Nothing can make me care anymore. I do the bare minimum and just wait for people to notice so I can get fired… I know I can do a better job but I can’t find the motivation at all, like what I’m doing just doesn’t matter. Existential crisis?

Hey Fish, A job just called and asked me to bid a job without payment until it’s awarded (were the single bidder). I was laid off in March and haven’t produced since then, so I don’t mind doing the first bit pro bono, but my wife (also a freelancer) doesn’t think I should work for free. Opinions?

Just me or is it really difficult to create circles and lasting friend groups after 30 here? Moved here in 2019 which at the point was getting my bearings, in 2020 was layoffs and lockdowns and this year was also layoffs and regaining. Eat dinner solo a lot and it sucks. But also just getting people (man/woman no difference) to say yes to casually going and getting food and various places is like pulling teeth.
