Hi, so I’ve been working as a (TCP temporary creative professional) while one of the agency’s employees was on leave. I understood it to be a FT position, clocking in, etc but last week a bunch of employees were on vacation and I didn’t get projects. My work from the week before was all approved, so I had no edits. I asked for work, reached out, etc but ended up with very few billable hours, which annoyed the bosses. Now I’m not sure how to proceed. Do I NGAF, clock in? Or wait for work?

Hi Ladies, Im in my end 20s and feel like my life is passing by and everyday feels the same. I just came back from a weekend trip with my family and I always feel that I can’t enjoy it 100%. My mind is not present. When I’m on vacation I think about work and want to get back to work and missing all the great quality time I supposed to have. When I’m working I want to go on vacation. I hate this feeling and it’s driving me insane. Do you have any advice?
