Zombie apausecalypse: Day something. Mental Health

Quarentine is stressful. I’m lucky enough to be shut up in a big house with two people I get along with. Not everyone’s so lucky. Some people are cooped up in small flats with people they really dislike, or they’re alone all day every day. Both of which must be extemely lonely experiences.

Zombie Apocalypse: Day 6 Money Laundering

Yesterday I got depressed and didn’t exercise or do anything much. It was only at bedtime that I started to wonder if it wasn’t the other way around, or more likely a vicious circle.

I’ve always heard that money tends…
