To all the creative people out there; do you find it difficult to sleep at regular times since lockdown?

I felt I lost all motivation in lockdown 2.0 than 1.0. The first one I’ve decorated all my furniture, decorated my bedroom and been studying non stop. That actually helped me to get my sleep schedule back on track.

Now it’s really messed up. Like I go to bed at 5am because I think better at night than during the day. I get more creative at night than during the day and I can clean better and my head is clearer. No idea why, I’m such a night owl I like to do things better at night. But my motivation has completely gone! I meant to be studying my maths but I can’t, it’s just been really difficult.

I also forgotten to mention that in lockdown 2.0 I’ve finally painted my bathroom and got rid of all the mould (since the paint wasn’t bathroom paint and yes there’s a difference) and I’ve been slowly doing the skirting boards. But I’m just ugh with the lockdown.

I used to be in theatre a lot and that actually got me out of my flat and it got me to socialise. I feel now that’s completely gone. I miss rehearsals and I miss acting in general. Being in the theatre helped me a lot in general. I even miss doing dance classes and singing classes. I just really miss it.

Is anyone else having the same issues?

my latest story for patrons is, slightly inexplicably, a one-handed read about depression during lockdown. didn’t really intend to write it that way, but here we are.

anyway, i ended up revisiting what it felt like as it happened (i wrote out an itemised list of event and everything) and it made me realise exactly how much we went through this year ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

we really deserve a good holiday season and i hope we all get one somehow. i know it won’t be the same this year, i know the new year isn’t going to be magically better than now, i know it’s not all over - but i think symbolically it’s important to think wow, glad that part’s over and to recognise how hard it’s been.

and i hope you’re proud that you got through it, no matter how badly you judged yourself at the time.

Donald Trump, His Son And Right-Wing Commentators Are Behind The Top Facebook Pages Responsible For Spreading False Information New Study Shows⁠

Blogged by: @RaquelHarristv⁠

New research just found that the #Facebook pages responsible for spreading the most false information belong to Donald Trump, his son, and a whole bunch of right-wing idealists.⁠

A new study by global human rights group #Avaaz, which was cited by the New York Times, found that #DonaldTrump, #DonaldTrumpJr., and conservative vloggers #DiamondandSilk are the leading group of people in charge of #Facebook pages that are spewing lies about several issues including the #Covid19 #pandemic, the #2020presidentialelection and more. Business Insider reports that the top 25 Facebook pages, which were run by the men, were responsible for over 25 percent of all election-related misinformation. ⁠

Trump is the first person responsible for spreading false information, the study found. Right below him is his son, and next to Donald Trump Jr. is right-wing commentators Dan Bongino, Diamond and Silk, and Mark Levin, according to Avaaz data reported by the New York Times. Some of the lies the men have spread include claiming that the 2020 presidential election was rigged in favor of Trump’s opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. Since the election, Trump has been calling for vote recounts in various states, alleging voter fraud. No evidence has shown that voter fraud has taken place. ⁠

Biden was named the president-elect on Nov. 6, and days after that, like before, Trump began a false information campaign in an attempt to convince anyone that the election was rigged and that he was the true winner. He has even tweeted, “I won the election,” knowing good and well he didn’t, and the numbers prove it. In the meantime, social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, have been warning users of posts that contain false information. A slew of Trump’s posts bear that warning, but that hasn’t stopped misled people from resharing his posts or others…to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)⁠

Together through Pandemic

image

So, it has been a while since I have posted in here. I just wanna say that, this pandemic has taken a toll on all of us. It’s all so tiring, repetitive and energy consuming. Always on your own head, feeling stuck, and again, tiring. Everyone’s trying their best to keep their sanity. Stressed out over their source of income. Being patient with each other, well what can we do? We’re stuck with each other, and don’t get me wrong, I know that we’re lucky enough to be in this position, healthy and complete, but you know how asian family works, constant pressure, questions on why aren’t you successful like one of their relatives, brings you down, talks shit about you. But in the end of the day, we’re still a family, and we need to stick with one another.

We need to fight this pandemic altogether, no we can’t do it alone. So please please please please, wear your masks, sanitize always and social distancing. We need to sacrifice even though I know how uncomfortable it is to wear masks all the time, exhausting to wash your hands every other minute, and tempting not to hug your friends and family, but just bear in mind that eventually, we will all get through this. Together.
