When you work a desk job, sometimes a snow day is great. Sometimes it’s a super productive work from home day, where you thank the Internet gods for enabling this. Sometimes it’s a lie on my bed with Netflix and occasionally check e-mail. Sometimes it’s both.
Wake up at my regular time, angry that I didn’t take advantage of a snow day and sleep in, even if I am “working from home.” I mean, that doesn’t mean regular hours right? I’ll just lay here until the fourth or fifth time I have to hit snooze.
Okay, I did it. I will now roll out of bed because I WILL GET WORK DONE AND DEFY THE SNOW GODS.
Look at me go, answering e-mails, making spreadsheets and being super productive. I might do amazing things today. This might be great.
I could probably be productive in bed, right? It’s cold in my room and beds are so warm. Blanket time.
I had a solid little run there, might as well check out the Internets. What are the kids talking about today?
Wait, how did I lose that hour? Should I check my e-mail? No, I should eat breakfast. Why didn’t I eat like three hours ago? I’m starving. I can’t work in these conditions. Breakfast break.
I am way too full. I should watch some TV for a little bit. Digest a little. I will definitely fall asleep in bed if I try to work there.
This is ridiculous. I need to get back to my work bed and get some stuff done.
I’m 26 years old. I need to get a desk. This can’t keep happening. I need to focus.
If I keep pretending to do work, I might actually get some done. I answered more e-mails. I even gchatted about work! I’m doing okay. I should reward myself with a snack and take a break again.
You know what will help me focus? A nice long hot shower. I can’t spend all day in pjs, right? This is what will help me pretend to be a functioning, responsible adult.
Okay, so maybe an hour-long shower while belting out Beyonce’s “Flawless” was unnecessary. (Disagree. ~ed.) My roommate, who is also home, didn’t love it. Neither did the dog. Also, there might not be any hot water left in the building now. That’s a thing that could happen, right? Okay, time to sit and focus.
Well, work day is over, TV time. You had a good run, self. I tried, and that should count for something.
