So by now, most people are staying in their houses, isolated from the rest of the world because of COVID-19 (Corona).
Yes. This sucks big time. I miss not being able to go to work and see and hear my coworkers. I miss not being able to jump on a train and visit my parents. I miss going to Delhaize for 1 hour because I find a new idea for a recipe or a product I haven't tried yet. I miss going to Dille & Kamille to buy stuff for the house. I miss going to physical record shops.
But we're all trying to stay sane and make the best out of it. It's possibly going to last for a lot longer than we've initially anticipated. Below are some of the things I do or plan to do, next to work and in the weekends to ease my mind and make use of all this time being home:
Experimenting with making stock (like this one)
Finally catching up on magazines and books
Making ginger beer
Taking synced coffee breaks with my mom and brother over Facetime
Cooking some of the recipes from my recipe database
Updating this website's design + code
Getting up early and listening to the birds outside for 15 minutes before jumping into the shower
Using my iPad as a second screen with Sidecar, being able to move around the house from time to time
Adding tracks to my Rekordbox DB and creating new playlists
Going through records I haven't played for a while and relistening to them
Getting acquinted with Ableton to convert some vinyl-only records to digital audio
I'll update this list with anything new that pops into my mind. Feel free to suggest some stuff on Twitter
