Weekly Links – 4/6

Weekly Links – 4/6

So its been more of this mad, mad world this week. And I honestly don’t know where to begin. The world right now seems to be completely different and changing at a constant rate.

What I will say is the following are top of mind for me:

  • Thank you to all first responders who are out there every day making sure to help us all.
  • Thank you to all those who work for essential businesses. Those who are going into work and putting their life on the line to ensure the rest of us can function.
  • To all those who are finding themselves without income or with a severe drop in income, or if you know someone who has. It’s important to help each other. Take someone a meal, and leave it on a door step. Or help them to make ends meet.
  • For many of us, WFH is a hard transition, figure out ways to reach out and make contact using technology. We could all use support right now.

To that end…down to business…

Fun Stuff:

So for this week’s fun stuff, I thought I’d share we found a new family game. Dungeon Mayhem, and it was a lot of fun. Led to a great evening with the kids, and if you are looking for something to do to breakup the boredom for the kids.

So life has been interesting during this self-quarentine. For my family we are luckier than most in that we have been able to rely on my job, as well as been pretty used to working from home (5 years of it). But honestly I know there are others struggling, and also terrible in my mind is the number of people who are single, and live alone that are in isolation right now. Please take some time to do some things to help yourselves. Mental health is important.

To that end, here’s so quick hitter tips we found this first week:

  • Now is the time to adopt a new routine, build habits that you’ve been too busy to do. Force yourself to structure parts of your life that were previously unstructured.
  • Take time to walk away and be alone, focus on yourself and your health.
  • Find way to engage with friends. In my case we took our monthly DnD game and made it weekly on roll20.net, and its been great. The opportunity to do something different has been huge.
  • Learn something new, give yourself an objective and work towards it. Before this I had planned on learning to use a smoker, and had been putting it off forever, now I’m finally doing it.

Down to Business..

Fun Stuff:

So a lot of movies have been coming straight to digital right now and the one I’m most excited about is Bloodshot, its like Memento meets Rambo, and I’m excited. I’ve been a huge fan of the comic for a while now, pretty much since the valiant relaunch. But you should check it out on your streaming service of choice. Here’s a trailer.
