I have been at home since yesterday taking an online course which will last until the end of the week.
This is my very first experience “working” from home.
I never really thought about working from home before BUT these couple of days being home have me pondering. Granted I believe part of this is because the course is run like big business.
Right now I work for a small company. I got to work for 9-ish and stay until 5-ish with usually only a 20-30 minute lunch break (unless it’s all you can eat sushi lunch day ;)). Big business starts at 9, goes for a 15 minute morning break, then a 1 hour lunch break followed by another 15 minute afternoon break.
Since I am at home, I use my 1 hour lunch break to workout. 🙂 Then I eat my lunch while sitting on my couch in front of my computer listening to the instructor.
I can see him, he can’t see me in my mismatched sweats and crazy hair. I’m sure he’s thankful for that.
I am really enjoying “working” from home. I am now more open to looking at work from home opportunities or at least suggesting I telecommute.
Getting paid to be home in my sweats/pyjamas rocks.
Why didn’t anyone tell me about this before?
