Those claiming A human life is more important than cars and shops - Why would you all gather up without wearing masks or social distancing? 100k+ ppl already died in the US due to COVID-19.
I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!
My husband bought some of these blue light filtering glasses for the hours I spend charting (under normal circumstances). Still wish I didn't need them but really nice of him. With all this COVID craziness I actually miss these boring tasks...
Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now. A lot of my friends from here are either married, moved out of the area, avoiding going out cuz of COVID, or hermits. 44/M
To hell with coronavirus and lay-off threats. I’m having myself a nice ribeye steak dinner with some healthy veggies.
My ex wife was ranting about the latest season of American Horror Story and I jokingly said something and she responded by stating, as a matter of fact, that Eisenhower negotiated a treaty with Aliens so that in exchange for 5,000 citizens each year, we get peace with Aliens. She’s also anti-vax despite having been hospitalized for 4 days with COVID. I’m speaking to a lawyer this week, but am I unreasonable to think this thinking and behavior is grounds to modify our custody agreement?
Was preserving your wedding bouquet worth it post ceremony? I’m trying to decide if I’d like to have mine preserved and put in a frame or in one of those clear boxes that can be made. I’m getting married on Saturday at our home in a super intimate ceremony. We cancelled the big celebration after already postponing once due to COVID. It would be my one item from the day besides pictures and my wedding band of course. It’s not cheap, so curious to hear thoughts. Recommendations are also welcome!
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
For the women in Chicago. Are there any cool spots you feel comfortable going on your own? Broke up during Covid and I realize I never go to bars or restaurants any more because I’m so used to not being on my own. I can drag friends with me but damnit I’m an adult. lol. I should be able to do this on my own!
Women who are not getting the Covid vaccine because they are afraid of infertility or the effect on pregnancy - do you mind sharing your reasons why? I’m genuinely curious what resources you have used to make your decision. For instance, my friend says there is an NYU study that shows it has effects on fertility, and I have no clue what she’s saying because I can’t find this study anywhere.

How do you deal with family in India believing and spreading every false rumor/forwarded message on WhatsApp? I stopped correcting them a few years ago when I realized it was bad for my relationship with them, but the forwards nowadays especially related to Covid is outright dangerous (and obviously false when read by an educated person). Very worried about this
Anyone have parents divorce/separate later in life? Still processing how to feel. My parents decided to divorce after 30+ years of marriage. I think they realized they weren't happy after my sister and I finished college, they retired, and the covid situation removed all distractions.

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers.

How often do you find yourself fighting department red tape? "I've got an idea the client and I want to test, let's try this thing." "We don't do that." "Explain that. What do you mean you don't do the thing the client and I want to test?" "Department protocol is to do this other useless thing." I understand why dictators exist.
