What are some things that you have discovered about yourself during self quarantine


Recommended Posts

Will your personality change, the way you think, the way you will approach people, traveling on an airplane, going to parties, meetings, restaurants and etc

 

I believe that when this "Pandemic" is done, It will certainly have affected me in terms of how I was b4 w the public and how I will be then.......

 

 

Lets all discuss here.....

My life hasn't changed at all. Only thing that's changed is I'm not physically driving an hour round trip every day to/from campus.

This might be the beginning.

 

A lot of people are wondering if things will ever go back to normal the way life was. Big question remains tbh. Many people in other countries b4 the Pandemic occurred were wearing masks when venturing outside as something being not unusual and kinda like being respectful to another individual in case they had a cold, unlike in the US, we did not go by that rule, so now it just might become one here. Who knows.

My wife and I are teachers.  We have been at home since March 16th.  Our daughter is a freshman at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, about 30 miles away.  She moved home on March 18th.  My son is an 8th grader.  Our state is not on total lockdown so not much has changed.  We can still go to the grocery store, though just 1 person.  We can get food at restaurants by drive thru or pick up.  Most of the stores are open but with limited numbers.  Barbers and hair salons closing has been our biggest issue.  My wife and I do most of our school work from home, putting work on google classroom for our students.  She teaches 5th grade English, so every week they put together packets that students come to the door of the Middle School to pick up.  My son misses track and lifting for football and basketball.  My daughter is doing all of her University classes online.  Lots of good family time with meals, watching movies, or otherwise just relaxing.  We don't have it as bad as many states who can't really leave their homes.  Our parks have been swamped with people on nice days but people seem to keep the 6 foot distance.  Some wearing masks, but not many.  Our biggest issue in Nebraska seems to be at meat packing plants.  Take those stats away, and our state is at a very, very small number.

I hear ya. I usually go to my barber quite often and I gotta tell ya, its frustrating not being able to now. I guess I will have to maybe attempt my own cut or wait until the governor opens them up.

 

Now that a family gets to spend more time w each other, you will actually learn a bit more about one another. Also, more cleaning means a healthier living environment inside your home.

I learned that I get a lot less schoolwork done when I have to listen to lectures on my own time and have to do schoolwork on my own time. I'm really glad most professors have been pretty lenient - not unusual for me to submit an assignment like a week late lmao. UNL also bumped up the Pass/No pass deadline to May 29th (which is like 3 weeks after grades will be posted and the deadline is usually like mid semester). Grades for this semester also won't have any impact on scholarship/financial aid eligibility.  I also realized most of my hobbies include going out to eat or partying....so that's been a noticeable hole in my life.

Mainly minor changes for me. Last week I went to Walmart and Menards and it seemed there were about the usual amount of people shopping with maybe roughly half wearing masks. My brother and I usually give each other haircuts and In fact for a number of years I gave myself haircuts. I guess I’m pretty independent. Mainly I’m not going to any social gatherings except for immediate family. Oh, and the main and worst part is my income will likely take a big hit down the road.

Wearing masks now here in MI is mandatory. The store will not let you inside if there is not a mask around your face. I mean, things have really gotten strange, but Its all about safety.Tbh, I hate wearing them. They feel very annoying to me.

 

When is your next available appt? I need a haircut from you soon. ;)

Are you considering doing the (Crazy Cut) from your own hands. That is a big risk. I think the probability of that turning out good w me is low, so I will just wait till barber shops open up again. I just hope by then my hair is not down to my butt. :lol:

It looks like there's a bird's nest growing on my head right now. I'm considering just taking a pair of scissors and cutting an inch or so off. Barber shops are going to be a madhouse when they reopen, whenever that may be.

Even when they lift the "Stay In Order", I will not feel comfortable going to restaurants. It will take me a long time to do so. I am sure a lot of people will feel the same way.

Thank god our state let’s you do most things. Tons of people out and about. Besides restaurants closed, drive thru and take out business is booming. Went to Ace Hardware today. A few with masks but most were happy and going about their business. I didn’t really see people worrying about social distance. I sense a new level of community, at least in my town of 5000.

It'll be interesting to see the difference between states with a ton of restrictions and states with very few. Not just in a couple weeks, but a couple months as well. I'm wondering about the possibility of relaxed states getting better sooner because the virus was allowed to spread early.

All states should have strict regulations on wearing masks and keeping 6ft distance. Also, anyone walking inside a supermarket, or any type of store w/o a mask, should not be permitted to receive service from that particular store. Its all about safety. This virus is everywhere. Everyone needs to take this seriously.

I'm in the opposite camp. Let it spread around the less vulnerable population now so that we can get the country back up and running quicker.

Actually, not a bad thought. If its going to help the country get back to normal, then, absolutely.

So, its been a couple of months now folks that we have been quarantined in our beautiful homes. What have you learned about yourselves? Are you enjoying your home more? Are you gaining frustration within your own self or w your loved ones in your house? Do you actually like this quarantine and would like it to continue more? Do you feel that you are gaining depression?

 

My big question is that will we be able to enjoy the holidays normally?! They’re already saying that this virus is coming back with a vengeance in the fall. The government might have to shut everything down once again. A dangerous precedent has been set.

After seeing the impact that this shutdown had, I think people will be less likely to support another equal shutdown in the Fall.

I wonder how vacationers will be coping w this during the upcoming Summer season.

Maybe travel by car to nearby cities and call it a day?!

Nah, no worries......the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis will allow all international flights to resume to Greece starting July 1st. Now, the big question here is..."What will I decide." Will it be safe enough? I will have to go by data and science when that time comes. We will see! :blink:

I'm (still) not perfect. Nor is anyone else.

Slowing down and enjoying life is fun.

Not having anything unnecessary to do has become nice. I remembered what that felt like. I kinda like it.

I am grateful for liberty.

I was blessed and ungrateful, now I'm blessed, humbled and extremely grateful.

I love this nation and the people in it. Even in spite of our own foolishness sometimes and I always will.

God is good, always and God bless the U.S.A.

 

I still have undying hope.

Yes, they are dirty and some are too dirty. Tbh, b4 Covid hit, I remember when going to the gym and opening up a locker to put my stuff inside and could not believe my eyes. It was plain filthy. I had to look for a clean locker and good luck w that. Also, the bathrooms are gross as hell. The machines are also disgusting. For i.e., when I was headed for the treadmill to cooldown after my workout, sometimes the cup holder had pieces of old used napkins inside and sometimes I would find other stuff in there as well (so, there was noway I would put my water in there or phone), so very disappointed w that. Also, people who don't wipe down the machine once they are finished using it really pisses me off. I once got kicked out from the gym long time ago for creating a scene at some wanna be tough-guy who did not wipe down his machine. It was full of sweat. How the heck was I supposed  to workout on that afterwards. I was not going to used my towel on his sweat or wipe it down for him w a napkin.

Anyways, in conclusion, I decided during Covid lockdown, to build my own gym ( I think I mentioned it in one of my posts back in April) and be in a clean, environment while working out. I have bought a couple of machines from Amazon, which are pretty awesome. My favorite workout is pull-ups, so, that was the first one I got.  Still, have a few more to purchase and I should be all-set.

Gov. Whitmer did not move MI to phase5. We remain at 4. Makes sense since cases have risen a little. Wear masks people so that we can move forward! It is very simple!!!

Masks are now mandatory by MI-Governor, everywhere you go. Good! Mask the f-up already and lets get rid of this pandemic! Cases are spiking up again.

 

Lets see how things will be in September in regards to schooling. If we go back to phase3, then, remote learning will happen, possibly even at Ph-4. A lot of parents aren't too thrilled about sending their kids back to school in the "Fall." I don't blame them.

I made the tough decision to not go out to bars for my 21st bday. I'll still have a good time hanging out with my roommates though. Lincoln mayor has made masks mandatory starting Monday. Just wear your dang masks people, it's just a minor inconvenience. I want this gone so I can party LOL.
