Has lockdown made us more sociable?

In the days before Coronavirus, social media was making me anxious, but having it was necessary for work.
Now, having it for work seems completely pointless as there is no work to be had, but now social media feels like a necessity in order to keep in touch with the world.
Whether it's Facetime, Whatsapp, Instagram or new apps like Zoom and House Party, 
Is social media under lockdown helping us to remain social? (The irony)
(House party you can play games!!)


Laughter, Love and Limbo: A Blog under lockdown.

Think Yellow
I haven't written anything in a while as I have been so busy with rehearsals for Zorro.
The start of 2020 was looking so bright. Good headspace, auditions going well, small offers coming in. After a rather stagnant 2019, I had promised myself to see the silver lining in any situation, so here goes this blog.

Strong people don't put others down. They lift them up.

This weekend has really got me thinking about the way we treat each others.
When I was doing my psychology A level, many moons ago, I learnt about a term called:

"Deindividuation" - A concept in social psychology that is generally thought of as the loss of self-awareness in groups. This is when a person doesn’t feel accountable as they are a part of a group Therefore they cannot be blamed for something as they feel there are no consequences.


Adulting: A thought...Young at heart with an old soul.

25 years apart, same attitude
I have turned into that person I never thought I would. That person who now gets more excited to go into H&M Home than H&M. That person who gets excited over a discount code for a new hoover. (If anyone has a code for a Dyson, I really need a new one). 
That person who cleans the house...FOR FUN!

I once joked that I would write a book about 
“The trials and tribulations of dating a Jewish 20 something." 
Some of my family advised against it, for fear being described as a Jewish Taylor Swift or a less chic Carrie Bradshaw.  
So here we are, I didn’t take their advice. 
A little something to introduce you into my dating world.

Tokyo: From Flu to Fierce

I was so excited to get back to Tokyo after having been there 18 months ago with Evita. There was so much of the city I wanted to revisit and explore. I was last there in July 2018 and Evita in 39 degree heat was certainly interesting. This time it was fresh and crisp and I’ve never seen so many stylish coats in my life.
