Ever since I was let go two months ago (I have been looking for a job, no luck) I have done nothing with my free time. I'm not doing anything productive but just watch Netflix all day and browse the internet. While at my old job I dreamed of a long vacation. Is it depression? Laziness? I have no idea. Any ideas?

I would suggest trying to get up at a reasonable time in the morning, doing a brief workout or walk of even twenty minutes, and then showering and getting dressed decently. Try to get out of the house even for a bagel or a cup of coffee. Maybe try thinking of some things you could do now that in the future, you could look back on and be happy with how you spent your time.

I would say burnout too. I'm looking forward to a 2-week vacation after 10/15 and I'm imagining most of that time being netflix haha. Maybe try going for a walk and getting some fresh air even for just 10 minutes, it could help to clear your head.

Is it a vacation if your boss emails every 10 minutes *around the clock*? Stupid me let IT install Outlook on my phone. PEOPLE. If you are in leadership, have the good sense not to email your team ‘round the clock. ESPECIALLY if your employees have been generous enough to use their personal phones to keep in touch. They need a break from work and a break from you. Every time your name pops up on their screen, it’s a micro PTSD moment. Put that shit in your outbox and send it in the morning.

How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).
