I’m about to be offered a freelance contract that sounds like it could be fairly long term. It would start as a couple months to start and then revisit contract. I’m due with my second in May. I don’t feel the need to share that now since it’s remote and I’m only 15 weeks, but I also worry about them investing time in me and wanting me to sign a longer term contract only for me to be like I can’t work past May 1. Thoughts?
Has anyone dealt with chronic migraines? I’m pretty young and got used to them growing up. However,about twice a month they come on so strong I either have to WFH or come in late. They last several days and it’s so frustrating. I’m scared my boss/coworkers will start to think it’s literally “all in my head”.
Any social, brand or media strategists mind sharing their freelance rates? For context, this would be a short term project for a former coworker/friend approximately 10 hrs per week and remote.

Anyone else struggling hard with the comfort difference between WFH clothes and office clothes? I'm finding it's severely impacting my mood on office days. Work clothes are just 1000x more uncomfortable than sweatpants at home. Also, no shoes! I cant find work shoes that don't hurt my feet that i can wear with regular office clothes or a suit.
Boss just emailed expecting team to work over weekend. Already spent 60h this week staring at screens WFH. Should I just ignore?
Help! My wife’s company in Boston is not allowing their staff to work from home and in-fact mandating that people come onsite and work from office. Given the spread in the area I am concerned.
A few extravert friends texted me over the weekend, panicking about WFH mandates and being socially isolated. I do not share their pain! Nice of them to care, though ❤️

Considering a remote position at an agency out-of-state. Any tips or watch-outs about working remotely that I should know about?
It’s been over a year with covid impacting everyone/many people regarding WFH. When WFH was first implemented I thought it was great thinking I could spend more time at home by working out during lunch or cooking meals at home because I wouldn’t have to spend an hour or so on the road. Fast forward to today I feel worse because I realized I never used my time to do those things everyday. I feel more depressed or lazy. Anyone else on the same boat? Have you gone past this or still feeling thisway
Does one need to amend H1B visa if wfh? My husband worked from home last year but is not claiming the tax benefits with the rationale that home is not place of work as per his visa. I moved to wfh due to covid but my employer hasn’t mentioned amendment only that I keep copy of LCA at home.
