It’s possible that we have to work from home for well over a month due to COVID19.
I used to work from home when I was freelancing in my late teens. I couldn’t find the separation between work and play.
I get really restless when I have to sit at a desk for 8+ hours Not even moving around to talk to people or go to meetings is basically my hell. With video calling being more prevalent, you can’t really walk and take a phone call anymore.
The hardest thing for me is that I have to set working hours for myself. I have to stick to this. No breaks except for lunch. If I don’t do that, I will never stop half-working, half-playing.
This also cuts into my study schedule. It is basically impossible to look at a code editor after working remotely for 8 hours. I think I can still continue reading books (but I had a very ambitious schedule that I may cut in half now), but all studying relating to direct coding (ie Java) is called off until further notice. I need distance.
Let’s hope this is over quickly, for more reasons than this whining. It’s been a really dour 2 weeks.
