Anyone letting their hair grow out and donating to charity after COVID ends? I haven’t gotten a haircut since before the pandemic and don’t feel safe to get one until it is over. For people who have donated hair before any organizations you would recommend?

SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Does anyone maybbbbbe think that this new “spike” in corona virus cases could be possibly caused by these massive riots in every major city? Not saying the riots are bad or wrong, but let’s not kid ourselves and say these aren’t a contributing factor. So when people are surprised at the USAs rising rates, I mean come on...

Just took a mandatory pay cut due to COVID-19. Thinking about freelancing to cover some of that loss, but don’t want to create any conflicts with my current gig- any advice/tips?
I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
Touchy feely client asked me today, “how come you never talk about your family? Don’t you get along with them? Family is so important to me.” I’ve been feeling particularly alone and lonely during Covid, but even before... I’m 50, single, never been in a relationship, really feeling kind of down at this “midpoint” in my life. I kind of keep people at arms length especially clients I’ve never even met in person. 😔 How do you even respond?
Booked a short weekend trip in Chicago awhile back for next weekend and I’m wondering how difficult it is to find stuff to do with covid going on. Anyone have any recommendations?
Are there any ways to get practice at public speaking besides Toastmasters? Obviously things are very not normal in this area because of Covid but thinking more long-term￼. Ideally this option would be free. Thank you!
And just like that, COVID-19 has found its way back to front page news headlines with 24x7 airtime.
I have a salary range in mind for a new role based on online research and target increase from my comp now. But my research shows the data points are for salaries in HCOL areas. Do I need to adjust what I ask for if it’s a remote role and I’m not in HCOL city? Don’t want to overshoot and lose a great opportunity.
