Congratulations to all of us!
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Thank goodness.  Had me worried there a bit.

Really not doing well. I got signed off of work for the month of April because work just got too much, which it was getting to without the lockdown. But not being able to properly see my friends and no physical separation of work and home life (I have to work in my room as I deal with sensitive information) meant that I finally broke down.

And I haven't gotten any better in the interim. If anything, I have got worse, as I'm now dreading that first phone call or the first time I finish something and five more emails have come in. Or the next time I say how I'm struggling and I'm told off. I could take another month off, but this would be at half pay and neither of my parents (who I still live with) really have jobs at the moment. I could quit, but then I'd be in the same position I was in two and half years ago, and it took me nearly two years to get to this point of actually employed. I could hold on and still look for a new job, but it genuinely makes me suffer being in this position, with a terrible manager and never-ending stream of crap that isn't going to change any time soon.

I tried explaining this to occupational health, but all they had to say was "lots of people hate their jobs" like that doesn't suggest a serious issue in our society.

So yeah, not doing well at all.

I work at Walmart, so I'm not locked down. Someone at my store was confirmed to have it yesterday. We don't get paid leave unless we prove we have it.

My little brother is making twice my income from unemployment. He wasn't fired because of coronavirus, he just got lucky.

Switched jobs from McDonald's to Trader Joe's in the middle of all this ****... So I'm doing alright. Not working 40 hrs a week but I still have an income stream, which is something a lot are struggling with right now, so I'm grateful. 20% discount on groceries is more useful right now than one free fast food meal a day for sure.

i was planning on moving to germany next thursday, that aint happening. still went ahead with quitting my job of 4 years and ive just sat down from totally cleaning my apartment and packing up all my ****, because im moving back in with my parents tomorrow.

i'm fine though! i feel a little bad because you guys all seem to be having really rough gos of it whereas i've just had all my plans turn to mush. i still have my savings and my entire family lives at home so im just gonna be spending the next couple months ****ing around on my computer and waiting for it to be ok to move to berlin.

edit: lol i forgot this forum has a swear filter, so weird
