Today is the third anniversary of the day I left the office at my federal contracting job like:
That means it’s been three years of working from home. Three years of being home more or less alone all day, hanging with the family in the evening, seeing friends on the weekends. As an introvert, I’ve grown accustomed to this level of human contact and have come to prefer it.
So imagine the abrupt adjustment needed to go to my team’s meetup last week and live with my coworkers, most of whom I had never met in person, in a rented house for a week.
I feel like I’m going to spend some part of Monday staring at the wall.
There is nothing quite like living with semi-strangers you work with for a week to throw all your weird quirks and habits into sharp relief.
