Working From Home Has Its Pros And Cons, It's Not All Meetings In Cozy PJs

I'm a full-time student with a part-time job but sometimes I start thinking about whether I could or even should consider working from home instead. Many of us complain about the struggles that we face going to the actual place to work. Whether it's too far or it's too early. What would you do? I've asked myself many times whether I want to continue to work at my job or work from my home or phone. Then I wondered if I was the only one who had that question.

Here are some of the pros of working at home.

1. Don't have to go through the traffic jam to go to work.

2. You are safer in your home and you are able to watch your kids. No more paying the babysitter.

3. You can interact and socialize with other people, plus you get "fresh air."

4. You get your own desk, have your own space.

5. Working in a home you can work on your own time and have all the accommodations you need; you can eat when you want, sleep when you want and do what you want without disrupting anybody else.


1. You have to deal with your personal life in the same place that you work and that can get difficult at times.

2. Getting distracted easily by kids, electronics, housework, pets, etc.

3. Slacking because you know that you won't have to deal with a boss.

4. You won't be able to focus, knowing there is no one to push you to work.

5. If you have questions or seems to be confused, you won't someone to ask for help.

What about working in an office?

1. Much more productive and less distraction from the family.

2. Be able to share your opinions and ideas with your colleagues.

3. Create a habitat for growth and learning.

4. Offices have more space than in a regular room in a house.

5. Face-to-face interaction does lead to more innovation.

But there are some cons.

1. You can be stuck in traffic on your way to work.

2. Working in an office can add a lot of pressure and make it more difficult to accomplish work efficiently.

3. You're under someone's rules, you have to dress professionally, and your family time could be taken away.

4. You have to work with co-workers that you may not get along with.

5. Fewer hours of sleep, the struggle of waking up early. Or being asked to stay longer.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
