The agency I work at is officially now a remote company. While I’m thankful to not feel pressured to return to work when I’m not ready, and I love the wfh freedom, I still find myself kinda sad. Do I wear sweats for the rest of my work life? Haha. My identity feels a bit lost...

Second what ACD1 said. There’s tons of co-working spaces you could try out as well

Try a coworking space — not sure how your agency is/how long you’ve been there/how valuable they find you, but I could see you negotiating for a bit of additional comp if you explain that you want a physical space to work.

I would die to be at a remote agency.

I was interviewing for a job that would be fully remote and got a bit scared for this same reason. I ended up declining, so I feel you!
