DAY 38-48

Updated: Aug 10, 2020

Alrighty. Well now that we are well into Level Three and are hopefully moving into Level Two in the next week, I believe this will be the last post of my isolation diary series. This means that we will be able to go back to school and socialize with friends, as long as we practice social distancing with strangers and keep a record of who we have been in contact with. I am happy to announce that New Zealand has less than three cases a day for probably the last couple of weeks, and I reckon that's pretty cool!

In terms of what I've been up to, I honestly cannot remember half of it, due to the fact that almost every day has turned into groundhog day, everything I do kinda of smooshes into the other, which I believe is the same for a lot of people.

A few of the highlights, however, was definitely seeing three of my friends for the first tie in like 7 weeks. It was also my birthday, and we expanded our 'bubble' to include my aunty and my cousins which was super cool, as it meant I could have them over for the day.

I had a few more photoshoots, and I've updated them onto my portfolio. Here's a few of my favourite photos from each:

In terms of movies, we watched an absolute classic with the cousins last night, 'Tron: Legacy,' which yes is not the original one, but is the Tron my brother and I grew up on and had an absolute obsession over as kids.

We also watched another movie, an Arnie Schwarzenegger one called The 6th Day. It's all about cloning and the rights and perspectives on it, but it's a little hard to follow at times. And you can bet there's a heap of one liners in there.

My brother has spent a lot of his time making a little pump track for his mountain bike, and it's actually really cool. The only problem is there's a huge jump in the middle, that neither me or my cousins can do, so we spent half the day yesterday building a second section with a smaller tabletop for us to use instead.

I've also been helping my Mum out with her riding, so I gave her a bit of a lesson, and got Tina going over some trotting poles with a small crossbar at the end without rushing, which was really cool, as that is a habit she's had since she arrived at our place.

I've bee doing bits of skateboarding here and there, and I know that at the start of this I said I'd like to be able to do a kickflip, but I'm a little way off that yet. I haven't been on my board for quite enough time, but I'm getting there! I can almost ollie while rolling now, and I'm sooo close to landing the shuvvits consistently which is cool. I'm happy with where I'm at and I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

Other than all that, I've mostly just been doing schoolwork, I'm a little behind which is slightly stressful, but I also don't have the brainpower at home to put my mind to work and catch up 😂. Planning to have a bit of a 'physics day' sometime in the next week and get myself back on track...

I've come quite a way since the start of this series, and I'm actually really surprised I stuck with it. I had to force myself to stop procrastinating and write this post however, even though it's most likely the last one I'm going to write in isolation. So, I hope you've enjoyed it somewhat, and I'll be able to look back in a few years and see that maybe I can be productive when I'm stuck in the same house for 50 days or so.

ANYWAY, onto the good stuff. Here's just a fat selection of memes because why not.
