On a more serious note, it's pretty scary out there. Even if I don't think about the pandemic 24/7, it's sitting there in the back of my head. ...Not to mention in the world at large, into which I must venture. Joy.
And so, here is my plea, motivated not by politics but by not wanting to see a lot of people sick, unhappy and/or dead:
Please don't deny science.
Please stay safe and stay healthy.
Please keep washing your hands, keep maintaining safe distance from other people, and for pity's sakes WEAR A MASK!
^_^ Thanks. I'm fairly sure we can on the intellectual level. It's the emotional bits that keep jumping up and down and screaming in my hindbrain at inopportune times.
Don't worry, a lot of us feel the same. My current emotional schedule seems to be cry at least once month. Last month I cried twice, what a great month : D
Being of a more 'Mature' vintage. This whole thing is kind of just 'Meh'.
Old enough to have been taught/shown the 'Good old days' of the 1918 thing. And the effects of Polio.
Be safe, be well. :)
Hey! It's my 'First time' as well.
But when your parents and Grandparents can tell you the tales direct.
I sit and listen to contemporaries as they spout their opinions and think; "How quickly people DO forget about things."
Be safe etc
All good, for good or bad luck, since I stopped studying because of how far I was left, and above all, I was not going to travel 4 hours in total to be less than half an hour there, and do almost nothing, so I did not I've been out of the house a lot, but yes, in the end I feel fine!
PS: sorry for answering after two hours!
