Had a function of some kind every sat next month.. Every single 1 has been cancelled... Several gs lost with that... A few shoots cancelled cause of it... Had to push back certain situations till summer/fall... Was suppose to meet some new out of state talent for future ventures of course that has now been postponed... Networking opportunities pushed back... Definitely messed up various situations but take the good with the bad.. Family good, still got a nice lil stash not so mad... Also cause of all of this doors have opened up for other opportunities which kinda put certain services in high demand so now and future situations are popping up.. Maintaining

Had to cancel my daughter's sweet 16. Had family flying in from Arizona and NY.
Will be working from home for this week. My staff as well. Our biggest offices have closed. London, NY, Paris and the ones in Asia. My Manila team is working from home, but some live in parts where they don't have wifi or Internet.

Self quarantining. Came down with the flu last week. Was worried asf so staying out the way and working from home. Job is making all employees wfh starting this week so I just got a head start on everybody. Wife is stay at home mom so no issues with childcare. Having trouble finding items in the grocery is really the only pain in the ass I've experienced.

Basically they cannot afford to keep everyone. Business was bad before the virus outbreak but this mad it worse. I am not even upset with the company cause I saw the figures going down b/c I work very close with accounting. I knew my goose was gonna be cooked. I just thought it would be in the summer. Not so freaking early. Nothing I can do about it.

I never been to China but i am affected by some shit that started there.

Damn, sorry to hear that. Why did you lose your job?

Sweden closed borders but everything is functioning normally at the moment

Studio is on hiatus but no drop in inquiries. Travel segment of the business is dead right now. I also teach music production at a middle and we’re operating normally.

Swedes are amused at the irony of Americans hoarding toilet paper

Nothing too major so far.

Daughter out of school, but my wife had surgery recently that's got her sidelined as well. So they will be home together for the next two weeks. MINIMUM.



My classes will be online for the next two weeks, but I'm still required to be at school.

I haven't checked my 401k since the economy started to crash. Don't even want to know.



I am worried about my parents. My pops have been fighting cancer for ten years now. I'm going to feel a type of way if the corona is the one that gets him. The chemo has got his immune system compromised.

Got some loved one going through life shit that nothing to do with the virus.

Basically, I stay worrying about the future for me and others, but it is what it is. This shit is out of my control. Life going to make me and everyone else hold many Ls without our permission anyway. Keep on keeping on, fellas. Life never promised us stability.

Appreciate that. I believe my folks will be good. They had to keep the placed sanitized anyway prior to this outbreak of corona.

My daughter is 11, so she isn't going anywhere without us.
