Over the past few months I've written various posts about Clubhouse. I wrote about how it had had grown but also my thoughts on the future. Over the past month or so it seems that Clubhouse has fallen. I believe it to be because the app came out whilst many of us were in lockdown. … Continue reading The rise and fall of Clubhouse
The old normal
Lockdown allowed us to fantasise about the possibilities of life. The way that things were was no longer seen as the way that things had to be. The longer we were inside the more we began to speak of the new normal. We were able to imagine changes on scales small and large. I think … Continue reading The old normal
What do you gain when working from home?
For a large group of people they've spent most at least 4 months of the year working from home. They've had to adjust and adapt to a new environment whilst still maintaining the same work output that would be delivered in the office. Despite the difficulties I think everyone gains something working from home. For … Continue reading What do you gain when working from home?
Reflecting on the past 3 months
The past few months have been something none of us could have ever anticipated. It's been challenging, sad, stressful and at times overwhelming. Times like this are perfect for reflection because we've all been reminded how short life is and how tomorrow isn't promised. Our day to day have all changed in some way. We've … Continue reading Reflecting on the past 3 months
How the pandemic has influenced what I write about?
Over the past few weeks I've been reflecting on how what I write about has changed.

I'd do my best to plan ahead and have my posts scheduled for 7.30am each morning. But once lockdown started my day to day life changed significantly. I was no longer … Continue reading How lockdown changed my writing routine?
Post-lockdown in the office
I've recently had a few conversations about going back to work and what that will look like. For some that worked in offices they were able to continue at home whilst for others things grounded to a halt and have remained so for the past couple of months. From the way things look, it appears … Continue reading Post-lockdown in the office
In an ideal world
That's a phrase often used when you're in a defeated mindset. It is often followed by something that we don't think is possible. e.g. In an ideal world we would be able to overcome these injustices. If in an ideal world us as society, as humanity would be able to overcome the injustices then why … Continue reading In an ideal world
Things that help
Just a little reminder for whenever you get overwhelmed with everything that is going on. It can be easy to forget how far you've come or all the helpful things that you've learnt. Going for a walk - I think this must be one of the most popular things that people do to clear their … Continue reading Things that help
A taste of normality
Right now a lot of people are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, the slow return to normalcy. Granted it'll be a long time until things are back to how they were but as they say 'slow progress is better than no progress'. This normality will be positive for some … Continue reading A taste of normality
