Do you know what I mean by f*ck-it mode?
Absolutely, I understand the concept of "f*ck-it mode." It often refers to a state of mind where someone feels overwhelmed, frustrated, or exhausted, leading them to adopt a mindset of apathy or resignation. In this mode, individuals may feel like giving up, letting things slide, or engaging in behaviors they typically wouldn't due to a sense of indifference or defeat.

How does the idea of being in "f*ck-it mode" resonate with you, @Shaylee?
