Working From Home

working_from_home

Over the last few months I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work from home. At this point in the game – re:life – I realize that almost every situation of life has it’s pros and cons. You might be at Disney World but be in a line. You might be at a job you hate, but there could be free coffee and good friends, you might be in New York City but your feet really hurt. I truly believe that life is more about perspective and finding the right outlook rather than finding the perfect job, location, or situation. Thank goodness, too because David starts his interviews for GI fellowship today and we very well could be in Timbuktu come next July….. And I would be there with bells on. #LetsDoIt

With that being said, I’ve had the opportunity to work from home for the last 6 months and have really enjoyed the shift from office job to home job. As a night owl, I fully appreciate the slow mornings and, above all, love being able to work with Nilla by my side or in my lap. Those velvet ears bring me so much joy.

Setting the coffee pot to go off 30 minutes before I’m up is definitely one of life’s little luxuries. I always feel like I have a personal butter, when really it’s just a perk of living in 2016. Getting dressed in “real clothes” vs. a t-shirt helps me set a productive tone for the day. Mixing up my work station (re: moving to the couch or another room) sometimes breathes a bit of fresh air into the work day. And going for a walk, especially in Chapel Hill where there are so many gorgeous murals, helps give an added boost too – that and reaching for a diet coke.

Dinner is not usually fancy – fish or chicken with vegetables – but I definitely cook more since working from home. Or at least have the time to buy a cheesecake and decorate it with raspberries and powder sugar for a shower 😉 Girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do! And even if we decide to have a date night and I have to send a last minute email – I’m still thankful for the chance to work from home.
