I'm late sending this out this week mostly due to the mess caused by working across two devices as I settle into my new role at Google. As a long-time freelancer, everything has always just been linked to my personal computer and accounts. Having a work computer means disentangling work and personal stuff. It's probably a good thing long-term to be able to close the lid on work, however getting everything where I need it to be might take a while!
