The pandemic has brought about the work at home revolution and you know what? I think it’s here to stay! It’s actually not something I can do on the daily and at some point I will have to go back to work as I see clients daily but I can see some companies just leaving a lot of their work force at home. It’s actually pretty cost efficient especially when you consider the prices of rent on offices here in Manhattan.
Working at home is actually pretty fun as you can walk around the house all damn day in pajamas if you want. I do like my routine and I’m a creature of habit so I did get up daily, get dressed, and do my makeup even if I don’t have a Zoom meeting scheduled for that day. It made me feel normal and I also think it’s important to keep these rituals and routines otherwise I can see myself developing bad habits.
It was pretty funny seeing the mistakes people made on Zoom meetings last year. Like Will Reeves who was business on top and party on the bottom! That man had a nice jacket and shirt on top and he was sitting there with his boxer shorts. Great idea! Too bad you got caught doing it and on national TV haha…! You’ll get no judgement from me because I’ve done this once or twice too! PJ bottoms and a nice blouse on top! After the meeting I just slip the blouse off and have my tank on underneath! Insta-comfort!
I haven’t had any bad Zoom Meeting moments though!
Anyone embarrass themselves?
I was on a winning streak until yesterday…!
You know I’ve been trying out all these new hair styles in lock down. I’m my own stylist over here and everyday I have some new hairstyle. Braids, pigtails, crown braids, sloppy buns, hell, I even though about cutting my hair but chickened out last minute.
One common style I actually wear a lot are space buns. I typically put my hair into two buns on top of my head when I workout or after my shower. Yesterday, after my shower I swirled them into two buns, got dressed, did my makeup, but I forgot to take them down. Typically after I get dressed and start my makeup I’ll slick my hair into a bun, pop a headband on to keep my hair out of my eyes, and get to work.
For some reason, yesterday, I forgot to that.
The makeup was on, I was dressed, I was just walking around with space buns. Which would have been fine if I didn’t sit there two different zoom meetings with space buns on my head and no one said a word.
It took me several hours before I realized it.
I’m sure this isn’t the last Zoom meeting mistake I’ll make.
How about you?
Any embarrassing Zoom moments to share?
