Hello my friends,
Benjamin here, checkin in. I sincerely hope that you are hangin' in there right now on this Good Friday!
I've always been curious about why it's called "Good Friday". Based off of what I learned about Jesus and what happened to him on the cross this day, for me personally, it's tough to call it "good".
Feeling curious, I found a short article online from the BBC which was interesting to me. It gave a few different reasons for the title. According to the article, some suggest the day is "good" as in "holy", some speculate it may be a corruption of "God's Friday", and the dictionary states that it "refers to a day or season of religious observance"
On a different note, I am starting to get used to the "working from home" thing....although, I'll be quite honest, it's been a tough transition. For those of you who know me well, you probably know that I like to run around a lot. "Homebody" has never really been a word that I felt best characterized me...
But, here I am.
THREE weeks later, I think I've finally accepted some of the pros of being a "homebody". And, I must say - it's been nice. I am fortunate in the fact that I can stay at home, working my job, and although I could complain about the rate of pay, I'm still receiving a paycheck.
Also, the fact that I'm not wasting money on gas, eating out, and other expenses, has led me to be more aware of my own spending habits. It's been over THREE weeks since I've had carry out. In hindsight, I have been quite impulsive when it comes to eating out. :-)
BUT HAVE NO FEAR, I WILL support local food...but for now, I am realizing that I need to practice these limits of my spending habits.
