    Like are you still sheltering in place, working, re-opening your business. I am trying to figure it out.
    I have been on unemployment, but for some reason twc is now about to enforce people to look for jobs, even as we are doubling cases by the day.
    This **** is real.

    Doesn't the $600/wk for unemployment dry up around the end of July? I think that could be the main reason why.

    It runs until July 31st, but the work search requirements begin on July 6th.
    The two aren't necessarily connected, more than just what the twc and more importantly, Greg Abbott decides, is best.
    Although, PUA lasts until the end of the year. PUA, in case you don't know, is gig worker unemployment benefits.
    The $600 is what is known as expanded or enhanced benefits.
    But how are you going to decide, are you back at work, what is influencing your decisions.

    It’ll suck if the $600 doesn’t get renewed. I’m a tiny bit nervous with the restrictions being put back in place on restaurants/Bars I could be looking for work soon.

    Me and my uncle have been playing this game that is called, believe it or not: quarantine.
    It is really fun game.

    It is out of print but I got mine on eBay brand new from Canada. Plus the expansion pack which provides two additional special rooms.

    I await the proper time to assume my role as rightful Lord of the Wasteland.

    I (the house introvert) try to hide in one part of the house (not the kitchen or where there is a TV) while my wife and child (the two house extroverts) drift in and out. Planning to drive to Montana for several weeks though. Not crazy about staying someplace(s) strange, but with Houston becoming such a hotspot, I'm thinking, "what's the risk?" If I'm gonna die, I'd rather die some place beautiful.

    This started out as a tragic reveal of a terrible childhood secret but turned into a joke in poor taste.

    If you're an introvert, don't you prefer your home? I'm a solid extrovert but I'm also a homebody. I love my home, everything I need is here, down to my expensive pillow and mattress. I'd rather die here than in the middle of nowhere.

    'Sh!tstorm' could be construed as either. ;)

    I plan on reading, growing my peppers, working out a little, and playing a lot of games for another few months. This ain't fun, but it's necessary.

    You probably want to do it quickly before the rest of the nation tries to close its doors to Texas. :D

    I will be a flexible and considerate overlord. And you can take that to the bank!
