Don’t be silly. Plenty of EY’ers taking afternoon naps.

EY3, I just let my status stay on 'away'. No one has ever said anything. Sometimes have it on away for the whole day.

Pre-covid I would routinely go to my car during lunch and take a nap. I’d recline the car seat all the way back and cover my face with a sweatshirt or something to block light. I’d set an alarm to make sure I didn’t sleep for too long. Worked great when I was really dragging.

I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.

I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up. Do all the work given to me, pass my tests, follow up with people to look to get on an engagement. I feel like Im doing fine but WFH I feel very lost and alone as to what I’m supposed to be doing. Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?

Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)

Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
