The Corona Chronicles – Day 13

or: Bad temper is its own scourge Wednesday my mood got worse, only topped by Thursday. I was not in the mood of writing anything, also thinking that maybe once per week could be also enough. But now, that this is on my to-do list I don’t have another choice … Society Judging the lockdown from where I live (a rather touristic area) it works quite well, cause there is no tourism...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 12

or: A mask tells us more than a face Tuesday I was still in a good mood but it worsen by Wednesday, which is the reason I’m quite behind again but I made some notes … Society Basically there is only one topic this week: masks. Yay or Nay? At the beginning the smart people said (and thus basically all media), no we don’t need to wear them in public, they are actually quite...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 11

or: Reports of my assimilation are greatly exaggerated. Week III in lockdown lies ahead and my mood is better. But that’s not that unusual actually – I’m mostly in a good mood Mondays. Something new starts, no one cares anymore about the last week and it’s like many other things are possible. Corona hasn’t changed that yet. Except working from home, my Mondays are...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 10

or: Make America Sane Again Society Friday I had this thought that this year I might not be the only person waisting a summer, like usual. I do hope of course, all of this might be over in just a few weeks, but there is a good chance we need to do this basically until the end of the year. Even though it might be in waves. One way or the other, there is a good chance it won’t be a normal...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 9

or: It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s a Corona-Hero! There was a Thursday right? Yes, there was a Thursday. Days are losing their meaning, even more than usual. But some things, I remember. Society I think it was Thursday, or Wednesday when the parliament gave standing ovations for all of the now system relevant people, doctors, caretakers, nurses, cashiers, police and...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 8

Or: Live long and prosper! Wednesday the pothole got deeper. I’m in a bad mood since then, hence the delay … Society Wednesday I had the following thought – which grandiose achievements we might keep after the Corona crisis is over? I’m thinking about: Being nice to each otherInvest more money in social causes Washing your hands regularly Looking out for each other Invest...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 7

Yesterday was a weird day and it seems, not just for me. Mondays I’m normally in a good mood, going to work, starting a new week – I love that. Cause I love what I do, despite the stress and sometimes back and forth. The mood declines then very often over the week, but not for Tuesdays normally. Yesterday I hit a pothole somehow … Society There might be a decent trend that the...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 6

or: A lonely laugh is a sad laugh – or none at all A new week, a new color. Also I’m only counting the workdays we’re in lockdown as my weekends haven’t changed that much. As sad, as this might sound … Society Sunday, I took a walk and I saw a lot of people outside. Definitely in bigger groups. We talked about more severe actions and when I was home, they have been...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 5

or: On the shoulders of giants Society Friday morning I was finally able to buy some toilet paper – seriously, what is wrong with people? Some people that is. I do understand if people panic, really I do. It is human I guess, we all cope with situations differently. But creating a shortage of some goods where none has to be – why are people doing that? I tried for eight days in around...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 4

or: Who you gonna call? Society It is interesting to see which professions are system relevant all of a sudden. It’s not the anchorman, the broker or football player – a society can just do fine without them actually – not it’s the nurses, the cashiers, teachers and caregiver. Okay, to be fair – as I’m also a big fan of digitalisation – cashiers...
