When you're the most junior person on the team so you have to walk 5 blocks in the pouring rain in NYC to pick up name tents for a client meeting 😒
Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?

I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
What do you do when the client starts to think you're also their personal assistant? Is this common behavior?
I’ve gone client side and looking for an agency that can help us produce paid social content, specifically videos. We have the footage already so more someone that can concept and has motion design capabilities. Any recos?

My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years.

Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
