If everything goes to plan the day this post goes up, I should be sitting at my work desk. The same office that I hadn’t seen since last March when schools closed in Malta. Like everything in life, there are pros and cons to me going back to work.
Pros of going back to work
It pays the bills.
Less time on my own with my thoughts
Seeing the kids, I missed so much
Relieving the pressure of having to work by myself
Socializing and feeling less of a hermit
Going out of the house
Being on the go all-day which makes time go by faster
Relearning how to work in a team
Going back home to Malta
Having a change of environment
Meeting the new job coach, I guess (if you have a disability and you are employed you get a job coach, and my old one quit during the lockdown, so I have a new one)
Cons of going back to work
Stress will increase
Dealing with a lot of people every day
Dealing with my muscle fatigue
More changes of getting COVID
Having to wear a mask all-day
The dogs will have to get used to us not being at home all-day
Can’t have therapy whenever I need it
Less time to research and write
So, how did you feel going back to work? Let’s chat in the comments!
