Chicago > all over Hawaii, December-March. ~$400 RT

Maui was beautiful. If you have the points, stay at the Westin in Ka'anapali. Water on one side mountain on the other - it's truly heaven on earth.

I'm from Hawaii, the Big Island is where it's at. Specifically Kona. You have the snow capped mountains with limited street lights to see the gorgeous evening sky. There are white sand, black sand and green sand beaches. Volcanic activity, amazing hikes and ono food.

You might want to check on COVID related restrictions. My friend lives in Hawaii and her life has been unbelievably isolated because of super strict shutdowns.

My fiancé is from the big island and she loves it there (probably biased lol). I’m going to spend some time over there with her family probably in the next few months

Maui, Kauai sucks...you’ll be bored within’ a week. Maui is the perfect balance between resorts, restaurants and urban living

Kauai!!!!

Big island

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.

Do you think your peers bill their time accurately? I’ve been using the timer on my time management website and trying to keep myself honest for my Instagram breaks, but my mentor (I’m a first year) said he just estimates time based on how many hours he worked that day. Our NYC V-5 firm always does block billing so it’s incredibly easy to say “8 hours on matter X”. Anyway, especially with work from home increasing distractions, do you keep yourself honest with billing?
