Working from home gives me freedoms I haven’t really appreciated before. No one can see me when I’m on the phone, so I have the freedom to roll my eyes when certain annoying people go on and on unnecessarily about something. I have the freedom to drop my head into my hands. I have the freedom to shout at my computer when certain emails come in or to walk away or to pace during phone calls or even make tea during meetings. I can get actual WORK done during meetings that don’t require my full attention without appearing rude or self-important.
My self-control during the two days I was in the office, after a year and 9 months of freedom, was, if I may say so myself, impressive.
And I am SO GLAD to be home.
