Quarantine days. How’s that going?

The COVID 19 virus has turned the world upside down and every single country is trying to fight the pandemic. KTH being a technical institute organised a hackathon along with the Swedish government and other stakeholders to find creative solutions to help with this resistance. KTH has also shut down and turned towards online classes and exams to make sure that the students and staff are safe.

So every one of us is quarantined and isolated in our apartments. Our daily routine is waking up early and signing into our zoom account. Watching the lecture in our sleepy eyes and sometimes “accidentally” falling asleep while listening.

This is followed by working on assignments and projects. Zoom has been dominated our days since the quarantine. The project team meet over zoom and we work to meet up with our weekly deadlines.

A good day needs great food. With lots of time in hand, I have been experimenting a lot with learning Indian dishes. Most of my other lesuire would be in talking to my corridor mates, baking cakes, catching up with friends and family and rarely exercising.

The best time of the day is during the evening walks. With the spring already here and the sun back on its schedule, the Lappis beach gives a perfect space to watch the sunset.
