Burnout is a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. It can occur when you experience long-term stress in your job, or when you have worked in a physically or emotionally draining role for a long time. You can also experience burnout when your efforts at work have failed to produce the results that you expected, and you feel deeply disillusioned as a result.
You might be experiencing burnout if you:

Unfortunately I forgot most of my dreams from last night except for part of my last dream, and that dream took place during the day in the city of D.
I was working at a slightly fictional version of the Dollar General on Eastside probably stocking shelves and cleaning, and there were at least two female coworkers working with me.
This building had two stores in it with a small clothing store on the left side of the building and the Dollar General store on the right side of the building, there was no wall separating each store so they were in one open building, and the only thing that separated them was a hard white and black floor that was basically a walkway that went straight through most of the building and started at the entrance door or doors.
As I worked I remember thinking and…

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that some people were talking about the mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey, and at some point Ronda Rousey showed up surprisingly to give a brief press conference.
Ronda Rousey acknowledged her loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, she even actually said something positive toward Amanda Nunes and how she won their fight that I can not remember (I am not sure if she really meant it though, it somewhat sounded like something people just say because it is expected, and so it sounded a bit empty and scripted), and she said that she wants to fight again in the UFC one day in the future so she is not retiring yet.

Are you familiar with the phrase “Je est un autre”? In English, it translates to “I is another,” and in French it is equally incorrect from a grammatical point of view. French poet Arthur Rimbaud wrote it when he was sixteen years of age in the mid 1800’s. His poetry became famous, arguably increasingly famous after his death, but he permanently abandoned poetry ‘by age twenty and left France to pursue a (rather successful) career as a merchant and arms dealer in Africa.
What did the phrase mean? And, why did he abandon poetry, given his gift?
Rimbaud and Yahoo Answers
His poetry, and particularly this phrase “Je est un autre,” has been the subject of a growing body of speculation and commentary. I found this handful of answers on “Yahoo Answers.”
I disagree with the selection of “best answer” (which reeks of psychobabble), and think the better answer is…
