General question: is there any certain “rule of thumb” post that you sell to take profiles? I’ve seen some experts (“”) say to always collect at 20% and others say until you see a reason to sell. Asking as rearranged last week and luckily got into the airlines before they exploded and now I’m sitting about 50% up on delta. And after selling Zoom way to early (used to buy my delta), I’m not sure whether to take the cash or let it ride more. This fast a rally makes me think it will plummet soon
Do you think differently about the way you look, or are you more aware how your face actually looks, since you’re seeing yourself on zoom so much? And are you like me, so self-conscious that you only look at yourself the whole zoom call?
How are High Schools doing College Visits this year? Google meet, zoom, something else? Do students Pre register? During the school day or on the students time?

The purpose for this will be that it'll get us to open our laptops and hopefully sit and study later. Also, it might be good to know what others are working on, give progress updates, and solve and discuss problems together.
This might also keep us motivated and incentivise us to keep working hard!

“Reflecting on and adopting the use of micro-affirmations would be a positive strategy to prevent microaggressions. Micro-affirmations are small acts that foster inclusion, listening, comfort and support for people who may feel isolated or invisible in their environment. Focus on action, not avoidance – create new good behaviours.”
