Alone Together

Resources to help me through all this change

Here We Are

Alone Together is a series I initiated at the beginning of the pandemic of 2020. In part to cope, in part to collect resources for myself, and connect it back to my life. I hope to continue to build on this in the future.

Sharing is Caring

My employment ended at the early days of the pandemic. I hoped that documenting resources, would help me process what was happening in the world around me. Feeling the uncertainty for our health, economies and societies.

In he spirit of “We’re alone, but we’re in this together”, I’m sharing information, regarding different topics that can potentially change dramatically in the upcoming years.

For the sake of organizing, I’ve divided a collection of ideas and resources up into four categories. I hope this can be useful to someone. And if you have any suggestions, I would love to read them in the comments.

Protecting ourselves and the people around us, from spreading the virus. It’s staying grounded when everything is changing. How to stay connected to our communities and the people we love. And how work life will be altered.

Digital Overload

Most of our conversations, the news and daily lives are about the pandemic. Voices of both hope and fear, flooding the news and social media. This is my attempt to try to process and deal with the rapid changes in our world.

I worry how this information overload is impacting my mental well-being. The reason for this is that, while I usually am someone who loves being at home, I now have this urge to get out and connect.

It’s hard to avoid the conversations about things “going back to normal”. But I may be pessimistic, but it’s hard for me to imagine that after living with this for months, maybe a year or more, that things can go back to normal. Because the experience that we have now will change us for the rest of our lives.
