Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 17

Today is April fools day, but it is no laughing matter. I can no longer tell you if something happened yesterday or Friday two weeks ago. Its just one big blur of time. Get up, get dressed, sit in front of a screen. Go to bed. Repeat.

Work carries on at a crazy pace, I am more occupied now than ever before. Some days it feels like I have back to back meetings, or death by teleconference as I started to call it. There are definitely more video chats now that used to be just small catch ups with colleagues. Maybe it is also that work is in a phase of what would always have been a busy time. Either way, I am thankful for the opportunity to work and to be able to do it from the safety of my home office/living room.

Some days like today I feel like I want to wrap myself in a blanket and watch Gilmore Girls all day, but unfortunately I cannot eat as much junk food as they do and stay in such good shape. Not that I have ever been in that good shape. I worry about the world we live in. I worry about how it will look when this is all over. I worry about my home country and what will happen in the weeks to come.

However, when the going gets tough the tough goes out into the sunshine to buy the essentials. The sun will come out tomorrow, and the day after that, and the one after that, and maybe one day the sun will rise and the world will be a bit healthier.

Be kind. Stay safe.
