well, i was facing lockdown stuff, but uh, apparently people think it's a good idea to go outside and "reopen america", so i guess that's not gonna last too long, huh

but uh, i mean i guess it's weird? but i'm such a hermit anyways i'm not noticing too much of a difference. i know it hasn't been fun for others, though.

those seem to be far-Right gun-wielding morons who think that 'social distancing is communism' and probably that the coronavirus is a hoax (like global warming, of course). so, if they catch it and die, no big loss.

here, how strong the lockdown is depends on where you live, you can be a white bourgie and pretty much do whatever, but be a racial minority in a poor suburb and police will be beating the shit out of you as soon as you're out, while media point as you and claim you are the one spreading the coronavirus. nothing new, ACAB.

the whole thing is infantilizing anyway. like, maybe tell us how the virus spreads and how we can avoid it in detail? it doesn't actually matter if you go out and don't meet anybody (and ofc avoid touching things, wash your hands, etc). it doesn't matter if you respect social distancing. but y'know, police aren't taught to think critically.

oh it's absolutely them. it's no one but them. and of course, the government decides they're the wisest to listen to and plans to reopen everything starting with schools soon. schools, of all things. huh

government is far-Right (well, Trump is), so, no surprise there.

like, it's cool if you're a white bigot wielding a gun in public, but dare enter a empty house to avoid homelessness and you're a dead man.

school is closed for the rest of the school year, im going on vacation, italy is in 1 year and a like 5 months. Just about to buy Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition Collector's Set soon.
My grades are up, I am missing my friends, I have lost 27 lbs, and over all I've finished a lot of stuff I wouldnt have done If i didnt have all this time.
I started owning small shares in companies and so far its good. But its like riding a roller coaster, up and down.

I've got more time to focus on taking the Placement Test and fishing for scholarships before entering college. But I'd rather catch up on my mound of Google Classwork.

I'm only agreeing with my parents to go outside and mow the lawn because of the sunshine and Vitamin D.

Lockdown was lifted in my city on the 4th, then imposed again a few days ago because cases started rising again. Apparently they're going to try loosening restrictions again on the 28th. We'll see how that goes.

All schools will remain closed until autumn, though, so that's good.

The narrative of the people protesting being morons is a little harsh. Most of them are working class people who aren't very well informed and all they know is that their source of income is cut off due to the lockdown. They're fucked either way though. The rich want them to produce more money for them at the expense of their health and they would go to work for themselves lest they go hungry or get evicted because they have no money coming in. It's not a black and white issue and dismissing them as lunatics is a bit disingenuous

More Google Classwork, another work packet and one big placement test looming over my head.

I miss haircuts as well and I don't have any professional barbers at home. A barberbot would be nice right about now.

This is insane.

They don't heed the advice of experts and are endangering other people while also risking the lockdown to be extended. They see only the superficial consequences of the lockdown as opposed to the whole system that's making the lockdown untenable (lack of safety nets for instance, the treating of workers as dispensable). Most of them are from right-wing groups which encourage the continuation of such policies that mistreat workers. I won't treat them any better than dangerous morons just as how I don't treat anti-vaxxers or climate change with sympathy.

oh also: they show off their big guns and shit while protesting. I don't think police would be cool with working class folks protesting with guns during a lockdown.
