It's pretty easy to think about everything we've missed out on, but we've made good things happen too.

For me, I finished my degree and got a job that I love. In-between those two, just keeping s routine and not slipping into being nocturnal felt huge haha. What have you been able to achieve against the odds?

Got a place at university, started college, sorted out (parts) of my mental health, decorated my room a wee bit too, bought myself £70 of books in one go and loved them!

I started playing chess quite a lot during lockdown and got to around 1600 on lichess (if that means anything to anyone) by the time uni started (though I haven't had much time to play during this term). I'll probably play more over the holidays.

Sorting out my abysmal mental health was a big one! I also started an EPQ and did loads of online courses which was really useful for my ucas application

I tried to learn morse code, but that didn’t go very well.
I baked a lot and did some travel journaling though!

It's not easy to do that! It's not easy to work from home if you aren't used to it, and many people lack to self discipline to manage it. that's an accomplishment!
