Guesses as to what happens to remote hires when offices life comes back? Not talking the local WFH crowd, but full-time COVID hires that live elsewhere. 1) allowed to stay remote ad infinitum 2) option to relocate to the office, but not required 3) slowly phased out for local talent Obviously if you have ladder-climbing ambitions you'll need to be in the office to play that game, but it gets more interesting for the work-to-live crowd.

Offices could become a thing of the past...

I don’t think that will ever happen on a broad scale. Maybe square footage will no longer be a yardstick for success, certainly WFH won’t get the eye rolls it used to, but too much is lost without physical interaction, from both a productivity and cultural perspective.

Why do I keep hearing from everyone and their mother that the COVID vaccine doesn’t hurt and it just feels like a little pinch and may feel sore a day or two after at the sight of injection. I mean, is this really a novel experience? We’ve been getting vaccines for years now, why do people talk about it like it’s some new invention that no one has heard of before?????

Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.

I gained over 25 pounds over lockdown, went for drinks with colleagues for the first time since March 2020, and the very next day I had other colleagues messaging me on teams and dropping remarks about how they are walking a lot these days to drop COVID weight. It might be a coincidence but probably not. Feels like my weight was discussed a lot behind my back as no one else in the group of people that went out had gained weight.

Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
