Grayson Perry keeps popping up in my life at the moment, and I feel it’s a sign that he wants to be written about. I have just finished his biography ‘Portraits of a Young Girl’ where I completely fell in love with his complex mind, felt warmed by his journey of cross-dressing, inspired by his alter-ego Claire and ached for the hardship he endured throughout his childhood. Before reading his biography and before Lockdown 2.0, I attended Grayson Perry’s ‘Grayson Perry: The MOST Specialest Relationship’ at The Victoria Miro. I’ve always found the Victoria Miro has mystical elements — I think it’s got something to do with the high white walls and secret garden at the back that is other-worldly and full of possibilities. Perry’s thought-provoking work in this magical environment complimented each other incredibly.

Professor Quartarone is a teaching fellow at Bocconi University in Milan, where he is responsible for the course on Television and Culture in the Bachelor’s in Economics and Management for Art, Culture, and Communication (CLEACC in its Italian acronym). He also teaches similar courses in the masters. His passion for the US Elections is well-known among students, and so are the events he organizes to cover them. I first met Professor Quartarone in my second year of undergraduate, when I attended his course on Television and Culture. I was coming the year after the 2016 US Election, so I heard a lot about what he did then to cover the event. Students I talked to were, to say the least, enthusiastic about the live coverage of the debates and election night that he organized. Now, with a pandemic going on, he had to adapt to the situation. So, he decided to make a podcast rather than a live event. The show was aptly named Good Night and Good Luck, the sentence with which famous journalist Edward R. Murrow used to conclude his reportages about Senator Joseph McCarthy. The latter came to be known for his infamous hunts for communists, which resulted in atrocities such as forced confessions and one of the closest things to a police state ever experienced in the US.

As with everyone, COVID has massively impacted our lives. For me, this meant losing my job and moving back to Jersey. My last day in work was Tuesday 17th March. It is now Monday 14th September. That is a long time being out of work, and it’s been a very challenging time. Moving home brought with it added pressure as I said goodbye to my independence, my income and my friends who were in a similar position. All my friends in Jersey, have permanent full times jobs and so it has been an isolating period. It’s been challenging to keep my morale up along with a realistic and positive approach. And as the months have ticked by the mundane has started to kick in.
