Drake laughed. “Therapist, Physician, in these these careers you’re always on call just a little bit.” He looked out the window for a second. “Maybe I’ll actually take my annual leave next year and celebrate.” Drake returned to the conversation at hand. “Did you do anything special to celebrate 20?”

“Not exactly. But then again it’s come with a major promotion and career change, so you could say I’m constantly in the process of evaluating where I’m at right now. I’m still settling into the role I think,” Dira said with a pensive smile. “But leave is good, use it. Sometimes we need space away from our everyday routine to see what is and isn’t working in our lives. And you might have the right idea too. Maybe I should do something more specific to celebrate,” she said with a shrug.

Drake returned the shrug. “I’ve heard from people far more mentally healthy than myself that marking milestones is satisfying. You know I wouldn’t even begin to know where to go or what to do with leave? I usually just take a week on the ship when someone tells me I have to, and nothing special happens.”

“Maybe it’s a chance next time to try something new. But there’s also nothing wrong with having some quiet downtime. Our work can be busy enough that it’s not necessary to fill up your time off with ding stuff if you don’t want to. Prioritizing and appreciating rest can go a long way to preventing burnout.”

“Well that’s news to me. Rest is foreign, my body treats it as a pathogen.” Drake chuckled. “You know, it’s easy to say we’re overworked, we have too much pressure on us in Starfleet Medical, maybe the fleet in general. But, I don’t know about you,” he looked out the window “I wouldn’t be anywhere else.”
