Morning Pages: May 8th, 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of lockdown. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily "morning pages" get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.

This is a nice doggo.

Apparently Reddit uploads iOS videos as .m3u8 format, which are tricky to handle and to convert to .mp4. I like gfycat now.

It's Friday, and another week gone. Time is passing by insanely quickly for me and I wish I could slow it down somehow. I could use the extra time. The hourly journal I've been keeping of my day helps a little bit, but I think psychologically being in the exact same environment day after day probably contributes to the subconscious "sameness" I've been feeling. I'm also having trouble timeboxing specific tasks, especially since some tasks are blockers for others. I feel like I just need to get over this one little hill, I'm sooo close, and then things can finally relax a bit.

Maybe I'm lying to myself, but this is honestly how I feel. Only time will tell if I'm right, and I hope that day doesn't come until I'm ready.
