Type of work.
I'm writing my dissertation on educational television and race in the 1970s.
Why I work remotely.
It's difficult for me to work from home. At home it is easy for me to get sleepy and decide to go take a nap rather than work. I also get distracted by all the house-related tasks I want to do like gardening, the dishes, cleaning, repainting... Working elsewhere is great not only because it gets me out of the house, but also because the ambient noise helps me stay (relatively) focused. I guess white noise not only helps me sleep, but also helps me work. Isn't that weird?
