You wake up with the first day of work jitters. Nervous energy percolates as you brush your teeth. Things you had no desire to do a week ago, like putting on pants, suddenly seem thrilling. You saunter over to your desk with a steamy cup ready to get to work. Your cat circles your ankles almost as if to say, you did it! You found a job during the pandemic! You hold the on button down on your monitor and wait, optimistically, for the connection to establish.
