Comedy of errors

The joys of working from home do NOT include the days when your internet dies and takes your phone down with it, so you have to call the cable company for service but they tell you that they can't send a tech for two days, so you haul your computer and associated paraphernalia to the library where you discover that the only parking around has to be paid for with coins and you just have cards, so your long-sufferi ...more

Work-Life Balance Roundup

This week we dive into the wide-world of work-life balance. To me the term is almost mythical. What is it really supposed to mean? A perfectly balanced life? That's like a perfectly done souffle or perfectly round and even homemade pie. I don't know about you, but those are few and far between (and often a fluke). Not to mention often the juice just isn't worth the squeeze (as an manager of mine used to say). ...more

Yes, sitting in front of the computer = working

For some reason, people tend to snicker at me when I say I work from home, then lecture me on the necessity of waking up at the butt-crack of dawn, join the plethora of commuters braving the other plethora of commuters - all intent on pentrating the impenetrable traffic that is Jakarta's, meet zillions (read: those at the office, somewhere between 5-20 same people each day) , and earn an honest living.

Gangsta Clean

In my house, there are 3 levels of clean. Level 1: Half-assed clean.  This is the level of clean that is achieved on a daily basis.  It’s not that I don’t love having a spotless house, because I do.  But during the weekdays between the hours of 9-5, I’m OBLIGATED to be on the couch at my office desk blogging shopping online working and just don’t have time to clean....more
