I Do the Coding, She Does the Cleaning

Posted April 3rd, 2018 by admin

The part time helper in Singapore that I hired has been working out well for me. Now I have more time to do work and less to spend on cleaning. I work from home as a programmer, and often I get lost in my work for hours, typing various lines of code, running tests and fixing bugs, and compiling. It’s not always easy and sometimes I’ll have to work on a problem for a while until I’m able to find a solution that will finally get my code running. By the time the day is over, I’ll be exhausted and won’t want to do anything.

My house isn’t very big, but since I’m the only one living there, cleaning it can be a daunting task. There’s all the vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing, and polishing that must be done in each room. I don’t even know how some of these rooms get dirty when I don’t really spend a lot of time in them. If there were some other people living in the house with me, we would probably be able to tackle all of the cleaning chores each week, but then we would probably be arguing about who had to clean what.

The helper comes twice a week to do a necessary cleaning. I do my best to stay out of her way while she’s doing it. Sometimes I take my work outside by moving everything to my laptop. It’s nice to get some fresh air every once in a while, and the birds don’t seem to mind the clicking sound that my keyboard makes when I’m typing code. By the time the helper is done cleaning, I’m still working on my code with no end in sight. Being a programmer pays well, but it can be hard on the mind sometimes.
