Are y’all back to traveling M-Th or are you able to work from home/office more frequently now after the pandemic?
The pandemic has worn me down; most so due to the lack of natural light. With the Canadian lockdowns; inability to access the office due to the protests and home office being a window less den. (Share my condo with my partner so only space). I saw 10 hours of natural light in January and there has been months where I don’t see any due to weekend work and sleeping in on the weekend. Have dealt with depression for years but this is the worst part

I have a desk job where I’ll legit sit for 9hrs each day. I used to have hobbies on the computer, like video editing, writing code for side projects, sketching out app ideas. Lately I can’t stand to be at my desk anymore after work. Been watching too much tv instead. More so seems like it’s due to being in the same location for so many hrs each day. Interested in hearing thoughts about separating work desk from personal desk, and other hobbies you picked up to get away from the screen

When's a good time to jump/transition between in house roles? I'm currently in house counsel (3 years big law, 3 in house). I was told by my manager that senior counsel would not be possible (unless current senior counsel) steps down. I'm comfortable here but also nervous about stalling my own career . How long can I stay in my associate counsel role before it looks bad on my resume? I'm looking to start a family so wouldn't mind staying for 2/3 more years.
As someone involved in first round interviews, here's some quick tips fellow fish 🐟 when being interviewed remotely:
- technical blips happen so have some initiatives ready at hand to offer to the panel prior to starting. i.e. Use the comments section, have a phone number ready to continue verbally or use a different video service (I recommend Google Meet)
- A less distracting background means we're focused solely on you and not the cat scratching the chair to pieces

One of my best friends is getting married on a super short timeline. Wedding is this summer. She asked 7 girls to be bridesmaids and there were 4 groomsmen. She “just realized” the numbers were off so she has now asked me and another girl I’m close with to be FLOWER GIRLS instead of bridesmaids. I love her but what the actual f**k. I get that it’s her day, but why ask us to be bridesmaids and do this. It’s honestly embarrassing.
I tried asking her some more questions and no response.
My boyfriend of 5 years decided not to formally propose to me even though I had told him it's important to me (it's not important to him due to his upbringing). One fine day he just casually asked how about we setting the wedding on this and that day. I was quite okay at the moment but now whenever I thought about it, I was so upset I don't have that moment most people have. I also found myself berated him about this once in a while. How do I move on from this?
