A lot is going through my mind on this day. I’ve found it’s helpful to put it all on paper. In this case, I’m at a keyboard and typing away to share my thoughts on what is going on in the world around us.
I’m working from school today for what will probably be the last day. We’ve prepared packets for three weeks for our students. They are to come by Thursday or Friday of this week to pick those up. We also made a video this morning to share with parents and students on how to be utilize those packets.
Tomorrow and Friday I will be officially off the clock. I worked Monday’s workday, which I wasn’t supposed to, so I’m taking off Thursday to make up for that day. I wasn’t scheduled to work on Friday, so no big deal there.
I’ve already filled out the form to work from home beginning on Monday. I currently don’t have any plans to return to school. I just don’t see that I really need to be here, when all the duties can be accomplished from a home computer. I’m not really paranoid, but I’m also aware I’m one of the oldest persons on campus and there’s no need to put myself at unnecessary risk.
Life has become like a scene from a science fiction movie….Surreal is the work I think of most often…then comes unprecedented…and a new word: draconian – especially harsh and severe. I’ll be exploring that word in a later post.
So here we are…the world as we know it will never be the same. I would say that this is bigger than 9-11 in the number of people it will affect and its ramifications for the future…
Life as we know it will never be the same!
