Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Realized I’ve been skipping breakfast and lunch bc of the overload of work / stress / anxiety even though we’re all wfh. I never had this problem before when wfh but ever since quarantine started..I’ve been feeling antsy to be 100% productive..and when I’m not at 100% (like rn as I’m writing this post) my anxiety levels are wack. Any advice on how to manage?
what if we find out this wfh thing is better than traveling and going to the office? THEN WHAT DO WE DO?
Base office in NYC, but been living in Texas for the past couple of months and might stay here for the next few months (since wfh is the default in my firm now) - can I get away from paying NY income taxes?

Anyone gotten rhinoplasty? I was getting consults before the pandemic and chickened out bc I’m terrified of dying in surgery for a cosmetic procedure. But I’m considering it again bc I hate how I look in photos and bc we’re all wfh and I’ve never met my colleagues in person so no one would know. Anyone had this done? Was it worth it? Any issues?
