Zoom is dumb

Advice question: I am having a home maintenance issue that’s affecting my sleep (something with our pipes or something in the ceiling that’s causing a lot of noise at night, totally sucks). In addition to being a tired monster, I have been watching myself on Zoom and my eyes are super puffy and have giant bags under them. Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏
Have you guys tried the whipped coffee from tik tok? I really wowed my MD with it at our morning zoom haha
What are some options for video conferencing with clients one-on-one now that zoom is out? See: https://techcrunch-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/techcrunch.com/2020/03/31/zoom-at-your-own-risk/amp/ I'm looking for secure free options and am considering jitsi, skype and Cisco webex.
2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
Preparing for first summer in NYC. What’s acceptable business casual wear for men when it’s hot and humid? Are polos and slack fine, or is it still shirt and jacket?

When placed on a team where work is unevenly done/you have to start picking up the slack, how do you bring that up (nicely) in the team without going to the manager?
Zoom interview for a job I don’t have any real experience for. They have my resume. Do I cut right to it that I’m not specifically qualified but eager and able to learn? Or skip over it assuming they’ve seen my background and are still interested enough to interview, fake it til you make it style?
How important is getting a Six Sigma Green/Black belt? Does it make a difference in comp/offers/projects/promotion?

I applied for the CDP as a Senior Analyst - I have 4+ years of experience in the accounting/audit field. I’m unsure about this role because I feel as if I am going backwards in my career. Anyone in the CDP program and have been out of school for 4+ years? Is it worth it?
I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?

I just barely started at my firm and got staffed on a project which requires travel. My firm only allows me to expense hotels on a personal card, everything else goes on the corporate Amex.
