The majority of these I don't normally do at the best of times. Pandemics starting or finishing not making any differeance.

Since I'm not engaged in self-isolation, the premise is false. Then, as x42 points out, I don't engage in the bulk of the proposed activities anyway.

Have we run out of miniatures questions?

Never self isolated.

Nor did I.

My 5 I never did anyway:

I don't drink alcoholic drinks at any time.
I don't avoid people.
I don't go anywhere when I'm sick (to do so is horribly inconsiderate under any circumstances).
I'm not in the rat race.
And I don't hang out in bars. (I'm also not a lumberjack…)

So that was easy.

Same, same. I may be physically going into a common workspace more. Maybe not. When I went to the work office (vice the home office for COVID), I spent most of my time coordinating teams from across the globe, anyway. I would also telework with local teams, as I would often have a 0800 meeting here and a 0900 meeting there, with no commute time. I actually "had" a desk at several partner locations so I could meet with someone in person and call in to other meetings from there.

The only rat race I particiate in is with Skaven Doomwheels …

A lot of stuff in the list that I don't do anyway, so….

I just retired 2 months ago and I'm still adjusting to THAT. :)

I've learned the value of simple things, like spending time with family/friends, shaking hands (I learn a great deal, from this simple gesture, about the people I shake hands with -- it speaks volumes in one second!), and all of the other socializing items listed. I will return to doing them -- I will not avoid them!

Pandemics are a once-in-a-century plague. I will not change my entire personal culture because of a pandemic which lasted a coupe of years.

When I bought my first house, it was in a 500-year flood zone, but 20 years before, it had been in a 100-year flood zone. The US Army Corps of Engineers spent several years on a flood-control project, but they waited 20 years to release their results, so my mortgage company required me to purchase flood insurance… After the Corp released their results, I was allowed to drop the insurance. During the flood which prompted the Corp to go to work, that house never had a drop of water in the basement… Likewise, it never had water in the basement, never had a flood since the Corp finished their project, now 40+ years ago -- I think that old house is safe from flooding.

This pandemic is like that flood insurance: this, too, shall pass. It is just a matter of time. As someone formerly working in the US Federal Government once said, "Never let a good crisis go to waste." LOL! Cheers!

I didn't do anything special for this "plandemic", hell I survived the 1957 pandemic and all the others since then, as well as a couple bouts of pneumonia, dozens of tornados, blizzards, hurricanes, and (giggle) MAN CAUSED CATASTROPHIC GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE. The flu ain't gonna stop me, I had that dozens of times.
