I've had strep for 4 days. No fever, just coughing so rough it brings me to tears. Antibiotics and cough scrip don't seem to helping. I've had so much hot tea and cough drops. Worried the humidifier running so long will give the house mold.

And the worst part is I can't sleep.

New job HR onboarding meeting is 9am... pacific time. I have nothing to do until 11am. I feel all dressed up for the party but stuck waiting to leave.

Only 49.05% of my state's population is fully vaccinated.

The next wave is going to be a bloodbath. At this point, I'm OK with that and I'm tired of pretending that I'm not.I feel bad for those we can't be vaccinated (or for whom the vaccine may not help), but their well-being was always in society's hands, and society, as usual, has failed.

Wednesday before Thanksgiving, company closed early at 3pm, comping everyone 2 hours of time. But I work 7-4, and I worked through lunch because we were short handed, making my total for that day 8 hours. So no comp time for me.

Bullshit like this is why today is my last day.

They accidentally removed me from the phone workgroup early, so I'm not even getting calls. Getting paid to practice Duolingo 🤭

Shabu-shabu for Thanksgiving. (Yes, that's mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce on the side)

I can't decide how far I'm willing to violate company dresscode policy for Friday, my last day. It's already "jeans day," so I was going to wear jeans that violate policy - they are frayed around the heels. Seriously, that's against policy. I think I might wear a t-shirt, too. Plain, not graphic t-shirt, I want to retain a little class.

Does anyone else feel constantly raw and dead inside from spending most of their waking life working?

People with the less common spelling of a common name: how do you react when someone misspells it? What if they were provided your name in writing, and still misspelled it?

I wonder how deep this rabbit hole goes and how much I'm going to have to fix.
