  • 07/18 12:54:48 Rosamond: I hangout on local slack channels slightly_smiling_face
  • 07/18 12:55:04 Rosamond: That and random lunches and meetups with coworkers in the area.
  • 07/18 12:55:06 Paulina: coffee shop was a great thing as well; it afforded me the ability to work remotely from a work-able place that was cheaper than any coworking space
  • 07/18 12:55:11 Paulina: also, congratulations, @Terresa slightly_smiling_face
  • 07/18 12:55:51 Rosamond: As long as your new place has an active slack/hipchat, it’s not so bad. I was concerned, but haven’t really missed it much. And I’m the type of person who considered bantering with coworkers one of the best parts of my day.
  • 07/18 12:55:53 Terresa: Thanks on all accounts. Are you still working remote?
  • 07/18 12:57:01 Paulina: Oooh yeah, this also became a thing. since I didn’t have lunch with coworkers I met up with friends and other colleagues in the area more regularly
  • 07/18 12:57:15 Paulina: no I wish…
  • 07/18 12:57:31 Paulina: one day, again. heh
  • 07/18 13:06:46 Terresa: At least we have jobs. Who are you working for? I got a job with a design company out of Arizona.
  • 07/18 13:08:23 Paulina: I’m currently working at Clinton Electronics, in Loves Park, IL. It’s a 5 min drive from my house and they offered a competitive salary. I was pretty surprised, but it’s been a great workplace.
  • 07/18 13:08:56 Paulina: I’m glad to hear you finally found something! you’ve been looking for awhile it seems like slightly_smiling_face
  • 07/18 13:13:05 Terresa: I’ve been looking off an on for about a year. I got really discouraged for a while so I was just trying to freelance to make some extra scratch
  • 07/18 14:32:22 Deangelo: I’ve been working remote full time for about 10 years. I hang out with friends for lunch once a week and go to church at least once a week. And that’s generally enough social interaction for me.
  • 07/18 14:32:32 Deangelo: I also belong to a local co-working space as well, but I don’t go there specifically for social interaction, but generally for the silence. (My house is also home to 3 homeschooled boys.)
