Corona-chan seems to have affected us all at this point. For the first time in a century or more, life is just grinding to a halt; but of course, the modern era is unlike any other, and the shift that occurred in our usually hyperactive (sub)urban lives is quite possibly unique in the history of humanity.
Confinement is a very peculiar experience. Some dread the loss of social contact, while others might even go as far and call the situation comfy. We should not forget those that are currently in a very stressful situation due to this crisis, but it may be worthwhile to think about it for a bit.

How has this affected your daily life? How are you adapting (or coping, depending on how you feel about it)?
Are you picking up any new hobbies, or doubling down on existing ones?
What are you thinking about?

Work in a "critical" industry that isn't public facing and never went out much anyway so basically nothing has changed for me. Only difference occured at my weekly shop really.

Since work is the same I haven't changed my hobby habits. Though when it started I stopped running and I haven't got back to it yet to my shame.

>What are you thinking about?

I've been thinking that it feels like none of the information we get is trustworthy and there's so many different stories going around that it's just total chaos. Also the government is talking mandatory vaccinations which makes me very sus. I have no problem with vaccinations in general but I have a really bad gut feeling about this one.

One interesting thing corona has caused is 2,000-3,000 "missing" kids in my state. It's not kidnapping missing, but the fact most accessible information on if a kid exists or not is school attendance. That means any kid who misses 80%< of their classes or never bothered appearing is "missing". In all honesty they're just the parents of kids to poor to have technology, half my state is rural farm land with no internet, or to neglectful to care. People are also aware these kids exist, but they lack the paper trail that can make you say they exist with 100% certainty.
The real problem is that no one has a plan on how to contact the families of these kids in an organized way. So far it's entirely on the school to email the parents on their "missing" child.

I feel online covid classes will affect each countries educational future. If this goes on for 2-3 more years a kid could have their entire elementary/high school experience be subpar. Imagine having to teach middle schoolers who never mastered basic counting because of covid

My landlord is selling the house I'm living at and is having me leave when people tour it. Normally I wouldn't mind but because of the virus all the libraries/restaurants/ect. are closed. It's starting to get cold out so waiting somewhere outside isn't even a good option. I'm usually a pretty flexible person but this genuinely annoys me.

As an update to the majo no tabitabi thread in /otaku/ (since I don't want to derail that thread anymore), I figured out what the problem was. I'd been putting the subtitle and scale filters as two separate -vf options instead of a single list of filters, which was causing the scale filter to override the subtitles.

At this point I think I'm fed up with my school constantly asking about their students' dreams in literally everything. Weekly assignments, essays, papers, exams… since I have to lie on every single one of it.
I don't have any particular dreams, I don't even bother to. I'm just living according to where life takes me. I have goals, but not necessarily a dream, and those goals are selfish as fuck (buying a PC that's good enough to play modern games, saving up money to pay for both bills and hobbies).
It's ticking me off in the wrong way about their optimism that their students have dreams. I'm sorry, mine is crushed a long time ago, so can you stop giving your students assignments like that for, you know, a day? 'Cause it's starting to get old to repeat the same lie just to get high score credits… I enrolled to a university damn it, not some sort of motivational seminar!

Quick question are your first to second year of college? A lot of colleges do stuff like this to be a pseud filter. Kids who don't know what they want to be when they grow up and choose a degree randomly or people with no passion, but a love of money tend to be trouble for colleges. Those stupid essays are a way to nip that idea at the bud and prevent them from wasting 4 years on a degree that makes them go "I hate this".

I have the same problem too. I don't see my degree as something I should be passionate about, but as a means to an end for money. I'd be ok doing any degree if it made me money and left me enough free time for my hobbies. I've long ago accepted I'd rather daydream about what I hope in life than getting it, so I have no real dream I want to achieve. Like you I just lie when they ask the question

A bit different, but I can't take "how would you survive X", "live in x time period", or live in the wild type questions. I'm diabetic so the answer always devolves to "I would have no insulin if I were at X. I die in a week". You can't stretch that answer out into 3 paragraphs so I just forget I have diabetes and make shit up.

Where would you like to live sushi?

I would like to live in a cozy wooded area around 30 minutes away from town. I'd like a greenhouse to grow vegetables and herbs somewhere on the place too.

the inside would have to be hella comfy. Maybe a small A-frame style cabin? I'd like to have a firewood stove as well. As well as plenty of space to store my books!

What's your idea of cozy livin'?

I'd love to live secluded in the woods with a group of people. A self sustaining community that depends on each other. The homes would be small and efficient; unneeded things aren't kept and important things are packed together. Amenities would be communal, does each house really need its own kitchen? Instead food is cooked by everyone, for everyone.

The houses themselves would be build into the earth in one way. Partly because this has some advantages and partly just because I think it looks cool.

I barely buy anything that is not food, but recently I bought Burzum t-shirt - first piece of clothing in like 4 years. Mind you, I am not homeless or dirty - I just treat my stuff well and my style is eternally good.
Anyway, felt nice when I wore it, but quickly I realised that consumerism has started to corrupt me.
I tamed it, I had to stop buying pencils, rubbers, stuff for work, but it was all for my mental wellbeing. I also threw away my desk, couch and all chairs. I could gladly say that unlike filthy casuals 'things' have no impact on me.
Everything was good, 'till yesterday. I got a present.
Cyberpunk 2077 t-shirt. New, original, reserved only for developer team.

I don't really have a problem with spending money when it's abundant, but i remember sometimes during college when my family was being harsh about money so I would mostly intermitently fast and eat mostly noodles. I'd gain weight again when travelled back home so I had stored fat to lose and supplement with vitamin pills and omega 3 pills lol. In the end I used most of this money on travels to see webfriends.
Also, for months i could only take cold showers, but it was because my roommate was supposed to buy the shower and the asshole would knock the neighbors house to take hot bath there instead, e v e r y morning. It became quite a fight with time. Honestly fuck that guy, terrible and lazy swindler.

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

Exactly. I've been brainstorming for weeks now on something I can do off the computer (and outside in general), and I finally found something: playing w/ a super ball. Childish? Maybe. But if it's not hot/rainy outside, it's great cardio and a fun way to kill 30 minutes.

As I've gotten older I've gradually lost the anxiety and fear of missing out if I'm not constantly on the computer. Also got rid of browser bookmarks so I don't default to mindless browsing.

When I feel like I'm defaulting I just get up and take a walk or start sewing. I find myself wandering outside more now that I bought a camera.

I've got unlimited motivation and passion inside of me, I just feel like it's been permanently held inside of me, meaning all my motivation creates is scenarios in my head where I went through with the action. I have a lot planned but my god I can't get out of the rut that is procrastination

I used to wake up a couple of minutes before my alarm. When I then dozed off again I dreamed about getting up and starting my day. Once my alarm actually signaled me it's time to get out of bed, I had to go through all of that again, even though I thought I already had that behind me.

This taught me how to start doing things.

 No.6558

I channel that all into writing. Then, the next day, I act on my vision, having already clarified it in writing.

First comes a vague feeling.
Second comes the refinement of that feeling into a plan.
Third comes the action, bringing that plan into reality.

Sometimes I get stuck on acting. When that happens, I go back to refinement. If I get stuck on refinement, I revisit the original vague feeling.

The feeling is the why.
The plan is the how.
The action is the what.

If you feel very motivated, but you haven't decided on the direction, throw something at the wall. Keep throwing random ideas at the wall until you find one that lets you get to the next step.

I like to think of it like navigating a maze in the dark. You can only move forward until you hit a wall. Once you hit that wall, you can go back to where you started, or you can move along the wall, hoping that there will be another path that leads you where you want to go.

I was actually thinking of starting a nerd house of some sorts sometime early next year. Not nerd in the sense of vidya, anime, gaming etc, but really smart people, and creators. I figure we'll be able to come up with all kinds of cool projects, and ideas living together. And it'll force me to be less withdrawn, as it tends to happen whenever things get stagnant. I'm a bit nervous about the idea of having roommates in my first house but at least I'll be bringing in rent money.

I have read the weird stories above, and yeah. I neglect my things because I don't value them, and I don't value them because they don't have value objectively.
