10% chance they’ll get FT return offer at the biotech company. So likely be unemployed again after 6 months fwiw

You know the answer to this

I would take the FT role but keep looking for something better

Just started a new role in industry 2 months ago and my manager sent me a long email today saying he is not happy with my performance and is not at par with my level. He also pointed out list of instances when my submissions were late. Some of the things I agree but not all. Should I reply back or talk about it on our one on one and what to respond. They might be building a case to let me go.

It’s been 2 months since I quit work. It took that long to feel “normal” again. My friends have been saying I seem happier. I picked up some old hobbies again and started exercising! There are days when lack of productivity makes me anxious. A part of me then wishes I could have been like this while still working in PA. Maybe if I’d tried harder, I could have had a decent work like balance? Still, I am starting to believe that quitting was the best decision for me. 💕
