Discussion: How Are You Holding Up?

Normally I save discussion for things about games and gaming. With us being at the tail end of week 2 of quarantine I figured instead it would be a good idea to check in and see how everyone is doing. I'm in a good spot. I'm working from home. I'm still being paid. We have groceries, entertainment, and shelter. I'm still able to make blog posts, which in and of itself is a sign of how well I am doing.

For me the problems come in the mental. I don't do a lot of social interaction in person so that's not really bothering me. However, the change in daily routine to working from home, not going to the office, and doing everything online is definitely making the days blur together. Today I was convinced it was Tuesday until speaking to a friend who said they thought it was Friday which prompted me to check the calendar and see it was actually Thursday.

Self care is important during times like this. Gaming can definitely help with keeping the mind strong and healthy, providing an outlet for emotions and feelings of frustration with a world where there are rules that make things make sense.

So how are you doing? How are you keeping on? Got any game moments you're particularly looking forward to?

  1. Mostly holding up pretty well. From having lived in deep woods where we could get cut off we have taken to keeping a good stock of pretty much everything. The hardest thing is kiddo missing seeing other kids, and getting to play not just over webcam.
