Hi folks! This week we talk about the things we are doing in our “not work” times to keep ourselves from losing it while Social Distancing/Quarantining here at home. We talk about the people who are discovering new hobbies, like ours, and the ones who are finding out that gardening or keeping chickens is not for them. We wrap up this week by talking to Brooke “Bo” Bolander, about how she stays productive!

This week we will recap the reasons to do an off-site and why it is a good idea to disconnect sometimes. Our Wombat Test Subject speaks to when she is most productive, how Bullet Journals are just not for her, and why almost everyone we know who is in a creative field is running behind right now. Finally, we have a really good (but noisy) interview with freelance UX designer Dylan Wilbanks.
And for the record, I wimped out on harassing the anti-abortion protesters. They just weren’t all that confrontational.
