Life since Monday

I've had a revelation:

I really, really need people in my day to day life. Working from home has not been great for me. Put me in a cubicle environment again and I'm talking my neighbors to death.

Even if the drive sucks and the gas prices are going to send me to the poor house, I am having fun working along side people again. Hearing the hum of hallway conversations is making me smile.

Even yesterday, bored to tears because I had no computer access, I enjoyed the workplace. I'm so weird.

Still trying to figure out my schedule and finding time to do stuff. Maybe soon will write a real post....

Life may not continue swimmingly but I think this slice is looking up.

You really need to enjoy being by yourself all the time to work at home -- and I think after awhile it can be bad for your mental health. Believe me, I know...

LOL, Neil. I know what you mean. I am setting myself up to work from home, but it will not be everyday (just a few days a week) - I am looking forward to getting away from the irritating chatter that breaks my concentration at work. Isolation can be discomforting, too, but for now I look foward to it.

Neil - I would expect being a writer would mean enjoying the solitude. I'm not surprised you manage so well, mental health and all.... ;)

My0p- I used to plug in headphones and listen to the radio when I needed a chatter break. I hope you get the break you need.
