After more than two years, I’ve decided to resign from my company. No, it’s not because I was forced to or I don’t like it there anymore. In fact, I enjoyed my stay there in USAP. People there are really nice and of course the compensation and benfits are highly competitive. It’s just that, I wanted to explore some alternatives.
So, it’s official. I’m now working from home.
My first day in this new set-up was quite confusing. When I woke up in the morning, I didn’t know what to do. I was used to waking up, having breakfast then dress-up for work. But in that first morning when I no longer have an ‘office’ to go to, my daily routine suddenly got destroyed.
Well, I already expected before that my routine will really change. Yet, it seemed that in that morning, I wasn’t prepared. Now, I’m starting to get used to it already.
So what are the good things I discovered with this set-up…
- No need for daily ‘baon’ and transportation allowance. My lunchbox has finally retired.
- Very comfortable work place
- No need to wake up soooo early
- No need to worry what to wear for work. in fact you could work even in undies only. But of course, I don’t do that.
Although there are lots of good things in working at home, there are also some not-so-good ones. Like the SSS and Philhealth benefits which I’ll have arranged by next month. I gotta declare that I’m self-employed. Apart from that, there are also lots of distractions at home which are sometimes too hard to avoid. The people, the bed and the tv. Beware of those three.
That’s it. Ooops, gotta go. I have to check my mail for my next tasks. bye.
