Life doesn’t care

It’s amazing how quickly you can get used to unusual situations. Everything I read online seems to have no other word than “unprecedented” to describe the situation. Don’t get me wrong, the whole pandemic is unprecedented by its literal definition. Two months in though, it’s just life.

Work is calm, a repetitive schedule of training and development. More than I’ve ever had time for before. It is interested, I just feel lucky. Lucky to work for a company that is willing to pay a full wage, even though they’re getting no real work product from me. I have no idea what I would have done if the situation was any different. It doesn’t bear thinking about.

Uni is all quiet, the exam board won’t meet for another few weeks, so results are a while away. Though without any exams I’ll be interested to see what happens on that front. How can you tell someone’s performance without that information? Deeply regret going on holiday. But what can be done, booking so far in advance is not usually a bad move.

Family is weirdly good. We’re talking more than ever, and we have a lot more to say to each other. We’ve been playing games on video calls, strange how doing so little on a weekly basis means we talk more. It’s good to talk.

I’m frustrated by how busy it is outside, I may be lucky in the sense that being introverted has given me a distinct advantage when being told to stay inside, but the level of selfishness I’m seeing by people hanging around in groups is extreme. It seems like Scotland hasn’t been as hard hit as many other countries, but I am worried it will get much worse before it gets better.

Signing off for now, see y’all in another few weeks.
