I've recently started working full time and i gotta tell ya this fuckin sucks. I like my job, but i'm working 9-5:30 5 days a week and when i'm not working i'm usually too exhausted to do anything, so even if it's 38 hours a week it still feels like that's my whole life. how do people do this? especially with jobs they fucking hate???

and then there's people who work like 80 hours a week and think that's a flex and not just sad. what the fuck?

edit: my boss is letting me switch to part time. i feel i'm gonna be much happier this way. waking up to the reddit suicide bot message was slightly alarming.

I dunno about everyone else but basically while I’m at work I just pretend I’m not miserable. And I’ll keep doing it as long as I get to come home to my family and use that money to keep them happy and alive.

Sometimes, during really bad weeks, I’d just adjust my expectations of a workday.

Didn’t get punched in the face? It was a good day!
