Anything over 3weeks expire and don’t roll over to next year. save those use rest. Plus you never know what kinda project you’re gonna get into, might as well take pto and recharge, saving them might not be worth it.

Covid is going to be around for a while - work/ travel as we know it is going to look different for at least the next year or so. Take the time to take care of yourself now.

Take the day or two. They’ll replenish fast enough. It’s just not worth the burnout.

Dude. Take a day off.

Take vacation now. I just did and didn’t realize how badly I needed it

My SO is always adjusting our lives to accommodate his family - from our holiday plans, to where we may settle down, etc. however whenever he needs help he reaches out to my family. It really really bothers me but whenever I say it he says I’m so transactional in mindset about my family helping. Not the case imo but yes it bothers me that he has my sister help him with things but plans life to convenience his brother

I have just over 2 years experience in consulting, I am focussed on FS clients but still a generalist for the most part and I’m not truly enjoying consulting.

However, I’m wondering what other types of roles could work for me? (I realise there are so many options but I just have no idea and so don’t know what to look for!) Would appreciate any and all ideas!
