Does your company have a holiday party? Do you go to it? Is it considered rude if you don't go?

My company is having one this year since some people are back in office. I'm gonna go because of the same fear, I'm worried it will look bad if I don't.

Some people go, some don't go. I tend to arrive early so I can leave early.

I thought I needed a vacation bad. Then I went on one and I still can’t get my brain to get work done. My long to do list is just getting longer and more overdue but can’t bring myself to make significant progress.

I've been going through a rough time personally and have severe depression. But given we're still early in the year, and I think also the keener in me, I'm somehow hesitant to take time off to give myself a mental health break because what would 1-2 days off really do?

Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?

Feeling really lonely this holiday season and I think it's time for a change. I love my job but I'm realizing I devote too much time to it. I would really like to expand my social circle and potentially meet someone, but I don't really know where to start. Ideally my partner would also work in healthcare, but it isn't a dealbreaker for me. Ladies what should I do?? I'm a 32 year old woman with no kids.

I was told by management they see me in a more supervisory role at my first year review and during meetings.

I know I deserved more of an increase this year. I mentioned to my manager about the promotion and was told she will bring it up in a meeting. Three months later and I haven’t heard anything. Any advice?
