Work on Vacation

Tuesday, June 2, 2020

It's now the first of June, travel restrictions remain in force, and I still can't return to the Philippines. While everybody else has gone back to work or are working from home, I've started working remotely from here in Costa Rica. It's like working while on an outrageously long vacation.

Back in March, while packing for my trip, the thought of bringing a laptop or even a tablet never crossed my mind. Why would it when I knew I would only need my phone to take photos? Now I rely on my phone for everything: I use it to work on lengthy, complicated spreadsheets; to make contracts, timetables, project briefs, training designs; to respond to emails and all other messages; to review curriculums and online lessons and assesments. It takes some getting used to, but I think I've adapted well enough. I may not be as efficient as I used to be, yet I still can get things done.
