If The Inner You Is A Tired Person, You Can Relate

March 23, 2020

“One more stupid Coronavirus WhatsApp voice note and I swear I will be sick.”

I don’t know about you but I am tired. Tired of the news and social media and everywhere I turn to. I just want to sleep and wake up when all of this passes. I mean I know I complain about life all the time but ahan. Not like this. Small play.

Here is a list of all the things that have added to my already existing tiredness in these trying times:

Fake news.

Pls, this is not the time to be unfortunate. Let’s kindly be guided. Fear kills faster than any problem.

Paranoia on whether or not I washed my hands.

Did I wash my hands after touching the tap after I finished washing my hands?

Over information.

Let NCDC do their work in peace. Why are we bringing screenshots from each announcement to Whatsapp? Too much is happening too fast. Let’s slow down a bit.


Wish me luck with social distancing.


It feels like the calm before the storm because we are all imagining the worst-case scenario for us here.

PS: If the world was ending you’d come over right? right?
