For those of you who read my slice yesterday, you know that my school is now closed for a minimum of 2 weeks due to Coronavirus. It’s now 11:30pm local time on 3 March, so all I’m going to be able to do today is a “Today I…” slice. Here we go.
Today I was in crisis management mode all day.
Today I sat in front of my computer and worked nearly nonstop from 6:30am to 11:30pm, only stopping to pee and take a 20 minute walk outside.
Today I toggled between email, video chats, What’s App messages, phone calls, group chats, and Seesaw messages as I tried to respond to the hundreds of messages I received.
Today I forgot to eat, until my tummy started rumbling. Lunch at 5:30 is normal, right?
Today I blew my screen time out of the water.
Today I learned so much about this new world of online learning we’ve been thrown into, but know there’s still so much more to learn.
Today I prepped for all my lessons tomorrow. At least I can go to bed and not have that on my shoulders!
Today I typed about a gazillion words. On a positive note, my typing skills have greatly improved!
Today I realized what I’m made of when faced with a crisis.
Today I realized that I can really focus on something when I need to. No breaks for social media, TV, or reading for me today.
Today I logged a whole 4,005 steps, and that’s with taking a walk to clear my head when I was going stir crazy. Man, this is going to be a long ride.
Today I realized that this whole self-quarantine thing is no joke! I need to be more balanced and move my body so much more tomorrow.
Today I realized that rumors spread faster than wildfires.
Today I realized that when push comes to shove, my team comes together and just gets it done. We really played off one another’s strengths and pitched in where needed.
Today I realized that working at this pace is not sustainable. With that being said…it’s time for bed!
