I love how your story balances the pitfalls and pleasures of working from home. I wonder if we need to recalibrate our education system to prepare children for the realities of remote work. A huge percentage of children in their early years of school may never have a job with a water cooler and a common break room.
Working remotely requires a different skill set from working in a cubicle. But, like you, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
