Working from home or just at home?
I was doing college work at the beginning of lockdown, but since that came to an end in early May I’ve just been at home.

The NBA is not really on the cards, I’m afraid.

What’s the best thing about going nowhere?
Having an excuse to lie in until whenever suits.

Queuing up to get into the shops.
