Is it me or has the work pace slowed down since coronavirus paranoia?

As a freelancer, it feels like it’s slowed for sure.

I woke up feeling so angry this morning. This guy I was seeing for like 6-7months now told me yday night that he isn't sure if his family will be appreciative of my past. I got divorced from my first husband. The dating guy knew this since day 1 and still made all the efforts to impress me. I really liked him genuinely.
Now he has quit the present job and moving on to a new location and new job. My feeling says that he just used me for this Covid time. I feel so angry and stupid about myself.

Thoughts on delaying KG vs risking repeating it? My son (4, Aug bday) has never been in school but is so ready. Because of covid he never had preschool and we were horrible about teaching him stuff.

Also worst case - is it a bug deal if he has to repeat KG (versus me holding him back and putting him in Montessori).

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

I’m concerned about traveling & potentially giving my parents something that will make them sick, as well as getting stuck there if things closed down. I know they will be disappointed if I cancel - wwyd?
