Hi! Dusting off the blog to ask a community question:
If you teleconference at home, do you check out your outfit and background on your set-up's camera before you start your day?
I check to see if my top is see-through or looks weird, and I look at the background to make sure there aren't any wadded up tissues or other visible evidence that I'm not a great housekeeper.
We spent time last weekend making the room behind me look as neutral and professional as possible.
Not shown: the side table overwhelmed by nebulizer paraphenalia, and my purse and the file boxes.
So, questions. Do you do this? And also, do you think the pajama shirt I'm wearing in the top picture is okay for professional video conferencing?
Finally, here's a picture of the Sargasso Sea I took when we went on a cruise to Bermuda in 2018. When I'm feeling penned in now, I just look at that horizon and breathe deeply (or as deeply as my asthma lets me.)
Yes. It really was that blue.
