It’s been over a week now of confinement. Paris is shut down, the streets are mostly empty, and the police are on patrol making sure nobody leaves their apartments-turned-prisons.
Most people have turned to netflix and porn. Social media confirms this, but also the news. There is so much traffic across youtube and netflix that the internet infrastructure in France experienced problems. The French government asked providers to disable HD streaming — which they did. They also asked disney to delay their streaming service in France. So they did…
I can’t do this. I have too much pride and self-love. After these few weeks locked in my house, I want to show something for it at the end. I don’t understand these guys who just waste all their rare precious free time. Do you not care about your life ?
Some things I’ve been doing is trying to break out on youtube, practicing making lots of videos, and learning a fourth language. I’ve also been reading a lot and critically watching Disney feature films. It’s very fun and while I hate being alone cooped up by force with no freedom — I do appreciate the luxuries I have. There’s no shortage of anything, books to read, things to learn, internet, electric, hot water, nor food. It’s all here and really it’s just a sudden vacation. I love it. I can’t feel guilt for not going outside, because there is no choice but to stay inside.
So when you cocoon, what do you turn into after you hatch?
