Now that I’m an office worker with regular work hours, I go to campus and back with a tiny little bag. It houses my glasses, phone, keys and an extraordinarily dirty face diaper.
It’s really cool not to have to lug around a huge heavy bag everywhere I go. It’s also wonderful to have real weekends. I haven’t turned on my home computer in weeks.
This has been a great change. I can’t recommend this kind of schedule strongly enough to other academics.
