18 March 2020: Corona Quarantine

Starting tomorrow, March 19th, the school district I work for is suspending school indefinitely due to COVID-19, which means that I will essentially be in seclusion/quarantine until I can resume my normal work duties. It is deeply unsettling to me that we don't know when school will resume, especially given that I work in an autism program and the students rely on consistency and routine, but obviously there's nothing I can do except wait.

So what am I doing during this Corona Quarantine? Or, shall I say... Quar-ona-tine? ... Yes, I know it's bad.

For the foreseeable future, I am going to attempt to structure my days so that I can get as much writing, editing, and reading done as I can. Considering the fact that I don't have a designated work space and it's recommended to stay out of public spaces, that's going to prove to be very difficult.

I also am going to try to reorganize my room and, hopefully, it will result in a much more functional space. That said, I'm getting rid of my desk that I literally never use in exchange for a bookcase, so we'll see how this turns out.

With how rapidly everything has been changing, I can't say I know how this is going to affect things in the long-term. All we can do is seclude ourselves, be sanitary, be courteous of other people's needs, treat our symptoms with cold & flu medicine, and go to the hospital if you're having difficulty breathing.

Be safe!
