Corona Diaries: Friends

By Liberty Inocencio
The company of other to keep me sane

Dear Lockdown, 

Ever since you have made me spend essentially all of my time inside, which is quite daunting, I have been trying to make the best out of this situation. I am still here in my apartment in Paris, living with three of my good friends. Some may assume that the act of being confined indoors for weeks on end -- and for who knows how much longer -- with the same people might drive one crazy. Although over the past week, I have become even closer with these friends, and understand that our personalities and outlook on this global situation are compatible and extremely helpful for getting through this stressful period together. Not only do we entertain each other, but all of us definitely take advantage of the fact that we are living with each other, friends, and not alone, and can depend on each other in a very healthy way, sharing our perspectives and feelings around everything that is going.
