M&A junior, 6 months in at new firm. Going on second slow month. Based on staffing meetings, partners aren’t bringing in a lot of new deals right now. Not sure if M&A generally is still slow or if this may be more of a group-specific issue. Should I be worried? Main concerns are being laid off due to lack of work and skills stagnating.

My almost 4 MO EBF baby is spitting up all of a sudden after every feed.

Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!
Resume question I've had three positions over my career one of which lasted 3 months and that I got fired from, the job search took an additional 2 months. Is it worth it to leave the 3 month stint off my resume? It might be easier to explain getting fired then a 5-month gap I was thinking

When did you realize you had an alcohol problem? Did a therapist, doctor help you recognize this issue? I think I have a problem but my therapist doesn’t seem to agree. My grandfather and father have alcohol issues and my sister is on AA. I seem to have this urge especially when I am under stress….
I am completely checked out at my agency. Work has been going downhill for some time as our leadership gets bullied by clients, I am on multiple productions right now all that are boring me to tears and the only free time I have is devoted to applying to other agencies and interviews.
I am really just waiting to see if I get fired or quit first. It’s a standoff between me and the agency. Has anyone else ever felt this way and did you find motivation going to another agency?
I’ve worked at places that all have different holiday policies. EA has at minimum a nice 10 day shutdown from Christmas Eve through New Years. It’s great to know that there will be no slack messages or an exploded inbox to come back to while away. I’ve been at other studios that only give you Christmas Eve & Day and New Years Eve & Day and then the rest is up to you to request for PTO and this is obviously the suck.
Wonder what it’s like for you?

We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise.
