Buy a sim in country at one of the convenience stores. Heck 7 11 is all over SEA. Use wifi when possible. Use apps like whatsapp, viber, Google vocie etc.

I used Verizon travelpass. Cost me $10 a day for unlimited date, texts, calls

I have Verizon @D4 so tht seems like a deal! Does the unlimited data throttle down after a certain point or was it fine?

Yeah you lose high speed after 1/2 gigs. Never was an issue for me though

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

I am so overwhelmed this year.... I feel like I'm not a good enough teacher for my students and at the same time not a good mom to my 4 year old and baby. There are days when I feel like I'm breaking. I'm not sure if this is the product of teaching during a pandemic or becoming a full-time working mom with 2 young children, or a combination of both. I just can't keep up. 😢 I always question walking away from teaching but I'm not sure if that would make life better for me and my kids.
