What I have been doing for the past 45 days

I have not used this blog in a while, and I have made the decision that there will still be professional posts, but from time to time, I will record what I am seeing on a personal level. So, these are some musings on life under COVID-19 after having been on essentially lock down for the past 45 days. They are random, and some may resonate with you and others may not.

This journey started for us while we were out in California, and we came back early under the assumption that the LA airport might well be shut down. (Fortunately, it wasn’t). Some thoughts and observations that I have had.

  • I am enjoying reading some of the Twitter hashtag threads, especially as they relate to current events. One of my favorite early ones was #DiefortheDow and #Leadershipin5words is another one where I found it interesting what people thought. Some are a macabre, some are funny, some are dead serious.
    • I also can get easily lost on TikTok, which is new for me, and is just a fascinating slice of society.
  • I am watching way too much television, especially the news. Much of it is repetitious, but I am starting to look forward to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s daily talks. Mayor Bill de Blasio isn’t bad either.
    • On the other hand, I am puzzled sometimes at what Governor Ron DeSantis (FL) has to say. And the Governors of Georgia and Texas are just inexplicable.
  • I don’t go out all that much, except for walks and going to the supermarket, but am tired of washing my hands 37 time a day.
    • The flip side is that I do like that the streets have much less traffic on them, which in South Florida is a very good thing…
  • I seem to get about 20 requests a day for Zoom meetings, and the majority of them are for things I have no interest in.
    • Conversely, the Zoom meetings that I am interested in, I can’t seem to get into.
    • The ones I have gone to have been fascinating.
  • I have done more online mentoring. This has been fun for me.
  • I have also driven my online class at Lynn University crazy with my level of engagement 🙂
  • My spam mail has definitely gone up, and since I have 6 email accounts, it has become very noticeable.
    • I am definitely tired of COVID-19 emails and how various people want to help me get through this. Take another approach, please.
  • At least here, it is very hard to get paper products, disinfectants, flour and meat. These isles in the supermarkets, supercenters, drug stores, dollar stores, etc. are just bare. When you see any of these, you need to grab them.
  • Takeout from time to time is fine, but I do miss eating in a restaurant.
  • I am definitely getting to bed earlier. I’m not sure I am sleeping any better though.

I would love to hear some thoughts from you about how you spend your day. Tell me something great!
