Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

Defense, done and dusted!


I'm finally done with my thesis defense! And unofficially graduated. There is some paperwork left to be done, but otherwise I'm well on my way! Just thought I'll leave a quick note here, in case you are wondering where I am. I considered putting up a bookish post today, but realized I was too tired to type anything intellectual right now. So, instead, I'll return back tomorrow! :) Thanks everyone for your good luck wishes!

If it was a thesis defense then you must have finished the big kahuna (PhD)!

My hat goes off to you Aths. It is the best feeling in the world; one I hope to experience one day.
