Ahh, to be in your 20s and a workaholic. I didn't have a work-life balance for most of my 20s. There was a sense that work itself was virtuous - and in a way I guess it was worthwhile, since it was largely my own work. Now there's all kind of messaging about self-care and not grinding oneself down too hard. But at the same time we're all up to our ears in social media, which kind of IS work? Or at least this state where we're not able to look back and reflect - only stay engaged in the present. What does a person do when they truly leave work behind? Maybe more importantly, who are they? These were questions for me and for Hanna.
