I've been working from home for over 5 years now and while I love the freedom to work whenever I want and wherever I want, it's not all rainbows and unicorns. These GIFs will show you both the pros and cons of working from home. Ready?
1 It Can Get Pretty Lonely Sometimes
Where did all the humans go?
2 Working in Your Pajamas Does Sound Exciting at First...
3 But You Quickly Miss Having a Reason to Dress up Every Morning
What do I do with my closet full of clothes and shoes?
4 There Are Times when You Work Way Too Much...
Wait, what time did you say it is?
5 And then There Are Times when You Can't Even Get off the Couch
Damn you, television!
6 People Assume That You're Always Free...
Stop dropping by whenever you feel like! And no, I can't run errands for you!
7 Your Laptop is Your Life, and God Forbid Something Happens to It...
8 You May Not Have Coworkers to Distract You, but...
There's YouTube, pets, funny animal videos, kids, and of course Benedict Cumberbatch!
9 When People Ask You What You do at Home All Day Long, You're like...
Let's also not forget the people who tell you that this is not a real job. SERIOUSLY?!
10 Sometimes You Have to Find Ways to Entertain Yourself
You eventually get pretty good at it too.
11 Your Fitness Regimen Could Go for a Toss Depending on How Lazy You Are...
It does take some serious self discipline to get out of your PJs and get moving.
12 You Sleep during the Oddest Hours
Wait, is that birds I hear?
13 But That Also Means You Can Wake up Whenever You Want!
No more alarm clocks!
14 On the Upside, You Don't Have to Commute
No more crowded trains and bumper to bumper traffic every single day.
15 Or Deal with Rude Coworkers
No more office drama!
16 You save Money!
So much money!
17 And My Personal Favorite....freedom to Travel as Often as You like!
Sure, you have to plan the financial aspect of it (remember that money you saved?), and take your laptop along sometimes but I'd take that over physically going to an office any day!
Do you work from home? What aspects of it do you love and what do you loathe?
