the survey requester who rejected me (Wonkyung Kim) responded to my msg:

Hello Jake,

I trust you and will take care of undoing rejection.

Thank you.


never trust a guy that has Wonky in their name...

and you call yourself a turker :cautious:


:p
That's actually a pretty generous estimate. I probably spent about 10 hours total last week. It really depends on what my mental/physical health is doing on any given week, but generally I shoot for 30-40. If I push any harder than that, then that's when I start seeing my health take a dive, leading to 10 hour weeks like last week.

yeah it does prey on your health, mental mainly IMO, but i am working everyday 12-16 hours and have been pretty much since i started 4 years ago, i have not missed a day even if i only do a few HIT's, i make sure i get some work in, trying to keep my streak going for as long as i can, it's a dumb goal/streak but it gives me something lol

no. That's just too stressful. I would like donuts, though. Donuts are not stressful, especially the chocolate ones.
This is true. I can't say that I've ever felt stressed out around a chocolate donut. There's a place near here that makes chocolate donuts coated in cocoa pebbles. Now I really want one of those.

Don't worry. I think everyone who does this is mental.

Do you know what your pattern was before you got it? Did it change drastically after that? That is all I can think of because before you got it you must have met the magical formula that they have in place.
From what I've put together, there is no formula. People with lots of hits/people with fewer, perfect list of approvals/less than perfect. They're assigned randomly.

Yeah, I have some chronic mental health stuff that can make it difficult to impossible to focus or function sometimes, but probably the worst thing for me is if I work too much the muscles and joints in my arms will start to feel like they're on fire. There was a period about 2 years or so ago where I did so much damage to my right shoulder/elbow from the way that I had been working that I couldn't really work for months while it healed. I still get it if I'm working a lot (in both arms now, too), so I always have to take a step back for a bit when it starts coming on so it doesn't get out of control again. That was the issue that I was having last week.

let's face it, we are all a mess lmao

Ha, we are. I feel like many of us wouldn't be here if we weren't.

Sing the song, Sister. I've been an artist for more than half a century, and that's a long slog up a muddy hill. Add a dose of lupus and so...There's always been some part of me that's not working right. I'll work too much and get down. I'll work not enough and feel down. ....we need chocolate donuts. It's the little things....even little chocolate donuts.
