Hiya, Astranged Humans.

I am making this website in part by a grade for a class and to calm myself during this difficult time. Join me if you are confused and maybe feeling a bit out of place.

COVID-19 Overview and How it Affected Me

COVID-19 . has affected all of us. As of today, April 26,2020, the world has 2.92M. The United States has nearly a third of that at 976K. The US has over four times as many infected as Spain with 220K who are the second most infected. Currently in Travis county there are 1,396 confirmed cases, followed up with 36 deaths. I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice if you think you have COVID-19 you should call your primary care doctor for advice on what to do next.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that spreads from person to person. People at higher risk: Elderly, people with underlying diseases, and people who have been in contact with people who have had covid-19. This virus spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets from an infected person.

Some symptoms may include but aren't limited to: fever, tiredness and dry cough. On average it takes about a week to show symptoms but these symptoms may take up to two weeks to appear. I am here to entertain what to do while at home during this quarantine. Like I said before I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice if you think you have COVID-19 or are showing symptoms you should call your primary care doctor for advice on what to do next.

Early march I realized that this virus was starting to become more than just a small problem. It was spreading fast and aggressively. I work at a refurbished computer store and most of our retail items or parts came from overseas. At one point we couldn't get any more stock and began to look empty. Then we got a surge and found local suppliers for most of the stuff we were missing. After the work from home order was put in place we were selling everything. Right as a monitor came in the store we didn't even have enough time to tag it, and it was sold. At that point it was hard to keep things stocked not due to shipment but due to how fast it was being bought up. And then I got a sinus infection and was sent home for two weeks by doctors orders just to make sure that I wasn't exposed.

That brings us to now. I’m back at work with tons of restrictions. I only work 2-3 days a week and sales are slow. I can feel customers getting restless. We have been refusing service to people without masks and been yelled at because of it. We all just need to keep in mind it won’t be like this forever and just be patient.


Sewing is the only way I can contribute to this pandemic even in the small way of a msk i feel like at least I am not helpless. Making masks . are simple All you need is:

  • Tight woven cotton
  • Fleece
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Scissors
  1. You will need to make four straps. You need to take 4 pieces of ¾”x18” of the cotton. Fold both edges down where the raw edge is so it's the center of the wrong side once you have both of the raw edges in the center, fold that in half and sew down the right side down the middle.
  2. Measure out the fabric you will need two pieces of cotton and one of the fleece. All will be 9”x6”.
  3. Once you have them cut out you will align them in a stack with the cotton right sides together and the fleece on top of the other two cotton pieces.
  4. Pin the three layers with the straps together. Making sure the straps are between the two cotton layers completely in between the fabric.
  5. Sew along the edge making sure to go over the straps a couple of times to ensure strength. Sew the along all edges making a rectangle but leave a 2” gap on one side.
  6. Flip inside out, through the 2” gap,to where the two cotton pieces are now facing out. Make sure to poke out the corners.
  7. Make three horizontal pleats. Pin in place.
  8. Sew once around the edge to secure the pleats and ensure the 2” gap you left closes up.
  9. Wear your super cute and easy mask.


This is my first semester back after two semesters off and it took a lot of will to come back. At first it was going well and I actually began to like school and felt like that was a purpose for continuing. I had awesome teachers and the material was interesting. As I already have explained I have generalized anxiety and that makes change or sudden events hard to process.

Going smoothly then COVID-19 popped up and made his introduction. Stubborn like most but relentless like very few viruses we have seen. So we were sent home and now we do class online and we are to stay home as much as possible. As you might imagine this has been rough to adjust to for a few weeks. I was not wanting to get out of bed, then a few family emergencies came up and made matters worse.

I was lucky and smart enough to communicate with my teachers that things were happening that were not in my control. I was pleasantly surprised how fast all of my instructors got back to me being very understanding and helping me out of this tough spot. I Really appreciate what you guys do.


Oh my lord, has quarantine been boring. I was at home for over three weeks without going to work. When you get like this you have to take care of yourself and your mind. I keep hearing everyone talk about how they have gained weight during all this and i tend to have to remind myself to drink water because it's 10pm and I haven't had a glass yet. Remind myself that you should probably eat more than one meal.

Our minds. Our minds can take us to deep places of wonder and excitement. New ideas can come out of just being stuck at home and nothing to do. But you have to keep yourself engaged with your day to day or anxiety and depression will eat you up.this battle between keeping our bodies healthy and our minds ready is going to out last any virus and you have to train and be ready because it may just get worse as technology grows and people grow apart.

Keep yourself ready. Do little things that help you smile and help you re;oze that being inside isn't a bad thing. You can learn something new or finally learn and do nothing at all. We are so obsessed with being the best and making the most that we forget that being nothing and doing nothing is rare. Once we can relax in complete silence then you will be able to continue with the hard things.


Hiya, I am Rebecca Frazier I currently attend Texas State University. Getting my batcholors in Digital media innovations I am a creative person, recently I have been in to sewing and drawing. Though I am medocre I am enjoying my time to my self and the progress I have made learing difficult and new subjects. Thank you for coming on this journey, I hope its not a super bumpy ride.

I grew up on 10 acres about an hour from Austin. We didnt have internet for most of my life or when we did it was very limited and was only used by my parents. Instead of taking to video games or youtube at a young age I went in more an artistic direction. I rememeber distinctly sitting behind the glass screen door as it rained drawing what was outside when I was about 7 or 8 years old.

From there I went on to doing cake compitions and going to art camp at Laguna Gloria . I have recently been almost angry that life is not as simple as it used to be. And that has caused my life mentally to have its ups and downs but art and music always has my back. when im stressed about to have a panic attack I doodle or start to sing music from my heart. It sounds almost pathetic but somtimes you have to step away from being connected to even remember who you are.

Right now in my life I'm trying to stay content in what I have and what I am capable of. I hope after I graduate I can move to Portland, OR . with my best friend, Riley. He currently lives there and is an interior designer. He just bought his first house and is remodeling it as a showcase of his skills. I want to be able to be flexible of where I live so I don’t base life off a job but rather have a job that supports where I want to go. I don’t want my life to revolve around money. I saw how that discouraged my father and deteriorated his body. I don't believe that money is an end all or necessity. I want to have days where I smile and know that I have helped the earth and its creatures. I want to have a fulfilling life, not one that is just grind. That would make me happy.
