Journalism student and NGO worker Jordyn Beazley is keeping a COVID diary, detailing her life as a young Australian in lockdown.


I should have finished my university assignment today. But instead I stared at the screen for a few hours and then gave up. After the initial scramble to remote learning settled, the first month of lockdown without social distractions and places to be was good for productivity.

Now, life is too shapeless and bland. Gone are the rules I had subconsciously drawn around places to help segment what needed to be done -- the office is for work, university is for study and home is for rest.
