How to Have a Snow Day When You’re An Adult

How to Have a Snow Day When You’re An Adult

IT’S SNOWING! I haven’t had a snow day since I was 17, but I also didn’t have to go into my office job today and was going to work from home regardless. Not remotely fair, and the desire to curl up with a book is immense. The snuggle struggle is real, you guys. But I have money to make and a university course to pass, so I loaded up some podcasts and have ended up having an unusually productive day? Maybe being locked inside the house with a foot of snow on the ground is a good way to focus haha. So here is how to have a snow day as an adult!

Step 1: Ughh. Just get it together.

I got showered and dressed and put perfume on to get into ‘the work mood’, which is weird because I never wear perfume when I work from home. Clearly that should change.

Step 2: Do your physio.

Wait, that’s just me.

Step 3: Chain yourself to your desk!

Shit I’ve done so far: some market research for Etsy, a section of my course (I’m studying women’s suffrage and hellooooo the only thing I’ll ever talk about at dinner parties ever again), cleared out some of my emails and done some graphic design. One of the designs is for this very blog’s sidebar:

The other is a cool Heroes of Olympus-inspired poster I’ve wanted to do for ages:

Step 4: But take lots of breaks to make a cup of tea and stare at your snowy garden!

Do you want to build a snowman? Yes. Do you want to go outside? No.

Step 5: Check your dogs are still alive

Both dogs refused to go outside this morning. Fred inspected the garden at midday and Donnie chanced it about half an hour ago. They have the right idea.

Step 6: Rinse and repeat until 5pm

Or whenever you normally clock off when you work from home!

YOU’RE WELCOME. I have to go and do some more physio now. I might also build a snowman.

Guys, the Internet’s Snowing!

So, today’s the second of December, which means two things:

  • Indifferent Ignorance will be snowing until January
  • We can watch this without feeling creepy:

On the downside, I have to go Christmas shopping with a grand total of five pounds to my name. Don’t expect anything fancypants this year, guys… You might get quite a few homemade gifts. Like, er, ‘The Twelve Haikus of Christmas’, or ‘Once Upon a Time In Bethlehem’.

Please don’t make me write either of the above.

Hopefully, maybe, possibly, I might get to write lots of cool stuff soon-ish. I really hope so, at least, I quite miss spamming you all…

**UPDATE**

I just remembered what I wanted to blog about all day! In my Physics mock today, there was a question about circles or something, I don’t know, and it discussed a guy called Frank riding a carosel. All I could think of for a good ten seconds was this:

I’m not spending hours on Google finding the 10000s of memes people came up with… Here’s a good starting point.

Introducing Agent S.

  I made her this afternoon after we got let out of school early because it started to snow. Honestly, this country has lost all its backbone since the war… But enough about the weather; meet Agent S., the newest Killjoy to grace my back garden and fight in a zone:

 

                                                           

                                                                   

  After I had frozen most appendages rolling snow, I made cakes with Danger Days playing, helping me keep beat as I battled with sugar. Apart from discovering the flour ran out in August, nothing too bad happened. Well, my plan for blood-red icing got foiled because the food colouring expired in May. And the sprinkles exploded onto the counter so I couldn’t use many of them. But nothing else.
