I decided to take on astrology, the past few days I've been reading away, taking notes and practicing birth charts. I've also played The Sims 4. I plan on reviving my Pokemon Go and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite accounts for something to do outside my house for a little while (thanks to Genegal for mentioning Pokemon Go on the Covid thread a few days ago, would have never thought of it) Still in search of my puzzles but plan on doing them once I find them.



What have you guys been doing that maybe us other Dishers could take on as well?

Genealogy and crocheting... I'm thinking of having another book published through Amazon, so I can make some money.

I'm trying to work on some of my stories that I got writers block on.

I train all my friends. Many do not know how to stay safe and alive. They do not wear masks, still go shopping, or bring groceries et de not qurantaine them. I live in NYC, so you can image how serious this help is taken. I'm exhausted. I will try to sleep more.

I hate to say that but I am quite enjoying the time - usually I am stressed out with work, raising three kids, ... So I am:
- knitting
- crocheting
- playing board games I haven't played in ages
- cook
- go for long walks
- take photos

I moved in on January so I finished arranging everything in my new home
Watching the whole Big Bang Theory TV show at long last; watching performances of former and current ice dancers on Youtube
Reading books I never had time to read before
Using Google maps to visit places at the end of the world

During the week I have predominantly worked full time at the office. As it takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes one way with public transport, I have also spend a lot of time in public transport or waiting for it. Besides that I had some nice colleagues who helped.

During the weekends I predominantly cleaned parts of my small house. But in my own opinion it is still a dump  Cry  At the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak in NL I already had filled a box with stuff for the 2nd hand shop. But when I was up to it to bring it to the shop, they closed until further notice. The same with my regular selection of my overload of books. In general I bring them to a literature café in town, which just started this year. But this café is also closed now. Online there are too many books and such for sale currently. So or I have to leave them at my home for the time being or perhaps provide some of the street libraries in my surroundings with some extra books


I am a very avid reader, but my brain refuses to facilitate reading. This week I was happy I finally managed to read some simple romance novels. A kind of reading block. Besides that I have movies at home and available online/tv (the company where I have my tv prescription made some movie channels for free a while because of Corona). I have real life puzzles (very funny ones) at home and puzzle and games options online, also some material to draw, coloring, knitting and such available, but my mind is simply not up to it.

Even the puzzles at my job, which are part of my work, are taken more time then before. But that is also because I am missing my regular sparring partners (aka my direct colleagues) at the office.

My employer announced a collective closing of the company, both national as international, for about 1.5 a 2 weeks at the end of the month. No problems with the company, but to maintain rescources for better time We are supposed to use our own holiday days for it. Not my cup of tea in these times, worrying what to do in this 1,5-2 weeks?? One of the ideas is working on my (rental) appartment - repairing; painting; new floor; some new and/or additional furniture etc. I would need some physical help and advise with that, which isn't easy / not possible because of the Corona. But I will see, I have some offers of help from another kind from sweet friends and family (and even colleagues). It also will be a challenge for my mind because of my mental issues. Family already advised me to use the coming time to prepare a planning for the time off.

In case you need a sparring partner with regard to your stories (to ease your writers block) I am here....
