Forums General Chit-Chat Memorial Day Weekend

Donator — She/her Posted 2 weeks ago ( 2020/05/21 20:55:41 )

For those of you that aren't American, Monday is Memorial Day. A holiday where we remember those who were lost their lives in war. :( It's always on the 4th Monday of May.
It's also considered the unofficial start of the summer in the US. Most people have a community BBQ, or go to the beach, pool or lake to celebrate. This year that's a bit tough to do. :(

Do any of you have plans for this weekend? What were your plans going to be before the virus?
For those are you who aren't American, do you feel like summer is here or just around the corner?

I KEEP FORGETTING THAT THIS IS THIS WEEKEND, YESSS! (i'm still not used to having this day off of work, all my previous jobs had me working this day without fail lol)

Usually, I would use this weekend to travel up to Wisconsin to visit an internet (well, now real life) friend. We've been talking since 2005, way back from Gaia Online, haha. But yeah, with this happening, my bf and I are probably just gonna sleep and chill. Maybe order burgers or something.

@Addy: I kinda keep forgetting that it's this weekend, but it also falls on the same day as my sister's bday this year so it's a bit easier to remember XD
It's too bad that you can't see your friend. :( Maybe you should FaceTime or Skype them or something like that.

When I lived in FL a lot of times I would go up to Disney, or I would have a group BBQ outside. Maybe by the pool since it's already so hot in FL by this time of year. In CA a lot of people where I live leave to go to Lake Tahoe so my husband and I just stay and normally enjoy light traffic and not crowded restaurants XD
We can't really do that this year so we are just gonna chill and FaceTime my sister.

Is it sad that I didn't know there was any sort of specific tradition for memorial day, because I've always had to work through it.
I don't think I have any friends that celebrate it cause they also have to work. My school wont be closed, nothing like that xD It always felt like an 'invisible' holiday


Donator — f Posted 2 weeks ago ( 2020/05/21 22:34:31 )

I feel like summer is already here. The weather has been so good, I wore a sundress and just sat out in the sun.
My plans for the weekend are kind of exciting. My mum just got a new car today and so tomorrow she is taking us on a drive. It will be the first time we've left our village since late February, or whenever lockdown began - I've lost track lol.

What? A day off? Are you serious?

Voltie — Moody Posted 2 weeks ago ( 2020/05/21 23:31:20 )
Moody Says. . .


I'm hopefully going to try to get my mermay painting done or mostly finished.
And maybe try to finish one of my other projects.

basically, it's all art related.

My family doesn't really do anything on memorial day.

Ping me at all times

@Glume: Yeah I think you win. lol Good luck!
@Addy: That's a good game to play with what is going on right now.
@Jolly: I've had to work through a lot of them, but when I was a teen/kid I was free.
@sunny: Oh wow congrats on that! Did your family not have a car before this?
@TomYum: Well it depends. XD Do you work retail? XD
@MoodyBats: Getting art done is a good way to celebrate ^^

Donator — He/Him Posted 2 weeks ago ( 2020/05/22 01:31:48 )

eh. this weekend is my birthday, which i dread, and i'll be working, which is better than being home with my family i guess but i'd much rather be off doing something fun with my friend. which i can't. so work it is. i just hope the traffic's not too bad.
