Haha yeah, I'm lucky because the head of our office is a health nut. He demands that there be Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, nuts, and water bottles available in the kitchen at all times! Amazing.

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

I finally found a job after being jobless for 2 months! It’s a 6 to 12 month contract and I can start immediately. I know I should be super happy but a part of me is not super excited about this. It’s a level under what I’m used to and from my chat with them it’s not a very strategic/creative role, more doing transcreational stuff. I’m however used to being super involved in all the strat and concepting etc and I’m kinda scared I’ll lose touch with everything I’ve learned so far, esp the strat!
