Hi. Lately, my analog sticks are acting weird. When they aren't being moved, they don't move, which is normal, but if i make them go UP really fast, the console still thinks that they are up for a few seconds (sometimes, can vary to like 0.25 of a second to 3 seconds) and the same thing when going down, but less frequent. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like drift. It's worth getting a can of compressed air and seeing if you have any gunk under your analog sticks. That's one thing Wal-Mart probably won't be sold out on right now. If that doesn't work, you can send your joy cons to Nintendo and they'll repair them for free, barring shipping costs. Although, I'm not sure Nintendo is still repairing joy cons due to the quarantine.

A can of compressed air is as good as you can do, since every single joycon sold has the same shitty defective analog stick. Buying new ones isn't worth it since it won't solve the problem, it'll just postpone it for a few weeks until it inevitably happens on that pair of joycons too

    Stayin inside for memorial day. Just like other holidays, most people dont care or think about the actual reasons behind it. For most it's just another reason to get shit faced drunk and spout off hyper-patriotic nonsense. The Trumpers around here going to be out in full force with their trucks and guns and flags making noise all over town. Hard pass.
