Have you ever woken up for work, checked your phone, and found out you don't need to work today? That's a good day.
Working from home has always been a convenience thing. My commute is four hours round trip. It's better than most, I think. A 30 minute drive is a 30 minute hassle to me, while two hours walking, and play games or reading on the bus is not. But it does take a chunk of my day.
Today I got a minor schedule change, one that I've been working towards for years, that comes with one day working from home a week. It's more than convenience to me though. It's a sign that I'm making it as an adult, even if it is a small one. My long term goal is to find a job that I can do completely from home, anywhere in the world, by the time I'm 55. I have twenty years.
To counter act this unexpected spurt of maturity, I was finally able to get my hands on one of these numbers. --->
This is an adult size Gir hoodie from Invader Zim. I first saw one in children sizes when the show had just finished airing. I knew I needed one the moment I saw that zipper. But they never made them in men's sizes.
I've spent the last year or so, checking Ebay once in a while for a large enough women's version, with no success. I even toyed with the idea of to talking to someone I know about having one made. Then a couple of weeks about, Ebay came through. A women's 2XL.
Now that I have it, it's everything I thought it would be. It's like wearing a toy.
