It is proven! I am calcifer on Keybase: https://keybase.io/calcifer/sigchain#a702c903fbb1f7b53572bd44e1fd89837bbb184853056b08fd9b9ee747a327150f
Gotta say I appreciate my employer a ton, and anytime things are tough I get solid reminders why I like them.
Our offices has been closed for weeks. As in: badges are disabled, stay the fuck home.
Our CEO told everyone it's ok to be less productive, and that taking care of family is everyone's first priority
She also reminds everyone regularly not to overwork, to take time off when we want or need it, and not to be shy about asking for help and accommodation
This should be the norm
COVID-19 MN details
Governor is talking supply chain and converting stadiums and hotels into ICU, build up necessary equipment and supplies, but that takes time. Goal of restrictions is to buy that time. Says they’ll monitor situation, but short of an effective treatment or vaccine, will likely not shorten.
It’s so nice to see government listening to experts and working with scientists and engineers to understand impacts of possible courses of action.
Gitlab converts © ™ and ® into emoji in documentation. So that’s fun!
Make a good self care plan. Not having to shower before you go to work can easily become forgetting to shower all day. Or more. Keep the routine you have already, even if you have to modify it a little. You’ll feel better. Don’t forget things like the coffee breaks and such that you use for “me time” at work! #wfh
As an integrator, you don’t need strong separation between work and personal; they blur. If you’re not used to bringing this home though, it can lead to overwork or over-distraction. Have a strategy to make sure you get adequate breaks and that the breaks don’t turn into multi-hour game marathons. This gets easier once your habits adapt #wfh
I’ve noticed a lot of work from home advice — of which there’s a lot right now as more people are being asked to do so — is focused on people who are at least somewhat extroverted and are “separators” (they need or want clear lines between work and personal lives)
As an introverted “integrator” who has worked remotely the better part of a decade, allow me to provide alternatives (and please feel free to ask questions here or in DM!)
I’ll tag all of these as #wfh for work from home
And the official weights are in, 5.0 oz exactly. Woot.
