cont. Lately, my position has become less accounting related and I would like to find something similar or better suited to where I am headed career wise (I am thinking audit). Also about to start recruitment season for internships, but right now, I still need a part-time gig in my life for cash flow reasons. My question is, what did you do part time in college that helped you around this time? Do you have any suggestions for what I should be looking for position wise or should I just be waiting tables for the flexibility? Any constructive and useful advice and experience would be appreciated. Thank you! I live in Houston, if that helps.

I was an exam proctor during my BBA. Gave me great flexibility to focus on school when I needed to, and is vaguely elated to audit too (rule enforcement).

Just started in-house and my days are full of meetings with little time in between to analyze or process anything. Is this typical? I keep taking lots of notes but haven’t had a chance to really review and reflect on my notes, to follow up and investigate or do any strategic or legal analysis. Lots of on the fly work for now. Maybe it’s like this just the first few days where I’m getting the lay of the land? But I suspect it’ll be like this for a while… Any tips appreciated.

I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

Just read an article about how the first doses of the vaccine will be doled out. Am I the only one who is really heartened by the global response to COVID-19? Sure, the US and other countries led by conservative despots bungled it, but, on the whole humanity came together, wore masks, hunkered down, made a vaccine in record time. These actions were largely motivated by fear but also compassion for vulnerable people. I mean, we did it y’all!
