Journal Entry #020

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

I feel like I’m crushing my 2020 goals except for any goals that are related to blogging! Blogging is such a big outlet for me and is one of my all time favourite hobbies but I find myself just ignoring it and coming on every once in a blue moon. I get pings on my phone from the WP app saying so so has commented or replied back to me, and I try my best to reply back but I swipe the notification away and then after 2 months, I feel like it’d be very weird to reply back, haha.

I say this everytime, and while I am doing great with my other goals, I really want to be more accountant for my blogging so I’ve set up a manual habit tracker in my bullet journal to blog a bit more… sounds pretty nerdy, eh? I have soooooo many posts to catch up on so there really shouldn’t be an excuse of lack of things to blog about.

It’s been nearly a month since my work has switched to working from home (we were proactive and started a week earlier than most companies). It’s a new routine and I love how much time I save on my commute but it’s so lonely. Dan was home for 2 weeks before returning to work so it’s just Summer and myself at home all day with the occasional team conference calls. Work has its ups and downs with terms of business so there are days when I find myself just watching YT videos or online window shop and then there are days that are busy, I find myself working later than my usual hours just to catch up on the inbox.

Also, I miss my barre classes so much! I’m currently on the trial for Obe Fitness and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I did a cardio kickboxing class that left me sore for 2 days, and then a dance workout, and a quick butt workout. I like the vast majority of it, and how it’s only 28 minutes but you’re dying at the end of it but I haaaate the things they shout and how they shout attendee’s names. I wouldn’t mind it if I was live but I only do the on-demand classes so it feels weird listening to the instructor go “Yaaaay, Robin is in the house!, Let’s gooooo Sandra!”. Not to mention it costs $27 USD per month which is maybe just under $35 CAD? It’s not the end of the world, but I’m during a time like this, I don’t want to add to my monthly expenses.

Anyways, I just wanted to mark it down on my tracker and cross it off my planner to say that I’m back in blogging game and want to be more accountable for this 😛

Happy April Fool’s Day!

  1. Happy to know you’re back! Thanks for sharing how home office has been working out for you ☺️ I work in finance and I am also working from home for 1 month ago. I have been having lots of work and in termos of accounting this is the busiest period for us as the closing of the fiscal year is soon approaching (end of April). 😬 Anyway, I have actually been really enjoying the experience so far. 🙃


    1. Thank you for reading! I’m happy to be back catching up on blogs again 🙂 Oh boy, the Finance team is buried with year end as well, but given what is going, they’re also pushing hard and having all hands on deck to collect outstanding invoices to keep the business afloat until this dies out. They’re just completely swamped. I work in HR and noticed that despite the virus, we’re still getting slammed with new contracts and onboarding workers. Super weird and busy times!

      I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying the WFH experience! It does have its little perks :3


  2. I have the same struggle with blogging! But since we’re all working from home now, I’m trying to work more on my blog & be more disciplined about it. 😅 Looking forward to reading more from you!
