I have stepped into December with total apathy towards work. Just came back from vacation so I don’t feel like I need to rest. Just no desire at all to do anything and I can’t find the motivation. I am also in the process of looking for other job opportunities but nothing seems to excite me. Has anyone ever felt the same way? Maybe it’s just a period that will pass on its own? Any advice will be appreciated🙏

Fun holiday gifts for friends/fam under $50?
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
Job A or B? A = 135k normal hours 50ish a week. 15 days PTO. Better room for growth / advancement. B = 115k 30-35 a week - unlimited PTO. Only person in my department, less growth.
