So my “new” job is coming up on three months now. And it’s working with a big corporation and we do have an office in Manhattan. However, I and the rest of my direct division work from home. I don’t have to visit clients or physically interact with people.
At first I thought that would be unpleasant, not being able to go over to someone’s desk and ask questions. Not being able to have office banter. I thought my working relationships would suffer greatly and that I’d feel lonely and removed. I originally thought I’d still go into the office a couple days every week just to interact with people. But now, I can honestly say…
WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?
I don’t have to commute. For me it would be on the subway. An HOUR each way. TWO HOURS EVERY WEEKDAY. Now I can’t exactly sleep late, my body wakes up around 7am on its own. But now I have time to run a mile most mornings. My endurance is now such that I no longer run out of breath walking up stairs.
Oh yeah, health. IT’S ON!
And I take NAP at lunchtime. You read correctly: SIESTAAAAAAAA!!! My managers encourage taking a full hour for lunch so the opportunity presented itself and I beat the crap out of that hot iron. Oh yeah. Work/life balance!
A 20-30 minute power nap in the middle of the day! This is fricking AWESOME. I’m very very thankful!
