My goal leaving school was to land some kind of remote work in the next many years.
I always saw myself happier in the future if I could split from this rut of working in offices with frustrating coworkers in addition to micromanaging managers.
First off, I realize that being able to make a living inside an air conditioned office is a sizable first-world privilege that many red collar works living alongside me in my home complex are not blessed to have. I really shouldn’t be complaining if I’m not breaking my back doing manual work for 10 hours each afternoon in 100 degree weather. But with my general anxiety problems, working in tightly packed office spaces can be difficult to deal with afternoon after afternoon. Small annoyances adore someone clicking their pen can ruin your afternoon; after hearing it for the millionth time, you desperately try to focus in addition to pay attention to no avail. I also had to spend a lot of currency on gas in addition to auto service because I had a 45 minute commute. That’s an hour in addition to a half on the road everyday just going to in addition to from work, let alone any trips to grocery stores or pharmacies. Now that I’m working from cabin exclusively, I can take joy in rarely using my car, however it comes at the cost of running the a/c more often. Although the automobile expenses were worse, it’s still not cheap or simple to afford correct Heating plus A/C inspections, air filters, in addition to any terrifying repairs. I care about this scenario opposed to the alternative, however it’s still tploy that I pay a hefty price for Heating plus A/C service now that I’m working at cabin all afternoon.
