I made some notes about the experience, which I plan to include in my ongoing anthropological study of office life vs. my actual life. I find it helpful to compare and contrast the activities I participated in at the office with my usual work from home routine.
Lest you fear to join me on this journey into oft-charted waters, let me assure you of this: I wore pants the whole time.
|Activity||Working from Home||Working at the Office|
|Getting to work|| || |
|Meetings|| || |
|Bathroom breaks||Frequent and lengthy, due to variety of enticing reading material||Rare and harried, due to there being one single seater for 60 women|
|Lunch||Good days: Leftovers, salad, sandwich, Daily Show |
Bad days: Chips
|Good days: Delicious meal at nice restaurant|
Bad days: Harvey's (still pretty good)
|Work||Far less slackery than you might expect||Oh, hell yes|
|Distractions|| || |
|Getting home from work|| || |
|Nickname assigned by boss||Redacted||"Poopsie"|
|Less than stellar moments||Injuring my shoulder while punching the air and chair-dancing to Eye of the Tiger||Using my own blog as an example in my Windows Live Writer presentation. The client informs me that "Rock Out With Your Cock Out" is not a category they use on their corporate blog.|
|Triumphs|| || |
Please note that this is only the first draft of my report. I hope to produce the definitive work on the subject. Stay tuned for my next anthropological study entitled: Pants. Why?
