If you worked from home but it was the type of job that you had to be tied to your computer for, what would you do? You still have an hour lunch break but, you have people from all over the world IM'ing you at any given time and you are expected to write them back at a quick pace... what would you do to entertain yourself on those slow days or days you want to just do something else for a min or two? Now... throw in that you just moved into a new city and you know no one and creating relationships with people just got about 90% harder? Thoughts? I exercise, I joined a yoga studio... I don't even like working out that much. Its good and I like the results but it doesn't fulfill me. Running and yoga are both individual activities. More alone time but in the presence of people. Perhaps that's a step. I looked into joining a cooking class... thing is, I don't have an extra 400 bucks laying around for it. Hmm, art classes... all during the day or all day on Saturday. I like my weekends with my husband. I've thought about getting a part time job to fill the void of not having anyone other than my hus to talk to, but, working evenings really means not seeing him. Its a rough situation to figure out. It's pretty lonely too. OH, and my apartment doesn't allow pets... even MORE of a bummer. Anyways, suggestions are welcome.
sometimes working from home isn't all that its geared up to be. going into some place and having work friends or a chance to go out to lunch with someone or just being able to leave your work really can be beneficial. Well, to those that are wired like me at least. And yes, I take walks, go get coffee and frequent local boutique's but again, all individual activities.
Just seeking some advice. I kinda feel like a stay at home mom who's bored but without the baby and have way more sleep. :)
I do like Philly though. The city has a lot to offer and lots to still explore. I'm not giving up on it! This is my first time living in the northeast... everything takes some getting used to. Life is always good. :)
