Went to kids holiday party using Lyft. My son gets car sick easily so I warn the driver right away. Lots of traffic + he breaks pretty hard = my 2yo threw up 2 blocks before we get off. 5 min later ..
Are there any agencies that are actually liberal and only have clients that are moving society forward? Sick of working for brands I don't believe in or for clients whose beliefs conflict with my own.
I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
Everyone in NYC is sick 😷
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

All creatives are lazy and hide under the notion that “it’s okay we’re creative and that’s just how we work.” Step up. Be professional. Hit your deadlines. Work collaboratively. I’m so sick of the whining about planners, clients, budgets. Do your job. You want to go paint then go paint.

It makes me sick as a man when I see people with power, authority bully and harass others. It's time to stand up and fight these abusers.
Can you switch firms while on short term disability? Can you resign right after the disability leave and join other firm?
Does anyone get anxious every few days that they're getting sick ...? I'll be fine for a couple days, then have a day where I'm second guessing every throat tickle or sniff. It's aggivating.
Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self...

Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
Since partners no longer get subsidized health care coverage from their firms, do any partners purchase health care through the aca marketplace exchange? Even without a premium tax credit from the exchange, it would have to be cheaper than paying full price via the firm’s plan unsubsidized. I heard that some get coverage thru a spouse’s plan, but what if the spouse’s family plan from their employer is really bad? Curious to hear about options out there.

My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.
