congratulations to aidan for winning the creative writing category as part of the 2020 time capsule competition
Life with the coronavirus isn't great
everyone is all stressed,
you have to stay two metres apart
and you start feeling depressed.
With no one to talk to, other
people start getting angry
at the tiniest of things.
But then you are allowed to go outside
for one hour and your problems dissolve
with the wind in your hair,
I go bike riding and then
come home and put the TV on for an hour.
Get carbonara or cheese toasties for dinner.
Crazy things are on the news and
I'm only 4 weeks in and I am going crazy.
