Seems like a change of plan is in order. New top of the list; homemade safety supplies.
Gun goes on the bottom of the todo list; too much government involvement in them, maybe you can figure out some diy gun solutions while you're at it.

Staring of the people, weird, but you have stuff to do and you set out. On the corner of your block is an asian grocery store, yet as you reach it, you wonder whether you should take the 15 minute walk to the hypermarket instead. The gun store is over there as well, but it might be worth protecting yourself before that time. Especially if the government if involved in this stuff. What was this health crisis about again?

Again, giving the government way too much credit by assuming they're smart enough. If we're following the conspiracy theories, which only complete nut-jobs do, probably CIA that would try to get everyone to panic and act stupid. Do I even have a permit for a gun? Making my own would be super shady. Let's focus on what we actually need first.

They say the virus started in China, but all the government knows how to do is lie! The real truth- the 5G towers are poisoning us with transmissible radiation! They don't want us to figure it out so the big companies can make money, money, money. Despicable. We need to use the attention we're getting to take action! The people need to know what's really going on!
"Critic, the government just wants you to think that! If you're talking that way, we may have already ingested something! We need to find those videos on homemade soap ASAP!"

In reply to Paranoia (msg # 37):

"No, they want us to think they know everything about everything, when really, they don't know sh** about anything. Do you want to be the one that gets us thrown in a loony bin?!? I swear, we've been watching way too much X-Files lately." The radio frequency radiation from phones or phone towers are way too weak to be able to do any damage, and all spouting random conspiracy theories is gonna do is make me sound crazy. What we need to do is pull ourselves together.

In reply to The Inner Critic (msg # 38):

"They must have gotten to us already! Don't you see? It's a neverending cycle- they have secrets we couldn't possibly know! Better to be safe than sorry! All the better if we're called crazy- then people will see the truth! That the ones above us need to silence us because we speak the truth!"

What's most important is that we work together against the schemes of the world government! Us, and the innocent people being brainwashed! We can't listen to the things others say!

All these voices in my head, it's so interesting, like it's the first time that I'm not crazy busy with work that I become aware of the different opinions I house in my head. Brilliant, first day and I'm already learning so much about myself. I'm full of conflict and complexity, isn't it amazing, am I not a wonderfully fascinating specimen of our kind? - I'm thrilled.

Alright. Better avoid the larger supermarket, too much potential for trouble, too many people. Though I'm kind of curious to go there, I wanna get a sense of the true scope of this situation! Besides I need to make sure to get all the soap and sanitizer ingredients. It might be better to go now when not that many people are infected yet, and stick to the smaller supermarket in the future.

Yes! What a great idea- let's go to the large supermarket! Even better if it's full of people- they need to know about the virus! We can tell them! Don't worry about going to the smaller market, I'm sure that the government has plants in both of them anyways.

CAN'T
HANDLE IT!

What are all these contradicting goals? How do you expect all self-respecting ambitions to be able to pursue everything and its contrary??
First we need to be rich, then we must unveil the great conspiracy, and what about the gun? And the survival? And the toilet paper?? Now it's all soap?
SOAP SOAP SOAP SOAP SOAPA SUPA SUPERMARKET WHAT
I feel like I am completely losing sight of the meaning of my life.

I might be screaming this aloud,
I am not sure,
Am I lying on the ground?

We must define a clear life goals guys or I am not sure I can make it through the day!

Well, apparently I'm the only shred of sanity here. I don't need a gun, the conspiracy is complete BS, and realistically, only so many things can be done in one day. I keep saying that I need to get the essentials, grab stuff for hand-sanitizer, make the hand-sanitizer, and sell it.

Yes, you realize, you are lying on the ground, screaming aloud. Maybe you were even talking to yourself earlier, that's what was causing to people to look at you? Ok get up, act normal. Luckily people in emergency mode are rather likely to avoid people behaving weirdly like you, rather than approach them and ask if they'd need help or anything. Right?

Standing up again, you take a few deep breaths and list your goals again:
  1. Define clear goals, in progress.
  2. Buy the materials.
  3. Produce emergency supplies.
  4. Sell them.
  5. Profit.


Ok, so this cornershop is not the way to go for you, so off you go towards the large chain hyper market.

"My my, are you quite alright dear?" An old lady asks you with a hoarse voice and a snotty puffed up nose.

Quick, I need a way to not seem complete crazy. I should try telling her I was rehearsing lines for a video I plan to do. Lots of people do videos these days, and often play multiple roles.

Video. Great idea. Makes sense. The video would be really good if I actually did it as well. I should actually do the video. I should ask the lady to hold my phone and video me.

Nono! Just made quick and polite excuse, I don't want to get too involved with external voices now, especially not if they might be sick! I agree to getting our priorities straight, survival has top importance, how else am I ever going to learn more about what really drives me?

Ok, excuses don't seem to do it at this point, better sound confident, put the lady to ease. "Woman, look. I'm rehearsing for this video. I'm a famous vlogger. Many people make videos, its totally normal. Method acting, yes, I have to embody my subject a become one with it. As this is clearly not cutting it in making her believe you, you take your phone out of your pocket stick it out in her directions and blurt out "You seem like you can hold a camera steady, why don't you make yourself useful a help me make this video."

The eyes of the lady seem to oscillate from worried helpfulness, to utter confusion and back. Not sure what to make of you, she responds: "Eh, dear. Of, of course." She takes your phone in her hands and looks at it like it's the first phone she's ever touched with her own bare hands.

She's old. Probably has no clue how to use a smartphone. Better give her instructions, and gently too. Don't wanna give the lady a heart attack.

First social contact of today, makes me feel confident and socially capable again. I'm doing this right, it's gonna go really well and I can write about this experience, add it to the amazing video she's gonna take of me and upload everything to instagram. I'm curious to see how other people will respond to this - maybe this brings in enough attention to start my soap-selling business too.
