New Office

Well, my company went through some changes. One guy from my office left, and my boss decided to move to Nashville. So I’ve got a whole new office:

Office

Now, some of my more loyal readers might notice something strange about this picture. They may ask, “But Brad, that looks just like your basement?!” To them I’d say, you’re obsessing about me and you should seek help. But that doesn’t make the observation any less correct.

With the changeup of the office, I’m able to now work from home. With the simplicity of communication these days, there really wasn’t any reason to keep me in an office anymore (particularly since there was only one other person there, and he travels frequently). So now I can say goodbye to the daily commute, the life of khakis and polo shirts, and the time I waste with everything associated with office life.

From what I’ve heard, though, the greater freedom that you have working from home also often leads to increased productivity. This was a previously-unused room, and I’m making sure that I don’t have extraneous distractions like TV. And with this above my desk, I’m sure I’ll have some extra motivation if I decide to head down there and write at night :-)

Don't Tread, Bitches!

  1. Congratulations! I enjoyed the heck out of my 3+ years of working from home…except for the summers. Being the single parent of three kids meant that my work day would often stretch from one A.M. to the next, with multiple referee breaks (i.e. “teaching moments”) throughout the day.

    My new gig in NJ promises “khakis and polo shirts” as far as the eye can see. ;-)

  2. Yes, Now Brad can wear black jeans and black t-shirts while working, just like in college. I dig the flag though, I might have to buy one for my new office. That might actually work in the job trailer.

  3. Nick,

    I haven’t worn black jeans since my wife started dressing me 4 years ago…

    There are links to purchasing the flag through this site.

  5. Nice, welcome to the wonderful world of the non-commute. Make sure you work in an exercise routine if you don’t already have one. You’d be surprised how much you used to walk around in an office environment, even if all you did was walk down to the local convenient store for a snack or go out to lunch.

  6. Jack,

    Back in CA, my rule used to be 100 sit-ups and 100 push-ups before I was allowed to drink beer at night. When we moved, and now have hardwood floors upstairs, I haven’t done any of that. So that’s something that I’m planning on working into my daily routine. Plus maybe either taking the dogs for a walk at lunchtime, or walking up and down my steep driveway 20-30 times…
