Freedom Day

I didn’t like the trend of calling the lifting of some Covid restrictions, Freedom Day.

It seemed to conflate the Covid safety controls with war-time restrictions. And we weren’t really free anyway. Still couldn’t go into interstate and overseas, let alone leave Sydney.

But now I’ve co-opted the term for something more trivial. My freedom from work. The start of my Adult Gap Year.

The thought of not having to address artificially imposed growth targets for standardised testing, not having to deal with mental staff, not having to deal with angry/crazy parents, and not having to deal with double-speak & marketing-focused bureaucracy. Now that’s freedom.

So how long to Freedom Day?

Six weeks and four days.
