Starting work next week. Likely WFH the whole year. I have a standard morning routine that I would like to try to keep. What’s a reasonable time for me to start working? On the other hand, what’s a reasonable time for me to log off? Say I come to good stopping point and I fall asleep around 9:30pm. But then something happens at 10:30pm and i’m asleep… would partners be pissed? Just trying to navigate some potential issues. Any advice would be great!

Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?

The Johnson interview is via Skype. Does anyone know how it works? I booked my interview online and provided my Skype ID but there is no link shared or anything. Do I need to download Skype on my laptop and wait for the interviewer to call me? Or will there be a link to be shared with me close to the interview date?
