Black women made the career switch from corporate America to entrepreneurship during Covid-19. While it appears entrepreneurship was deemed a necessity, Black women were the largest group of new business owners closely followed by Latina women. These businesses have high growth potential but why is access to finding still a barrier?

Did anyone here apply for Canadian citizenship last year? Curious to hear how the progress on your application has been, specifically the time duration, i.e., when did you receive the AOR letter and how long after that did you receive the invite for the test and then oath ceremony? Any applicants still waiting? I understand that processing times are longer than usual due to Covid and might vary on a case to case basis, but just want to get a sense of the average processing time.
I work in tax and with TCJA and CARES (extra work) and not enough resources (not hiring, people were still quitting, and layoffs). Also with blurred lines of work/home since covid, I’m at my computer from wake up to bed time, usually midnight. I have always had stress, but that has recently escalated to full blown anxiety. Do you guys think things will level out or will the firms try to keep taking advantage of everyone’s increased utilization?
Has anyone here been hired at an agency during COVID? Is the expectation that you'll eventually go into the office or that remote work may be permanent?

I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing.
I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does.
Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...

Need some advice. I’m in a long term, committed monogamous relationship, but I’ve been concerned about my own fidelity.
