A year of pandemic life


/ˈɪzəˌbɛl/ pink 5

It's been a year since our lives have slowly changed to adapt to the pandemic situation. How have all of you been coping? Have you gone back to the "old" normal?

ps. It's Ysabel Day for those who still remember, haha, so I figured I dropped by before Hybrix aka Mirage's reminder. :D


Embrace the Suck
I don’t think it will ever go back to the old normal. I do civil defense, that is I am hired by insurance companies to represent their insureds that have been sued. I used to do a lot of traveling. I would put anywhere between 15,000-20,000 miles a year on my truck. In the last year, I’ve put 9,000 miles on it. Everything is being done over zoom, and I think that’s here to stay. It’s quick, easy, and cheap. I don’t have to travel 2 hours for a deposition anymore.

Personally I like it. I don’t like people close to me to begin with, I hate people invading my space. I like my space when I go out. I also do a lot more curbside.

One way I have been coping during these times is with hobbies, such as walking around my neighborhood, listening to music, and calling sports radio stations and giving my opinions about the New England Patriots over the air as a caller.

These hobbies help take my mind off of the corona virus.
