Plague 2020

Hello, Manjikai!

So, as I'm sure you're all aware, there's a pandemic going on out there. Scary stuff. How are you all doing?

Let this be a space for you to share your anxieties or tips for coping or just to, I dunno, scream into the void.

Hmm, I'm lucky enough to be able to work remotely so I don't feel any fear. But also, the situation in my counry doesn't seem bad at all...

It was a little difficult in the beginning, but I have been feeling better lately. I still miss the human contact though.

Hello again friends, it's been a while...

As a matter of fact this past week was the 4th Anniversary of me being a member of this wonderful site and I apologise for not being more active on it. I want to change that. 2020 has indeed been challenging for us all to put it mildly, I hope you are all staying safe and well. For me, it has been hard in many ways - including changes in my personal life that I will not write about here. Suffice to say though, I have more free time than ever before and didn't really know what to do with it all, let alone to do with myself. I wanted and needed to reach out and make new friends and start a new chapter - while also doing something safely from home and so I have turned to streaming on Twitch.

In a little under a month I became a Twitch Affiliate and one of the first games I wanted to stream is one I've loved most of my life: Tekken. In fact I was streaming it today and have decided I will stream it every Saturday at noon going forward - hopefully improving and if you like, going a few rounds with any of you who want to play - though I imagine, most of you play better than I ever will :) People have been incredibly supportive and seem to enjoy watching me play and so I will keep doing it for them.

Even though I haven't been here much, I never forgot about this community and there has never been a better time for me to reconnect. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if you're interested to pop in my stream or play, let me know and I'll point you to it. I didn't want to link it without permission however, and I certainly don't want anyone to feel like they have to be there - this is a site for Tekken & Yoshi fans, not a Twitch advertising agency after all :P

Kindest Regards,

Andrew

That's good! Things have been pretty bad here in the United States. My hours at work were cut a lot, and now I only going in two days a week, when we're closed and there are no customers in the store. My next college semester is going start in a week and it's going to be all online.

I know the feeling! I really miss going out to my favorite coffee shops and restaurants and stuff. And I miss the movie theater!

Hi there! I'm glad you're finding a way to spend your time that makes you happy! Congrats on making it to Twitch Affiliate status! That's great!

I've been avoiding posting in this thread, because... well i didn't want to sound like a douche or something. Truth is that, besides peoples moaning and frustrations about hasher the restrictions that's now being reinforced (masks in public places, and only 10 people at home, ect.), It's pretty much my normal life for the most part, i'm not really good with big gatherings, and the whole lockdown at the start, was brilliant for my mental health. I could live like this without much struggle, if needed for the "greater good" I don't really have a great time around the "normal life" lol 

I've been seeing the same few people over the last + half a year (damn time flies by) and that's been enough socially for my liking. I've been doing my exerising, playing some guitar and i've been hitting tekken again (thanks to for portessa and my friends!)  and for what it's worth, i've been realising how little i need in life really to be happy. Quite liberating! 

I'm glad that the danish govenment and my fellow danes have been great, and mature about handling the covid situation, i could imagine the frustrations if i weren't that fortunate, and that my country overall safety net weren't as strong. I'm crossing my fingers for you'll be save and happy as well :)
