I miss interacting with the young'uns at work.

The occasional dose of youthful enthusiasm is needed to counter my middle aged cynicism.

I hope things start looking better for you soon. :thumbup:
In the meantime, I guess there's cold comfort to be had...

I miss having kids around me so much... But it predates the coronavirus unfortunately.

Yep, not meeting the students face to face is a bit of a downer. Zoom classes are going okay, I guess, but something is kind of missing.
(Mind you, not missing the commute...finishing class and then walking through into my living room and sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea is nice.)

Have instituted a Friday night zoom booze up with a few cronies. Cans in the fridge, banter and leg-pulling interspersed with more intellectual talk. Good fun and a necessary mental health measure, in my opinion.
Kind of miss the buzz of a crowded downtown Osaka bar or Izakaya, but don't miss the hour long-train ride home afterwards.

Kids back at school next week, but my uni is sticking with on-line for the rest of the semester... (re-opening the dorms and students from across the nation needing to find accommodation is the issue here).

I received my handout from the government (400,000 yen) so I'm gonna buy a new computer (i Mac 27 inches) as zoom on a laptop is kind of frustrating . I need a larger screenspace to juggle all of the docs, powerpoint, videos and zoom.

Even though Osaka is recording zero new cases most days, everyone is still masked up in public, shops and supermarkets have alcohol hand sanitizer by the door and vinyl sheets between the staff and customers. Still a ways to go before we find out what the permanent effects are on society and daily behavior.

We just hired a summer student. The studio otherwise is lively, social and is about the free flow of ideas that happen just passing someone’s desk and talking about what they are working on. It will be weird for the new person I think. I don’t think they will meet any of us face-to-face in their tenure with us.
