Sunday scaries everyday? Ouch that sounds terrible. Have you tried yoga, meditation, reading (for pleasure), hiking, or another hobby to distract s d decompress?

Best of luck to you!

Sounds about right, fellow BCGer... 🙃

Get outside and get some sunlight or go for runs. Try various things like meditation and CBD maybe

Yup. From time to time. It’s a sign that something needs to change

It’s called Smonday - the moment when Sunday feels like Monday

Please call me.

Try to see if you can take some time off to reset your mind. Sometimes a few days off can really help. I hope things get better.

No, because consulting is a circle jerk that I haven’t taken seriously for 4 years now.

Life after Google? After 8 years I don’t know who I am anymore and what I want to do in my career. I don’t have technical skills or deep knowledge in a specific area. For the first time in my career I’m doing so poorly and not delivering on anything, will potentially get an NI by EoY. I’m not sure where I want to go or what to do. No confidence in interviews when speaking of my qualifications and experience. I don’t feel like a person anymore. I want to quit and hit the reset button so bad.

My org structure recently changed and my new Director (male in his late 50’s/early 60’s) and I began working together on Monday. We have been meeting extensively this week and twice in meetings with just him and I he called me “kiddo”. Im a VP with 11 years experience in my field (of which he knows very little). I find this incredibly patronizing and disrespectful, but I’m not sure that he means it in that sense as his kids are my age. Should I say something, and if so, how do I bring it up?

Going into last night I had a 10 point lead with DeAndre Hopkins to play and a flex (David Montgomery or Allen Robinson) and my boss had Taylor Lockett. Thought I had this on lock and then Lockett decides to go off for 50+ points.

Now I'm down 20 points with an open flex spot for Montgomery or Robinson. Leaning towards Robinson since Montgomery hasn't had a good game since Week 2. Thoughts?

My brother is going through some really intense chemo so him and his wife are often recovering at their house for a week without going out.

Since they can’t take any visitors I would love to send them some sort of at home activity kit (wine tasting or anything!) to keep them busy during these lockdown weeks.

Please share any suggestions you have below! No limits in terms of activity or budget. I have about 8-9 weeks that I plans to cover.

Thank you!

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.
