One client (VP level) liked to wear nice suits, but instead of a shirt he’d have on these Lycra cycling tops (with the team and sponsor logos), he had dozens of different ones. We had a meeting with the CEO once, so he wore a shirt and tie, the tie had a bicycle motif. Dude liked cycling.

I’m preparing to put my two weeks in at work. I’m not worried about leaving the company, but I’m nervous about leaving my team while we’re knee-deep in a project. I’ll be around for shooting and early editing our commercial (which is the bulk of the campaign), and I’m definitely able to hand off other small tasks, but I can’t help but feel anxious to tell them I’m leaving. Is this a normal feeling?

Started out hating Zoom depos. Kind of like them now. In hour two of a co-defendant’s examination, which is entirely irrelevant to my client, and I’ve clipped my nails, stretched fully, planned a hike for the weekend, ordered my home goods off Amazon, and it’s all billable time because I’m stuck on this thing.

I just needed to post this where people could relate. I’m 6 weeks along, constantly exhausted, and feeling a low level of queasiness all day. I’ve lost motivation to solve the most basic problems (like convincing my toddler she needs shoes to go outside) let alone run my project and lead proposals. I’m sure it’ll get better in the second trimester, but right now I spend the day counting down the minutes until bedtime. Any tips for survival are welcome!
