When are we going to acknowledge that this is no longer a pandemic of the unvaccinated? Vaccinated/boosted people are commonly getting and spreading covid and transmitting variants. You should get vaxxed. It will protect you from severe illness and death. But it’s not preventing transmission, spread, or variants. So let’s stop treating unvaccinated people like pariahs.
Any tips on things to purchase (both safety, cooking, mental wellbeing) for preparing to live alone? Pre-covid I loved the idea of living alone but as my 8/1 move in date approaches getting a little overwhelmed and want to avoid feeling lonely with most of my family and loved ones living across the country and spending all day on work video calls, don’t want to rely on personal Zooms
Sibling has no self-control. Covid has brought out the worst in him. He constantly stays inside his bedroom, sometimes for days at an end. Works from his bedroom, plays video games in free time, orders food & eats in his bedroom. Is not motivated to do anything or interact with anyone. These tendencies existed before pandemic but has gotten significantly worse during. Any suggestions on how to help him
Taking BEC on Monday, my last section, and if I don’t pass, I can’t retake prior to my 1st exam expiring. (Thanks Coronavirus). Any advice on the written portion?

Reached a COVID milestone today, first time meeting with teams from my bathtub. Still here if anyone has any questions. 🙏🏿
Started a new job. Today. In the midst of the coronavirus. Was working at a startup with no sizable income and is on halt now. I feel extremely lucky. Good luck to all, not all hope is lost!
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
Hi all! Anyone here a single dog mom/dad? I’m adopting during covid but concerned about dog parenting when work life is “normal” again. Any advice or outlook?

Anyone seriously considering a permanent remote work situation and move out of Chicago after Covid? How do you go about it with your Manager/company? Do you keep your Chicago salary or is a move put things in question?
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
I might get roasted for asking such a basic question but - how much do you budget for eating out ($ amount or % of budget)? Pre pandemic I was traveling 5 days a week and just used left over per diem on the one night I went out with friends at home. During covid I stayed home. Now that I’m fully vaccinated and are many of my friends they want to go out to eat/drink. During covid I moved from a LCOL to HCOL city so I’m experiencing delayed sticker shock at the prices. Any tips?
COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
Have your employers made you return your covid monitors/desks if you’ve gotten a new job? How have they collected?

Talk to me about your resume. How many pages is it? Do you provide and overview page and then go into more role detail? I’ve received conflicting advice.
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?

Hello. I have an interview for a company that doesn’t offer maternity leave for employees under a year. I happen to be 5 months pregnant. My job now gives 18 weeks total but this new job is more pay, something I’d be much more passionate about and I’d actually get RSUs for the first time. Have you guys negotiated maternity leave? Have you been pregnant looking for work? When do you tell your employer?
