Thank you to all the kind people who emailed me. You’re too much. And thank you to those who gave suggestions and helped me clarify my thoughts a bit.
To be clear, it’s not (just) the comments that have got me down. Here’s a notification I received last week from my computer:
As you may know, I’m a college teacher. It’s a great job and a privilege, but it has meant spending a lot more time on screens since the pandemic began. And, of course, when I’m not working, I’m often computing one thing or another.
I honestly find that screen time number hard to believe, but even if the number is off, I feel like I’ve been spending 12 hours online. I know I’m not alone!
Adding WestonWeb to that—well, honestly, it was too much. I just wasn’t doing as good a job as I think I should.
Anyway, I’m going to take another week off and try to get some more sun on my face. I hope you can, too.
