    TBH, I can't see why people are so happy at universities closing for longer. I've dreaded school holidays for years and uni holidays are just as bad. Give me term time any day of the week (probably a huge unpopular opinion).

    My company is issuing laptops and testing whether or not my department can effectively work from home, but they insist that there’s no plan to close the building. I’m not sure what to expect at this point.

    Isn't the government kind of banning travel though?

    ...and the NHL is taking a break now due to the virus. At least Vancouver won’t be losing anymore games with Markstrom being out.

    International travel. You’re free to travel domestically, though it’s still a really bad idea.

    Sure wish my company would do that. There's no reason my department can't work from home except the VP has a mindset of "If we have to close any part of the business, there's no point in anyone doing anything."

    After months of failing assignments in Politics (1 of my 3 uni subjects), got 76 in my most recent one. :slight_smile:

    I feel elated to have finally passed.

    COVID-19 about to have me going on a job hunt. Current work has been cancelled for all of March, but I have a feeling it's gonna impact April too. And I need money, lol, comfortable living isn't free.

    Like Gaytheist said, international travel only. All of the places we're going to except Miami are kind of isolated also, not exactly a whole lot of sick people on a ski slope, in the mountains and in the ocean. The government doesn't really monitor private yacht travel so that'll slip by the travel ban easily. Yes there's still a risk, but I got the skiing and cabin reservations for 70% off the normal price due to all the cancellations over coronavirus, which is too good a deal to turn down. We're not using public air transportation either, most of it is driving and the part to Colorado is a family friend who is a pilot with his own plane.

    Plus even if we did get sick, Coronavirus does pretty much nothing to young healthy people so we'll be fine.

    Do you have to make up the extra time off or does your semester end as scheduled?

    It ends as scheduled. If we even go back at all, there's still a 50/50 chance they'll just cancel the entire rest of the semester. Technically the classes are "being moved to online only" not fully canceled, but since our professors are all like 70 and barely know how to use email none of them are going to be able to figure out how to hold class online, and they've all just canceled their tests and assignments at this point.

    Trying to sell my old DS online. People keep asking me whether it's been sold, but when I say it's not, they don't respond!

    Hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep tonight. The past few days have been crazy.

    People are SO dumb and flakey online. Whenever I try to sell online I am obnoxiously detailed. Often I put "if the ad is up, it is still for sale". Make sure to put how you want them to pay too.....a surprising amount of people have tried to pay me by cheque

    How I wish I had a friend to have late night intellectual conversations with. Lol. I can immediately see the look of "boring" on my girlfriends face when I'm trying to talk about certain stuff.
