My school is implementing a new dress code...for teachers. Ugh we’re being treated like children (ironic, yes)
Just heard of a firm that's reopening - for those who want to go back to the office - and the procedures are insane. Each attorney's office is sealed when they leave, valet needs to clean steering wheels when giving cars back to people, masks are enforced, eating is prohibited unless alone, there's a specific place to get Uber Eats orders, etc. This is simply impossible to maintain in the long term and must cost a fortune. I don't think we'll be going back to the office before 2021.

There is a positive case in my school and we haven’t even been made aware. I know because it was slipped out to my para. I am beyond frustrated because this is just going to continue. Needed to vent and hear from others
Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!

For those who moved during the pandemic, and potentially moved away from a big city with lots of job opportunities, where did you move from and to?
I moved during the pandemic from Boston to Central New York. Super thankful that WFH and remote work in general has allowed me move sooner than planned and keep my job/seek new jobs that are remote. Being able to make a big life change and not have to consider adjusting my career outlook and/or salary expectations has been really wonderful.
New home office view this week
Mechanical keyboards over zoom- yay or nay? I tested it and Zoom will filter out the background noise if I’m not talking. If I am speaking while typing, others can hear clacking
How much is too much reaching out? Some context: I’m on the bench and I spoke to my SM about my availability on a Monday. They say they will find me some work. But I don’t hear from him at all. When do I reach out and how often should I follow up until he actually gives me what I need. The layoffs here at Accenture has me stressing over WBS codes so much.
State Tax has 9/15 and 10/15 deadlines with relatively very less work after until January. Good chance of getting laid off in those free months?

I left my job over a month ago, and I have a couple of new job opportunities I need to make a decision on but I’m scared of going back to work. The stress and burnout hit me hard in my last 2 jobs. Do I push through or take my time to go back to work?
I’ve reached peak burnout today. I feel I can’t concentrate and even if I have deadlines, I can’t find motivation to get the work done. Any tips for the short term? I plan to take some time off coming up soon, but need to get past these deadlines
Got a baby shower group gift email (addressed to 20+ people) for a coworker who I hardly know. I want to contribute something - would $10 sound insulting? Just wondering if better not to contribute at all than to insult. Or is there a suggested dollar amount for those occasions?
Just got the confirmation that I’m now a remote worker - so I can finally move out of the northeast and explore another part of the country. I’m single M - 29 years old like to be active(run, bike, tennis), be close to body of water, love the sun and tropical climate. Am looking at Florida (st. Pete and Fort Lauderdale), Colorado, and California (San Diego) anyone around my age have thoughts about places I’ve mentioned and or others I should look at?
Has anyone returned to a previous employer? If so, what was the time gap and are you glad you did?
