There is a pile of gifts in the upper corner. The text reads: December 2022, co-work with me to get shit done, cute pupperino not included.
More Work, More Distraction
Whoever said “more money, more problems” was never poor. Am I right, haha?! But let’s be real for a moment. How many times are you supposed to be working but instead you are:
- Doom-scrolling on LinkedIn?
- Drooling over the delicious recipes in Danny Trejo’s cookbook?
- Saving DIY projects on Pinterest that you know damn well you will never do?
- Rewatching Strong Bad’s Email #104 when he describes his idea for a theme park?
Yeah… me neither.
Multitasking for the... Win?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve convinced yourself that you are great at multitasking. The jury is still out on whether multitasking is a myth. Regardless, I still think I do pretty good at handling a few tasks at the same time… sometimes.
A toddler is sitting on a potty chair rested atop a seat with their underwear midway down their legs. They’re sat at a computer table with headphones on, a plate of food in front of them, one hand on a mouse and the other hand on the table. The test reads: Multitasking at its finest.
Regardless, it can be quite distracting to try and multitask. Heck, for someone like me who is neurodivergent, it can be just as distracting to try to work on one task at a time! Enter a fabulous tool to keep in your arsenal: coworking!
Like a Study Group, but Cooler
Meme showing Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord in Wonder Woman 1984. The top half shows him looking angry and pointing. The text reads: Studying normally. The bottom half shows him smiling with a welcoming gesture. The text reads: Being invited to join a study group.
Cowork with me and see yourself get shit done! If you’ve never coworked before, it’s really straightforward. Also called body doubling, coworking is simply us working alongside others who join a session for support, motivation, and accountability.
How does it go? Well, we all enter the room quietly – cameras on and microphones off. I’ll wave and smile at you once you’ve entered and I see your camera on. Whenever you’re done, just hop on off quietly.
That’s it! I often stay later and will announce that in chat for anyone who wants to work more.
Show Me Your Face, Beautiful Drifter
Episode from Saturday Night Live with Justin Bieber starring as the new boyfriend meeting his girlfriend Heather’s parents. Her brother, Eddie, teases him relentlessly after he accidentally says “glice” instead of “glad” or “nice”. The thumbnail shows the moment referenced in the heading of this section. Skip to 4:43 in the video if you only want to see this part of the skit.
If you’ve never seen the skit above, watch it. Your favorite new word will be “GLICE”, I promise you.
And yes, I do need to see your beautiful face during each of these sessions. We use the cameras for accountability. You’ll often see me in my pajamas (even my infamous onesie dog jammies), no makeup, and wild hair. Come as you are!
Cheap and Easy
My coworking sessions are absolutely free – forever! And they are an easy way to help be more productive!
Some of you have suggested that I charge for these sessions. While I appreciate the thought, I want these sessions to be accessible for everyone with no barriers. If you feel inclined, you’re always welcome to buy me a coffee instead. I never refuse a cuppa!
Alright Then: Let's Do This!
These are the available dates and times for December 2022. Sign up for as few or as many as you’d like. Note: you do have to register for these events to attend. You can come and go at any time during the duration of the meetings.
