It’s Monday of the third week of my self isolation because of the coronavirus. I’m at peace that the coronavirus will be a marathon, not a sprint, and have adjusted my expectations. I’m continue to try to further refine my schedule to keep myself busy.
Here’s how my day went:
Spent some time on my Bosu ball this morning and need to stop dragging my feet on a home exercise habit.
The usual work calls during the day.
Finished up some contributions for opensource.com so I can send them in.
Working towards a deadline this Friday for TechTarget.
The Governor of Virginia also delivered a stay at home in order for residents until June 10th. I’m still trying to wrap my head around that date.
While I love the gym after it’s over I found myself dragging myself to the gym on Saturday mornings. This morning I stayed in bed way too late, disappointed that I couldn’t go to the gym and get in some circuit training.
It’s Thursday of my second week in social isolation. I’m thankful that I have a job that affords me the opportunity to work from home. Being a technical writer is already a very solitary job at times. However, that still didn’t prepare me for working from home during a pandemic.
Here are some things I have going on right now:
Spent the morning doing some research for a work project
Attended the IDG TECHtalk Twitter Chat at lunch and that inspired some new pitch ideas
Splitting this evening kicking off a new TechTarget article and some personal writing
The silence outside my house isn’t bothering me as much as it did earlier in the week
How are you spending your time in Coronavirus-forced social isolation?
It’s day 2 of week 2 of the Coronavirus shutting down my local area. Working at home during a pandemic is an unfamiliar type of remote working even for me as an experienced remote worker. I’m still getting used to the relative silence outside since many of my neighbors are stuck at home.
I describe the ending to my 2019 as a bumpy landing. While everything ended well if even on some high notes, the last few months were stressful for me. Things started to turn around in December, though.
