What are you doing to keep yourself busy?

Recommended Posts

I don't have to keep myself busy because these fucking idiotic people that should stay at home keep coming to my work which is technically only open so fucking essential industry can get some extra support!

FUCK OFF, FUCK OFF AND DIE!

  • Family activities to do at home.
  • Binge watch shows or movies on Netflix.
  • I work from home now, so while I'm on the clock... I'm working on聽Jazz Jackrabbit Doom.
  • Learning new songs to cover or writing new material for my band,聽DIOXIS.

The same Dioxis that made Purge The Herd?

  • washing聽
  • housework
  • kids...
  • Furloughed so no work :-(
  • playing Doom after kids gone to bed...

Definitely much more active on doomworld (registered recently, but before this聽shit hit the fan);

REALLY miss going for a burn on my bike, but at least I can clean it without it getting crudded up again, so silver lining I guess.

It is definitely聽nice just spending time with my family though.

** UPDATE Apr 27th: **

  • Also building a Doom2 WAD after being inspired..

So, what have you been doing to entertain yourselves (other than playing Doom) during this quarantine?

Their are other things besides DOOM? Who the fuck knew? O_o

Mostly pondering listening to music while pacing around my room (Ive done this for an hour recently for no reason). Making an upcoming project for doom聽thats a whopping 1% done. And playing other video games sometimes.聽

Oh yeah elearning which isnt that bad. Not many people in my area can afford internet so they have to keep the learning light so they arent too far behind

Fortunately for me I am able to still work full time as my job is considered an聽essential service. Considering everything that鈥檚 been going on it鈥檚 work and then straight home. So I鈥檝e been playing lots of Eternal and Resident Evil 3, reading and writing, and listening to music.

I've gone home to the farm. Unfortunately I'm still expected to complete my courses for post-secondary.

We're calving right now so there is plenty of work to do, especially given how the weather is right now.

I'm currently making my way through Doom Eternal and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy (I tend to play one for a bit and then switch to the other, which is surprisingly relaxing). I've been trying to motivate myself to draw more, haven't succeeded with that yet. I'm also working on a map for Heretic and am contemplating whether or not I should try to start and manage my first community project.

I have two D&D groups that can meet online, though both have decided to postpone their campaigns until after all our exams are done.

Feels good man.

Continuing to work on my house.聽 So far I've replaced the leaking kitchen sink, stripped off the old silicone around the tub and redid that (only to have my wife say a day later "we should do that tub renewal thing"), did said tub renewal thing (pain in the ass but looks amazing), redid the silicone around the tub, fixed the damaged spots on the ceiling from the roof leak a few years ago then skim coated the ceiling smooth then painted two coats of primer on ceiling.聽 Also raked the yard and took down the plaster on an exterior wall so I could remove the slats and insulate that wall after removing the hornets nest that lived inside a bay next to the window (that was fun).聽 Today I finished putting the slats back up on that wall and started removing the plaster on the next exterior wall so I can insulate that.聽 Fun....

Also made a map for this project聽which came out rather well.

Started writing up a campaign world with some friends.

Played some Doom, a lot of Sniper Elite 4 and some Fallout 76.聽 Also went back to Fallout 3 and the Thief series.

Watched way too many Youtube videos and have gotten fully caught up on my television shows and half of my wife's television shows I'm that bored.

One good thing is my daily exercise walks is actually happening now (unless it's pouring out)..so that's a plus

I see a lot of people say 鈥渓ift鈥. Does anyone know anywhere someone in the US can still buy聽dumbbells? Ordered from over Walmart a month ago, still 鈥渟hipped鈥 with no movement. Everywhere else sold out. Besides that, how are resistance bands? Any other suggestions? I鈥檓 not in my prime but my lifts are still large enough that the usual pop articles about at home workouts don鈥檛 cut it.

This is what I'm doing because all the gyms are closed and OfferUp lists dumbbells for like $90 lmao

Ahhh yes. Exercise...聽 聽

Very difficult with kids and washing piling up. Did manage to restart recently - we are getting the kids to actually do some school work, so me an my聽wife are rockin' and rollin' using聽our home gym and making sure the kids do their homework. I got聽hold of a bunch of free weights and CV stuff last summer so we luckily already had a reasonable home gym already.聽

I guess they are not considered 'essential' :-(

I am also building a WAD after many many years... A couple of abortive shitty ones until I settled on one I am happy with. see this thread for more. It's a work in progress.
