Distractions and Chaos
Natalie Calo's Cat, Kiki. Doing homework in a chaotic territory that is shadowed by a furry friend. Taken May 11, 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Though this photo may seem simple and cute, the picture holds a deeper meaning. It shows that at home, we are exposed to a different space in which a stable work ethic is hard to achieve. Many homes are filled with love, life, and fun but when we chose or are forced to work in this environment, we are faced with the distractions that once brought us joy. This picture is a prime and personal example for what working at home meant to me. I was surrounded by things that brought me joy and fun when I needed to stay serious. With those who have pets, doing work in an environment that was accompanied by a furry friend who had a mind of their own was risky. At any moment they could distract you and take your mind away from work. It could turn from a neat desk to a chaotic clutter in a blink of an eye. This is what working during the pandemic looked like for me: Natalie Calo.
