Hopefully you're better now and can get back on it!
I need to take some time off just to reset and finish up the year. I have some time set for end of October/early November..trying to make it to that without losing my mind over the silly stuff that goes on from time to time.
Regardless, I need to dial it down quite a bit. I've caught myself caring far too much lately. I know better / they won't be naming no buildings after me...surely. I need to remember this, cool it down, and put more energy in on the home front.

it had been around 2 years since the last time i was sick. worse, it was after coming back from a business trip. definitely thought there was a chance it was covid but it was mostly a runny/stuffy nose.
got tested, negative. took about two full days to get rid of it. still have a bit of a dry throat because of it.
i worked from home and it wasnt fun lol
not feeling today at all. the lack of organization and steady direction from above is taking a toll. some days i feel like i can step in to help, today im wondering why i havent applied elsewhere.

great team. great manager. everyone gets along. seems like some folks are really busy and others, like me, might get some work to do. that work is something like put a call together or update the status. you know, real heavy lifting.
with that extra time, I prepared and taught a class to internal folks. did some volunteering on things outside my comfort zone. joined various groups related to where I'm trying to get. also got 4 certs over the past couple of years. a lot of studying on work time.
now it's time for the next job to pop. interview this week went really well.
it came up on my news feed a couple weeks back and i found the question funny. the advice wasnt bad but i dont think its likely to be followed.
in trying to find it i came across others complaining that their employee was playing video games after they were done with their workload and was trying to fire them. all the responses were calling him out for trying to fire his most efficient worker lol

How is this a problem? Give them more work. If there isn't more work to do, see if they are inclined to move up, and then give them some of their bosses work to do. Or re calibrate the workload so that he does just a little bit more, thereby making everyone's life a little easier.

I miss the ocean. I used to be able to see it from my balcony.
