While I was prepared to optimize my 9-to-6 schedule for productivity, I wasn’t expecting to feel this sense of… timelessness that is starting to settle in after only two weeks of WFH. I often find myself forgetting exactly what day of week it is, especially without regular “outdoor” anchors. So I wanted to take a moment midweek to parse through some feelings and thoughts.
What a week – Monday seriously feels like a month ago. Here are some random Friday thoughts:
Small business appreciation:
More and more businesses are making tough decisions, such as Boba Guys and their uncertainty about post-COVID reopenings. Trying to do our part in supporting where we can, through take-out or gift cards. On the bright side, we’re saving on commute spend – which is perfect for putting back into local businesses where we can.
Getting back into the workout groove:
Luckily, there are many free, online options in this digital age. I signed up for Peloton’s extended 90-day app trial and plan to check out the 20-min classes Barry’s Bootcamp has been posting on IGTV.
My knitting productivity has gone through the roof – I started on this Vanilla Is the New Black sock pattern and am on track to finish one of the socks by tomorrow.
Virtually connecting with friends:
Thanks to Zoom & Google Hangouts, we’ve already had multiple virtual happy hours with friends – and more scheduled for next week. There’s really nothing that prevented us from doing this before, and I hope these continue even in a post-’Rona world!
