    What's everyone been up to during this time where most, if not all of us, have been asked to stay home?

    For myself, playing games on pc, taking care of a newborn baby (thank goodness before all this started) and youtube, netflix and dramas have become my best friend.

    Oh that and taking a camera, changing it to B+W mode and taking B+W pictures. Oh and using that to learn to take videos. Gotta learn something during this time when I have lots (? or not the baby keeps me busy) of time.

    How about everyone else?

    Was gaming a bit, and planned to catch up on some dramas and shows while I was on 'on-call status' because who knew when this shit was gonna end. Got called in and worked 4 days while being 'on-call' status for 2 weeks. Then got switched back to full-time status now starting next week.

    Not sure if it's even possible but I should've relaxed even more while I had the days off lol

    Stay safe everyone!

    Not sure if that's a good or bad thing that you're back to work, especially during this time but at least you got full-time status again. Things can't be THAT busy at work though, right? Still may be time to catch up on some dramas, lol

    Sorry to hear that Ralphrepo. Hope you get well soon!
    Week 5 of lockdown for me. Only going out for quick grocery store runs and it's been pretty much sunny here this whole lockdown which is rare since we're known for rain in the spring -_-"

    Yea. At least it's job security. They still paying the other on-calls right now but if it goes on, they could stop paying them and then they have to file for unemployment.

    As front line worker, they're giving us an extra week vacation along with $2500 lump sum bonus. While I welcome the cash, I really feel for those poor souls who died and the many who lost jobs over this. The sad thing is, that it isn't really over yet and everyone is pushing to reopen. IMHO, this is going to wind up getting worse again as the eagerness to rebuild the economy may actually get more people sick.

    I work in accounting in the public sector so no break either. It's been more busy with all the extra costing/projections and planning work they have us involved in to see how we'll try and survive financially. Good job security so can't complain. I was working from home since middle of March until this past week when they wanted us to return to the office. :( I was more productive at work on my 4K TV than with just a mere 2 1080p monitors at work. Now I waste 30-40 minutes each way in a commute.

    Well, they’ve just announced a second wave so it’s seems like another lockdown is imminent ~ the shopping madness has already started.

    I’m just doing what I’ve been doing since the initial one:
    Lots of cooking (there was a few food trends that I was trying out)
    Studying different courses
    Completed a few jigsaw puzzles
    Karaoke (singing my stress and heart out haha)
    Workouts - can’t be too comfortable, no lockdown body thanks
    And ofc lots of catching up with movies and dramas :popcorn:
