Curious about what those who have attended has to say. Me and my partner are planning to go see it next week and I would really want to know if it's worth it. I don't want to waste my time getting excited for nothing lol.

I hope it is. I'm not usually one for holiday events and I tend to avoid them like tha plague but I've heard so many good things about it which is why I considered going after my friends invited me.

I am planning to! If anyone here had experienced this please share your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?

What’s the expectation if you were free for most of the day and your boss assigns you billable work in the afternoon?

What are most company standards for vacation time and PTO for small companies? We do 10 days after 1 yr, 15 days after 2yrs 15days after 5yrs and 20 days after 10yrs. PTO is accrued monthly after your first 90 days. 40-45 hrs. average is full time, 30-35 hrs. average is part-time. Does this sound reasonable?

Any clue how much I can expect my body/bump to grow between 8w3d and 12w3d? I am small (5’4 115lbs) and so far have not gained any weight but my once mostly flat stomach is already not flat anymore and I have a tiny bump under my belly button. I need to figure out a dress for my work holiday party in 4 weeks. I don’t know if I will be able to wear my normal size if the dress has some room in the lower belly or if I will be bigger all over (even in the rib cage area) and will need a bigger size.

Living in Van. Previously lived in Toronto. Obviously rent prices are high as is cost of living. Generally go out and spend more often living in a city. Boyfriend and I on good salary but not saving much due to the above. Before we move home to our own country, we’d love to spend a year close to Vancouver where rent is cheaper, temptation is less, to save. A commute to Vancouver 1-2 times a month needs to be possible (his job). That can be a flight if it’s not crazy. Thoughts? Recommendations?
