Title: 52 Hertz Whale – The Loneliest Whale in the World

Inspiration: The 52-hertz whale is an individual whale of unidentified species which calls at the very unusual frequency of 52 Hz. This pitch is a much higher frequency than that of the other whale species, hence its song is not heard, making it the loneliest whale in the world.

Title: How books have helped me cope through lockdown

Inspiration: Books have helped me get through lockdown as reading is a way of escapism. When you read you can escape into a book and forget about life as you get drawn into the story; by reading I can forget about lockdown and coronavirus as I’m focusing on what I’m reading.

Title: What has helped me through this lockdown

Inspiration: My family has helped me through lockdown as they always supported me along the way and during lockdown my family has helped with everything that has come my way. We are a very close family in our house and we love and support each other everyday. It has helped me as I can speak to my friends online and play games with them online. All these things have helped me through lockdown.

Title: Lockdown Diary 277

Title: My Mood Swings

Inspiration: I have had lots of ups and downs during corona and lockdown. I know others have too. I just wanted to let others know and be aware that people might be saying one thing and then feeling another in their mind. If you have any goals, keep going! You can do this! And for everyone this quote will mean a lot: “Rivers know this: there’s no hurry, we shall get there someday.”- Winne The Pooh 🙂
