I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m seeing this day we call ‘Thursday’ (Or Thorsday as my friend Gareth would say) come around extremely often.
I mean, I know that it only comes around once per week. But it feels like it’s a lot more often than that. Every other day seems to be Thursday.
I guess that because tomorrow is Friday, and we’re well past the middle of the week and we’re almost at the weekend, it sort of feels like 3/4 of the way through. Maybe I’m just not paying attention to any of the other days. I know that I don’t particulary like Monday as far as days go.
Sometimes I don’t enjoy Sunday’s either, depending on what’s happening on the Monday. It’s not that often that there’s a feeling of impending doom, but sometimes I wish the weekends were just a teeny bit longer.
We’re nearly a month past the longest day of the year now. That means pretty soon it’ll start feeling darker around 9 then 8 then 7 then it’ll be dark at 4. At least with the pandemic, if we’re all still working from home it won’t feel quite so bad getting up when it’s dark and coming home when its dark.
If there’s one thing the pandemic has proven, it’s that working from home ‘works’. People can be trusted, efficiency and productivity is through the roof and companies are not suffering at all.
I hope it continues and puts the world into a position where we don’t have to spend an hour each way travelling to sit in a big stuffy room with a load of people making too much noise when we can have more engaging conversations and interactions with using MS Teams. I’ve been in and out of a lot of meetings this week especially but being able to screenshare and see people’s faces has been a lot better than sitting at a weird angle at a table in a meeting room, straining to see text on a projector or large-ish tv.
The world is a weird place at the moment. It’s not getting any better. But at least we have board games :) I mean family and friends and love. No, I mean board games.
