Confession: I don't feel like working. At all. I'm so in need of a vacation. I spend 3/5 days gaming at home and do my sprint assignments in the last two, because I'm so fucking good at what I do. Been working like this for weeks now.

Last summer vacation I really had was fucked up by a PO calling me about the project expectations wanting me to really explain the technical decisions to stakeholders, because the schedule kept getting shorter and that caused me huge amounts of anxiety. I left the company next year. They even contacted me later asking if I had any interest coming back. No fucking chance.

Didnt have any vacation days for last summer. Now I'm in a really nice position where I don't have to really give a shit about the project I'm working on so I can just ignore work completely during my vacation. Gonna delete my email from my phone and disconnect Slack. Fuck work.

    If the workplace doesn’t force you to have mails and slack/teams on your personal phone then you should never have them. And if the workplace is forcing that, you should change jobs.

    Enjoy your holiday!

    So you are gaming during work times ?

    Ask for more work or find a new project that can improve work related stuff.

    (Or a personal project since you are working from home)

    But, yeah been there done that in lockdown xD
