I recently found myself with a little bit of extra time on my hands, as I am sure many of you have as well. Not everyone, though. For the first couple of weeks during this worldwide crisis, I had the added responsibilities of children at home all day who I need to teach in addition to my work from home responsibilities. I have a full-time working husband who has set up shop in my part-time office space. Then there’s the baby who is has begun sucking more and more time out of my day as his minutes of awake time gradually increased.
While all of that is still the same, what changed for me is that I lost my part-time work-from-home job this morning. It’s this pandemic. Financial instability trickling down. What can we do? I have plenty of friends in a variety of industries who have been losing their jobs left and right. Nothing can be done. Our hands are tied. How do we find a job now? Who is hiring?
If ever there was a time for me to get back into blogging it would be now. We’re on an endless scroll hoping for silver linings. I figure this is mine. At least now I have time for blogging. You know, in between applying for jobs. I won’t let this get me down. I won’t try to run from it. I’m going to stand up and let it hit me in the face because today is Monday and I have the rest of the week, the rest of this crisis to figure this out. When we do come out on the other side of this, I’ll be sure to come back and let you know how it went. I hope you will do the same.
