White privilige

Ik heb heel lang getwijfeld of ik deze blogpost ging publiceren of niet. Het overlijden van George Floyd in Amerika heeft gezorgd voor een golf aan verontwaardiging en demonstraties over de hele wereld om aandacht te vragen voor de diverse vormen van racisme die nog steeds overal plaatsvinden.Voor mijn gevoel buitelden actualiteitenprogramma’s, talkshows, bekende en onbekende Nederlanders over elkaar heen om te laten zien dat ze er mee bezig zijn of waren. Heeft het nut dat ik er op deze blog ook nog eens mijn zegje over ga doen?

Staying at home – part 2

When we started the intelligent lockdown at the beginning of March, I was enthusiastic. I didn’t have to go to the office so early every day with all the associated struggles of being a night owl. I was able to set the alarm an hour later and still have enough time to get washed and dressed in front of the laptop in time for work. And because I now had more time to spare, I could finally spend more time on my hobbies, my blog, my household, and all those things that had been on my to-do list for far too long.

Staying at home

How are you all? Is staying at home working for you? I have to say that the situation we are in now feels quite unreal at times. That I wake up in the morning and it takes a few moments before I realize that we are still in quite a crisis and that it may still be a while last before it’s over. We stick to the request to stay indoors as much as possible, but that has never been such a problem for us. We’ve been practicing social distancing for years ;).
