Good afternoon everyone. I started sharing my thoughts regarding working from home in a series of Work from Home Diary posts. Feel free to share your work from home feelings in the comments section below. For today’s update, I wanted to talk about my quarantine buddy (Laura), our combined work space, and our daily routine.
I’m on week 4 of working from home, so I seem to have a good system in place. For the last few weeks, Laura has also been working from home. When I was home by myself, I preferred working upstairs in our guest room / home office. But now that Laura is home too, I decided to move down to the dining room table to work next to her. It is nice to work face to face with someone (even though we are working on completely different things) and I think it keeps us both accountable. I make sure she doesn’t spend all day on Facebook, Instagram or online shopping; she makes sure I don’t spend all day watching CNN (aka Coronavirus News Network) and reading travel blogs.
