Things I’m Doing Since the Lockdown

Next week will be my third working from home, and there’s no clear date when it will end. I’m still not used to it, but I’m trying to do what I can to stay healthy while we’re all stuck at home. My time has consisted of at least a few of these each day.

  1. Going on at least one thirty minute walk a day.
  2. Trying to get my father to stay home.
  3. Playing guitar.
  4. Reading old books about old computers.
  5. Blogging and tweeting more.
  6. Trying to reassure people who are more worried than I am (and I’m pretty worried).
  7. Buying books from my favorite bookstore online so that hopefully they don’t go away forever.
  8. Realizing I have to keep in touch with friends better.

This is pretty rough. I have a lot thoughts, and a lot of feelings. It’s hard not to feel anxious all the time, and I can feel things like sleep quality decline.

I know that I’m incredibly lucky to have the kind of job I do and to be in the position I am in. I can’t stop thinking about all the people who aren’t so lucky though. It hurts to think about so many people suffering as much as I’m afraid they might.
