We wanted to know what your work life was like during the quarantine and what adaptations you’ve made. Here’s another response, this one from Crystal Egli, Colorado Parks & Wildlife:
Working from home has been really challenging! I love my career as a videographer because I get to travel constantly, learn new things I never even thought about before, and meet new person after new person. Now I’m lucky if I travel from my living room to my home office!
All my video calls are with folks I’ve already met, and I become overly excited every time someone changes their background to a tropical scene or mountain vista. I find comfort in other artistic folks telling me that they too are losing creativity and focus without the constant change in scenery – the emotional solidarity makes me feel less isolated.
At the end of the day, my family is doing far better than many others out there, and my heart goes out to those it isn’t going well for. I am grateful to have “being antsy and losing creative drive” be the one major downfall in my life. So many are losing jobs, houses and lives. The world is going to be a different place when the virus runs its course, but I’m looking forward to connecting with people again, learning, travelling and creating art.
