Since the rise of working from home, influencers and employees have been sharing their experiences on TikTok. The number of people working remotely has tripled in the past three years, according to the US Census Bureau.
In a viral video posted on September 14, TikToker Eden Yonas (@edenkyonas) kept it real with her followers and shared what working from home really looks like.
“Anyone who works from home and is an influencer of this damn app knows how to make their work from home aesthetic,” she says. “Well, let me show you what it really looks like.”
Yonas explains that she usually has a drink that she “puts in the crib all day” at her desk, although sometimes it’s multiple drinks.
“Yesterday I had three drinks around me,” she recalls. “I had a water, I had a matcha and I had a coffee.”
She says she regularly works in the pajamas she wore the night before, sitting at her desk and staring at her computer all day.
“That really is working from home,” she argues. “‘I wake up in the morning. I’m going to Starbucks. I’m coming back home’…None of that…I roll right out of that bed and I sit on my ass in this chair and I click-clack 9-5.”
In the comments section, users agreed with Yonas and shared their usual routines.
“Girl I’m in a MUMU and my hat. I’m never in front of the camera except once a week and it’s still off,” one user noted.
“In the same ‘WFH’ fit I was in yesterday,” said another.
“Chile I work from bed,” said a third user.
