Working from home is overrated. Okay, fine, it's not if you've got a family and those kind of commitments. But I don't. And I've been bored out of my skull today. Granted, I've been more productive today than I would have been on an ordinary Monday, and I got to listen to part of my vast MP3 collection and watch part of The Simpsons, but still, nothing makes up for the complete lack of social contact. I could deal with it a little better while I was studying for the CFA because that required more brain power than what I usually use at work, but today has really been rather frustrating. It started off all nice because I could sleep in a little later, but not having anyone to talk to really sucked.

And to top it off, I find that I'm really missing a good friend today. Not having the other half of the "twin engines of alcohol consumption" (as another friend calls us) around to have inane superficial conversations about shopping, icky boys, work and what we're going to do with our lives sucks. And knowing she won't be back for a couple of years yet really bites. Singapore just hasn't been the same without her.

Just of them days where you detest having nothing to do but know you'll hate having something to do huh?

Wait?!? Did that make sense? hmm...

Actually, that made perfect sense. I'd rather be in the office. It's much easier to work there instead of reading everything off a screen. If I had to work at home for a week, I might very well go insane.
