Honestly I can probably count myself as very fortunate when it comes to this whole pandemic thing -Sweden's policies (when it comes to my age-group) have been relatively permissive this fall and I've been able to see friends and socialize - but sitting in front of my computer all day over zoom has been kind of shit tbh.
I feel like I am a terrible lab partner because I can't focus properly and get so distracted even as we sit on a voice call working together and I basically never feel that good "oh-yeah-I'm-being-so-productive-and-getting-things-done" feeling. And I'm a bit worried that this isn't a "it's hard working from a distance"-thing but a "you have a problem with self-control"-thing.
I guess we'll see whenever working in person is a thing again.
Other than that things are going pretty well, 2020 hasn't been that terrible of a year personally honestly, my mental health issues haven't been that much of a problem (except that one week when I drank like 5 l of tea a day and got anxiety and slept terribly). My summer was pretty good, lots of going swimming outdoors which is all I ask for in a summer really. I couldn't catch up with my friends from home over the summer which was sad.
I've found new hobbies (sewing, bouldering) and that is fun. I try not to think about what I would be doing right now if things were normal. My life would probably be very similar if I'm honest. There is talk about restrictions being basically the same as now for at least a year, and that honestly wouldn't be terrible (for me). It would be a but sad, but life right now isn't that bad (for me). This situation is hitting a lot of people a lot harder than it is hitting me, both to me being younger and not having to isolate and due to not having that many hobbies that included a lot of people to begin with.
How are things going for you guys?
