How is south eastern denver metro? Thinking of moving to Aurora for a year to ride out coronavirus
Is it just me but have political correctness, individualism and self esteem mongering gone too far? I can’t tell anything to my 22 year old daughter unless it’s sweet, light and approving at all times. Any instruction, input advice has to be provided in sweet tones or I am mean and vicious. I feel so fake about not being irritated, anxious or impatient around her, always this carefully cultivated calm model mother. It’s COVID times and we have had a death in the family, gods sake! Let me be me!
Anyone ever get burned out after only 3 years? My first year was awesome. 2nd year, covid hit. This year, my schedule has had to change 3 times so far. I have the largest caseload in my school. I feel that I'm not good enough. Got thrown under the bus today. Just had a no good, horrible kind of day.
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
SAs at AWS - how much did you use to travel in pre-Covid times? Was it a consulting-style 4-days per week?
For schools with a mask mandate: Are you having trouble enforcing it? In our school it's become a nightmare. A third of them are wearing their masks as CHINSTRAPS! it happened really suddenly a few weeks ago. The other 2/3 don't cover their noses. I address it over and over again. Five minutes after I do, it's back on the chin. I think it's become some kind of "cool" thing to do. I'm addressing those with mask mandates, NOT looking for a debate. Abusive arguments = reported 🌈🌈🌈
I have moderate-conservative views. My team, 6 other people, are all very left-leaning. Politics isn't usually discussed outright, but the liberal views frequently seep into our meetings. It's uncomfortable for me; I can't chime in when they talk about media, covid, news, etc. because I don't agree with their snuck premises. I get along with all of them and I don't think they realize I'm basically a closet conservative. Anyone else feel like a total outsider on their team?
Coronavirus. Worried or not worried?
I’m in an upcoming wedding and just found out the bride and groom aren’t vaccinated nor do they plan to. Do I pull out of the wedding? Most of the invitees won’t be either I’m guessing and masks are optional. I’m vaccinated and in the bridal party but I’m really nervous with the Delta variant. I want to be supportive but she hid this from everyone until now.
How do I reconcile my own ethics around individual and society acting on Coronavirus? I believe that people should act responsibly for the safety of others (by social distancing, masks, etc.) but I also feel like people should have the ability to decide what they want to do based off their risk tolerance. But doing so would increase the risk to others.. how do I settle the cognitive dissonance between these two ideas?
Is it weird to mention i got laid off due to Covid in calls with recruiters? They keep asking what I’m up to/why I’m searching and really not sure how to phrase without coming off negative or desperate. It’s a buzzkill during a good conversation but I feel like it’s going to come up sooner or later?
Anyone love their job pre-COVID but now find themselves hating their job with the main aspects of frustration related to COVID related situations?
Anyone considering pushing their MBA applications back a year due to Covid? I'm strongly considering it rn. Would love to hear everyone's thoughts.
Hello! How are you covering COVID in the yearbook? We were thinking of doing a fun spread showcasing different masks kids wear.
I am feeling this strange attraction to the partner I work for. I know it’s stupid and we have only ever met ONCE (I joined the firm just before Covid started). I think lockdown has got to me
I’m a 21 F and i currently live in the Midwest. Lately I’ve been thinking to move to a bigger city (CA, FL, NYC). Are there any tips from those who made the move or those who currently live in the bigger cities of those states? It would be after covid of course.
I’m confused... why is the White House Coronavirus task force running the show rather than the CDC? Isn’t this exactly what the CDC is supposed to be doing? Anyone here have intel?
A first world problem for you guys - Through the last year, I was doing a data science course and juggling ZS. After almost 1.5 years, I am in a scenario where I am bored out of my mind on weekends because I have nothing to do. Any suggestions? I had Goa planned but Covid ne le li! TIA
How is the DC dating scene now? Asking for a friend who might move down to the city during COVID.

How does this sound?
how to get around the cooldown period for BCG, could i just create another profile? made it to final round a few months back and wanted to interview in the next couple months rather than waiting until 2022
I recently went through a long period of rough time. And this friend of mine was there for me for most part. I did use to reach out to them when I didn’t feel good. And I probably know they mean good but they know now I’m doing fine and still every time we chat they ask “doing well?” Asking me doing well only reminds me of my not so good times and don’t know how to tell them to stop asking that every single time.
Anyone filed for an L1 extension with USCIS this year? How long until you got it approved? Been waiting since may...
