I confess I am over obsessed with Russian fire fans! If I had the money I could honestly guess that my tiny home would be filled to the brim with fire fans. I’d have LED fans, day props, more things I could spin on fire... there would be no wall space. As it stands I treat myself to a new flow arts prop on special occasions. I have a problem with collecting flowarts props but then they are my hobby.
I have been working through Covid-19 during the entire lockdown and I’m tired and stressed. At first I was very worried because I feel responsible for well everyone but also because I don’t really want to get a virus like Covid-19. I’m not vunerable but I’d just completed a winter where I’d had 5 colds/ flus due to the fact I just see a lot of people anyway and I wasn’t really happy about having to work a minimum wage job while everyone not considered a “key worker” seemed (to me at least) to complain about how bad they had it for having to stay inside. At the beginning of lockdown I’d just self isolated for 2 weeks because I’d had some kind of flu and by staying inside I’d developed the impression from the media and from Podcasts that this thing was being taken seriously and that people were social distancing.
In my immediate family I am the only one to have gone to University. It was drummed into me that I had to get a degree to achieve anything in life and when my sister decided not to follow the academic path that I did my parents were very disappointed. Years later I have not one but two degrees and something like £50,000 worth of debt to pay back should I ever start earning a reasonable amount. My sister took college qualifications where funding would now be less available to me if I wanted to change my current career choice and is on the path to a management role.
