I decided to go remote because I did not like wasting my time commuting to work everyday (listening to audiobooks did not help) and in the near future when I have a family and kids, I would like to spend more time with them with the time saved from the commute. Also, I do not mind being alone for the most part of the day and feel more focused with being remote (less office distractions).
