After my [admittedly unusual] tough couple of weeks at work, I volunteered for paperwork duty - closing roughly 1300 tickets using our exactingly obtuse online system. Its been a double-edged sword. Many things are.

But I've enjoyed the pace.

In setting aside my unix administrator duties, I've no longer required all my available assets, which allowed me to consider performing my duties in a less formal setting - more specifically, the couch - a first for me.

I'm still getting used to it, but the change in venue has allowed me to better focus on my temporary responsibility. Awkwardly, I've had a sharp increase in conference calls during this same time, but I found the couch particularly well suited for those.

It surprises me sometimes how long it takes for me to reframe things, as I've been working from home now for two years, and only now just left the office.
