Me too! I had the unfortunate experience of being under a huge deadline and a toxic work situation (that has gotten waaay better!) - so I worked like a dog while I watched everyone on social media purge, bake bread, start new hobbies... and I worked 60 to 70 hour weeks...
However, once things have sorted and I have… Read more
I have a couple of male collegues who basically went feral...and it wasn’t a good look...even the one who has beautiful hair a la David Cassidy... but the Grizzly Adams beard that came with it *shudder*

Trust me, I’m working on my exit strategies. Both short and near term.
It could be that I get pushed out on the other hand, they need me for my talents and abilities. The market for my field is still pretty strong.
For now, I am going to fight to stay way I am, but ultimately, my days will likely be numbered in a big… Read more
