We have been quarantining pretty well except for essential grocery runs. My in laws want to meet us. They are also doing grocery runs. Is it alright ? I am 36 week pregnant and my mil is diabetic.
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.
I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.

Thought this was a great interview with James Carville - as someone who feels pretty center left, this mostly makes sense to me: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/22338417/james-carville-democratic-party-biden-100-days Fellow fish, where do you think the missing links are for the dems to win on these issues? I actually think Biden’s messaging strategy has been largely impeccable

This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.

I have sponsorship from my consulting firm (tuition, requires 3 year commitment, definitely does not pay like MBB/T2). I got a 60k scholarship from Kellogg, should I just consider making a move to MBB/T2?
My day consisted of listening to my senior and manager whine about not being as far as they had planned in life and running into a former coworker who left to work at a client and is loving life 🤷♂️
Do MBB people complain about their pay too or are people generally satisfied with their compensation there?
@McK fish - Does anyone know who actually evaluates the resumes and makes decisions on interview offers? Not for campus - for experienced hires. Generalist roles.
