Each time I go out in public, I almost feel like I’m in the Walking Dead or in those Mad Max movies… maybe Zombieland or “Contagion” or something like that… the George A. Romero flicks… blah blah blah…. the United States and the rest of the world starting to look like that.
Dead towns and dead cities with no one around at all but staying at home. There are people that still go out but only to go grocery shopping, get some supplies or get takeout food. That’s all you can do around here.
Even though most everything are closed, I still try to get out of the house somehow… just to go to the store or go for a ride with someone somewhere… just to get out ’cause this “stay at home” thing is really getting on my nerves now. Admittedly, I am mostly a homebody kind of guy but I only go out of the house to go to the gym, go for a walk or a bike ride or go shopping and see a movie in the theaters. Since I can no longer go to the gym, go shopping and go see a movie… I’m home a lot more. Yeah, admittedly I don’t work… have been unemployed for a long while but when the country opens back up, I’m gonna do my best to look for a job.
Anyhow, I find it scary that people are panicking over this virus. I’m not gonna panic and not gonna live in fear ’cause it’s not a good thing to do. People wearing masks and gloves everywhere out in public… that actually scares me more than the virus. People taking the news seriously. The news successfully got us to stay home and stay away from people… they’ve successfully killed the handshake and hugs, now they’re trying to get us to stay inside since the so-called death numbers are going up. If that isn’t more proof that the media creates panic then I don’t know what else it is.
They should be spreading positivity and calming people down instead of spreading panic. All this panic is all on the media. You turn on the news and all you do is see them trying to scare people to death. That’s more scary than the virus, in my opinion.
All the death numbers being thrown around are inaccurate at best and Dr. Fauci is a clown who isn’t to be trusted.
Whether or not the virus is real or fake, I don’t care either way, I’m not panicking. That’s not how I roll. I’ve always been the type of guy who isn’t afraid of anyone or anything. It’s understandable that people are scared for their lives but they really need to stop watching the news.
To keep myself busy during the shutdown, I just bought a bunch of albums from Itunes (about 12 albums) and 5 books for my Ipad ’cause I know you can’t go shopping out there at the time being. Buying a bunch of albums and books is something I won’t do again in a long time, just for this one time to keep myself occupied and help defeat boredom during this shutdown since you can’t go anywhere, ya know??? It sucks.
May as well shop digitally which I did. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy while stuck at home too…..
….. playing my guitar, working on music, playing video games, watching streaming services, doing some reading, doing some home workouts and I’m starting to go out for long walks since the warm weather is just about here.
This shutdown sucks and I hate it so much but we’ll get back to normal real soon.
Hope you all are doing well out there and stay strong.
