Day 3: Unproductive

This evening post brought to you by an exceptionally unproductive day of working from home.
And coffee.

First things first.
For those of you who are wondering (which, in all reality is probably none of you), no, I am not addicted to coffee.  Despite my frequent mention of it (as it is my current drink of choice), I actually just reinitiated coffee consumption a week ago after giving it up for nearly 3 months in an attempt to curb my (at times) excessive anxiety.  It honestly worked phenomenally, and will probably be implemented again once real life resumes.

So why am I drinking it now?
Because it tastes delicious.

Now onto the meat of this post.

Welcome to Day 3 of 100 Days of Hannah!

It’s Monday.
I’m not entirely sure how you can have a case of the Monday’s when you work from home, but apparently it’s possible. And so, while I should have written several pages of a case report, worked on my presentation for Friday, and prepped cases for next week, I... didn’t.
Well, I did, but not to the extent that I should have.

Oh well - c’est la vie, right?

Thankfully, working from home means that my productivity no longer is bounded by the confines of an 8-5 (or more 7:30-6) workday, which is probably one of my favorite parts of the quarantine life.  Provided I accomplish my weekly objectives, I am free to learn, teach, and write in my own way and at my own pace.

I think my enjoyment of this freedom and opportunity for self-guided learning is why I begged my parents to homeschool me from 3rd-10th grade (after which I resigned myself to the monotony of public education and made it my goal to challenge myself by attempting to ace my classes with as little effort as possible. Yes, my teachers hate(d) me.  Sorry guys - I didn’t (and don’t) function well when bored.)

Retrospectively, had they homeschooled me, my social ineptitudes would probably have been even greater than they are. So, thank you Mom and Dad for not indulging my wish to be pulled out of school.  And thank you to all the teachers that tolerated me despite the trouble that I put you through. I really do appreciate it.

To all the students hating having school at home - please enjoy it, for me. You’re living the life I begged for for years. Take advantage of it. Learn what you love. It’ll be worth it.

Okay, that’s enough of all that nonsense. Now onto the fun!

Question of the day: What motivates you?
Challenge of the day: Learn something new today! It can be as big or small as you want - just pick something!
Photo of the day: Drawings and masks from some of my favorite people 💕


‘Til tomorrow: May your coffee be black, your mailbox full, and your productivity unbounded.
