Do you feel guilty for traveling given the climate change implications? As an old millennial, it never crossed my mind but after spending the pandemic doom reading about climate change now I'm re-thinking all of my post COVID travels/trips.

I do, air travel is a pretty significant emitter of carbon. What I do is try to purchase carbon offsets from reputable NGOs at year end (as part of an annual charitable donation) that go to projects like reforestation, restoration of mangroves, wetlands, etc.

Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.

A get that people want things to be back to normal and offices are starting to open back up, but delta clearly seems to be picking up and we will likely have to roll back very soon. Feels like we are back in early March 2020 when Covid hit the US and we took much longer than necessary to respond

ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
