My first experience working at home was spectacular! I slept an extra hour, and felt incredibly rested. Plus, I didn’t have to drive 35 minutes to get to work in the morning or 45 minutes to get home. Also, I could eat whatever snacks I pleased, which is completely different than when I’m at work. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to get all my work done because of distractions but that wasn’t the case at all. It was actually EASIER to get things completed, if you can believe that. I’m guessing that’s true because:
1. Life in pajamas is much better than life in jeans
2. My home chair is so comfortable
3. I’m very used to working with my laptop
4. I can listen to music as I work
Working from home won’t ever be the norm, unfortunately, but at least I got to live it once. Paul, on the other hand, is having a field day. Not only was his night class canceled on Tuesday, all classes were canceled today, as well as tomorrow. So where is he right now? At the bar with his friends. I’m so jealous!
Here are a couple pictures I managed to snap of the snow this morning:
Pandora was really, really good to me today, too. Maybe that’s why I got so much work done? Anyway, I’ve only created three radio stations on Pandora. One contains rap and hip-hop, the second contains girl rock and third is all about my favorite old school rock-n-roll and ’90s rock. Here are some of the songs I got from that third station today:
Fortune Faded – Red Hot Chili Peppers
Bitter Sweet Symphony – The Verve
Shine – Collective Soul
Soul to Squeeze – Red Hot Chili Peppers
Polly – Nirvana
Plush – Stone Temple Pilots
Everlong – Foo Fighters
House of the Rising Sun – The Animals
Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin
I Heard It Through the Grapevine – Creedence Clearwater Revival
Interstate Love Song – Stone Temple Pilots
Sunshine of Your Love – Eric Clapton
Free Bird – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty
Where Is My Mind – Pixies
Today – Smashing Pumpkins
In Bloom – Nirvana
Like A Stone – Audioslave
Voodoo Child – Jimi Hendrix
Dance Little Sister – The Rolling Stones
Now that’s music right there! 🙂
Looks like I’ll be heading in to work tomorrow, but we’re going out to lunch, so I’m pretty excited for that. Girls night was canceled for tonight. Boo! But, one of my best friends actually shares a backyard with me, so she’s going to try to make her way through the igloos and snow mounds so we can catch up on Jersey Shore!
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
Have you ever worked from home before? What kind of music do you listen to? Favorite bands?
