I’m transitioning from working in an office to working from home. Right now it’s a few days a week, but I will soon work from home full-time.
I know this sounds like a dream come true for most people. But I am afraid that for me, the transition from semi-adjusted introvert to total shut-in will be an effortless one.
Exhibit A: The other day I forced my dog to pose with the Yorkie socks that my Mom gave me for Christmas. (You must admit, the resemblance is striking.)
It was only after I posted the photo to Facebook that it occurred to me, “well, that was a weird fucking thing to do.”
It was something one of *those* people would do. Those sad people who need to reach out and talk to people so badly they post photos of their socks and winter white calves on the internet.
I must be more vigilant going forward. I am developing a test that I must pass prior to repeating this error again. I will ask myself, “If this thing I am about to post was not my photo or thought, but a story someone tried to tell me on public transportation… would I change my seat? If not, post away. If so, time to get out of the house.”
