 29 (2020)

I wish I didn’t have to rant but you know how most people areโ€ฆ a bunch of ***holes ๐Ÿ˜ก Some are so dense they’re only capable of caring about themselves, and their comfort. Selfish and unconscious, incapable of living in society. Incapable of feeling empathy for the person next to them. Barcelona is about to […]

Weeknote 20 (2020)

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ This week has come and gone very fast. So fast I forgot to write my weeknotes until Friday. For your information, Barcelona’s situation hasn’t changed much in a week. Still in lockdown without an end near โ˜น๏ธ ๐ŸŽฎ Pokemon for Game Boy Advance This week I was playing Pokemon Emerald in a Game Boy […]

Weeknote 19 (2020)

Since the lockdown has somewhat been lifted in Spain and we can start going out (for sports or walking) 1 hour a day, I would stop with myย Isolation posts series. We are still a long way before we can go out at any time just for the sake of it and not for going to […]

Isolation, day 49

๐Ÿ”“ Unlocking the lockdown When the government gave the green light last Sunday to have a parent (1 not 2) have a 60 minutes walk with up to 3 children the streets of Barcelona were flooded with families breaking the guidelines. Entire families, not wearing masks and people sitting on the sun under the minimum […]

Isolation, day 42

๐Ÿ  ๐Ÿ”’ Most of us are very well prepared for this. Prepared to to live through this unprecedented lockdown most of us had never experienced before. This tweet made me saw it from a different perspective, no doubt. First, because the USA will never cease to amaze me, and second because there has been and […]

Isolation, day 35

๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฐ Easter break This week was a little bit easier. Shorter. Here in Barcelona we had last Friday off all the way to Monday included. Four full days of vacation ๐ŸŒด A total shame we could not go out, the weather was fantastic โ˜€๏ธ So this week has been shorter, which has made surviving it […]

Isolation, day 28

I’m about to lose my concept of time and space ๐Ÿคช The worst thing is I feel it’s going to be another month at least stuck at home. I don’t know, nobody knows. I have been twenty-eight days with minimum contact with the outside world other than breathing some fresh air in the balcony. Cool […]

Isolation, day 21

Not sure if I’m passed the point where the isolation has challenged me. I have found my routines and even though it sucks I think we’ll push through. ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป Working I’m lucky enough to still be working, remotely. I’m grateful for that and it takes me eight hours a day, so that’s already a big […]
