I personally find Jack Pearson somewhat problematic given the alcoholism, they have a romanticised version of him in their memories which is quite common after death. During his alcoholism he was far from a good dad..
@msd which is literally how the NSW outbreak which has spread the entire east coast of Australia’s main land started, patient zero technically didn’t do anything wrong. Some people don’t even show symptoms at all and are only diagnosed after being named as being at a transmission location.
@rush you can train your hair and lockdown is the perfect time to do it if you aren’t an essential worker. It feels super gross to start with, but your natural oils adjust pretty quickly. Your hair is only oily because you strip the natural oils so regularly it’s actually your bodies way of saying you wash too frequently. It probably started as a kid, your parents washed your hair every day thinking it was the right thing and instilled in you the need to wash daily?
Daycares are open for essential workers and vulnerable families, id say if you are at risk of a mental breakdown that classifies you snd your child as vulnerable. As someone who has been hospitalised twice for mental health, daycare was literally a lifeline and the staff were amazing.
The midwives in the hospital told me my newborn didn’t need a bath any more than once a week unless there were physical signs of being dirty (ie poosplosion), until they could walk.
@osheamatthew that would be covered under the intimate partners thing (so yes, they can visit)
@random dude because as women we are intrinsically taught if we speak up our lives will be made miserable or we’ll lose what we have. The ONLY time I spoke up to the only terrible boss I have had, she wrote in my termination letter that I argued with her as a reason for termination.. there was no HR department to appeal etc, standing up for myself literally got me fired.
It’s great that the team are spoiling themselves, but given over half the population is in lockdown, so many without guaranteed future employment that the timing of this is so wrong, read the room next time guys
@noone right? Even when I was in my early 20s and living at home so all my income was disposable I thought spend $50 on a pair of jeans and $100 on a jacket (which I still own 14 years later) was an insane amount! I’m currently contemplating a cotton on oodie knockoff (and they have been on sale recently) and haven’t been able to bring myself to spend the $50 on something I know I will wear literally daily!
@rush mecca lit from within primer does both, it’s an illuminated primer 😉 I have used it for years now as it’s a moisturising primer rather than silicone-y and recently did this trend without even knowing I was doing a trend (hadn’t seen it until today).
@alix12 I’ve never used a primer that is tacky? BB creams give the more dewy and light completion, many foundations are full coverage, which means there is no such things as a ‘light’ layer, they can end up super patchy and uneven. Putting everything on in one layer vs each layer having to wait for it to soak in is time saving therefore a hack..
All well and good for someone who has hundreds of dollars to spend on them all, but a $10 and $100 both do the job is use right..
@cat it helped in Victoria?? How would it not help in Sydney? In NSW essential work includes unnecessary retail, we even had that closed down in the ACT in our only wave. There are at least 20 unlinked transmissions each day, which is from people being out and about, so limiting how far you can go to 5km (which still gives literally everyone in Sydney access to essential shops) to at least attempt to control things when you shouldn’t be leaving your house other than for essential work, groceries or exercise anyway is unacceptable how??
@grumpier monster that’s great in theory, but when there are 10,000+ Classified close contacts per day, I’m not sure it’s a viable option. At the start of an outbreak where case numbers are less than 50 sure, I 100% agree and I would be willing to do it daily outbreak or not if it became necessary (for me personally, it wouldn’t, but I’d be willing), but it is impossible in a situation like now, all frontline staff are stretched to the limits as it is, postal wouldn’t work as there’s no way it would reach them in time and they are meant to isolate unless symptoms appear anyway so no way of collecting the tests without risking spread as they may as well be getting the normal test which is far more accurate if they are leaving their house. It’s possible for transport workers as they can establish checkpoints etc, but in the sense you are talking about, it’s logistically impossible.
@cat unfortunately her position is a government one before a medical one and if she doesn’t do what the government tells her to, she can lose that position quite easily and be forced into ‘leaving due to personal matters’.
@mchris2 some people need that human interaction to be productive, for example, I tried a semester of uni online, I didn’t even get 3 weeks into it without giving up. I was far more productive at uni having somewhere else physically to go and have people in person giving me that motivation. This past year I have been lucky enough not to have been in lockdown at all because of where I live (we had mini lockdown at the start of the pandemic) but I had the option to work from home if my physical health needed it, those days I was half as productive as I was on days in the office, I had no one ‘watching over me’ to keep me on track. Yes, I’m an adult and I have succeeded in many areas of my personal life, but in my professional life, in the role I am in I am still learning and I feel I need that supervision, that encouragement and accountability given in person, I read too much into emails or IM’s. Human beings are designed as social creatures, we thrive being around other people (moreso with people we like) so it’s pretty natural to crave human interaction particularly when we don’t have it.
@ashleighrae I have another disability myself too but even though it affects my daily life because I hadn’t been hospitalised or needed to see a specialist in the 12 months prior to applying it wasn’t approved 😒 my mental health one was approved in less than a week because I had just got out of hospital for mental health related issues. Thankfully I can get some of the supports for my other disability though under mental health as they cross over a bit. I’m glad you are already applying though, it’s a tedious process but worth it in the end.
@meg Poor nurses... They've never been more celebrated and validated!
Personally I find the cave of wonders cake the best so far.
