    That was a very informative video, but I do have one question: for long can you actually reuse the mask? It says to discard at the end of the day, but can someone give me a more approximate time...

    My dad managed to buy some 3M N95 respirators. Can someone explain to me how to properly use them? Or point me towards an infographic or video?

    As someone who lives in Houston and has to go back to work in a grocery store today, this makes me happy.

    Working from home would be nice, but I work in a grocery store. :/ Still, I'll keep what you said in mind. :) And you be well too.

    Houston, Texas. Everybody in my neighborhood is staying their houses, which is good, but I don't wanna think about what the grocery stores are like right now. I go back to work on Monday, and I am so worried about potentially infecting my father, who I live with. He's 65, diabetic, and takes medication for high blood pressure. :/

    I'm on vacation this week.

    At the store I've been working at (2 years now), they give you a certain number of vacation days that you can use. For employees like me, I haven't worked there long enough to get the ability to break up my vacation time, so I decided last month to use my vacation week in March. I was planning on flying out to Seattle to spend a couple of days with an old friend of mine, but as we can all see, plans have changed. -_- I had to cancel my flight, but at least the website where I bought my ticket (Expedia) gave a refund that I can use for a future flight.

    I've spent most of my time inside my house. I think I went out once on the first or second day of this week, but that was only to get a few things from a nearby convenience store and it was before the lockdown that was put in place.

    I cleaned most of my house and disinfected all the important areas (doorknobs, countertops, light switches, my cell phone, my eyeglasses, my laptop, etc). I've also taken my dog for lots of walks, but I have to carefully time them since I live in Houston, Texas and it is starting to warm up! I've gotten back into my hobby of journaling and I wanna get back into drawing and reading regularly as well.

    And I've been playing video games, of course. ;)

    Hey dude, I don't know if you're looking for advice right now, but if you want to "go back to school", I'd like to recommend Khan Academy.

    It's a non-profit organization that offers free resources for students of all ages. You DO have to make an account to access the videos and stuff, but it's free and it's available at any time.

    I cancelled my flight to Seattle today. I was going next week to visit an old friend and get away from everything for a while, but things have obviously changed recently in the US, so I thought it'd be best if I just stay put.

    I work in retail though, so I'm still expected to go in, exposing myself to hundreds of people. :/

    Mostly Style Savvy. It's one I've mentioned before, but I didn't realize that I was playing it so often these past few months.

    It's a casual fashion game for the 3DS that has actually helped me learn more about fashion and has contributed to me finding my own personal sense of style.

    In the comment section of Brendaniel's video, someone mentioned how they think an elder god intercepted old TV game show recordings and is now trying to put on its own funny show host persona, but is failing because it doesn't understand earth humor. It's become my own personal head canon!
