A year of remote

March 23rd is another anniversary of sorts for me, as one year ago remote work began in earnest - and I'm still following the same protocols today for safety.  

I'm grateful for the roles I've had and institutions that have kept individuals safe while still providing needed support for campus entities. 

Hoping that the pandemic continues to subside and we are all able to resume regular activities soon!  It's been 480 days since my last overseas trip...I'm ready for travel to be back.

It's been one full year since I've flown...

A bit of a sad anniversary today for me, March 1st marking the last time I was on a plane in over a year!  One year ago I was on my way to Educause ELI in Seattle before Covid shut down most of the area and the conference cancelled while I was transiting to my next gate at SFO.  It didn't make sense to keep going to Seattle, so I went to customer service and changed my ticket back to Newark.  It ended up being a day long trip across the country and my last transcon.  

We're making progress in fighting Covid and I'm hopeful that I will be able to fly again soon.  Most European countries are still closed so it may take a while to have worldwide travel ramp up quickly.
