Since the advent of working from home, influencers and employees have been sharing their experiences on TikTok. According to the US Census Bureau, the number of people working remotely has tripled in the last three years.
In a viral video posted on Sept. 14, TikToker Eden Yonas (@edenkyonas) kept it real with her followers and shared what working from home is really like.
“Anyone who works from home and has influence on this damn app knows how to make their work-from-home life aesthetic,” she says. “Well, let me show you what it really looks like.”

Yonas explains that she usually has a drink that she cradles at her desk “all day long,” though sometimes it’s multiple drinks.
“I had three drinks around me yesterday,” 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 previous night while she sits at her desk and stares at her computer all day.
“This is real homework,” she argues. “‘I wake up in the morning. I go to Starbucks. I come back home’…None of that…I roll right out of bed and sit with my butt in this chair and I’m rattling. 9-5.”
In the comments section, users agreed with Yonas and shared their usual routines.
“Girl I’m in a MUMU and my hood. I’m never on camera except once a week and it’s still off,” commented one user.
“In the same ‘WFH’ fit as yesterday,” shared another.
“Chile, I work from my bed,” said a third user.
The Daily Dot contacted Yonas via email.
