A short video that shows the ways in which Rieger organised her activities into weekly schedules in order to maintain her singing practice as well as her social life. Part of "Learning from COVID19: Reflections on knowledge-related commons and practices of self-organization amidst COVID19."
“Since the lockdown I started doing week plans to organize my studies, more specifically my digital lessons and my practising as a singer. Those plans became essential because being home all the time it is difficult to remember appointments and especially get practising motivation. My social life I wanted to portray only by showing it through a screen, skype chats or series. My goal is to show that at the beginning this was all new and even fun. But as time goes by the desire to get back to normal and meeting friends increases. As the discipline to be good decreases. Nevertheless we should not forget how lucky the situation we are in still is.”

“Learning from COVID19: Reflections on knowledge-related commons and practices of self-organization amidst COVID19” is the result of an open call for contributions launched by School of Commons in late April 2020. Shortly after COVID19 put much of the world into lockdown, the contributions form a collection of observations and different practices of learning, self-organisation, and building community amidst a global pandemic. The submitted contributions are varied in form and content, and have not been curated in any way, instead offering space to the diverse experiences and responses of all contributors.
