    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.
