Just sent i485 for GC last week, any idea how long are the processing times with covid? I've been exahusted for some time now, and days are getting longer and harder but this has given me so hope.
Weird how the people who claim to believe in making government smaller have no problem with unfettered Federal interference in issues that fall under State jurisdiction (threatening States over their COVID and protest response) or a political party trying to force their interests into private businesses by threatening to repeal protections https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/live/2020/10/28/technology/tech-hearing.amp.html
I'm thinking I should add some specific covid safety procedures to my syllabus. Has anyone done this and is willing to share?
During the school year last year many things were different because of Covid. One thing that was unique was that we could wear anything we wanted, of course as long as it was appropriate. Was this the case at your school, and do you think it will be difficult getting teachers to “dress up” again? Curious?

I'm avoiding gyms due to covid, so I'm only working with my weights and bench, but I'm having issues with butt workouts. I'm a healthy, active 32 yo woman, and I do squats and hip thrusts with booty band with around 30 lb kettlebell. Anything heavier and I'm hurting my back. I keep double checking my form and everything seems right. Any tips?

How do you manage to get covid test done in the 24 hours window? PCR takes time and none of the labs I reached out to does rapid testing.
If the government really wanted to end Covid they should’ve given contracts to popular US clothing brands like: Nike, Under Armor, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfinger, Calvin Klein, The North Face, etc. Point being, if these brands designed their own masks in bulk people would be more inclined to wear “their favorite brand” opposed to a surgical mask or no mask at all.

Anyone ever gotten COVID before an exam? I just got it and I test Saturday. I called about it and they said to cancel it and I might get either a refund or extension. If anyone has had this happen did you get an extension? If so, how long was it?
Another early Covid hero losing the battle.
How do you make a new friends in 2022? Took a job in a small, quiet city. Blue New England area that's very COVID cautious. Most bars close before 11p. I like the firm, I like the work, but I cannot see myself staying long term in an area where I don't have friends and everyone seems scared of interacting with people they don't know. I'm not even talking about dating (though that'd be nice), I'm just talking about not spending all my off time drinking alone in my apartment.

I know this has been talked about before.. but what was being an associate like in the before times on nights / weekends? Did everyone have home offices anyways and get work all hours of the day still or have to go back into the office at odd hours?Like you would just be out on a Saturday and then have to rush to the office if you got work..or does this happen more with WFH because everyone assumes you’re home (still basically shut down in Canada) and have all the tools you need to do the work?

Soo I know this has been asked a million times, but since everything changes week to week, what are others in high COVID caseload areas doing for preschool/daycare? I’m more asking out of concern for my kid’s socialization—we are lucky to be able to afford a nanny. I feel so incredibly lost.
WHY are we so nasty and vindictive to each other? Got an entire 30 day block from Blacks In Tech for pointing out that a conversation about the COVID-19 vax did not begin from a respectful place. IMO starting a respectful convo on that topic means inviting people to share their “reasons”. This person started the discussion from the angle that Black people have “misconceptions” - which plays into the narrative that we are too dumb to evaluate the info and land on a decision which is right for us.

Have any of you diagnosed with adult ADHD considered speech therapy to help with verbal fluency? And did it help? I tend to ramble and I'm not coherent in meetings. I usually have prepared remarks but sometimes when a conversation goes in a direction outside my comfort zone I fumble. Today a client followed my ramble with "I think what he is trying to say is.." I literally wanted to kill myself!
