It’s always a little difficult to get back into working mode after being away for a week.
This morning, I had forgotten my login details – a complete mental blank and then once I remembered them after I stared at the screen for a while, I had to go about changing my password yet again. It took a long time for Microsoft Teams to update after I also did a software update. (Groan).
I guess these are the things we need to do to ensure that we can work without any technical issues and glitches.
It’s a bit tedious in all honesty to have to do this but it is what it is.
There are far more pressing issues in this world currently than have to complain about my computer boot up routine. Frankly, I think I’ve reached the point of not caring much about computer stuff anymore as can be seen from my first reply to a tweet sent by Jacinta this morning.
My response? “Hopefully all going well, I’d be right out of this by then.”
Seriously, I can’t fathom the thought of still doing the same type of work ten years down the track.
Kill. Me. Now.
If I’m STILL talking about the SAME stuff then something is SERIOUSLY wrong.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last couple of years is that something in me has shifted. I can’t put my finger on it but I simply feel that I cannot go on doing the same thing ad nauseum. It’s not adding any value to the world in any way – it’s not making people’s lives or communities better.
There are some HUGE problems in this world currently and I don’t feel that my work is making one iota of impact or difference anywhere or to anyone. It’s a bit of a wake up call to realise “what are you doing all this for?”
Anyway, that’s all I have to say about that. I accept that I’m feeling this way now so it’s up to me to think about what to do with it. If indeed it needs solving. Or if it needs time.
Today I also found an excellent website called The War Diary of Yevgenia Beloursets who is taking a daily blog account of her life in Kyiv while the conflict is happening. She posts 4pm every day.
Nothing much else to write today as I found it a hard slog as it always is getting back into work. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
