|Exploring new ways to help people and businesses get online. |
Part of the job is to explore the many different ways that work
We've been in lockdown since...gosh, I don't know anymore. How long has it been? All I know is today is Monday because my messages and emails rudely woke me up and this only usually happens on a Monday when everyone's frantic to get things done.
We're hanging in there, in all honesty.
My older son is happy that his college assignments and tests are now conducted from the comfort of his tiny room.
My younger son has not been able to pop into the gym for his usual routine and is basically displaying signs of boredom that I wish I could help him with.
The good news is that:
- His guitar skills is getting better
- I think he's still sticking to learning Chinese (and maybe even Japanese) through online videos and classes
- He's been helping me out during dinner time
- My boys and I have been more collaborative in keeping the home clean and making dinner
- They're absolute gems when it comes to doing the grocery runs
- I'm getting back into the groove of a regulated working hour (I was under full employment before this) and I think I like it.
- More healthy, home-cooked food
- I've acquired new skills, i.e. unclogging the sink all by myself! This is a big deal because I would have otherwise called the plumber without this lockdown
- Saved money and time from all that traveling
I've also pumped some energy into working on my website:
The downside is that I've not been as disciplined about working out at home. I think I've gained ten thousand pounds since the lockdown. Thanks to me catching up with all those Netflix shows and Korean variety shows and dramas.
During such dreary times, I think it's important to keep an upbeat attitude. This can be a bad thing, I know, because upbeat people tend to think very little about real-life problems. But at the moment, I've (I am sure you'll agree with this too) had my fair share of horrible news not just from the TV but also from all social media platforms and my Whatsapp.
I've spent time writing my thoughts on my website and blogs with the latest update (apart from this one) being:
I am still learning the ropes of running a Medium publication but I've accepted articles from other Medium writers. The topic is of course none other than about digital marketing, social media management, life in a digital world, online advertising, and eCommerce.
You know what? Keeping yourself in a positive state of mind is a survival instinct.
In the meantime, here are some senseless updates from my Instagram.
And in the meantime, my shortform thoughts are still on Twitter.
Here's what I am thinking: One of the social networks I am on, possibly Linkedin, leaked my phone number out to people. My Whatsapp is exploding because people's been sending me unsolicited messages. Please, email me!— Marsha Maung ❤️💕💖😍🤣 (@marshamaung) April 25, 2020
Not that you're interested in how my life is going or anything, I'm no celeb but if you're interested, you can get email updates from this blog (which is regularly updated) by subscribing to this blog at the top section.
Let's keep in touch with each other and help each other stay sane until this whole worldwide catastrophe is over.
Sending you lots of love,
