Working from house was something I typically desired when I was still in an office; Well, life has a funny way of giving us what my pal and I believe my pal and I need.
The pandemic changed everything and I found myself working from house full time. At first, it was great, and I got to relax and not participate in the office madness, however, a few months into it, I easily missed my colleagues and hanging out after work. Then, my boss announced my position was fully remote. I only needed to go to the office once a month once people were back. I wasn’t sure how to feel about this change in my job situation. I even thought of quitting and finding a job that I could go to every morning. That thought hit me taxing because I realized I never absolutely liked remote work. The last nail on that coffin was when my heat pump failed in the summer time of 2022. I had been at house tied up at labor in my office, and I was dripping with sweat so much. Opening the windows provided no relief because the temperature outside was almost 100F. I had contacted a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker to come and service my heat pump, however there was a line of people ahead of me. I had to wait 24 hours to have the heat pump fixed, and I wasn’t having a fun time. When the heat in my office got to be too much, I chose to go labor in a cafe in my section that has excellent AC! Perhaps I’ll look for a job in an office with proper commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C cooling in the near future.
