I always want to use the weekend to catch up on work or projects but then if I actually have a really productive weekend (like this weekend) I resent that I didn't get a break. One might suspect that the problem in this equation is not the work.

@phire I find I feel better about taking weekends off now that I'm out of academia and working part-time

@DialMforMara I went back to school while still working and I'm now in the two week break between spring and summer term but still working, so yeah, extra workaholism.

@phire employers want you to squeeze blood from a stone, and if you squeeze hard enough blood will flow. There's just one problem, the blood is yours.
