Social Distancing is a shared experience that we all are dealing with in unique and varied ways. We thought if would be interesting to see how people across the Upstate are handling this situation and get their outlook on things going forward.

Together with Fete Magazine and GVLMedia, iOnGreenville will be sharing this new 5 Questions Series as a way to hear from a few of the voices that make Greenville a great place. We will also be using this space to help people easily support our local organizations these people represent.

To this ball rolling, let’s hear from Jay Spivey. Jay is the creator of Fete Greenville Magazine and Creative Director at GVLMedia.

  • What has surprised you most about Social Distancing?

    I already worked from home so I thought this would not be a big deal. Boy, was I wrong. I truly miss being able to choose when I’m around people. I miss my friends.

  • Do you see Social Distancing having a lasting effect or do you see this as a temporary phase that will be unlikely to affect the way we live and interact longterm?

    Social Distancing will have a semi-lasting effect through the end of the year. By then either society has changed or there’s a vaccine coming.

  • What’s the first thing you plan on doing once this is all over?

    Get a designated driver to take me to Hans & Franz Biergarten for many, many Warsteiners. Hopefully, a bunch of friends will also be there.

  • What’s your favorite way to cope with Social Distancing?

    Two new favorite things – talking to my dog and listening to birds chirping. I might be slowly losing my mind.

  • Has your view on what’s essential changed over the past few weeks?

    TP and paper towels are at the top of the list of newly essential things. It’s not just that I need toilet paper – I need Scott’s TP. This Charmin stuff is crap, so to speak.

  • Tell us about your organization or business and how we can help promote what you are doing during this challenging time.

    fête is a weekly online magazine about the arts, music and culture of Greenville, SC.
