It’s April Fools, but I think the time we’re living in is a massive joke already so there’s no need to dwell on that, right? Anyway, this was my last proper “work outfit” before I started working from home. It’s simple, so I added some interest with my ladybird pin.

And because there is nothing else in the outfit to talk about: I finally got around to watching Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women (I was reminded of it because, of course, Lady Bird is also a Greta Gerwig movie starring Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chamalet.) Maybe I’m partial to the 1994 version with Winona Ryder and Christian Bale (even the 1949 version with June Allyson and Peter Lawford isn’t bad), but I found this version kind of… boring. I appreciate the attempt to make Laurie + Amy make sense, but I’m still not entirely convinced (I’m a steadfast Laurie + Jo shipper), and I think the non-linear structure robs the story of its emotional impact. Plus I absolutely hate the costume design (just because the Marches are poor doesn’t mean they have to be dressed like a bunch of ragamuffins and running around with their hair down and their pants showing.)

    How’s that working out for you, working at home?
    The other day, I had my very first virtual meeting at home with my co-workers. It was great seeing everyone again and nice to see everyone well.

    Keep on, Salazar! Stay safe.

      Most of my work is done on a computer anyway so it doesn’t matter where I am. My students just send me their works and I send them my feedback instead of giving them feedback in person, as simple as that. In fact, it’s better this way because I can be more detailed in my feedback and the students are not distracted in a classroom environment.

    Nice. It sounds like both you and your students can benefit from this current juncture.
    I just finished listening to a webinar (normally done on my computer at my job as part of my required training) and did it from the comforts of home. And ironically enough, the webinar was about how to work from home (setting up your office space, limiting distractions, etc.).
