COVID-19 Diary – Working From Home and Panic Shopping

Today I worked from home. I had two conference meetings, one in the morning and another in the evening.

Working from home can be fun, but the communication can be hard (even with all the technology). I can confirm that today was more tiring than a typical day at work, because I have to stay alert and conscious the whole time to make sure I don’t miss any urgent directions from my bosses. It became even more exhausting to prove people on the other side that these people at home were actually working.

Or perhaps, I don’t know really sure about this new normal yet, it was our first day after all.

In the evening, I had dinner outside and initially planned to get some food supply. (I’ve googled the apocalypse survival checklist) The supermarket and grocery shops are on a brace, attacked by those panic people (me, almost being one of them).

But I didn’t want to swim in humans, who knows they brought along COVID-19 virus with them. So I just grabbed some bread from a rather unoccupied bakery, also a pack of flour and some medicine from an old grocery place I guess nobody knows about – wrongly named, so old and ugly that the owner must be surprised people finally come to buy things from his place.

I need to drink water; my throat is feeling funny.
