"I have asthma, which has meant that I have been especially sheltered over the past year. This has meant that i have completely lost the work-life balance that got me through first year. While i have been in touch with friends, and my department has put on social events to hang out with coursemates, i have barely met any new people, and have still been feeling unmotivated and distant from a day's work all on a laptop, and i feel like exam / summative marking should reflect this. I was made redundant in december, so i have also been struggling financially, in terms of paying for rent and necessities. I wish LSE would help those in private accommodation to get out of contracts, and for those sheltering to get food and supplies."
