How do I deal with two senior/very important partners who have completely different ideas for strategy regarding a case? They keep telling me to do various tasks with different instructions, there’s no one “point” person for the client, and I feel like we look all over the place with our approach to different docs depending on who reviews and not like we have a united front. But maybe I’m not paid enough to be caring about this?

Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so ￼easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.
We have a 3 yr old and a 4 month old and the 3YO constantly screams during the little one’s naps (sometimes it’s definitely on purpose) and wakes her up.

Hot take: Griffith park kinda sucks. Like it's fine if you want to hike, but like golden gate and the presidio in SF are just far better, cause there's space to just like throw a frisbee and be a person, especially if you're mobility challenged.

Need some advice — looking to do VI peel precision plus sessions to clear my adult acne scarring as it’s really been affecting my self-confidence lately. Found a Medspa with great reviews that charges $350/session. My dermatologist will charge me $650/session. Is it better to just go to a derma despite the big price difference? Has anyone ever gone to a Medspa for this treatment? Open to other treatment suggestions that worked for you. TIA

My spouse and I were planning on trying for our first (IUD officially removed!!) and a few months later I decided I also needed to change jobs. Ideally I wish I’d realized sooner - but now with two potential big changes on the horizon - should I stick it out in this job just to make it doable if I get pregnant? Or gamble on both huge life changes at once?
I know we all have fetishes and fantasies and I’m very sex positive. We all find celebrities attractive that aren’t our partners I get it. However, my partner is too open with me about them women he finds attractive and I would like him to keep it to himself. I communicated this with him a few times because it made me a little insecure. I’m not unattractive but social media has set unrealistic body standards that I don’t agree with. I have no doubt he loves me but now I feel like he’s projecting
