How about we stop playing cutesy games and resort to meaningful conversation and useful communication (like we did in the good ol' days)....

I can't do that either. Any mention of what the modern-day prophets say about the remainder of 2020 would also be deleted.

According to the "Newest Posts" navigation tool on this website, other than two posts on dash cams and this thread we're reading now, there hasn't been anything posted on ETS since the 17th (5 days ago).

I guess we can cut out the fun and games that are used to keep the forum semi-alive during the bleak periods. The forum would probably die if we did that, but we could cut them out.

2020:
- Picked up doing exercise in the morning.
- Road bike season started way earlier.
- Working from home: can now make a fancier lunch and take a nap after lunch.
- Picked back up doing lots of online courses.
- Did lots of optimization and cleaning up in the house.
- When in the car I now listen to a radio channel, that is far more informative. Less time wasted on popular music stuff.
- My 4th language is getting better and better.
- Far less waiting/less crowds, by changing my habits/schedule and because lots of places require reservations to limit people at places.
- Got Covid, apparently my immune system works fine. Even got my taste and smell back before my quarantine periode was over.

2020 has been great for me! I'm lucky that my income doesn't depend on retail stores being open. So during the shutdown in the spring, I enjoyed the extra quiet. I don't live in nature, but a bit more of nature -- birds and some plants -- returned, thanks to decreased human traffic.

Many events went online. I've been able to "attend" concerts, lectures, performances, screenings of rare movies, etc. that aren't available at my location. I have "been to" concerts in Europe, "visited" museums in Asia, "gone to" conferences abroad (alright, that's for work), etc. I like that a lot! I hope the streaming option is here to stay.

Paradoxically, people reach out to me more often during the pandemic, I think because they're bored stuck at home. So they think, well, let's give him a call since we haven't talked in a while...

My dog loves it, too! We go on walks a lot more.

Wearing a mask doesn't bother me at all. It doesn't really impede my breathing during regular activities. I don't say it, but I really wonder why so many people have such weak lungs. I see mostly the upside. I don't smell bad smells, and my allergies seem better.

Sure, there is some bad stuff for me, too, but overall, I can't complain. I recognize that my experience is not typical, and there are lots of people who are suffering -- financially or medically. My sympathy is with them.
