Love this essay. Definitely makes everything feel superficial, and like our work doesn't matter, which it doesn't.

This article makes me so sad. I have such a creative belief in good, creative work. I love brining new, amazing ideas to life. I have seen the creative process, and even the production process, slowly get choked out. The clients don't respect what they're missing out on in the most of speed. I wish I could reverse it all sometimes....

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)

What's the general consensus on how to handle an exit? Do I warn my team and my mentor(s) that I'm going to be putting in my two weeks, or do I put in my two weeks and then inform my team and mentor(s) that I did? Excited to be moving on, but I really don't want to burn bridges or step on toes.

1yr of work experience at MBB -- prior experience was in non-profit / community development. What exits could allow me to stay in the private sector that aren't consulting? I think exiting to Tech or a bank is unlikely with no prior experience; I want to eventually return to non profit work, but still want to spend the next few years in the private sector (tbh, just for the experience and so my MBA didn't go to waste). Any ideas?
