Hey guys! I’m hoping all is well and you’re doing well while staying/working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With all the uncertainty on how long we have to ‘Flatten the Curve’, many of us have found creative ways to cope with being inside. The economic impact that corona’s gonna have on our economy is gonna be astronomical, and as scary as that is, this is a critical moment in our lives that we have to band together as human beings and love and support one another. Now is not the time to fight, bicker, or argue about dumb stuff, now’s the time to be there for one another – even if you gotta do it through Skype, text, Discord (like we’re doing) or social media.
I’m 30 years old, and I’ve never seen anything or even lived through anything of this caliber. Hollywood shutting down because of a microscopic terrorist? Unheard of, but it’s happening. Nearly 85% of our quality of life (mostly our social life) has been shut down due to COVID-19, and in the mist of it all – it’s brought out the best/worst in people. Right now the best thing we can do to mitigate the spread of the virus is to socially distance ourselves from one another, however not all of us are taking this seriously. If you don’t believe me, ask the idiots in Florida who are partying at the beach during Spring Break!
With nearly every generation heeding what the CDC strongly recommends, there’s one generation in particular that the rest of the world is counting on; the millennials. As a millennial myself there are so many negative stereotypes about us; from the type of music we listen to, to Avocado toast, to not working a ‘real’ job, to where we stand on politics. In this critical time where COVID-19 cases are climbing day-by-day, I get that most boomers and millennials have never seen eye-to-eye on the content of their character, or even how they live their lives. Still, we all got to come together as one cohesive unit if we plan on sending Coronavirus packing!
That’s all for my rant, now stay tuned for my next post where I revisit why there needs to be a reboot of Sonic Battle for the NEW Nintendo 3DS.
Until next time, stay home and stay nerdy! 😉
