My cousin and I were taking about working from home – we both do and are used to it. I’ve been working from home alone for many years. I have a regular business and of course I cartoon and I blogged for 15 years – all solo jobs that I do from home.
So this “Shelter in Place” and working from home isn’t really phasing me much, I’m just worried about lack of money at this point.
I’ve seen people post things on social media where they are going crazy at home. I’m more of a loaner, most people aren’t. They need all those people around them, which is good and healthy. But they say they are distracted while working at home. Maybe it is an art. I actually think people who work from home get more done than those in the office, I find there are more distractions at the office – people walking through, conversations with different people every other minute, more visual distractions, etc.
I’m seeing funny memes like this one pertaining to home schooling by parents: “Many parents are just about to discover the teacher was not the problem.” I sent that one to another cousin who is a teacher.
Or in my case, one meme rings true: “When you find out your normal daily lifestyle is called ‘quarantine.’ ”
One of my favorites says something like, “Your grandparents were called to war, you’re being asked to sit on the couch and watch Netflix. You can do this!”
