06:44:21@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️😊👋
07:09:58@ninaalexandra:matrix.orgNinaAlexandra So how is this social distancing treating you. For me, it's not much of a differenqe, home office is nice though. It's only a bit sad I can't go to my self help groups.
07:10:42@kunsi:franzi.businessFranziskai actually miss going to the office. staying home makes me sad
07:11:39@ij:kahakai.deijwell, for me staying at home is somewhat less stressful... I think I can cope well with that for the next 2-3 weeks... after that I think it would be good to have a little bit of social contact with my colleagues (albeit not all of them ;))
07:12:02@ij:kahakai.deijmy wife (NT) suffers way more from social isolation, though
07:14:53@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️I like working from home but usually the benefits are outweighed by the compete change in routine it causes.
07:15:25@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️So I'm enjoying the opportunity to get into a groove with an extended period of it.
07:16:43@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️One of the first things I did was book in a daily 20 minute social video call with my team, which is great because I can get social contact on my terms at a consistent time each day. 😉
07:18:06@ij:kahakai.deijI started as a 3D designer/artist (freelancer, sort of), so working at home is somewhat what I'm used to, but of course you need to be disciplined in working from home... like fixed working times, fixed breaks, not much distraction and that... in office I often get distracted by coworkers chatting loudly...
07:19:12@ij:kahakai.deij Petrichor 🌦️: 20 mins seems reasonable for me... we currently have 2x 1hrs meetings each day, which I find too long and too uninteresting
08:18:28@ninaalexandra:matrix.orgNinaAlexandra I'm happy I'm not alone at home, ever since starting Estradiol, I've had a bigger need for social contact, but being with my best friend all day seems to satisfy that need quite well.

Well, I'm with my wife, so not alone as well, but I could well be on my own without problems...

Nice! This suits me and my SO very well: we both enjoy being "alone together".

21:19:39@ninaalexandra:matrix.orgNinaAlexandra Yup, alone together, with occational talking to each other, and just not being lonely, it still works quite well. She's watching a horror movie (not my genre) on her phone right now, but we'll probably watch a movie together this weekend.

16:27:33@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️ Day 2 of the national lockdown here in the UK. How's everyone doing elsewhere in the world?

18:54:59@qy:xa0.ukqyI didn't even notice much until this week, its so eerie outside now
18:55:43@qy:xa0.ukqyI'm really hoping all this makes getting a remote job easier
19:01:17@ij:kahakai.deijI'm on vacation this week and the next for relocation... it's a little bit of a challenge to relocate in these times...
19:51:12@qy:xa0.ukqyThis is the first time ive been out substantially since the lockdowns, and I'm loving this scorched earth dystopia

I bet! Hope you can make the best of any advantages too. Emptier roads maybe?
12:11:14@ij:kahakai.deijyes... living in a touristic hot spot at the beach... village is quite empty these days, luckily... there are simply far too many people here in summer and on special events
12:11:55@ij:kahakai.deijlike, village has ~7000 inhabitants, and during events there are sometimes 200.000 visitors over here
12:13:53@ij:kahakai.deijor cruise ships in summer: having 3 large cruise ships with 3000-6000 people each - plus 20-40000 other daily visitors and holiday guests
13:39:12@jez:petrichor.mePetrichor 🌦️Wowsers, that's a lot of people!
