I’m sure you all have been waiting for a long time. So, I’m happy to announce that our daily open thread is...open!

These last few days I’ve been extremely lazy. I had Monday off and then had Tuesday and Wednesday off too. (Weekend Editors have weird work weeks.) So I mostly just...did nothing. Which was nice. After weeks of playing games for work, hunting for apartments online, working on projects, and other stuff it was nice to just..not do anything. I loaded up Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and spent a good 25 hours across three days getting back into that game after not playing it for over a year.

I’m enjoying it a lot. But after 72 hours of being very lazy, I’m ready to get back to work and do stuff. Doing stuff sounds nice. Like writing this blog. This was nice.

My productivity has been shot since early April. I know this isn’t necessarily “laziness”, but my mind can’t divorce decrease in productivity from the idea that it’s because I’m lazy. Logically I know I’m just feeling stuck and all kinds of anxiety/frustration/fear, and this week’s events with Amy Cooper/Christian Cooper and George Floyd have really sent me tumbling.

My work has slowed down a lot, so when I’m not answering emails or doing background tasks, I’m just playing Apex or more recently Borderlands 3, not really attempting to work on back burner projects or try to prep for returning to normal work.

I’m doing little projects at home and I keep saying that I’m going to read xyz book or finish crafting my custom DnD campaign, but creativity and energy is all gone, then I wind up feeling lazy.
