  • When I was a kid, one thing I always said was that I would not, under any circumstances, work inside a windowless office. I just could not picture myself living day after day in a cubicle.

    Well, my young self would be very disappointed to know that I spent almost all of my working life inside an office. Not necessarily windowless though (some of those offices were quite nice!), but still not exactly what I pictured when I was young. This is the story of how that happened, and how in the end it was ok to work in an windowless office (as long as you are in good company!).

    P.s.: this is my first attempt at an audio recording instead of typing my post, so bear with me :)
