I work remotely at a job in the same place I am at. I am so happy that they allowed me to work remotely even though the office is just around 30 minutes drive away. This shows that remote working doesn't have to be really miles away from where you are.

There is this client of mine, we only involve in volunteering, collaboration and some services we offered. After finish the project, he annoyingly find faults with us for no reason because we make contacts with the community. He is afraid of losing his market and control of the community. You can't control people who we communicate with, whereas you're doing for business and we are doing on personal cause. There are people out there who greedy for money, they are knowledgable but they like to stir stories around. We are glad that we communicate with others, they told us about all these information. They make used of us as much as they can and also called us "workers" whereas we are collaborators only, working for a specific project time frame given. And now he is texting us all over whatsapp because he saw we building another project which has nothing got to do with him, his business, his brand, his marketing and the list goes on. These people are really pain in the ass. They are nothing but just greedy beyond control, it's fine to do what they want, it doesn't bother us. But now we have our own project. We are not ever a business, we just helping others in need with a small amount of money target to provide basic necessity to live. We are upset by the way this founder's behavior. We are very patient with whatever communication and we are clear about any discussions. He told us this is bad. But in our opinion, we are not disturbing his business nor his partners. We are just helping out a cause. We are so done. I am so done. I'm so tired thinking about this kind of people in my life. It sucks really.

Pro of remote work loneliness is that I am much more creative. Being alone helps me have ideas and really develop them in my mind. In an office, this process would be interrupted by many other things. This is an interesting counterpart.

Working remotely is a sure proof way to increase your caffeine intake, find ways to do anything but the work you need to do and to tell yourself that you'll do it just after you "insert random excuse". Remote work is basically procrastination with half hour work frenzies when the deadlines start piling up. Still beats 9 to 5 though.
