Coronavirus 1 year on - how has your life changed?

Answered 9 months ago

I can't believe it's been a whole year now that we have been dealing with Covid-19! Apart from the obvious (masks, social distancing etc) has your life changed much over the past year because of this? If so, how?

Its barely changed. The main difference is having to keep pulling our our phones to sign in and waiting until another person leaves the bakery before I can go in

Made redundant from a job I wasn't happpy in, took a chance and accepted a contractor position at a place I absolutly love now I am working full time at the best job and with the best people.
During the not great first 6months I looked at my life and made a heap of positive changes and decisions, I am happier now then I have been in a long time and appreciate what we have instead of looking for more

All the people saying life hasn’t changed haven’t really thought about it. Without much thought I immediately think about how I can to sign in when I go anywhere, the library, the cafe etc
Being anonymous has gone

My online business did well. My husband got a new fully remote job. I am trying to go back to work part time. Originally I wanted to work remotely so I am hoping my job opportunities are going to be remote after the shift to working at home in general.

It hasn’t. I worked all the way through. My kids are all older and did distancing school like a boss but they were all well versed in online learning because we had travelled on and off overseas in the years prior taking them out of school.
I think mostly i no longer do any supermarket shopping and do all my shopping online. All of it. I used to do the Christmas shopping that way each each but now I do groceries and what not.
My kids seem pretty unphased. Older teenagers and all ... most of their life is on a screen

Everyone assumes she was a covid lock down baby. But we had been trying for quite a while so for me covid has made a positive change to our life.

For me... little. I still go to work every day and my neighbours - who mostly work in the public service - all sit around at home every day. So sick of this "we are all in this together" BS. Alot of people have basically had a paid year off while other people have been put through enourmous hardship and then get vilified for caring about jobs and employment.

We can’t go back to my husbands home. He hasn’t seen his family and parents for 4 years now (we go back every 3 Years as flights along are 8k and it’s a 2 day /2 and a half day travel)
We lost our flight last year and his mum will die within the month.
Our financial situation was not overly affected. Maybe only 10k
But we took out 28k in super so we’re actually better off.
We also live in qld so don’t wear masks and tbh no one practices social distancing. Life when back to “normal” pretty quick and in our day to day life it didn’t affect us negatively.
But not being able to see my husbands family has been bad. He hasn’t been coping well mentally with it and feels tremendous guilt. I don’t know how he’s going to cope when she goes. His brother died in October and burial is an extremely important part of his culture that he missed. And now will miss honouring his mother.
And my family too but we see them regularly and we saw them in the two small windows that opened last year.
I lost 5 family / close friends last year and couldn’t attend funeral but tbh that suited me I hate funerals.
