    Feel the exact same way. I went out to Starbucks on Fridays and talked with all the retired guys about nothing in particular for a few hours. I didn’t realize how much I’d miss that until I didn’t have it for a week. I like talking to those guys for an hour.

    I also miss walking through the bookstore on those Fridays and finding interesting treasures. Engaging in discussions with the staff about what we’re reading and trading recommendations.

    Sure I’m fine alone most of the time, but those days let me enter the weekend light and “clean” ready to engage with my family and let go of a week of work.

      Thanks for sharing. That release, the purge of everything from the work week, is often necessary to enjoy the weekend. Instead of my weekly trip this past Saturday, I played a video game for an hour. Then, I got up and planted a small garden bed, which helped me with getting out of my funk.

    Wow, this post brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for writing this up Justin, I hope we all meet soon on any WP meetup or WordCamp and that this is gone. Stay safe.

      I imagine that our community will have a whole new appreciation for WordCamps and Meetups in the coming year as we get past this blip in history. Each connection we make will be just a little more special. A two-year gap between meeting old WordPress friends will mean folks have a lot of catching up to do. I know many in our community will be looking forward to it.

    I just had to say things a different way to those who have never worked remotely before. “A Few Things To Do To Survive The Coronavirus Crises – With A Smile On Your Face” https://joyofwp.com/a-few-things-to-do-to-survive-the-coronavirus-crises/

    Despite the threat of the Coronavirus and staying indoors it’s giving me a lot of time to reflect. Great post please be safe during this time.
