Anxious people, rise up!!!

Happy Sunday-after-a-federal-holiday night, girls, gays, and theys! You know what that means: the wave of unspeakable anxiety and dread usually reserved for Sunday evenings is back with a vengeance. This is the moment when you realize that maybe those naps and long walks and (hopefully remote) socializing could have put you further behind on your work. It’s especially bad because now you feel all guilty and shit for not using your time off for work.

I’m here to tell you that yes, your dread is probably a fair assessment of the mountain load of work ahead of you, but also that IT IS TOTALLY NORMAL TO TAKE A BREAK, PANDEMIC OR NOT!!! Literally, now is not the time to beat yourself up about your work or school performance in this hell year. All we can do is keep our communities and our loved ones safe by continuing to social distance, minimizing our time doing non-essential errands, and getting tested regularly. Your work will be okay, I promise. And if not, you can yell at me all you want.

That said…uhh…help!!! I feel like I am going to puke!
