Holy cow, it’s been forever since I’ve written anything. That’s okay, this blog is my toy, so I’m not worried.
Hello, everybody! I hope everyone is doing well during this very very odd time in human history. I’m doing well in my little corner of the world, and have rather enjoyed some aspects of the solitude. That said, at this point I am starting to get restless.
Now that it’s been about a month, I’ve noticed some bizarre changes. I say bizarre; I just mean unexpected. For me one of the things that has turned upside down has been my sleep schedule. I’m very accustomed to working from home–it’s been my reality for about a decade–but the rhythm of life has shifted. I find myself up until crazy hours of the night. Of course that means that I start my day much later. If that were the only change, then no problem. For me, though, it’s meant that the next day just kind of goes by in slow motion. It seems like it takes me so much longer to do things that before took no time at all.
So I’m starting to schedule more things. Sometimes good and useful things. But I’m also scheduling completely random things. I need variety in my life. It’s funny because I was just laughing the other day at the thought that if I wanted this much uniformity, I would’ve stayed in corporate America. And yes, I know that corporate America is beautiful for many people. Big hugs to all my friends who miss their office life! For those of us that are used to changing where and how we work all the time, it’s been tricky.
This quarantine has my muse bored or maybe even asleep. Time to wake ‘er up. How are you keeping your days interesting?
