I am exhausted. Today I had meeting after meeting after meeting, and I had to remind myself to get up and get a glass of water. One moment it was just before 3 pm, and the next thing i know it was 6:30 pm and I was still going strong.
The result? I am super tired, but also a little bit satisfied. I enjoy the job I do and the company I work for. Like any job there are days and moments where I feel frustrated and like I could roll my eyes so hard it makes a sound, but other days i just enjoy cracking on with it.
I have mentioned this already, but I enjoy the fact that in the modern era I can have a video conversation with any person as if I am sitting in the same room with them. I guess this has been possible for a while with Skype etc. but it has never really been adopted to this level. I have to add that I have also worked in locations with a varied internet signal, so this may have affected the adoption of video chats or lack thereof in my experience to date.
What is really fun is that it is not limited to work things, but also friends and family are seeing the possibilities available with a video call. There is so much more communication in body language than there is in the words alone.
One of the awesome side effects of this video era is that things are getting recorded, and every so often I see a video that is so funny it really makes me laugh out loud. Some of it is staged by comedians or normal people who enjoy a laugh like the rest of us, and others are likely accidental and you cannot even script that kind of thing, its so funny.
There’s a lot of things going on in the world that makes me sad and down, and I am not ignoring it, but in order to be true to myself I also need something to lift the spirits every now and then.
Be kind. Stay safe.
