I recognize that I’ve performed very well and garnered the recognition of many teammates while being able to maintain a fairly regular 8:30/9—4:30/5 schedule, but rather than be grateful for such an opportunity I can’t help but feel as though (1) I’ve been extremely lucky; and (2) I definitely should not feel like I’ll be able to continue experiencing such a (relatively speaking) lax setup.

I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
Thought the travel grind would resume this month for me and just learned that I have atleast 3 more months without it. This makes me happy and also sad.
Hi all, I’ve bought a ticket to see a DJ this Friday and I’m vaccinated. However, I’m planning to take a PCR test and flight in two weeks for vacations. Is it risky for me to go to this concert? I know there’s less risk in being positive but still! What are your thoughts ? Thanks !

Biden Administration Tipping Point? I’m starting to think the wheels are coming loose on the Biden administration train. The Delta variant is still eating up the news cycle and the idiotic back and forth on masks and Fauci’s nefarious plot/imminent sainthood are keeping most of the debate away from the simmering underlying issues. My guess is that a year from now we’ll be looking at mid terms no longer defined by a pandemic response but by inflation, deficit, crime and immigration.
It's a good Monday to be local. Hope all the FB Delta travelers are settled comfortably at an airport or still at home. Good luck.

The ultimate goal is to save enough for the kids college, retire early, and travel. Do you choose a higher salary career that involves a lot of travel which takes you away from your family but gets you to your end goal sooner? Or do you take a lower salary career with minimal travel and flexibility to spend time with your family?

Hey everyone. I'm sorry to do a shameless plug like this, but I posted this arrangement on Facebook--tagging various people who had inspired and helped--and no one noticed or cared, which made me really sad. So if you're interested in an elementary-level, three-part song based on "Come, Sing a Song With Me" but partly in Lenape, Swahili, and Spanish, here it is. https://youtu.be/zP0wdeO8MY0
