This quarantine has demonstrated that my primary pre-quarantine hobbies were eating restaurant food and touching my face.

One thing I’ve learnt during lockdown is that my top three hobbies are drinking flat whites at coffee shops, going to nonessential businesses and touching my face. I will be doing these three things, maybe all simultaneously, as soon I’m allowed to.
