Ugh I feel like a bad person. I’m staying with a friend on vacation and I’m getting annoyed with her. But she’s been so generous to host me. She can be difficult but she’s a good person and a dear friend to me.

You’re right, this is exactly what I need!

It happens! Even with my best friend bc we didn’t really live together I got annoyed too. Take some time alone and it will help!

There aren't many people I can stay with for more than 3 days without getting annoyed. At this point, I just use points to stay at hotels.

This happens to me every time I visit this one friend and when I come home I say I will never visit again and I’m annoyed for like a whole week. I feel like it’s just something I deal with since I never get to see them and I know how happy it makes them when I visit. I agree with the alone time. Maybe go for a walk, ask to run an errand, lock yourself in the bathroom, etc lol

Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
