That's not a bad thing at all! While I'm not up for it (I need a separation of home from work), I know plenty who took WAH opportunities at my last job and love it.Starting sometime next week, I'll going to be able to work from home pretty much full time.
That may not excite some people, but I'm stoked about it. They gave me some nice Christmas presents too. A pair of widescreen monitors, a new laptop, and a docking station.
Yeah, I can imagine some people needing to get away from home in order to work. Especially if you have a family or roommates or whatever. Luckily (?) for me, I have my own place all to myself, so it's a much more quiet environment to work compared to my office. The big deal for me is not having to commute, which takes up 9 hours of my time each week. So I get basically 2 hours back each day that I work from home. That's a big deal to me. It also means the 16-17 thousand miles a year I put on my car would decrease to about 2 or 3 thousand, assuming this arrangement lasts. I imagine I'll save quite a bit of money on gas, maintenance, and depreciation on my vehicle.That's not a bad thing at all! While I'm not up for it (I need a separation of home from work), I know plenty who took WAH opportunities at my last job and love it.
And this morning I took another step, passing both the written "knowledge" exam and the written "navigation" exams for the Sportk?stenschifferschein..This is the first of several steps which lead to the German version of the Yachtmaster Coastal cercification with the goal of being able to charter a yacht without the need of a hired skipper.
