The Panda Bear on Time Stress and Being on the Clock
Since the part of the Panda Bear Blog is about time stress, the Panda Bear wanted to share with her readers some interesting articles she has found about time stress.
The first is from an editor of the The Atlantic Monthly saying that only Yuppies felt time stressed. The Panda Bear agrees to some extent with the article in stating that it time stress is a problem for people who are working and don’t have serious financial problems. However, the Panda Bear and Mr. Panda are in no way “Yuppies”. They are just ordinary Panda Bears who are time stressed.
This editor references an article by a The Atlantic cover story on why women can’t have it all. The Panda Bear wants to point out that this very smart and talented
Princeton professor did not realize what it is to be on
the clock until she worked for the state department. The Panda Bear believes that many so called
experts have no idea of what it is like to be on the clock. The Panda Bear works literally on the clock.
The Panda Bear gets frustrated with so-called experts who say flexible hours are the future of work when so many jobs still have set hours.
Finally, the Panda Bear wanted to share on link from www.boston.com on families being time stressed and living in clutter. The Panda Bear felt slightly superior because even though her apartment is a total mess(the Panda Bear does not have time to/hates cleaning), she has gotten rid of a lot of clutter in her limited “free time”
