I never thought I’d say this, but I miss my colleagues. I miss making jokes in the office, I miss my desk, I miss the noises that are around the office. I miss it all.
Note to self: never take it for granted.
Virtual communication within teams is how many companies are staying afloat. Yet, there are two effects of this that are frustrating. Late replies in messages that need urgent responses and misunderstanding messages. I’m taking the latter as practice on how to convey a message well in text as I do in speech. So there is the silver lining.
One thing I love about my team is that calls happen only when needed. One or two can be longer than necessary but at least they don’t happen every hour of every day. Some days go by without calls at all.
