I heart home work

I had two interviews today, which brought the number of interviews that needed to be transcribed today to a daunting number of four.
Anyone who has ever had to transcribe anything knows this is a terrible, terrible task.

I plowed through the first three, but by the time I reached the third, I was fading fast.
By the mid afternoon, our office gets about as hot as the ninth level of hell times a thousand.
I kid you not when I say it’s hot enough to melt your brain – we always have glazed looks in our eye by the end of these hot, hot, hot summer days. 

I knew I needed to still get that last interview done, so I did what any good editrix would do: I brought my recorder to my seriously pleasant 71-degree home, kicked off the heels, put on shorts and a tank top and started typing away to the streaming tune of my favorite classic-rock station, Long Island’s 102.3 WBAB.
Plus, I was basking in the afternoon sunlight streaming into my home office and happily gazing out at the sun-dappled leaves moving ever so slightly in the breeze.

Yes, this is much better to see than my cubicle walls!

It didn’t take very long for my brain to stop being so mushy and soon the transcribing was done, I started blogging this blog and now, it’s time for some dinner and a walk after that.

What do you like best about working from home?
