Why is your wrist touching your keyboard?

funny

…buy an external keyboard

i invariably end up taking it off at my desk

Blue tape over the portion of either your watch or your laptop/desk that is making contact will help with the scuffing issue

I use one of those squishy pads under my wrists when I type. Also keeps the watch from scratching.

Either make sure your bracelet is not coming into contact with solid objects, or don’t worry about it.

Hi 🐠! Class of 2017 here and found out yesterday that I’m being held back a year (as a 3rd year instead of 4th). I feel totally blindsided / actually cried on the Zoom. I’ve reached out to partner-mentor in other groups and they explained that this isn’t a demotion but an opportunity to have more time to acquire mid-level skills before being thrust into that role & failing. I GET that but I feel this is something that should have been messaged BEFORE the review. Such an erosion of trust. Advice?
