Over the last year, “a day in the life” has never looked so stagnant. What was once routine has become standstill; we’ve lost the little rituals we used to take for granted. To find them again, we have to look at life a little differently. We created our ongoing series 9am to 9pm to get a glimpse into where artists find creative inspiration in their daily lives.
In this edition, we take a peek into the day-to-day life of Melbourne’s Georgia Maq. With the recent release of her new single with Alice Ivy, “Someone Stranger,” Georgia has continued to reveal how multifaceted she is beyond her work with Camp Cope. This look into a day in her life is no different. Take a walk through Georgia’s daily life as a frontline healthcare worker, as she vaccinates our community against COVID-19 and finds a way to cope through Victoria’s current outbreak.
9am. This is me in my car sitting outside work taking a selfie before a big day of vaccinating the community against Covid-19.
10am. This is what I have to wear at the moment because there’s currently an outbreak in Victoria, so it’s full PPE for me until that’s over. It involves a plastic gown, a face shield, hair net and an N95 mask. I end up smelling really bad at the end of the day because I’ve been wrapped up all day.
1pm. This is my face after about 4 hours of wearing an N95 mask. I have a gigantic Greek nose so the mask REALLY sucks on to my face and leaves me all red and raw.”
1:30pm. Yes, I’ve been vaping, give me a break. It’s stressful working in a global pandemic.
2pm. This is a beautiful dog a client bought in, he was such a good boy. Made my day.
5pm. Just a closer look at how red my nose is and exhausted I am.
5:15pm. This is the beautiful view on my afternoon run. Gyms are closed so I’ve gotta get my exercise in a different way. I’m not usually a cardio gal, I much prefer weights, but I need to do something to stay fit.
5:30pm. Nose is still horribly red from the mask.
5:45pm. Fuck this car and its driver. Think about whose land you’re on, buddy.
6:30pm. These are my cats, Spatula and Adidas. They are two little girlbosses and I love them more than anything in the world.
8pm. What better way to end a day of vaccinating in lockdown than to watch Limp Bizkit’s set at Lollapalooza 2021.. again!? Seriously, watch this set.. It changed my life.
8:30pm. I live alone so I’m allowed a bubble buddy throughout lockdown, and this is how I let them know that I’m outside their house and ready to kiss them on the lips.
