I was amongst those fortunate enough to start a new job during the pandemic. It was weird at first, working with people who all seem to know each other very well at a company that was not set up for remote work. There were plenty of problems getting started – from the lack of motivation to random internet outages. Over time though, I have been able to develop a rhythm. My job offers a great work-life balance and so I have been able to live healthier, take better care of things around me and invest more time in my hobbies. In this time of social starvation, I do miss going to the office and meeting people. However, given the chance I doubt I will ever go back.
