i usually like staying home and doing whatever, but uh not anymore. my mom works for schools so now that theres no schools, shes home with me when dad is at work, so i cant sing karaoke like i would if i were truly home alone
i've gotten bored staying at home on my laptop, watching youtube, lurking on twitter, writing stories (or more like trying to write my novel but eh its too hard right now). and i took a huge break from playing on my 3DS.
and i ran out of pages of my sketchbook so i cant really draw as much as i used to.

I've pretty much been entirely home (I left my apartment and came home to be with my family about 2 months ago) except for occasionally going out to take a walk somewhere if the weather is nice. My dad does almost all the grocery shopping and stuff like that. I get restless if I go for even a few days without leaving the house, so being stuck here for this long is definitely way past getting to me at this point. And it doesn't really help that my two favorite activities are choir and going to live theatre and needless to say, neither of those are happening right now, and it'll probably be a while before they do... I'm doing this online singing class that my former voice teacher is leading, which is fun, but I really miss actual choir in person... Plus I had been volunteering for our local theatre group but our show is now postponed till fall. It was really sad for everything to just end so suddenly especially considering the last time I was there I just assumed I was gonna be back the week after...
I've been baking a fair amount, making some crafts, reading some, and watching a lot of movies/musicals online. My birthday was yesterday and my family watched a live streamed performance of Fun Home (one of my favorite musicals) from a few years ago. My hope is I'll be heading back to my apartment in the not too distant future (that's in Vermont, I'm currently in NY but not NYC) and it seems like things are improving faster in VT than NY with regards to stuff reopening and stuff. Supposedly the after school where I recently started working is gonna run their summer camp, so I may be working there. But honestly it wouldn't surprise me if that gets cancelled - they're allowing childcare centers to reopen on June 1st but schools aren't opening till fall, and people are saying that if it's not safe for schools, it's not safe for childcare centers. But we'll see...
As bored as I am stuck at home, the more people stay home now, the sooner this can all improve, and the sooner Broadway can reopen and I can get to Hadestown like I was supposed to 6 weeks ago...
Same as what I was doing before covid-19 but I'm not able to go out on the weekends like I used to. Still taking college classes and doing things on here. My sibling is also back from culinary school because coronavirus so they've been baking weekly. I'm eating too many desserts but... that's okay for now.
i'm a working man. fast food and ice cream baby. been doing that, training horses and learning to jump them better. gonna dye my hair green this weekend, which was supposed to be for a green day concert in august but now that it's postponed to next year i'm doing it for fun.
Playing a lot of games. I was chosen as a closed beta tester right before this started for two different games actually, so I have tried to focus on those since the feedback is important. I've also been just generally tinkering with modding bethesda games as usual. Also been getting back into rping again after years of not doing it, as well as drawing and writing. Gotta flex those creative muscles, you know?

my life hasn't changed. none of my college friends live in my hometown, so i'm used to going long stretches of breaks without much socialization. i work, so i do get out of the house. i just finished my semester and i'm about to start a two-week intensive to get a core req class out of the way.
in this little break between the two, i've been cooking. today alone i made homemade pierogi and strawberry pie.
i'm really ready for the swing halls to open up again. my bf is making the trek from halfway across the country to come see me at the end of the month. glad my state is opening up, things are starting to go back to normal here; i've been watching traffic pick up steadily over the past few weeks when i'm delivering for work.

My life is the same - I go to work and I go home, and that's really it.
Lately I've been fighting with the repair shop that has my lawn mower (and has now had it for 6 WEEKS!) to get them to just fix the one piece that's broken and get it back to me, because having to pay someone to mow my grass is expensive. The repair shop guy keeps lying to me, but even when I went up there this past morning to confront him face to face (since he won't answer calls or texts) I'm still to polite to call him on his lies. I'm just hoping if I keep contacting him once a week he'll eventually get sick of me and just fix it.
At home since my shows are all cancelled for the time being, I have been going through and re-photographing my Warriors collection to eventually post on here (it's been about 2 years since I last did that).
I also have a VERY important ebay auction that ends this morning that I'm going to be really upset about if I don't win it.

still working, more than before
tbh i never really left the house - very rarely, but now that i cant, its hitting hard because those few times that i did really made a difference
used to be able to go out running and stuff but i haven't been able to bc now that everyones home and walking all over the place, the streets are crowded and people around gives me anxiety not to mention bc there are so many people out walking they are legit on top of each other which kinda defeats the purpose of staying home? but
Many things, really. When I have the internet, I'm doing a lot of backlog maintenance type of stuff for my server. When I don't have the internet but lots of time to kill, then I'm playing Sims or job hunting. I've been spending a good amount of time doing yard work and getting our garden ready, and that's been pretty fun but also exhausting.

well, online school was awful. i'd take next semester off if it would be another 5 months of zoom university lol
i recently started up work back at a nearby animal hospital, just as an assistant with some other college age students doing whatever they need us to do. it's full time so i'm not bored, but it can get kind of exhausting too. mostly i'm having a good time tho.
i also recently got a nintendo switch lite and animal crossing. and when the weather's nice i've been out walking in parks
Video games, art, listening to music, trying not to go stir crazy. I feel like I shouldn't complain because my circumstances are luckier than most - I could be stuck in an apartment in a big city, but I live in a rural area that's been relatively insulated from the virus and its related issues. At least I can still go out for walks without encountering mobs of people.
I desperately miss socialization, though. Like in-person human contact. I've been seeing a number of memes about introverts being completely content under lockdown and I'm over here like "ha, can't relate! Please talk to me!" *grabby hands* Ah well. First-world problems. I'll be alright.
I follow a schedule of gacha games in the morning, studying in the early to mid afternoon (I'm a college graduate but I'm refreshing on the stuff I learned in the past), and drawing in the evening and night. Lots of helping around with cooking, cleaning the house, and also reorganising my room / other rooms in the house. Gonna go back to working out too probably in between studying and drawing.
I'm forcing to keep myself busy and following a set schedule due to having some mental illnesses that lead to a mental disaster if I don't (and it already almost did earlier in the pandemic before I came up with my schedule). It's been working wonderfully so far.

mintedstar/fur: Yeah, so it should be taken care of. If anyone wants me to remove their posts, give a shout. I cleared the ones that were just the newest posts because they were more than irrelevant.
