Me neither. Just got informed that school is planning for graduation in June to be virtual. I want to give up. Fine, I'll get Covid, fine. I can't do this indefinitely.
Wow, really? They're making the call already? I get so depressed when I hear of things being cancelled so far in advance -- Broadway, Lincoln Center, school. I get that people need to plan, but I don't even want to know this early. It just makes the months stretching ahead of us seem hopeless.
@Anonymous I know. I guess parents wanted to know what was happening so they made the call. I feel the same way you do. It's hard to live with this endless bleakness and nothing to look forward to. And I really think if my kids don't go back to school NEXT fall, I might just jump off a cliff.
I'll meet you at the cliff.
I'm feeling the exact same way today. Idk if it's the bad weather this week or what but it just feels so monotonous and like there is no end in sight.
I always hated February for this reason; it was after all the fun of December/January and just more cold and more bleak. But now, the entire winter is going to be that way
But February is so short and then its spring! the days will be longer and the weather will be improving. Chin up
@Anonymous I only start to fell that way at the end of March.
Maybe Covid will be more tolerable in winter. Meaning we are indoors and more alone then anyway. It's when I expect to be outside and social that I really feel aware of it. I dunno. Trying to make myself feel better 🙄
I have a couple of days off in November because of random work holidays, and I can't think of any fun way to use them. Just more staying at home. Same old, same old. (Appreciate any ideas!)
Assuming the museums are still open, go to one. get your self lunch someplace you've wanted to try (even take out can be enjoyable).
yeah, I'm going to AMNH tomorrow, but just reading about it sounds a little depressing. (Some of my off days, like tomorrow, I have kids with me, which is also a downer, otherwise I'd just go to the MET)
i've been to MoMA and the Met and honestly loved how empty they were, but that's me.
@Anon depressing in that so much is closed.
