my father will take a trip to a new place and turn it into a rigid and unforgiving set of directions, a checklist that goes for 14 hours a day, 7 days a week
it is fortunate that the vacation only lasts seven days
last year I hit this like existential low tide where I felt like I wanted to just exit the vacation and transport myself home ASAP
I had not eaten in hours and I was exhausted and overstimulated and then my dad announced our arrival at a nationally famous crime scene
weird work rant, metaphor
the coffee mug my boss gave me has like weird fractures at the bottom
it is cracked and the crack is expanding and stained and someday this mug will break and I won't work here anymore
I feel like this mug is my career here, needed in the moment but not slowly breaking apart inside, headed towards a day where it is going to stop working for me entirely
