Lockdown anniversary has passed, what did you do?
« on: March 04, 2021, 12:24:56 pm »

So, as a year of lockdowns has come and gone, we look back and reminisce on what we gained, lost and learned in that time! Or at least vaguely allude to the interesting bits.

Leaving each countries successes and failures aside, what were your personal gains or new things that only happened due to the pandemic?

I was more heavily locked down as I directly treat covid patients constantly at work so I barely left the house apart from special occasions. Obviously sports and most outdoor things were fully closed here so my gains were mostly indoors. I reached the three year anniversay of my main online game I DM for and we are slowly building to the climax. Pandemic meant we play at least once a week for about 4 hours since we have little else to do. I also play in a different weekly online game that used to be my in person game my wife DMs (2 hour sessions) and play in a pbp on discord. I have also run and am planning more 1 shots for work friends. Other than games I have done a ridiculous amount of DIY, full Reno's of a bathroom, bedroom and most of the garage (plumbing can be tricky) and minor ones of other rooms. I have taken up brewing and am making my own cider at home. I have learned to ski! (I already snowboard but learned skiing this winter as it is easier for the kids to learn. Also I can go to an empty hill and learn solo, yay social distancing sport).

What about the rest of you?

Terrifying that it’s been a year.

Haven’t had any crazy stories. Graduated college with no graduation so that was cool 😎

My life honestly barely changed due to covid. Weekly hangouts with friends happen over Discord instead of in person now, and I work from home only going into the office when necessary (but I was doing something similar before anyway).

How's work been treating you Forge? I think I remember a post you made a while ago near the start about being super busy but I assume stuff calmed down for you at some point if you've had a lot of free time.

Things calmed a lot after they got all the pandemic protocols in place and made proper isolation wards. Still doing a lot of CTs and portables compared to the old normal but we settled into it well so deff much more relaxed

It's been handed out to medical personal and the elderly, my own grandparents just got it done today, so it's been making the rounds.

I would actually assume Forge has gotten it by now

yup, just got my second dose so I am fully vaccinated. Most healthcare workers and elderly should have theirs or will get it soon. They are receiving a couple million more this/next week so more rolling out as we speak hopefully.

I found out I've been diagnosed with chronic PTSD and bi-polar disorder with blind rage. I kind of always knew it, but I guess it's official now.

Other than that, not to get too political, I still can't get over the fact that we have a fake president (who stole our election and everybody knows it). I voted 'NO' for Joe & The Ho, but it is what it is.

On a positive note, we are looking to move closer to the mountains, which we love. We also have a beautiful new grandson, thank God after four daughters!  ;D I always knew God had a sense of humor.

I look forward to playing again with y'all soon!

Hi all!

I've used all the downtime to work on my Legacy of Dracula's Castle game on CYS - it might crack a million words by the end (already a quarter of the way there)!

As Lady Z said, we're looking at moving to the mountains and going full hillbilly haha!

We always wanted our own little slice of privacy, and love cabin camping, but now it's time to own our own little retreat (only we'll just be there full time lol)!

I also want to have signs posted along the lines of 'Trespassers Will Be Shot', but that actually say 'Trespassers Will Be Subject To Redneck Justice'  ;)

Once we move, I will be opening a full time Fitness Gym - using Station Drills, like they do with the 9 Rounds business model.

I also went ahead and renewed the BHB domain for a couple of more years, so the site will still be here for another decade, which should be enough time to actually get back to it and breath renewed like into it again haha!

Anyway, miss you guys and our awesome adventures!

Take care and keep checking in now and again! We'll Be Back!  8)

Congrats on the grandson! (If I didnt need to be a certain  distance from a hospital I would love to be more rural on my own land. We might love somewhere near the ocean in a year or two. Ocean in front and mountains right behind would be nice)

Oh hey, activity here again! Great to hear Forge stayed safe and is now vaccinated, Aman graduated, and Berka/Lady Z are returning to the wilderness after getting that grandson  ;)

Like Drak and unlike most people, for better or worse I didn't get to experience not having a job. Being a tech company we simply moved to all being remote. In fact I think we're close to the year-long anniversary of that. Moving to Toronto to experience the big city then being on lockdown for the year ended up being a pretty big letdown. It's looking like this would be the status quo for most of 2021 as well, so hears hoping 2022 is at least better...

This also makes for the second year in a row where I wanted to go back to Japan but can't due to the damn lockdown.
