want to share, but don’t need a dedicated blog post for.

TIME OUT

This has been a long, stressful, messy week.

Welcome to Skewed Clues!

This is a collection of things I think about, find,
want to share, but don’t need a dedicated blog post for.

TIME OUT

As everyone so many news outlets and resources have recently celebrated commemorated reaching the one year anniversary of the declaration of a global pandemic AND everyone is acting like they are just done with the existence of a global pandemic and opening up businesses and bars and having a great spring break, I am facing so many conflicting emotions.

Also, as we’ve reached a year of working from home, I fully admit that I love working from home. For one, my work office has no windows so it can be quite depressing. While at home, I have lots of options for stimulating workspace. Having the freedom to do chores, run errands, take mini-breaks has been great. However, something that is really starting to grate on me is the number of people (family members, I’m looking at you) who look at me like this:

With a smile and look of “Oh, sure. [emphatic air quotes] working from home.”

It just really shows me that, while I’ve held this type of job for over a decade, so many people still don’t understand what I do.

Just remember this as you might be looking around at your neighbors, friends, family, anyone.
