I've been fantasizing about working from home since I started my current job in 2016. I dreamed of sitting in front of my computer, writing & recording music all day every day. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, my company has me working from home starting today and I'll be starting at 2:00 pm. It's definitely … Continue reading Day 159: Quarantine & Working from Home
