I thought we were going to be forced to come to work during the entire quarantine, yet by the end of the day the military came and force the company to let us out with full benefits. It was like a fantasy of mine, but with less military and more angry mob.


It's only the first day and my family have prove to have a complete lack of ability to take care of themselves. Nobody ate at lunch because the women had to go out of town for the day.

Patriarchy infantilizes men

Tumblr may need to hear this but it's radical feminist spaces tend to be full of TERFs that want to kill men and all transfemme and eventually gender non-conforming people.

I don't know if Tumblr's reputation has changed much since the whole Gamergate shitshow took off. I generally only go on there for fandom and 2000s stuff I love because Tumblr's one of the few spaces which serves such; more mainstream social networks tend to flat out ignore them (there are legitimate reasons to hate the 2000s, but there are just some people who do not identify with the 2010s culturally or even like it in many ways).

What are the rules and the punishments for the lockdown there?

Edit: also, if any of you raddle people are in any kind of lockdown or curfew, what is is like, and how do you relate to it?

I'm trying to prepare ways to manage if things get that bad here.

We need to print and fill in a paper that explains what we are doing and why each time we go out. Authorised activities are:

  • sport, jogging alone basically
  • shopping for food
  • going to work

If we don't have the paper we're fined 130€. The amount fined is going up because people are ignoring the confinement laws.

Personally, due to the size of my family compared to the size of my house, I'm nearly never alone. Ironically, the confinement makes me have more social interactions than normally. It's tiring*edited for spelling

A couple of my teachers have started giving classes on discord because of the confinement. Each session is 50% class, 50% helping the less tech litterate students to log in

There's not enough space in my home, we're 8 in a 4 bedroom apartment.

What if your reason for going outside is to go to a store to buy a printer?

There aren't any punishments and rules are pretty lax, the government is hoping people will do the right thing. Mostly it is.

Transportation between city is intact, there aren't any cops or military moving around. It mostly feels like a holiday, some are taking it like one too.

If it happens like here, things will escalate fast as soon as the first cases appear. The most needed items (face masks, paracetamol, and alcohol gel ran out). An education campaign around face masks is very good, like how and when to use it. Disposable one are cheaper and it's what most people look for, but people that really need it (old, inmunodepressed, sick, etc) a reusable one would be of better use.

Edit: I've heard people are homemaking them or improvising, but I'm unsure how effective they are.

I've heard tell from my company's HR department that police are asking where people are going when they are out and about. Because a few of our workers are considered essential (we do some tech for hospitals), they are issuing the workers notes on company letterhead explaining that we are essential and thus it is ok for us to work. Otherwise, I haven't left my house sine the shelter-in-place order went out so I don't know what the reality on the street is. I have been trying to encourage my family to take walks with me outside to get some fresh air but no one is taking me up on it. I've been doing squats and pushups indoors. At some point, I want to get outside.

Feeling like this quarantine would be a great time for a regenerative shroom trip. Gotta find a dealer somehow.

I work for my state's education department, so I'm tasked with this huge lift of providing continuing education for all the students in my state. Which I have to do from home (yay) while watching and taking care of my kids (nice, but difficult). We're all safe and doing ok so far. We have some real cabin fever hitting and we're bouncing off the walls so I built some playground equipment for them to play with outside so they can burn off that energy without going to a public playground and breaking quarantine, but it's been cold and rainy all week, so if we could just get some sun, that'd be nice.

My oldest son works at Wal-Mart, so we're pretty concerned with that possible disease vector, but I also don't want to just tell him he has to quit his job. So we talked about it with him and we're kind of having ongoing discussions as to what the best course of action is, one that we may not like but that is the one we all decide is best.

With all this newfound free time I've started baking sourdough. It helps keep my mind off things.... except that 90% of baking sourdough is waiting, so then I have to find something else to keep my mind off things. In any case, the bread is pretty good.

I had this week a new job offer rescinded over the coronavirus, even though I had accepted the offer and resigned at my current company. At my current company, the ceo refused to even make me a new offer on salary due to 'concerns over the viruses impact on revenues'. The only sort of bright side here is that my boss was honestly relieved to hear that I will stay for the time being, so I'm not totally out of a job.

I think the real reason is just that his campaign don't want him to open his mouth in public because every nonsensical sentence out of his mouth is fuel Trump can use against him.

People I'm working with now were helping out with Ebola too, trying hard to make moves before things get bad. Southern Africa still hasn't blown up. But it has one of the youngest populations as well as the most immunocompromised population in the world. So our dead people will look different to everybody else's dead people.

A bit late to this but I'm going to be even less active than usual because I have to get studies sorted. It's just a rubber stamp but I would prefer a source of income for the time being. I also have a ton of personal issues I want to try and resolve as soon as I can.

I'm also so annoyed that I've missed a phone appointment for trying to get my more serious mental health issues sorted (I already attended an in-person appointment in the week before schools were announced to be shut here).

I'm trying not to let this whole quarantine thing get to me (no lockdowns are in place in the UK but I'm trying to do my bit to prevent others from being infected from the coronavirus and because I frankly have to play catch up with studies which are now all online or either retake or fail/drop out not much better or perhaps worse than I was before), but it is getting to me.
