Things I have learned in three weeks of working a standard office job


  • You adapt to waking up early much quicker than you'd think
  • The commute to work can be oddly calming
  • Good parking is a sizable perk
  • Outlook is useful for the received email notifications, not much else
  • Because of the open nature of cubicles, they aren't very efficient for getting work done
  • Why everyone except me was drinking coffee all these years
