Spread Your Story
LockDown Edition
(Life on Lockdown)
Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone is safe and doing well in these lockdown times around the globe, as some of you may know many countries are relaxing on their lockdown measures to hopefully return back to normal, during this lockdown it's been hard for everyone whilst locked at home or abroad which has brought out many systemic issues in the world too.

I would like everyone to reflect on their time under lockdown and spread your story of how lockdown has been treating you. So how was the 2020 Corona Virus Lockdown for you?

As I posted the thread, I'm also going to respond to my own question...

In a lockdown, it's been definitely a strange ordeal, being a student it's been especially a confusing time with exams, qualifications and not being able to go out. I found as a self-proclaimed anti-social person at most I would rather watch Netflix than go to a club, I would say I miss the change in environment, working, home, education; the split in these environments allows me to balance out my life, and since lockdown, I've had to bundle them all into one environment which has affected many things which I'm not going to go into complete detail into but what I will say, not having the divide is super hard for productivity for workflow and since lockdown, it went from an 89% to a solid 42%...

Anyway, so how has lockdown been for you?

I finally had an excuse to stay inside instead of being anti social lol

But yeah in the united states everywhere is starting to open up again but my family and I are still staying inside, we haven't gone outside for like 3 months. It's been pretty nice staying with my parents again after I left for college in the fall but I miss all of the stuff before the virus like going outside to eat or the movies

well the best way to describe my experience is probably that i went from wanting to be outside of the house and hanging out with friends, but now i wanna just stay home and gives me an excuse to not hang out with some of my friends. i just tell them i’m worried that corona wave 2 is coming and they believe me.

it’s gonna take me a lil to get back to that outside hangout life

With just a little over a month of total lock down here in New Zealand I can say it was weird but annoying since I was just being offered a new job before it happened but overall nothing to much changed for me at least probably cause of me being more introverted so in reality I kinda enjoyed it for the first few weeks. However days did become a little monotonous and slow after a while.

Special thanks to the population of New Zealand for actually just sticking to the lock down laws/rules because now we are CORONA FREE! :cool:And every person within our borders can roam freely without social distancing, granted we keep our borders closed and no new cases appear but it has been 24 days since our last new case and we have no active cases left so its looking pretty good!

Nice I just smoked weed the whole time and played monolith I lost 2 different jobs because of it, but doesn't affect me much, especially now that I have all my networking certifications.

Had to work overtime since day one of the lockdown due to a massive increase in workload during the crisis. So besides being more busy than usual and less people on the bus in the morning, I haven’t had any noticeable experiences. Both my parents caught it back in the beginning of may/end of April but luckily they were both fine.

bruh so like the bathrooms outside my door, right, and thats a far distance. So I, the genius I am, got a bucket, and now I just go into my bucket whenever I feel like I need to go, right. And I knocked it over one time and now there is a giant stain on my apartment carpet bro
