Long post alert. Also, confusing post alert haha. So, I'm going to be divorced in the next few months and have 2 kids who'll be with me. Ever since this situation has been finalized, I'm becoming very conscious of our spend & have been tight about it. Covid has helped. But I noticed that even my grocery store bills are pretty high...like a single run to Meijer is $125+. Costco is like $200 or so. We've always had fresh fruits, nuts liberally used in our house. [Cont'd]
Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful. Can I enter the US when I have H1B change of employer petition approved but employed with my current company and serving notice period? Which company’s I-797 form do I show immigration? Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
People who had covid: Are you out dating as normal and not telling people you had covid? People who haven’t had covid: Are you willing to date people who had covid ?
Folks that have recovered from covid which symptoms took the longest to wear off? I just had cough and mild fever.. I’m into week 4 but cough just doesn’t seem to go away, any advice/tips?
I have a question/topic that has been on my mind since this whole COVID thing started. With all the anti-Asian sentiment going on, companies (at least mine) are now all of a sudden reacting TBC..
Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
This headline is not from February, but today. “I think we’re gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point that’s going to, sort of, just disappear — I hope,”. -Donald Trump
Not to start a political debate… I am not anti vaccine but have not wanted to get the COVID vaccine. I think I will be getting the vaccine tomorrow. Anyone else feel conflicted who originally really did not want to get it, but was kind of feeling forced to get it?
I need to travel to India urgently for personal reasons. I have a US citizenship and valid OCI and wondering if any issues due to COVID. Thinking of taking the flight from Newark to Mumbai to avoid exposure - does anyone know what it means once I land there (final destination Bombay). And can I come back in 2 weeks or will I have to stay longer due to quarantine?
Folks, this is David Bossie, the man overseeing the Trump legal challenges. But get this, not only does he NOT have a law degree....he doesn’t even have an UNDERGRAD degree....😑😑 What he does have, though, is the coronavirus.....
Seeing Mckinsey winning alot of COVID related work, makes me wonder which pandemic has Mckinsey had the biggest net impact on, Covid or Opiod crisis?
I’m thinking of doing an all-inclusive vacay late November or early December. Probably Punta Cana or Jamaica. Has anyone been to these resorts lately? How is everything given COVID?
Has anyone broken up with someone over a difference in COVID boundaries? If so, how did you know it was a deal breaker? I’m considering ending my relationship because my partner is too strict (i.e. doesn’t really leave the house for much).
“Covid nerds”: Posts selfies of themselves in masks. Cheerfully inserts “social distancing” into every other sentence. Fawns over Cuomo’s covid briefings. Loves elbow bumps more than high-fives. I’m all for being safe, but I’m not going to pretend it’s trendy or fun
Moms, I have a 2 year old and a 3 month old. Everyone on my family is vaccinated. What are safe activities to do with these kiddos in the midst of all this covid variant environment. I thought about the pumpkin patch, hiking, the park, and walks as long as we distance from others. I just get nervous about catching colds or a breakthrough covid infection. I’m not paranoid, just risk averse. The whole family got the TSV bug a month ago, and it was miserable. Just trying to be practical, but not a
Today marks 6 months since my dad died from Covid. Thinking about all of you who lost loved ones during this difficult time
Anyone wonders what happens if you are working in US as non resident alien and got COVID19? Nobody is going to care? 😕
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
I am a 7th year in a new role. My on boarding has been spotty due to workload/covid and I’ve made peace with the fact that I’m going to have to learn my new role independently and sink or swim. In the meantime, how do I know if my performance is acceptable when my supervising partner has no time for me, is always annoyed at everyone, and is a generally snippy? I know I shouldn’t rely so much on supervisor feedback, but I had a horrible blindsiding experience early in my career...
Curious to know where folks are from and which state do you live in right now? (Ignore relocation because of Covid). I'll start, NJ > NJ

I’ve been trying to get some graphic design side projects to potentially pivot to self-employed designer. I think I have a competitive portfolio, but I’m having a hard time finding gigs. I tried Fiverr, but it is hard to compete with the prices they charge there. I know many people in the field, as I hang out mostly with designers and creatives, but not many people that could be a client. Any advice?
Having constant fights with my SO about travel. Planning to having a conversation with my manager to reduce travel. Any suggestions on how to approach this with the manager?
What do companies like amazon Apple etc pay people in their accounting departments. Just wondering what jobs y’all are always saying pay more in industry because I never see high salaries for accountants. Or is it more senior positions like controller or like financial analysts etc that y’all exit into from PA?

Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
When the client pressures you into naming a date the audit can get done, and later that week you discover multiple serious issues that will require extended testing 😬
