I’ve been drowning at work. It’s been going on for weeks. Most days, I’m at the office from six in the morning until at least five at night. I don’t take a lunch break much anymore. I’m deeply unhappy, here.
I want to skip the firm holiday party and our usual luncheon, but I know I should go.
It feels like nothing on my to-do list can ever wait long enough for me to finish whatever it is I’m working on. I’m trying really hard not to check out on the job emotionally, but it’s really difficult when you feel like basically all you’re doing is failing for eleven to twelve hours a day, five days a week.
I need to get out of this.
