Ahhh - still its an interesting viewpoint, having to "sell oneself" to everyone. Just "be yourself"

Q: How do I approach feeling unappreciated for taking care of my girlfriend's niece for two months?

Taunoo Spurred by the quarantine, girlfriend[27] and I[29] hastily moved in after two months of dating back in June. Around our three month mark, her 12 year old niece was subjected to serious trauma from her abusive mother and psychotic sister (professionally diagnosed). Having come from an abusive hom...

And I survived another day of work! Woohoo!
Which includes a piece of actual, working, software. And I had 6 out of 8 hours to work on that, uninterrupted. That's a record for 2021, I think.
 
@Tinkeringbell yay :)
@Tinkeringbell ooh, getting 6h non-stop is a challenge
 
@CaldeiraG It was only interrupted by a coworker 'wanting to chat'.
Otherwise, I could've done 8.
 
@Tinkeringbell busy day huh :P
@Tinkeringbell :) damn ya
gotta work 10h now XDD
(please don't) :P
 
@CaldeiraG Oh, I didn't. I also turned down the offer of a chat with a 'I was just in a really nice flow, and want to finish my actual work' XD Maybe that's a subtle enough hint.
 
@Tinkeringbell that works :P
i'm happy no one wants to chat with me
apart from the usual issue or thing that doesn't work

This was the whiny coworker... she somehow keeps trying, it's getting rather desperate. I'm this close to actually asking our scrum master to deal with it, and just reporting her for ruining productivity.
 
We're caught in that dynamics of meetings, fine-grain specification discussions, processing of code review and releasing I don't really know what is productivity anymore
I'm the top performer of my team with an average of 6 issues done on 2 week average. And that includes small tasks
Idk our time just goes into sinks

@ArthurHv Yeah, the past few weeks have been like that for me too. Fix bugs, the number of about 6 issues on 2 weeks seems to fit. And then those fixes come with a bunch of talking before and after .... it's kinda hard to automate a process, especially if there isn't really a process :P
That, and I have two coworkers that regularly want to chat. The first one is the whiny one I've mentioned regularly, the other is a coworker I used to have regular coffee moments (2 a week) with before covid started. The danger of chatting with him is that it easily turns into an hour long of not working, while the coffee moments were at least limited to 15-20 minutes because that's how long it takes to drink coffee XD

hi
I watched a video about one method of synthesis of benzene (toxic and carcinogenic liquid that is mainly responsible for the smell of gasoline), the result was dirty because of contamination with impurities so then it was distilled into a crystal clear liquid; the comments under the video said "in Poland/Russia you've just made a moonshine" :D
