Just have to maintain a long term perspective and try to figure out how this experience will fit with your long term goals. Odds are you'll move somewhere else in the next few years, so just realize that there's an end to all this BS. Also, make sure you're making time for yourself. It's worth taking the heat for missing a few emails if you're doing something to keep you sane.

The above. Also weekend trips, hobbies that get you outside, random weekday concerts every once in a while to get out of the office. Basically stuff to do so you aren't just sleeping, working and drinking.
