the stress of moving to another country + the stress of the immigration process for Mr. Gray are super distracting to me and it's been really hard to focus, you know?

Yeah I have my excuses ready just in case.


And what might those excuses be?


"Why was I browsing Amazon? Well, I was going to get you something..."

"Why am I on Facebook? Just networking with a client, don't worry."

"Why am I on TLS? Well I'll have you know I'm a well-respected shitpoaster..."

I actually put my Username as my middle name on my resume so they can check out what great work I've done in the on-topics over the last couple months. I also mention it again under pro-bono/volunteer work for emphasis.

Those are pretty good, but the problem with any excuse is that they keep the focus on your behavior. My plan for this inevitability is to interrupt my supervisor with a, "Are you hitting on me? I'm sorry but I'm not interested, and this conversation is making me uncomfortable, so we are going to need to call in a union rep if you want to continue."

Uh yeahhh. If these people haven't realized that I've been doing 0 work the last few weeks, they're on another planet. I think the nervous minimizing/shoulder checking will stop once I formally resign (I hope).

LAST! DAY! LAST! DAY!

Sticking around Chicago until Memorial Day, then got a friend to housesit for me in June so I can roadtrip out to Vancouver, Seattle, and CA. So unbelievably psyched/terrified.

Hey if you're not stuck behind a desk you may not actually need TLS any more.

There's been a definite lack of decision threads/senioritis activity so far this morning. It's gotten to the point where I'm considering doing real work...before lunch.

Yeah, it's quiet here. And I actually don't have anything to do at work this morning. Always the way.

I always do my real work before lunch and then nothing after lunch.
