Back To Work… Kinda

Tomorrow is the first time since the UK lockdown started that I’m going to work. In fact, it’s going to be the first time since then to ride the train.

I have technically been working this whole time but from home. Mostly online training and check-ins. I am not going to lie, I miss proper work. I miss my co-workers, our regulars and the work itself.

I have even run out of our official training content so I started taking online courses on Future Learn as recommended by one of my superiors. I have also taken this opportunity to do some personal courses. Such as fiction writing, poetry and even one about morals in fairy tales.

Tomorrow is my induction to where I will be placed for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, it seems that I won’t start properly until about the middle of September. Even then I will only work in the office for six hours a week and need to make up the rest of my time with online work.

Still, it’s a start.

My only real concern is travel. To get there, I need to take two trains. Again, I haven’t been on any public transport in months. I am naturally a very paranoid person at the best of times, let alone during a pandemic.

I will take all the necessary precautions of course, but me being me, I am nervous. I suppose it’s just a matter of getting into the habit. Just like getting used to wearing a mask when I go to the shops and following one way systems.

If you had told me this time last year that I would be this stoaked to go to work one day, I would have laughed in your face. Yet, here we are. I have already sorted out an outfit and prepped one of my nicer bags for the day.

I am looking forward to seeing my co-workers again. This feels like the first step forward for getting back into semi-normality for me.

Wish me luck!

  1. This is really great news to hear for you. I am really happy for you that you are going back to work even if it is just in a limited fashion right now.

    I think nervousness would be expected from anyone riding public transport. But like you said it will become habit and the nervousness will go away. Besides wearing a face mask, I would suggest taking some hand sanitizer with you. That way you can sanitize your hands especially after finishing riding the trains.

    I wish you good luck and look forward to hearing how it went 🙂
