Moved to the city about 6 months ago and I’ve been disappointed in my experience. I know the pandemic is playing a factor but I didn’t expect the winter days as gloomy as they’ve been. For those who have lived here for a while, is this normally what the winters are like? What do you do to keep things interesting when you can’t go outside? Last two months have made me consider moving but part of me feels like I won’t have given the city a fair shot

I usually don't post serious stuff here on LinkedIn, but wanted to share a struggle I've faced, and hidden, for a long time. A stigma that might cause me to lose my job, or at least my colleagues' respect, now that I'm admitting it here in public. But I courageously share in the hopes that it might help even one person find the strength to face and admit it themselves, and maybe de-stigmatize it moving forward.

I secretly like Coldplay.

Award season bums me out. Lots of bs case studies when the actual work was terrible or mediocre, yet our careers depend on these awards mostly. It's like the actual work doesn't matter.

I’ve never understood why it’s ok to bring dogs into an office setting. Sure, it might make things easier for you from a caretaking perspective. Or, calm you. But, some people don’t like dogs, and others can be allergic. So, your co-workers have to be uncomfortable for a perk that isn’t required to work? Or, they are forced to cross the growing list of agencies who do allow them off a shrinking list of possible places to work? It doesn’t seem right and has always felt a little selfish to me.

Was walking in nyc herald square with my pregnant wife and her mom. A very sketchy guy gets in my face at a street corner and kicks me in the shin. Hard.

Keeps walking and then turns back and looks at me and winks. I made the decision to not do anything so as to not escalate the situation (wife asked me to just forget it) plus we were running late to family brunch.

But it’s emasculating. Anything else i could have done? Didn’t feel critical enough for 911 plus who knows when/how long thatd be
