Each week on Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings blog he has a post for Saturday night Genealogy fun. Because of the time difference, I have called my series Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun. This week’s mission was:1) Check out Pauleen Cass’s blog post, Crazy Month of May 2020 Meme: Pandemic Experiences. We did the first 10 prompts last week.
2) Let’s do the last 11 of the prompts this week.
3) Tell us about your own pandemic experience in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a post on Facebook. Be sure to leave a link to your work as a Comment to this post and also on Pauleen’s post.
4) Thank you, Pauleen!!
11) What have you found to be the strangest change to your life?
Probably the strangest change is having to have my temperature taken before being able to go into the hospital for my appointments.
12) Have you found the changes and experience stressful/anxious/worrying?
I haven’t found many changes in my life, so it hasn’t been stressful or worrying.
13) How have the closures affected your local community?
I haven’t noticed many changes, but I don’t go out much anyway, and the places I do go to are still operating as usual.
14) Have in-person meetings been replaced with virtual meetings via Zoom, Skype etc?
I wasn’t going to in-person meetings beforehand anyway. I do miss the Friday night get-togethers with friends.
15) Do you enjoy the virtual meeting format?
I have never used the virtual meeting format, so I don’t know if I would enjoy it or not.
16) Are you working from home instead of in your usual place of work?
I have not been working since moving to Numurkah in September 2011, so there’s been no change.
17) Have your habits changed over the past months?
My habits haven’t changed much, because I wasn’t going out much beforehand anyway.
18) Have you had to cancel travel plans for pleasure or family?
No, I haven’t, but my sister had her cruise cancelled in March.
19) Do you think you’ll be able to travel in 2020?
Since restrictions are starting to ease here in Australia, I may be able to travel later in the year, but I’m not sure I would have gone anywhere anyway.
20) Have you/others been wearing masks when out and about in your area?
I see some people wearing masks when I’m out, but not many. I haven’t been wearing any myself.
21) Will you change your lifestyle after this experience?
I don’t think my lifestyle will change much after this, because I haven’t been going out or visiting people much anyway.
