Today I struggled to motivate myself to work from home. We’re on this ‘voluntary basis’ right now, and no one volunteered to go in today. And so because no one else was going in, I chose not to either. I didn’t want to be in the office alone. That’s almost worse than working from home.
I think because I’ve been in the office basically every day for a month, I’d begun to readjust. But yesterday was the first day I’ve worked at home again in, well, yeah… almost a month. I just said that.
Transitioning from normal office working to working from home at the start of lockdown was difficult, but after a while I kind of got used to it. There was a flow, and a routine, and I figured out how to make the most out of it. I’ve lost that flow now. And I’m probably going to have to learn to get it back.
Now cases are rising. Barometer’s getting low. According to all sources, the street’s the place to g–oh no wait, the we’re not allowed on the street. We have to stay home again. Sorry about that.
I’m going to go back in the office tomorrow because I can. Though at some point, someone is going to tell me that I can’t. And then I’m going to have to teach myself to readjust again.
Until tomorrow, it’s okay, I did it once before.
