Reflections after 2 months at home

Between the death toll and economic losses, COVID-19 will forever leave it’s mark on our lives. People keep talking about wanting things to go back to normal but that’s unlikely. This pandemic will probably change public gatherings and public health like 9/11 changed our policies on travel safety. I have no idea when I’ll be able to be on the periphery of a moshpit again :deep sigh:

I think the people who are going to come out of this on top are the people who adapt wherever they see an opportunity. I’ve been working from home for 2 months now. I’m so so so very grateful that I’m able to do this and continue earning money at this time. In the past I thought I wouldn’t be able to gather enough discipline to work 3 feet away from my bed but once it became a necessity, we found a way.

All of this sitting inside makes me think it’s time to start practicing with intent again. YouTuber Carla Codes made a good point. I just need to do the exercises to understand the fundamentals. I need to stop trying to learn everything and focus on getting a solid foundation. JFDI.

I really liked when I posted my coding summaries because I felt like I was retaining the information a little better– especially since there were a lot of moving parts and details. My husband is a wrestler, and he likes to keep a running and workout schedule when he’s not wrestling. He feels like it keeps his body in “good enough” shape because “the worst thing you can do is stop, lose all of your progress, and have to start all over again.”

I don’t think I’ve lost all of my HTML & CSS knowledge, but things certainly are a bit fuzzy. Time to pull out the spreadsheets again.
