Hey Mates I'm working in pretty good fintech firm. I'm in my 30s with 2 kids and they are calling everyone to office by January I want remote job and would never want to live in any city again. Wondering which route to opt? 1. Start investing in open source and build a profile, find freelance jobs on upwork/Fiverr Or 2. Start giving interviews in remote jobs. FYI I'm terrible at interviews and spoken communications. Please provide your inputs. I want to work remote with good pay.
Happy Friday fellow comsultanites! Friday is like putting your first foot into the proverbial weekend hot tub. List something you’re pumped to do with your precious time outside of client pain
I have a date tomorrow after an important meeting with my client. I won't have time to change before. What should I wear that will take me from day to night? I'm female BTW
Very thankful to have a week each month remote on my project. Let's be real, we don't need to be on the client site every week.

Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Started with a new project and a colleague uses the word ‘cock blocker’ a lot but only within the internal team. Is this word professionally acceptable? If not how do I tell him?
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”

Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)

What agencies have gone complete WFH?
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
First day on the project and the partner takes out an hour to teach me how to configure (1:1). Uncle D rocks!!!
Just transferred to the NYC office and realized it’s a whole new beast (people/culture/projects). Any advice is welcome!
