This week’s prefect topic is about staying entertained during Lockdown
By Mozamel S, School Prefect
During lockdown we weren’t allowed to leave our homes for five months due to COVID-19. It was bound to become exhausting and tiresome, doing nothing at home, and it was made even worse by the fact you could not see your friends to pass those dull, mundane hours quicker. So, I thought, how could I get myself out of this situation – I needed to make this time stimulating and memorable to avoid feeling anxious.
My salvation turned out to be a classic: Netflix. When one world becomes uneventful and spiritless, why not escape into another? Into a more exciting, diverting world? Netflix is a video streaming service, famous worldwide for the wide range of films and TV programmes it offers on subscription. Trust me when I say it’s worth it!
During lockdown, watching films and TV series was my saving grace. There are so many films out there to choose from; it would suit everyone’s diverse tastes. My personal favourites, which I would highly recommend, included:
-The Vampire Diaries
-Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Netflix was my coping mechanism. It gave me the space to switch off from the stress of the pandemic and to be sucked into an exciting world of fiction and adventure. What is your way of coping?
