Most people I know think that working from home is easy. I mean, why wouldn’t they think that, right? When working from home, you get to wear your lingerie (or that boring pyjamas) all day long without having to worry about your hair too. There’s no sitting next to super annoying people on the bus who talk loudly or play their mega annoying ringing tone that you felt like strangling them sometimes. No battling with rush-hour jams. No office gossips (or being the office gossip victim). No kissing your boss’ butt. You can take a break anytime you want. You can go to the fridge and fix yourself some sandwich without having to share it with your co-workers who’s constantly hungry beyond limit. You get to shop online 24/7, buying gift cards for your loved ones. You also get to play your favorite CD as loud as you can, even singing along with it (or dance!) with only your underwear and no one will suggest your name to the mental hospital.
Yes, it’s true that working at home has many advantages. However, if you’re a person who loves having people around you to
gossip talk to, working alone could get you to feel oh so lonely at times. I used to work in an office for many years where I get to mingle around with my co-workers a lot. We talked a lot. We eat a lot. We fight a lot. And now that I’m working from home, it gets really silent and lonely most of the times. Chatting online doesn’t give the same feeling as actually having SOMEONE to talk to in real.
Bunny just left for work and here I am, staring at my Notebook trying to type something into this blog. I’m listening to the radio with the volume turned to almost the max – but I’m not dancing in my underwear, yet. I just had nasi campur so I don’t think dancing with a full tummy is a good idea – unless I want to look like I’m suffering from bulimia.
The cat’s making a lot of noise already. Time to get him out of the cage and feed him.
Ahhh.. the joy of working from home.
