The second piece of such policies really doesn't work to my advantage. I've been doing terribly in my efforts to finish up the last bits of my thesis. I don't want it to end, I suspect. But right now I am sitting in a loud bar with a bunch of obnoxiously loud drunk people and I'm moving like gangbusters. And it seems that no matter how hard I try, I do my best work at the pub, and a change of locale is equivalent to a decline in quality. Now, since no one is going to allow yours truly to work from the pub regularly, what am I to do?
I suppose I could make recordings of bar noise and replay them on my ipod when I'm having trouble concentrating at the office.
