I don't like heating pads but I do love casual pants/shorts when I'm menstruating. So nice not to have to see people

Yessssssss

Depending on how I’m feeling, use a heating pad for aches and pains, but if you’re someone who gets cold, get an electric blanket. You can either cover up with it or sit on it. Honestly amazing.

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
