Frank admissions of the day... Things I do not miss: Going to the office. Seeing coworkers. Getting dressed up in uncomfortable gear. Doing stupid team activities after work. 💐 Gifts of Covid era!!

Our school is preparing for a student initiated “mask off” tomorrow. Students are planning a little civil disobedience. Any student not wearing a mask will be sent home.

Personally, I applaud them for standing up for themselves.

Our administrator is intent on seeing it fail, but such is the game...

Has anyone else encountered this?

Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.

I don’t really face clients except on Zoom, and even post-Covid I don’t see that changing due to the nature of our meetings.

Would love to hear people’s thoughts.

This is a fact that fans of Trump either chose to ignore or just don’t give a damn. I find it embarrassing that people are enthusiastic about a man that proclaims that he beat it ( with a heavy dose of privilege and tax payers money) and mind numbingly claims that ‘don’t be afraid of covid’ ?

This is the reality people that our president don’t like to tweet about

Lot of fear in the market right now (understandably so). The situation in Ukraine is awful and the potential consequences are scary to think about.

There are some who want to sell in fear of their investments falling further. Do not do this. Hold and continue to buy more. Continue your 401k contributions, and add whatever you can afford after every paycheck into your brokerage. Those who sold the covid crash were often late buying back in.

This is the dip you're worried about.

So he has some relevant firm experience, but the other firms’ operations are different. Anyway, I basically have to do both of our work, and he’s sooooo casual about it too. I partially feel like he can only get away with this due to workplace sexism. (1/2)
