The easing or lifting of lockdown with curfew still in place has revealed another aspect of lifestyle that I never dreamt of and neither am I enjoying it. It was exciting getting back to work after two months but soon the realities of having to be home before 7pm set in with a heavy congestion of cars in every possible corner known to a homegirl.
It all starts with having to resume waking up at dawn (which has come off easy for me, thanks to Miracle morning book by……Harl….keep forgetting the author) because if you want to maximize your time at work, at least plan to be there early. Especially if your workplace is not a stone throw away from where you stay.
While at work, there is a battle between lettig go of your phone and actually starting to add value to yourself and the organization. Once you start working, then the race of the game begins with all the assignments that have piled up for two months plus and have to be finished in reasonable time according to the calender. But before you know it, it’s time to beat curfew by leaving work between 1pm to 3pm, not by choice but to cater for the heavy traffic that will drag on for some time or not, if you are lucky. It all comes with such unpredictability. 😵
On getting home, you find that you no longer know what to do with the remaining time because it’s not really a very productive time of the day but neither is it really night time. Let’s call this time limbo. Limbo has become a confusing time of the day that doesn’t belong to either lockdown or work.
You wonder whether to do some things you used to do during lockdown or continue with work, which doesn’t seem so healthy for the mind, to have scattered time not being utilized. This whole maneuvering between work and curfew is really mentally taxing on my side I must say, especially for a girl like me who enjoys predictable outcomes and having things move on a proper clock. (except for those out of my control)
So, one of those days I thought of doing something valuable during “limbo” and here we are with something to blog. I have categorized it under lockdown activity but the danger still remains that it’s not a definate time depending on the treatment one gets from traffic. All in the name of being on the right side of the law, I have had to play catch up games with work and curfew which have produced limbo, which doesn’t seem beneficial to me being torn in two worlds.
A new action plan is needed for this elusive undefined limbo time!
