Get COVID. I am crushing dry January so far.

Yes! Do it every year. Where are you located? Can you go out for a hike or anything? That’s one of my go tos on dry weekends

Yup. My friends I was doing it with all made it less than a week. I was sure to tell enough people so that if I failed then it would be embarrassing, and that’s kept me on the wagon. Lol. Almost half way there comrades!

Why? Drink up.

I haven’t had a drink since Sunday but gonna enjoy a few tonight. Trying to stop during the work week is hard enough as it is!

Doing dry January from Insta/snap/faceplate. Been pretty nice so far. Cut back alc to only wed, fri and Saturday. That has helped as well bc we were drinking like every single day.

Anyone else hate Mother’s Day? I feel like I have to explain why I don’t have kids and I absolutely love my family, but they always include me in Mother’s Day celebrations... they give me cards and gifts celebrating me as an “auntie” or a “cat mom” feels like a consolation prize or something.

I am contemplating allowing my hair to grow out grey, and stop my every 4 week root-dying. Reasons for stopping are — I’m just tired of having to keep up with it. I am worried this will make me look haggard and impact my “executive presence”. Any thoughts from others?

Hey all! I’m looking to make a move to DC from the Southeast and am seeing great options for 1 bedroom units in Navy Yards/SW Waterfront. I’ve enjoyed that spot a lot from my visits. But I am curious to hear experiences of living there compared to Alexandria or Arlington VA. Monthly rent budget range is $2-2.5K. I’ll also be working from home. Any advice and suggestions are appreciated!

Hi all, it's my first time posting here and I would be really happy to get some advice from you. I live in London UK, where I moved to from abroad a few years ago. I've been thinking about my career recently and I feel a bit lost, not really sure where I should be at my age, how I am doing, and where I'm going. Has anyone gone through something similar? How did you solve that? I was thinking of maybe looking for a mentor, which is something I've never tried before.
Thank you all for any advice

Additional Posts (overall)

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working.

I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
