So it’s finally my time…
This week, work mentioned that they *might* be scheduling in-person meetings for everyone at the office next month. Maximum, it will be the whole week so I will need to be there for 5 days before returning back to my normal WFH lifestyle.
Oh gosh. If this happens, it will be my first time back in the office since Covid happened. Was it really like, 2 and a half years ago?! Really that long?! I can’t wrap my head around that.
In the meantime, NONE of my office clothes even fit me anymore as I’ve gained 20lbs since then.
I’m not going to lie. I’m stressed about this.
In only a month, I have to buy new proper outfits that will fit me. I have to get my haircut. I have to lose 20lbs.
And I have to mentally prepare myself to be around coworkers in-person again. So weird.

There’s perks to working from home, like not having to buy fancy clothes. But at the same time, it must feel good being able to get out of the house. I’m sorry you have to buy new clothes… I think we all gained the covid-20 😒
Oh gosh, the covid-20 is EXACTLY what I caught, and there’s no vax for it! 🙁
Good luck. I haven’t had to go back yet, but I feel for you.
Thank you Kristie, I’m super nervous about it.
It’s been officially scheduled now. 3 more weeks to go! 🙁
I refuse to like this. It feels stressful.
Oh wow! I went back to the office in May and it was different but the same. Try not to stress, it won’t be so weird. Or it will be but it’ll also be familiar and sort of comfortable.
Thanks Smelly 🙂 I think one extra thing that makes this very weird for me, is that I’ve switched roles in the company three times since Covid – alot of restructuring/lay-offs/people leaving in the last couple years. So I’ve literally NEVER met in-person most of the coworkers that I have now. 🙁
We all gained I think…don’t stress, everyone’s probably feeling similarly. Just smile and do your best. You will do great! 🙂
Yes, I just have to power-through it. That’s what I do. 🙂
You’ll be fine I’m sure… even with the people lol
