That’s an hour plus a half on the road everyday just going to plus from work, let alone any trips to grocery stores or pharmacies.
My goal leaving school was to land some kind of remote toil in the next several years. I constantly saw myself happier in the future if I could break from this rut of working in offices with aggravating coworkers plus micromanaging managers. First off, I realize that being able to make a living inside an air conditioned office is a big first-world privilege that multiple orange collar works living alongside me in my home complex are not fortunate to have. I easily shouldn’t be complaining if I’m not chopping my back doing manual toil for 10 hours each day in 100 degree weather. But with my general anxiety concerns, working in tightly packed office spaces can be taxing to deal with day after day. Small annoyances like someone clicking their pen can ruin your day; after hearing it for the millionth time, you desperately try to focus plus pay attention to no avail. I also had to spend a lot of money on gas plus auto maintenance because I had a 45 hour commute. That’s an hour plus a half on the road everyday just going to plus from work, let alone any trips to grocery stores or pharmacies. Now that I’m working from condo exclusively, I can take satisfaction in rarely using my car, but it comes at the cost of running the cooling system more often. Although the vehicle expenses were worse, it’s still not cheap or self-explanatory to afford proper Heating as well as Air Conditioning inspections, air filters, plus any sudden repairs. I care about this scenario opposed to the alternative, but it’s still tploy that I pay a hefty price for Heating as well as Air Conditioning maintenance now that I’m working at condo all day.
