On the one hand, being in an office this time of year is nice. Everyone is so happy about the holidays, and we do fun stuff like a staff dinner, Secret Santa gift exchanges, and put up decorations.
On the other hand, being in an office this time of year is very difficult. Our office gets a lot of holiday gifts, and just about all of them are chocolate. Since they’re to say thanks for stuff the staff all do, the chocolates get shared, and put out in common areas for everyone to help themselves.
It’s not that I don’t like chocolate, it’s that I like it too much. If you think controlling your diet is tough this time of year no matter what, imagine it when there are yummy chocolates of all kinds of varieties two doors over, just waiting for someone to eat them.
I don’t have enough willpower to work here full time, and working here part time I still have to pay dearly at the gym and the closet when I try on my clothes.
Some things were easier when I worked at home five days a week.
