Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

With everything going on in the world (COVID / BLM / Yemen / Human Rights Issues) I've started feeling really guilty lately. I came to the UK when I was a child for a better life and I've been incredibly lucky to have the life I have (mortgage free / stable job etc.) at such a young age but I have this pit in my stomach where I always feel guilty that doesn't seem to go away. I give to charity, volunteer and try to be a good person. Does anyone else feel the same, how do you deal with it?
Question regarding traditional vs Roth 401k decision. I joined a new firm and they allow for Roth 401k and Mega back door Roth contribution.

How do I get in contact with a headhunter? Or at least get on their radar. I’m at a boutique firm in Upstate New York with 2.5 years experience including litigation, medical depositions, appellate briefs and a pending brief before the Court of Appeals.

I’m really good at pretending to be interested in what people are saying when they talk to me. I’ll kind of zone out but can remember/single out the main talking points so that I can bring it up later with them and they’ll be stoked. Does anyone else feel the same way?
