Did I do it right? This is how we’re doing marketing now, isn’t it? Anyways, I started blogging again. Because what else is there to do now? I haven’t blogged regularly since, well, the last time I desperately needed employment. About 5 years ago. And that worked out well for me then, so here goes nothing.
We’re almost halfway through the year. I just got let go from a job I never really liked, in the middle of a global pandemic. To say I have a mix of emotions is an understatement. I feel like I have endless possibilities in front of me, yet simultaneously none at all.
Weirdly, I’ve found these last few months somewhat relieving. Working from home has given me time to work on some things I didn’t have time for before. There’s no pressure to fulfill social obligations so I don’t feel so guilty about staying home on a Saturday night. It’s reminded me of the things I actually care about and the things that I don’t. A pandemic puts a lot of things in perspective.
I’m hoping to use this space to update you — friend, random LinkedIn connection or prospective employer — on the things I’m learning and doing, my job hunt/career crisis. Maybe I’ll do some product reviews. We’ll see I guess. Because these days life is uncertain, unprecedented and definitely not normal.
