How has this affected your daily life? My job training is on pause, which means I'll start officially working weeks or maybe even months later than expected. I also cancelled a cross-country trip to visit family. Please be careful and patient, everyone.

I'm sorry to hear that, Nickel!  I know you were excited about your new job. 

Work is still going about the same for me, but we aren't brainstorming together or going out after work like we did before.  That's the toughest part for me  - all the social distancing.   It's not as appealing to hit the treadmill as it is to run with a group outside.  Work is tougher without someone to bounce ideas off of.  Volunteering online doesn't seem as productive as volunteering in person.   And it doesn't feel like Lent without coming together for the community fish fry on Fridays.  Basically, I miss my friends, I miss church, I miss competing with co-workers, I miss going out, I miss being part of a group, I even miss the polite chatter that two strangers often make in the grocery store checkout line that's backed up a mile long.  It's just a lonely time to be an extravert! 

Thank goodness for gardening!  It helps relieve stress - even if I do catch myself chatting to the plants.
