I feel your pain! I'm a senior audit manager in a large accounting firm and I alternate between answering unproductive emails and taking unproductive calls, as opposed to actually doing any accounting :lol:

I send those emails in the capacity of The Client.

I get money from the government for being semi-sick and semi-unemployed while also doing a few things but it's a long story and you don't want to know the red tape involved kthxbye

Basically I'm partially disabled :D

How can you "just be yourself" when you don't know who you are?
Stop saying "Yeah, I know how you feel."
How could anyone know how another feels?

Retired and working on my (back-of-the-book) indexer certification.

And husband and dad, which is both harder and way more rewarding.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.
