Finally got into Chicago after a bunch of delays in SFO, and my uber driver missed exit and the trip is now 20 minutes longer due to rerouting :(
Sitting here in SFO airport and the gate agent has organized a paper airplane contest with 15 people or so. The Prize is a free drink on the plane
Channel Islands LAX -> SFO
The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
A3 in San Jose?
"Is this the regular or TSA line?" #ORD
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
#3/31 on the upgrade list for ORD-DFW, 2 upgraded. Can't win them all, I guess #firstworldproblems
Anyone else delayed at LGA? Sky club meet up!

What on earth is going on with CLT today...
Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.

My partner & I are flying back from Aruba to the US on a delta SkyMiles hidden city/ skip lagged fair before getting on our revenue flights to client sites. Can I cancel our second legs after landing?
Best spg/Marriott hotels in the Caribbean?
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
Trying to invest more in my skincare. Is the best way to begin to go to a dermatologist? (I don’t have any specific skin issues though) Follow-up: are dermatologists generally covered by insurance?

What are the reputations of FAANG companies as places to work? What are your preferences of which firms you’d want to work for/not work for?
Me in my classroom last week...
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
What’s the case for going to MBB for 2-3 years before trying to make a jump to FAANG vs going straight to FAANG post-MBA?
Any site that lets you find the best rate available to you for refinancing student loans? Showing all rates for different providers? As opposed to applying to each one individually?

Where should I move to? Top choices are: LA, San Diego, Austin, Washington DC? Currently living in Florida and looking for better tech job opportunities + not super cold / rainy (like Seattle)
If WFH became a permanent option and you didn’t have to go into the office or travel to client sites, would you stay in the city you’re currently in? If not, where would you move to?
How much is a reasonable combined salary for a couple before moving to NYC? Don't want any roommates and rent budget is 4000 max. We are currently around 180k combined. Thinking of moving to a highrise in either Hudson Yards or FIDI.
For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?
