Complaining About Being Here

I don’t like to complain about going into the office out loud, but I am okay with doing it here.

The main complaint is always the same. I miss the gigantic 10,000 inch monitor on my desk at home. I have the laptop’s monitor and a little tiny second monitor here, but even combined they aren’t even close to as big as the 1,000,000 inch monitor at home.

The AirPods Max I brought in with me are wonderful headphones. Still, I greatly prefer listening to music or podcasts during the work day on the HomePod we have in the cellar. I just prefer a little space in my audio, you know what I mean? And I don’t mean the horrible, awful spatial audio garbage Apple came up with for their headphones. No thank you. That shit is the worst. I mean actual space. I want to have air moving. You know, sound. That’s not a knock against the AirPods Max (other than the crappy spatial audio thing), it’s just a personal preference.

When I work in the office I have to make my lunch ahead of time. There’s nothing wrong with that, I just like the idea of being able to change my mind about what I want to eat at the last minute. You know, after a lifetime of being a pathological picky eater, sometimes you just can’t see that far ahead. It’s a thing. Trust me.

I miss my keyboard and mouse. The keyboard and mouse I have at home are both swanky and awesome gamer level stuff. The keyboard is mechanical and makes tons of clickity clack noise. Here in the office? Simple and straightforward. No bells and whistles. I typo like crazy, and sometimes my right mouse button just ignores me.

I mean, let’s be honest, there is nothing here in the office that makes my life difficult at all. It’s just that after 2+ years of working from home… I’ve gotten a little spoiled by the goodness.

The biggest complaint of all though: No Jen. Sad face. These days we can include no Harry and no Bellana as well. Sad face times three.
