Day 349

There is so much to process about this week, this day, and the upcoming weeks and months. Questions without simple answers are flying, and decision-makers are reminded once more that it is impossible to please everyone. I'm not envious of their positions.

With all of the COVID-19 changes, I am facing a relatively easy transition with classes changing structure/delivery method and potentially having to work from home. Richard will continue to go to work, but so many people are facing major skake-ups and enough uncertainty to last a lifetime. This is yet another reminder of how fortunate I am, but there there are going to be plenty of people who need assistance as we move forward. So many people live paycheck to paycheck, and many of them are facing unexpected childcare changes and costs, cutbacks in work hours, and more. As everything becomes more complicated on a global level, I'm conscious of how important it is to be compassionate and flexible but also to lend a helping (well-washed) hand. That's something I will definitely be thinking about this weekend.

Also, in the grand scheme of all of this, my terrible midterm seems like much less of a big deal.

My search for "compassion" on Pixabay yielded several pictures of compasses.

Something that made today great: Tonight has been relaxing.
Time I woke up: 6:30 am
