Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays

Guys, I'm here just to talk with people mostly like me. I live at Brazil and the unemployment here it is huge, economics going so crazy and every day going more down. I had an Depression Crises at the middle of 2018 and even made a lot of progress I still feel burned out. I think I will never be myself again and now I just accept remote jobs because stay in a office a day long make me want to die. Now I am looking for a job and sometimes I think will not handle more.
