Who's in downtown Chicago tonight? Staying at the Westin on Michigan ave for the next couple nights
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Does IHG do a status match with either bonvoy, Hyatt or Hilton? Any contact or link I can request on

Did anyone's brains just stop working while pregnant? I'm 13 weeks and can only manage to work half days. I'll sit at my computer for 12 hours and bill only 3-4 hours instead of my standard 8-10. I have work to do, but zero motivation or availability to focus unless there's a looming deadline. Does this phase pass? Did this happen to anyone else?

So I’ve got a situation: I’m a first year in transactions. Office is located in a different city than where I live. When I went to the office and didn’t work remote, I stayed at my girlfriends. Well… she broke up a week ago. I don’t have a place in the city where the office is located and I’m currently working remote. I don’t feel like moving, actually. I never did in the first place. Only reason was for my relationship (yeah it was a bad idea I guess) (1/2)

Anyone else have a personal and/or work space that’s just absolute chaos? I haven’t managed to keep my bedroom/office clean for more than 1 day since COVID (granted it was also messy in the before times). Every surface is covered in laundry / dishes / papers / tech / cosmetics. God forbid my webcam ever shifted from it’s usual position and revealed my quarters to my coworkers (or clients!) Pls tell me I’m not alone in being a fairly well-adjusted adult with the bedroom of a teenager :|
