Can you do a shorter sabbatical within your own firm when things calm down?

I haven't stepped away from a job for that long before, but I suspect that with 2 years of experience, it may be harder to sell yourself coming back, vs someone with 4+ years and 2-3 titles in their resume. Just my gut feeling.

Not the time. Stack your money and plan a road trip for 2021. That’s all I got for you.

I’m thinking about doing this too. Almost 3 years post-UG

I did. Feel free to DM!

Rule of thumb, get promotion first.

My SO lives for being center of attention. He does everything around his friends group and we travel only with groups instead of by ourselves. On these trips, he makes no time for us to do things alone, we don’t have sex and won’t even spend 30 mins with me to talk, cuddle etc. He wants me around him in his friend group but I don’t always want that.
I don’t know how to make heads or tails of this. But I am sad that my partner doesn’t like to spend alone with me.

Anyone know the difference between a hike and an outdoor walk on an Apple Watch/fitness? I have a loop in my neighborhood I’ll walk that gives me a 800ft elevation gain so in that regard it’s more like a hike, but it’s also on a flat dirt road so that part is more like a walk. I’m guessing hiking is expecting more uneven terrain that requires additional stabilizers/muscle. Thoughts?
