I'm doing fine. My country doesn't have as much Covid cases, but I still want to go outside every once in a while.
I also wish that I could snap my fingers and everyone's cured, but that's just wishful thinking.

The UK is just starting to come out and shops are slowly opening up. Its been a very tough time and now we have everyone out in London this weekend protesting.

obviously for the right reasons but its also worrying with the covid still very much around.
 
Well, today is the big PS5 reveal. I am really excited for 9 PM tonight, since it's 11 June now in the UK. 😜

I hope Michael Does Life is streaming during the event. Other than that, I just wish the lockdown was over. It's really dragging on. 😃

Yes very much looking forward for this evenings event, my wife has been furlough for 4 months now and looking after our daughter with school work as I work so I do feel sorry for her as its starting to take its toll a little. Going to take her out this weekend and have a social distance picnic with some friends to get her out the house.

I was really hoping that the PS5 would have backwards compatibility but I guess not. It's great that it works with PS4 games but would have loved to be able to play GTA IV again on a modern console.

I thought I heard somewhere that it was going to be backwards compatible as far back as ps1 but I guess not :(

Yeah, giving the PS5 full retroactive backwards compatibility would have been amazing. I've never had the PS3 beforehand, so I just wanted to buy PS3 games and play them in the PS5... but, oh well.

I'm sticking with my PS4 anyway for at least a few years after the 5 comes out.

Honestly I never had any playstations so having all 5 acceasible in one console would have been a godsend.

Its way too buggy here to fish lmao. Worst part is that we're on a lake so it feels tempting.

Good, although we have started to see a rise in new covid cases and there is already talk about another possible lockdown(this one ended few weeks ago).

Now im kind worried how things are supposed to work if it really comes to another total lockdown since i will most likely lose my job by then and i live basically month by month :/.
I hope nothing will be forced to close like it did last time (in the long run i just dont see that as a possible long term solution) but even without it lot of people could lose jobs.

Where abouts are you in the world? I've noticed a few countries starting to see new cases.

Croatia, we had 18 new cases today and 11 yesterday. Before that it was usually maybe one case per day, sometimes there were no new cases at all.

I don't think the UK will be far behind with a surge of cases, but I don't think we will do another lock down. I just have a sneaky suspicion our government is running out of money and can't afford to close the country again - so we will soldier on.

On a side note, I have had COVID-19 and it is as bad as people say. Worst illness I have ever had.

Going fine, just this warm UK weather is affecting me and wishing it gets cooler very soon. No power and just can't think right lol. Then again other places around the world are getting it every day and double the tempututres

Doing fine so far, still cooped up in self-isolation.
I've lost track of how long I've stayed in my house. It's almost been three months since I left, except for when I go outside for a short walk and walk the dog.
Not to mention monsoon season is coming up. In a few days, it will be wet, rainy, and absolutely miserable outside.
