Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.

Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Someone tested positive for COVID-19 in my office today. They’re only shutting the office down for one afternoon for “deep cleaning” and not requiring any self isolation. Is this normal? Has anyone had a similar experience?
If any of you ladies froze your eggs when did you do so? Do you wish you did it sooner? When do you think is the ideal age to do so? Are you more likely to get covered if you get it at a later age? It’s looking less likely to find a partner due to covid / difficulties dating in this climate so I’m beginning to look into egg freezing options. Would appreciate any advice / insight 🤗

So during COVID time, I see more and more people are shifting their attention to MBA instead getting to FAANG? Sounds like a good time to study amid this hard time.
To the folks that don’t want to get the vaccine, what is your reason? This seems like a strange hill to die on considering people losing their livelihood over this
Have any of your law firms published a new or revised “remote work” policy - specifically what it might look like post Covid? We’ve had a lot of employees (in all peer groups) say they would like some type of flexibility to work at home going forward. We are trying to start a draft with some perimeters and look at all the pluses and minuses.
Any ideas that people have on how to network/break into circles of tech startups? Long story short, joined a tech Fortune 500 company a little over a year ago as an entry level analyst and things have gone downhill with COVID (limited growth here but got exposure). Looking to start new with a startup as I grew tired of the ethics of a larger corp. I have no network as it stands in tech startups, don't come from a target school (although I graduated with honors) and at a loss of where to start.
Lost retainer beginning of pandemic and haven’t been able to get replacement (Covid/Moving Out of State/ Other Priorities). Top teeth have shifted back to some extent, bottom teeth have built in retainer so haven’t moved. Back at parents home now and want to fix this mistake, what are realistic expectations? Full Invisalign program ~ 2-3k, Orthodontist to give me some break since we’ve already paid X thousand, some middle ground? Just want to try and be prepared on fair expectations.
(Assuming borders open next year/for ‘23) Are Sydney and Cairns better in May or in October? Was supposed to go in March pre covid but won’t be able to go that month before the travel credits expire. Are those off peak months pricing wise and still tolerable temperature wise?
Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
I’m on the email list for my niece’s university. What are your opinions about this notice? “Asymptomatic surveillance testing will be mandatory. To monitor COVID-19 within the VCU community, VCU will continue to randomly sample asymptomatic VCU community members for testing each week. Asymptomatic surveillance testing (previously referred to as “prevalence” testing) will continue throughout the remainder of the fall semester...”

Think I messed up.. I was supposed to email the partner asking what is going on with one project team lead, I emailed the project team lead asking what went wrong… anything to do about this
unpopular opinion… but i feel like my bf is too passive, to the point he doesn’t seem to care as much. Whenever I get sick all he says is “oh no feel better!” And doesn’t text until I say I’m feeling better. I’ve explained to him that I like to feel taken care of in cases where I’m sick and I reciprocate when he is. He says he’s giving me space so I explained that I would wish he can offer help or ask questions like so. But he still reverts to the same response. How should I process this?
