    Sucky year if you are a high school grad too lol. Couldn't imagine the start of my adulthood with a f***ing virus destroying what should be some of the best moments of my life.

    Though that whole great recession thing also sucked for me so maybe it's just always sucky to grow up :P.

    Yeah, and also the uncertainty with what is going to come of this has to be painful. I'm just happy an 18 year old me didn't have to make those choices.

    We have a 6 phase plan to reopen the province. The plan will be a phased plan that we will plan to utilize in phases. The phases will be planned and the planning will be phased. We will move quickly and slowly to open remain closed. I have created a staff of staffers who will plan the phase and planning while phasing their phases. And this is our reopening plan. Thank you.

    Schools were opened here today, for two weeks before summer holidays (I think partly so that teachers can see how the kids are doing), restaurants will be opened in two weeks. Also it is possible to have sports events, with special arrangements (no more than 500 people in one event etc.)

    I'm guessing second wave will come during / after the summer, but I hope I'm wrong

    I just want to say that anyone working from home without kids has no idea what those who do are going through.
    Its been friggin nuts at times. I swear the kids teachers are giving way more work now than when they were in school. Trying to keep grade school kids on task while getting your own work done is near impossible at times, nevermind all the other stuff that comes with running a house/yard. I've pulled my hair out a few times....

    I feel ya. Having kids at home is like having that guy that does nothing but distract you so you can't work follow you at home. You know how you can use certain tricks to avoid that guy at work? Those tricks do not work at home.

    I had someone tell me that their pets were just as distracting as a kid... Not even close.

    If there is one thing I will never do, it’s watch video simulations or other people playing video games. Poke my eye balls out.

    Holy crap, that hail storm yesterday was wild. I only had heavy rain in my area, but other areas got obliterated with stuff between tennis ball and golf ball sized hail.

    Watched Top Gun in it's entirety for the first time ever, my God it's terrible. It's also quite gay, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Top Gun is best described as a made for TV mini-series crammed into a 2 hour movie. For the time, it is what it is, being an action movie with nearly zero character or plot development. Arguably one of the best sounding movies ever.

    Back to work on Monday. My motivation is at all time low, but July is usually the month when "Finland is closed", so I hope its gonna be quiet.

    Also the 3week heatwave is gonna end tomorrow so no complaints
