Chronicles of working from home: 6 Autopilot mode

By June 16, 2020 No Comments

June is a clear depiction of 2020. On the bright side, I don’t have to leave the house in this freezing weather and I can go about my day’s work under a warm blanket, sweats, my warmest hoodie and the thickest socks I own. Yet, most days I feel like I’m on autopilot. I am on my laptop for what is definitely an unhealthy amount of time. It’s either for work, school or entertainment although I am trying to source of my entertainment from books. I work longer hours than I did when I could go to the office and I don’t really know if that’s a good or bad thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am so grateful I get to work and go to school despite all that’s happening around us now. It’s just taken longer than I thought it would to adjust. There are some perks to all this still; I don’t have to wake up super early anymore, I am not physically exhausted at the end of the day, I have more time to do my school research and read a lot more. I’ve started reading more computer science books now and having a clearer vision on where I want my career to head.. but that’s a story for another day.

Anyway, back to work now. How are y’all trying to get out of that autopilot funk?

P.S Remember to stay safe.
