Had a very early call with the client and foreign lawyers this morning. One of the other country lawyers couldn’t use my telecon number, so I had to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting. In pajamas, no makeup. Firm’s Zoom has no option for the organizer to start the meeting with their camera off for some reason. Client and other lawyers are all female, and they all turned their cameras on in solidarity. I love the supportive women I have the pleasure to work with. Any other Zoom WFH war stories?

So instead of requiring Zoom. (Re the joke thread) I've imagined that if I *could* I'd sit on Discord all day with Open Mic, and ask my team top pop in to ask questions. Would that be reasonable?

I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
