Hey everyone, thanks for the anniversary posts & thread - very cool. Sorry Iíve been absent for a while, Iíll do better in the next HoF, very annoying of me, I know. Should have followed @Takoma11ís example and sat this one out given the chaos that surrounds me - but then we know sheís far wiser than me. Thing is, Iíve decided to leave my job, which is no easy decision to make in a pandemic, especially as I havenít been there long, but there are no words to describe how much I hate it, itís like physical torture. Probably sounds v. arrogant, but what can you do.

So my Jan-Feb period has been consumed with that and choosing where to make the switch to - and thinking I must be mad to even consider it. Iím hopefully back now & will spend as much time here as before. Everything is pretty damn depressing in London as far as Iím concerned, so Iíve been watching very vintage things like ĎTouch of Evilí, which doesnít seem to assuage anxiety as well as hardcore horror. Last night I rewatched ĎZodiací which was my first post-1950s film in nearly a month.

Edit: this morning I bought weed for the first time in my life due to all of the above, so thereís something to celebrate.

It feels weird to thumbs up this post, since it sounds like you are having a heck of a winter. I hope that your job search goes well. I have almost no friends who have regretted leaving jobs they hated, even if it was challenging in the month or two of changing their job.

I'm glad you're back!

I missed you too and everyone here. Makes sense re: the thumbs up, felt equally weird writing it when I donít really have any tangible problems to speak of. I know itís the right decision, but pretty terrifying nonetheless.

My niece who lives ďover the riverĒ in London recently recovered from a week of COVID. She must be all of 24 & was working remotely. So scary there.

My dentist & I were discussing what would make us feel better on Monday. I said Vicodin & her hygienist said Xanax. We had a good laugh at least. I cried my eyes out earlier in the visit since itís now confirmed that I either need a root canal or an extraction next month.

Poor thing, Iím glad sheís better. It really is quite scary tbh. I think itís wiser to work from home, though I would say that - my boss insists on everyone coming into the office, so we do.

You never know how itíll affect you - I have a 30-y-o coworker who got it in June and never recovered. He was working from home (he was really ill so no objections there) so we never realised how bad it was but he never returned to the office, never returned to full-time work and recently resigned. Heís fine physically, but it took a toll on him.
