Back in June. Haven’t gotten anything since.

Yikes!

Hapily my experience was the opposite, I got hired during Covid.

I was laid off last May along with 14 others via zoom. Been freelancing since.

PSA: TIPS TO GET YOUR COVID VACCINE IN NYC Your best bet to getting a vaccine in NYC is CVS. Why? Because you can select your time first, and CVS will give you 30 min to fill out the form after vs the other NYC sites. If you refresh the availability exactly when it drops at 12 am, you have a better chance. Tips and details in the comments below. If you are an Anti-Vaxxer - please move along...this is not the post to debate about it.

I moved with my husband and 2-year-old from Brooklyn to the NJ suburbs in November and am feeling so overwhelmingly lonely. My work isn’t very social, I don’t have any friends nearby, and throwing Covid into the mix, I feel incredibly alone. Anyone else go through this? Does it get better?

I have a 16-month-old son and not a single mom friend. It feels so pathetic to write that. I'd love to find other moms so my kid can have playdates, but also so I can have someone to talk to, commiserate with, give advice, etc. Because of COVID, there isn't much opportunity to interact with other parents at daycare dropoff, and with classes and playgroups scarce, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips or success stories? Or anyone in Brooklyn want to be friends?
