I need out of M&A. I like the people, I like the work, I even like most of the clients, but my health can’t take the fire drills. Currently on on a day where I literally got back from A&E and I’m probably going to work overnight on a closing (and no, it’s neither the partners’ nor clients’ fault, this is government dictated). We have resource but nobody with enough deal knowledge so it’s two people trying to get everything out while two first years wait on our instructions but can’t do much.

I looked down at my boobs yesterday and they were wrinkly and old and I’m only in my 30’s. It took my aging cleavage for me to realize that this is what the stress of advertising does to you...it sucks the life out of you, it ages you. And it robs you of so much more than an a nice pair of tits. It steals you away from your loved ones during the times that matter, your health, and your self-compassion. And this is when I realized I have to quit this Industry.

I got my child vaccinated today. He is 6. It’s what his school and pediatrician recommended. We live in downtown NYC, we were here when it hit, and it was hardcore. I had doubts about the 5-11 vax, read the data, had theories in my head, but decided to do it, so I’m at the clean, calm site, hugging my boy as the needle goes in. After, we got ice cream and the street vendor saw his vaccination sticker and said, “Welcome to the club, kid.” I love you, New York. This is for him, and for you.

Renters/homeowners/earthquake insurance ?: I’m reviewing my renewal policy docs for my renters and earthquake policies (im in Los Angeles). I’m 32F 🐠 single no kids. I own enough stuff to fill a 2 bedroom apartment if one room were an office/misc storage stuff. Currently am in a 4bd/4bath town house with 2 roommates. I’ve had these policies for 10+ years but truthfully haven’t read or paid much attention to limits or terms in the past (I also didn’t own much for most of that time).

I’ve reached ACD level and just come to realize I don’t think this is for me. I’ve struggled to force feed myself media and always trying to keep up with the latest content. Have worked on mental health the last few months and most of the activities I enjoy feel removed from this. But at this point have invested so many years (30s here). I still would like to pursue my own creative endeavors, but take a step back from that being a job. Has anyone else crossed this point? What did you do?
