This is the tale of a girl who longed to be out of quarantine and what happened in the two weeks away from the office working from home. This girl is me, Erin, and if you’ve ever worked from home while quarantining from COVID, maybe these many different stages of quarantine sound familiar to you. I enlisted the help of Friends to help me share my story and I hope that you all enjoy!
