I just look at myself in the mirror and (mentally) yell at myself for being a fat and lazy piece of shit. That usually helps distract me from the facts that it’s 5am and my that trainer genuinely delights in my pain.

I feel for the people in the path of hurricanes. As much as I hate the desert heat I’m so glad we don’t really have too many weather “events”. I’m curious about the places that just got slammed with hurricane Ida. Obviously school is not a priority when so many people have other, much worse things to deal with, but I’m curious as to how that affects the number of school days in the areas hard hit. Please excuse the ignorance.

I work at a very small consultancy (under 10 employees) at a managerial level. The only person above me is the company founder. I work on a few ongoing consulting projects and manage all HR processes. I am currently on £27k which I know is very below market rate, but it’s difficult to compare my role at a tiny company to a comparable HR managerial role at a bigger company that could be paying double that. Is it worth asking for £35k?
