Do you have the option to cut back on the overtime even if it's for a few hours?

R used to work for this charity. They're still offering email support (which would work across the pond too).

Thanks Lemon. When I was on a call earlier I almost started crying... my voice was cracking a little - the guy instantly started being nicer. I think maybe I hit on something - let my voice crack a little on every call haha.
i didn't cry, like i said before, i seem to not be able to let myself. Which come to think of it is probably wigging me out some too, because I have ALWAYS been able to cry and it's never been a matter of "letting myself" it just happens. I think that L is going to see some tears on friday though, thankful i decided to go back after her vacation instead of waiting until February like I was originally gonna do.

Only way out of OT is a doctor's note, I don't know if L counts as a "dr" since she's not technically one, but I might just have to try it. Although I'm hoping I'll feel better after a good night's sleep. I have dr appt on Friday for my shoulder - to get the orders to get it xrayed or whatever - HEY WAIT that might just work!!! i can tell the dr that typing 10 hours a day hurts it! (it doesn't, but they don't know that). I don't like to lie to my dr but if it gets me out of OT I might think about it strongly.


thanks for the link i'll check it out!

I need to take a day off of work soon. I keep not wanting to come into work and not wanting to get up which is a sure sign that I'm experiencing some burnout or emotional overload. It's hard right now because there's a girl out due to Covid and I am her backup when she is not here. She's been out all month and it looks like she might be out two more weeks. She has pneumonia on top of the Covid. So that means I can't take a break for two more weeks. Well, like two and a half weeks. Probably not until February. Ack! IDK if I can just keep pushing myself.

Hugs, Kit. I hope you are able to get a day off soon. Covid adds so much pressure all the way around.

I'm tired. I want to go home and sleep but I should either go home and shower or go home and clean my room. Neither of which I want to do.

I don’t like the pandemic or the politics but I am finding world events a lot more interesting lately. Probably what the Chinese curse “may you live in interesting times” means.

I got a personal rejection letter: “well-drawn characters...excellent writing...[but]
Possible trigger:
stories are tough for us to sell.” Never mind it’s really about a
Possible trigger:
Just have to find another place and send it out.

Like the Dark Ages?

Im like, this is what we get for getting rid of all the journalism schools. Why is nobody reporting what happened? Why was no one there?

Eta - can you tell Lois Lane was my childhood hero?
