When someone is struggling with proper use of vocabulary, sometimes it's best, unless it's outright blasphemy, to lead by example or even with humor.
Cool! I'm scheduled for a hybrid work environment pretty soon too, from full WFH. One nice aspect of this I am going to appreciate is being able to go out to lunch once a week with my co-workers. That'll be a good way to socialize with some really good folks, and one of them I know is based, so that'll be fun. Hope you have a similar thing going on!Good news from my neck of the woods: my supervisor just approved me to work from home, at least in the short term, 3 or 4 days a week!!! Just 1 or 2 days a week in the office is totally doable and I can even imagine that this arrangement will be enjoyable. It's a relatively cool office with great people. He says eventually they'll probably want us back full time, but of course I'm already rallying the team to prove that we can handle a hybrid model with no major issues and it can work as a long-term arrangement.
They've seemed so old-school and stodgy about this all along, so I'm just thrilled that they're showing some flexibility.
From the moment I found out I was due back full time, I've been full of dread and borderline depressed. Now it's like a light switch has been turned on and I feel like myself again. Eeeeeee!
Honestly, I'm super lucky. My office is downtown and I have a huge window with a beautiful skyline view. I'm working on a super cool project that's going to be a radical transformation for the better.Cool! I'm scheduled for a hybrid work environment pretty soon too, from full WFH.

One upside is that when the trends become so extreme, the wheat becomes visibly separated from the chaff.Also, this is kind of in the "weird things you've been noticing lately" category. My husband and I went to the beach for a few days, and there was a huge uptick of non-binary/trans whatever people compared to last year (granted, last year we went on vacation when most people were staying home, so we didn't see much of anybody). Women with scraggly beards and men with breasts.
One couple was a girl wearing a long skirt because she had hairy legs, and a long-sleeved blouse. Almost looked Mennonite tbh (but obviously wasn't). The man had long hair but was wearing a skirt and Birkenstocks and a cross-body purse. They probably would have just been goths or punks 20-25 years ago.
I feel like the trans thing is a kind of autism where they can't relate to the opposite sex because they're DIFFERENT. It's really unsettling to see all these people wandering around on a boardwalk at night, though.

Those who forsake their humanism and the Grace of God, in favor of the "easy path" offered by The Enemy, mark themselves in many ways, and it has never been so obvious as it is now.
"You weren't licking EVERY toilet seat, right?"Was asked if I had the stabbo several times, said "nope" each time; the nurse practitioner asked, "but you are being CAREFUL, RIGHT?" and then it was dropped.

Yup, dealing with the medical system right now is scarier than ever. I'm pretty sure my ACL (or MCL, or PCL ) is torn; I hobble around anyway. Anyone have a spare sewing kit?
Definitely stop following the news. I haven’t in over a year (except for basic election coverage) and it’s great. Between that and little to no social media exposure, looking back I can’t even imagine how much time I wasted following junk that gets everyone riled up but ultimately doesn’t matter at all in the big picture.I'm feeling very tired, resting and sleeping more than usual, having a hard time focusing on work. On one hand I think I need to stop reading the news... on the other hand, it's such a train wreck it's hard to look away, and I feel I need to know what's going on to prepare myself. I'm tired thinking about what I may be going through in the future as I continue to refuse the vaccine. But... one day at a time, I suppose.
