I’ve been “at work” for a week now, but because of COVID-19, I can’t physically go to the office, hence the quotation marks. I’ve had a few video meetings with my new colleagues, but never having met them in person, it almost feels as if I’m playing a game. Sim Office, or something like that. While having this technology is both amazing and futuristic, it does make it clear how much value there is in a social setting. It’s harder to ask for help, because you feel more like you’re butting in when you start that call instead of just popping into the next cubicle and asking. That said, I’m really happy to be a working stiff again.
