What are the first things you're going to do once this shutdown is over?


For me:

1. Eat a meal out at an independent restaurant.
2. Buy new underwear and clothing from some local shops.
3. Get a haircut.

I'll need a massive haircut.

Echo copper I needed it before the shutdown.

Thinking of watching YouTube videos to learn how to do it my own.

The world is quiet here.

The shutdown ending won't magically erase the virus. I'm still going to be petrified and staying at home as much as possible.

Which isn't much of a change from my usual routine the past 30 years, anyway...

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

I don't think much will change for me, although I do think we'll order some take out.

Go out to a nightclub/bar, dance and party all night. Just kidding :/
I'll probably take some time off work and go visit some of my close family members. I'm not very social so I get nervous going back home cause I have to deal with extended family members too but it's always worth it.

Assuming I don't die a miserable death of a fever and not being able to breathe, I plan to go out and get a pizza and some drinks. Will go the market and stock up on needed foods like milk and eggs. Would also like to do some casual shopping like visit a thrift store.

Don't let people treat you like dirt.

Maybe go out with a friend to a restaurant, assuming they'll open again for eating in. We were planning to do some stuff for my birthday this summer but that will most likely all get cancelled, so I might plan something later, although I'll probably just not say anything.

Probably start going to the gym again, although I might wait a bit for that, seems risky. Also shop at some places that have closed down.

Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...

Be a little brave for a little bit of time.

Will be good to go to my favourite cafe again in the city, but once it's completely over I'll be going to Bali for sure.

Ditto. People seem to be under the impression that the virus has been told to "be gone!" by a certain date. As someone with a compromised immune system, I have no plans to rush right back out into the germ factory of society.

Nothing I guess. At some point I should visit my nan + dad though, but that will depend on when I feel it's the right time.

The only difference between my life now & prior to the shutdown is not working part time...I’m sure at some point I’ll miss mixing things up with shifts here & there but that won’t be anywhere near as fast as most people
