The Queen of Quarantine: Rapunzel
Rapunzel is literally the queen of quarantine, even though she’s actually a princess. She spends 18 years locked in a tower where she picks up the hobby of growing her hair. She draws, cleans, reads, bakes, climbs, paints, and sews dresses, throws darts, plays chess, makes candles, and more. The movie even features a song that is dedicated to all of the ways that she stays occupied while she’s inside – “When Will My Life Begin?” This is incredibly relatable, especially now with so many people stuck in quarantine.
Rapunzel is an Emotional Mess Once She Leaves the Tower
After Rapunzel finally decides to escape from the tower, where she’s been her entire life, she’s an emotional wreck. She goes from claiming it’s the best day ever to being depressed as she debates whether it’s a good idea to go back inside after defying orders from Mother Gothel to stay indoors.
These mood swings can come about once you emerge from a house after a long lockdown. This is something many of us are experiencing now.
