It's summer time for most of the continental US OP. Go outside and enjoy the weather. Studies show that a 30 minute walk can reduce the likelihood of depression. Also what's your side hustle? Start pursuing that or make your next move :)! Good luck with the new gig search obviously reach out to your network and what not. But enjoy the downtime too! Smell the roses 🌹.

Lazy is a word. Apply for jobs? Tuh. Who does that? Don't you get recruited by friends and former associates or clients into opportunities because they know you and know you can get it done?

Scenario: You wrote a report with all the analysis and addressed your manager's comments. But your M brings in an undergrad intern to comment / edit your report, and the intern proceeds to essentially rewrite the thing, causing it to miss some key requirements.

I'm reading the situation as the M wanting to include the intern regardless of his/her contributions/qualifications. But this isn't making the report better or addressing the M's needs for the report. It's just creating more work...
