As far as staying in I am A-okay with it. I know there will be a time when normal will resume, whatever that means. Work though is a whole other crazy. All of the photoshoots I had booked for the year ended up being cancelled. That really sucked since I didn't have a back log of photos to edit, it was as if me being a photographer didn't exist. lol  I had just gotten back to doing design in 2018-2019 and was finally making money at that, but well everything got cancelled; birthdays, concerts, weddings, etc.,

It has left me feeling numb. I am trying to learn to design for fun sake and just because but it's so odd. lol It's just weird to have all this time on my hands and not knowing what to do with it. 

How has this affected you?

Being depressive since before the current crisis, my personal life hasn't been affected by Covid as much as it has been for others. I stayed at home in my free time for a couple of years now, so I'm used to it somehow.

My work changed really much, though. Before Covid, I traveled much, visited another customer every few days. Now I work from home (which was also possible before but getting out of my town was too tempting to just work remotely) most of the time, only traveling when there's an emergency. And I must say, I miss it. Basically I'm doing the same work as before but it feels different. Less important. Less satisfactorily.

In my city it was quarantine. There were army involved to stop us from going from a place to another...
It's a forced way to manipulate and put terror on people...And all that just because of a damn virus.

Lost tons of job opportunities so I have been mostly trying to improve my graphics designer skills and trying to learn 3D also to gain more leverage in area.

I've gained about 15 pounds and I'm now a social pariah. It's not great.

I'm working from home now rather than in an office which means I don't get out so much!
