I can't tell if I'm hungry or bored - Maybe I'm both... I'm going downstairs to rummage the kitchen again for more food.
The past month has been interesting. Lots of things have happened, and situations have changed.
I'm helping my parents clear the shophouse, so maybe I'll move there when the time is right. As of now, with the whole coronavirus situation showing no signs of slowing down yet, I'd much rather stay home where I have less to worry about.
There's always two sides to a coin. Yes, the global economy is being heavily affected (and honestly, it's been hard on freelancers as well as performing artists because gigs and events are being cancelled left, right and centre) but at the same time, carbon emissions are down, there are fewer flights in the air and factories that rely largely on the burning of coal and fossil fuels are being shut down temporarily. So, I suppose, we are all being forced to do something for the fight against climate change.
Apart from the rising number of deaths and infections due to this pandemic (which is still nowhere close to the number of deaths brought on by forest fires, floods and droughts caused by global warming), I think that the coronavirus is bringing to light many socio-political issues that countries have been trying to sweep under the rug for years. Racism is one of them, inefficient healthcare systems are another, and the strength and reliability of the ties between "fellow" nations in the event of a crisis is being put to the test. Already, we're noticing that not everyone is willing to place the interests of another over themselves.
As scientists have been hinting at for years, this viral pandemic was bound to happen. It was only a matter of time. Now let's see if people are willing to step up and make similar sacrifices to fight climate change before scientists can say, "I told you so."
