First week back in the office after vacation and I am ready for another one. I don’t know how it is already January 2018! Anyone feel the same?

I am with you. I felt like it’s 2017 but worse. And I’m fatter.

When you’re working all day everyday they go by fast

Yes I feel exactly the same way, days do go quickly when there is work to do - but still I’m always ready for vacation... and I’m fatter

My management brag about how little PTO they take - it makes me not look up to them but rather pity them & think I'm in the wrong firm. No one regrets the days they didn't work on their death bed.

Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)

I have the option to give three weeks notice and still take four weeks off in between jobs but feel guilty that I can afford to be unpaid for so long. Anyone regret taking so much time off between jobs or regret not taking more time off?

A big surprise challenge in wfh has been my spouse seeing me around the house and expecting me to help out with daily chores and helping with kids then getting frustrated when I’m not able to get up and help. Our whole marriage, when I’ve been home that means I’m not working and can help her out with things, but now that rhythm has changed and it’s hard. Anyone else going through this? Hoping we’re not the only ones 🤞🤞😬
