71 Thoughts You Have When You Work From Home

"I DON'T HAVE TO PUT ON PANTS TODAY!"

Posted on

1. Nice — I get to work from home tomorrow.

2. I'm going to be so productive without the distractions of the office.

3. No boring meetings, no awkward small-talk in the bathroom.

4. And I'll be able to eat those leftovers from dinner instead of buying lunch!

5. OH YES I can set my alarm forward by a whole 30 minutes!

6. Hahaha morning commute, you can suck it.

7. Someone's going to be well-rested tomorrow.

8. Ah, time to get ready for a productive day.

9. Wait. I don't need to shower.

10. I don't even need to put on pants.

11. OMG PAJAMAS ALL DAY YAAASS.

12. I should probably still brush my teeth, though.

13. Dental hygiene doesn't take a day off.

14. OK, desk. You ready for this?

15. I'm comfy at my desk. I've got myself some coffee and a snack. This will be great.

16. Let's catch up on some emails.

17. Wow, already done — I really am being more productive.

18. I'll do some brainstorming for that new project.

19. Then I can start up on that new report.

20. I'm a ***master of working from home.

21. Wow, almost lunchtime already?

22. OK, I'll sign off for a bit to make myself a healthy meal.

23. A salad, perhaps?

24. Ugh, kind of wish I could get lunch from that burger place by the office.

25. Screw it. I'll just heat up a frozen meal.

26. I guess it couldn't hurt to turn on the TV while I eat.

27. Oooh, House Hunters marathon.

28. I'll just finish this one episode, then I'll get right back to work.

29. SHUT UP THEY DID NOT PICK HOUSE No. 2.

30. Wow. I might need to watch a little bit of the next episode to calm me back down.

31. (30 minutes later) Oh. Fuck. That episode just ended.

32. I really need to get back to work.

33. But the couch is so comfortable.

34. I could just bring my laptop over here...

35. Yes. brilliant. This is why working from home is the best.

36. OK, back to that project.

37. Ooh, I've got a great ide— OH WOW THIS IS COMFORTABLE.

38. Maybe I'll just lie down for a few minutes.

39. (20 minutes later) Fuck, did I really just zone out for 20 minutes?

40. Come on, me, get back to work.

41. Emails, emails. Look at me being productive.

42. Type type-y type. Typing away. Doing the things.

43. Hmm, wonder if that House Hunters marathon is still on.

44. It can't hurt to just have it on in the background, I guess.

45. Some people work better with background noise, so obviously I'm doing the right thing.

46. Shit. I just watched another entire episode without doing any work.

47. Maybe a change of scenery will do me good.

48. I'll go work at that coffee shop I've been meaning to try.

49. With all those people there, I won't be able to zone out.

50. This place looks fantastic.

51. Mmm, and this coffee is great. It will totally help me focus.

52. Wait, what's the Wi-Fi password here?

53. Back to work.

54. I can't screw around; I'm in the middle of the room and everyone can see me.

55. OH GOD I SWEAR THAT WAS A WORK EMAIL DON'T JUDGE THAT IMAGE.

56. Ooh, I'm a fan of this soft indie pop playlist.

57. How long am I allowed to stay here before I need to buy something else to justify taking up this table?

58. Because I feel like the barista is already looking at me funny.

59. FINE, BARISTA. I WILL LEAVE.

60. Back at home. Back to my desk so I can focus.

61. Only a couple more hours.

62. I'll get a snack out of the fridge to keep myself occupied.

63. The best thing about this is that I have a bathroom all to myself.

64. It's always so weird when you're in the bathroom at work and someone you know walks in.

65. But here I am free. Free to be meeeeee.

66. The day is almost over. Let's finish strong.

67. A couple more emails.

68. And now one last note... and I'm done!

69. I did it. I successfully worked from home.

70. And I only accidentally procrastinated for three hours!

71. Now, to change into a fresh pair of pajamas and get right into bed.
