QUICK CALM CHECK: ARE YOU STAYING SAFE AND SANE DURING THIS PANDEMIC?

THE CRACKHEAD GETS TO BLOG

This worldwide pandemic driven by COVID19 virus has brought an inevitable change to human race and we never thought that such catastrophic episode will define our generation. But how does one cope to an invisible war and will we ever see the light at the end of this? We crackheads, will always find a way the way Einstein will be never proud.

Hair Cut & Hair Color, Bake Goods and Viral Recipes

Whatever happened to helping those in need first? Nah, I’m not here to lecture you, doll! We all did our share, helping those we can, however difficult each of us is facing in our lives.

But hey, when all the time in the world was given back to us just to stay still, we go haywire and find something that will still make us a tad bit of different from others — that’s through cutting our own hair regardless of the result, fixing  our hair color to whatever is available, to trying some home baking and feeding our helpless family members and following a YouTube recipe you thought was that easy breezy.

Panic Buying of Everything, Everyone else’s buying       

And so we’ve seen the panic buying of canned goods, noodles and alcohol in Metro Manila few days before the Mega Metro’s official lock down announcement on national television.

Where bulk tissues are running out in other parts of the world, we Filos cannot relate as long as we have water! We even panicked on getting the right information and we bought a lot of lies along the way, pun intended.

Work from Home Arrangement (WFH)        

Lucky are we, among those who are grateful we still get to keep our employment during this crisis, that a Work from Home arrangement is possible while the rest of labor force and business establishments, struggled to keep afloat.  

And so the supply went up for extra monitors, laptops, internet connectivity, table, and the search for a comfy work chair. We’ve started to morph into someone we never thought we are capable of, then you are suddenly on your own at your new workplace, your home!

We scrambled at the first couple of days, we became our own IT support. Our family members never have been so proud discovering how fluent we speak in English and learning we can only do math in excel.

We have our own share of faux pas too, shouted at our housemates for being too loud during a meeting, crashed into our video conferences then stared and stopped mid-video call, and all this time they stayed confused why you have a playtime  once a week while at work.

The world will continue to evolve based on our new behaviors and we will keep finding ways to calm down and move together, make it out alive out there and breathe fresh air, literally, in the safest way possible.

Ciao,
