Oops, am cat. #FFXIV

EXCUSE ME, the Viis do the hand thing that the Many Mothers do in Fury Road. I can never be any other race now. #FFXIV
My supervisor just came into my office nearly in tears out of frustration because she can't get higher ups to agree to some sort of work from home plan. Said she might just tell me to stay home in a couple days no matter what they say.

Dad just texted me to say they won't be flying out to visit me after all next Friday, to protect both their and my grandparents' health.

This has been running through my head all day:
It's so quiet.
It's the deep breath before the plunge.
I don't want to be in a battle. But waiting on the edge of one I can't escape is even worse.
They're sending all the students who can afford it and have somewhat to go home at the end of the week, but still no word on what this will mean for staff. #COVID19
