Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
I am overwhelmed with the current state of affairs over the last six mos and six weeks. From COVID and making sure my team feels ‘ok’, to the elevation of BLM due to the long overlooked atrocities, my building my destroyed by riots and looters and then boarded up, LGBTQ focusing on the negative history instead of the pride that I so dearly love, Brands pulling out of FB (when hate is so clearly more pervasive than just on FB)...I don’t want anything swept under the rug - I am craving happiness
After a year of chaos from Covid and furlough I don’t know what the hell I’m doing with my career anymore
How are y’all planning upcoming travel? For example, booking non refundable hotels only to see some governments banning travel? Any tricks to not lose the $$ ?
Anyone else feel stuck? I know some of it is Covid but I feel like I take one step forward and two steps back. I just can't get anything to move forward. I had a rough break up, stuck in my job, can't leave the country, no hope that anything will change in the near future.
If I get upgraded to a Delta One seat on a domestic flight, do I still get access to the Delta Sky Club? Or is that only for paid Delta One tickets?
Phuket best Marriott/spg hotels?
INSEAD candidate here, thinking about the exchange program with Wharton. Anyone here currently on campus? I'd love to know how much classes and activities are still being impacted by Covid.
Thinking of making the switch out of consulting. Travel is just too much for my wife. What roles/professions would you target back in industry with MC experience?
If someone in your family passes away and you need to take the day off to travel to the funeral, do you just take a PTO day or is there a specific WBS?
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.

Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?
Does anyone have any leads on potential jobs in IT, like IT Support or Help Desk in DC? My SO was laid off today due to COVID.
A big fear of mine lately has me feeling like a terrible human being. My brother in law had a small covid wedding last year, I was so excited to go but had to cancel last minute because I started miscarrying a few days before the wedding, at 5 weeks. I ended up watching the livestream, and miscarried during the wedding, alone at home (I urged my husband to go to the wedding and that I’d be fine, my parents were checking in on me). I haven’t been able to get preg since. (Contd in comments)

Is there anyone here from McKinsey or BCG in Montreal willing to chat? Im thinking about applying soon, but I feel like speaking with someone who works there will help me assess if I would love working there (culture, types of projects, etc), and that my interest isnt solely based on prestige/reputation!
Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….
Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?
