Slightly lost it yesterday, couldn't handle the idea of going to work again and repeating the same fucking week all over again. Yet here I am.
We've actually been busier than ever the past two weeks in work, a huge launch was happening and all that. It's finished now so I don't know what's next. I get the distinct impression my boss, who really holds the whole ship together, might have pushed herself over the edge with stress.
6am-7am, sometimes earlier: kids wake us up. Try to go back to sleep.
8am: alarm on phone goes off
9am: try to get out of bed
9:15am: fire up the work email to see what’s gone wrong/who’s looking for stuff/who’s giving out
10am: daily team VC. Sometimes over in 3 minutes, sometimes 45. Usually followed by one or more one to one VCs about specific problems, followed by:
11:30am: might have a crisp sandwich? Sometimes.
1:30pm: might have a small lunch?
2:30pm: usually an afternoon VC. Can be 2-3 hours depending on the specifics, sometimes longer
5pm: start being given out to for not leaving the house
Work on things that have been left undone because of video conferences
6pm: begrudgingly leave the house for a walk with child who’d rather play Fortnite dragged along
6:30pm: Kids, maybe a quick duos match or two in Fortnite with the boy (bribe for getting him to go for a walk)
Kids bedtime, dishes, house stuff
9pm: check what was missed in work
Try to catch up on internet/news/relax(ha) until brain has switched off
Breakfast. etymologically to break the fast that people engage in by going to bed/sleep.
Anyone who tells you they don't eat breakfast is either a liar or a hunger striker of some sort. Regardless of time of day the first meal you eat is breaking the fast.
Lunch, essentially 'lump' - a lump fo stuff that people brought with them out labouring, again, not time dependent and not based on coming in tupperware, not transforming into brunch because it has a sausage in it. Just a lump, could be 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th meal of the day really.
Dinner. Dis-juener* from old french->latin To break ones fast. Thats right folks. Dinner is breakfast. There is no dinner. The only way to to have 'dinner' is to not eat from the moment you get up, skip lunch and then eat a meal and it will technically be dinner but its just fucking breakfast at the end of the day.
So you can have breakfast and you can have lunch, but dinner doesn't exist. Its just another lunch. Anyone tells you different, show them this thread.
