    I'm on spring break so I'm just sitting around a bunch. Classes are online for the rest of the semester and campus is closed for the next few weeks, at least. I live off campus and I don't trust the fact that nobody here has already been infected, so I'm playing it safe and not going home because I don't dare risk taking it home to my parents (since they live in a small town that usually keeps to itself).

    This also means FSAE has been put on hold, which is pretty life-shattering for most people on the team. But I won't blabber about that, not the point of the thread.

    I really like the routine idea. I've been thinking I'll do the same next week when we have class again, and your post reinforces that. Let's see if I can actually keep it up. Living alone makes motivating myself to have that sort of independent structure hard sometimes.

      Well it will pay to stay home and out of the way. The government have shut things down here so I will be working from home....however that being said I am so wanting to get Doom Eternal, looks awesome and I loved Doom 2016. The only thing is I am not sure I can justify the price tag on it haha.

        Getting used to working from home is a challenge for people that have never done it before. I'll second the getting in a routine suggestion. Doing everything that you would normally do, waking up to an alarm at your usual time, showering, eating breakfast, and getting dressed for work, or whatever your normal schedule entails, will really help to structure the day, and get started on the right track.

        During the lock-down, work is still work for me, with the added bonus of a short staff and long hours, since we are considered critical infrastructure.

        School is a bit of a mess. Restricted lab access and most of the compute resources are prioritizing Covid19 related work. I am currently running a number of different projects for other graduate and post-doc students on my personal gear. That has been an interesting challenge and change of pace.

        Free time is spent mostly outdoors, but I am lucky since my back yard is many square miles of public land. Tomorrow is a full day off, so I'll probably go snowshoeing, shoot the bow, and maybe fire off a few rounds.

        Snapshot from my phone for everyone that is stuck inside in the city.

          I hear you. Luckily I have several jobs and work two of those from home so its not too difficult for me but the day job does entail more routing, so that has to be enforced when working at home during lockdown too. It is very easy to fall out of routine if you are not careful, so I just do the same things when getting ready for work but instead of commuting to the office I just walk over to my PC lol. Looks like you have a little bit of snow going on there, where about are you situated ?

          My free time is still spent mainly in front of the PC as sad as that may sound, either with catching up with the other jobs or working on this site. I do make time to go for walks etc and go out, especially now when we are all stuck indoors.

          Today however I am going to do a little benching to add some scores to our HWBOT team etc now that I have some free time to do so.

              Snow is in Colorado. 28" last Thursday, and another 16" this past Friday. It was super windy yesterday, so I was camped out in the house most of the day.

                A little off topic but I have to ask, what do you do ? I just noticed your system specs and noticed the 128GB RAM lol.
