Sometimes working can feel, well, like working.
While having a job is fulfilling and necessary for most, it can be a total slog at times. Bosses are bossy, coworkers are nosy, and technology only cooperates when it wants to. When work just won’t throw you a bone, know that you’re not alone. Not to quote High School Musical, but “we’re all in this together.”
