Hello to all of you window cleaners out there. Let's unload our chaotic and eclectic thoughts on the coronavirus lockdown. COVID-19, if you will. Anything that pops to your head, pop it in here. Even if it makes absolutely no sense and even if it's unrelated. Then, once you've done that, make these random thoughts and topics loosely connect with sentences and post it.

I have a series of unrelated, possibly bizarre seeming questions for you all... is Germany in lockdown? Are Italy in lockdown? Can window cleaners work in lockdown? UK lockdown?

I've been looking for things to do at home when bored and university is very dull. I was looking at the UCAS web link they sent in an email (just how do I login to my university email?) earlier about hobbies to do at home and boredom. It was odd, not educational.

I think about lots of things re the UK lockdown. Are banks open during lockdown? Shopping rules during lockdown? When did Italy go into lockdown? Is there a lockdown song? If not, should we make one? It's a thing to do at home whilst you're bored after all! Should I take up sewing projects?

How are you all faring? I wonder what the NHS mental health guidance is right now? People must be finding this whole lockdown business quite mentally strenuous.

I like to draw to take up my time. I know it seems silly, but since the pandemic outbreak there's been a lot of free art projects for kids released online. It's worth having a look. You should find new hobbies to try! We have a viewpoint for projects here at TSR

I wonder how the government response is going to develop? I heard they're doing free school meal vouchers, that's good - but is it enough?

I'm very bored. Maybe I'll look back at my GCSE and A-Level work for no real reason. That'd be wild. I used some of the best educational apps when I was back at school. Do you guys still use Duolingo? That owl is dangerous, I'm telling you.

Paracosm, are you ok? Do you need us to call someone?
Ah, don't worry - this thread is somewhat of an inside joke and an experiment (ooooohhh very cool) - it's not meant to be taken seriously, but if you want to go along with it and pretend the thread is completely normal (please), it'll help with my experiment! (I'm trying to use TSR's SEO to my advantage )

not sure how long you'd survive in a chemistry lab without synthesising something vaguely useful, claiming it had miraculous meme-ful properties, patenting it, selling it by the dozen, retiring at a record age of 18 years and then somehow still returning to france, getting that house you always wanted, munching on those madelins or whatever they're called and eventually upgrading to paracosm v5.01


I should be studying right now but I am literally bananas

I am going to synthesise something L'Oréal can claim is some sort of miracle product... cyclopentasiloxane-dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer. I will call it... SkinProtectium® and make billions of euros :france:

If you're interested in art projects for your kids or school projects for kids or you'd like to take up a hobby to do at home during lock-down to bust your boredom then this project might be for you: https://www.theguardian.com/artandde...virus-lockdown You might be able to do some as sewing projects. Doing this might also be good for your mental health during mental health awareness week. If visual art isn't your deal, then you could also try writing a lockdown song!


On a more serious note, if you need to know how to get free school meals vouchers there are some details here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52098076

If you're confused about uk lockdown rules like are banks open during lockdown? Or shopping rules during lockdown? Or whether window cleaners can work during lockdown? Or How long we will be on lockdown? Then the UK rules are available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...ay-from-others

TSR can also help you during lockdown with information about A-levels, GCSEs and university. We can give you advice about UCAS, although we probably can't tell you your uni email and login. We can also recommend the best educational apps. My personal favourite is senecalearning.com.

We might be able to answer your questions about other countries like: Are Italy still on lockdown? or Is Germany in lockdown?

How did I do?

I'll be honest, I did get a bit bored trying to cram in all the mental health searches. From the existential question of What is mental health? to the more specific searches for nhs mental health. (info here btw: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs...alth-services/)

It's clear that mental health during covid 19 is a big issue for a lot of people, especially with the more limited mental health services available. Being bored and boredom probably isn't great for people's mental health, but maybe taking a different viewpoint on projects might help you with your mental health at this time.

(I know this is a serious issue, btw, and I think it's actually really important for people to be kind to themselves and not push themselves to write a novel or learn a language or paint the mona lisa or run a marathon in their flat right now if that's not working for them. Be kind to yourself, practice self care, try to get outside as often as possible and avoid news if it's making you anxious).

Speaking of the quizlet theme, trying to outdo your classmates on match and absolutely failing at it...
All time personal best is 4.8 though, so I can't really complain.
