How much travelling does AWS ProServe Consultants need to do? Is it as high as 80% on average? P.S. this is considering normal pre-COVID circumstances.
With the weather getting better and things opening up, I feel the pressure to do things. I was social before covid and had a set of friends, but most of my friends moved out of town (not coming back) and I feel like I’ve lost my socializing skills. I feel like I’m not cool enough for the city and I get sad when I don’t have plans for the weekend. Feeling lonely/ a bit depressed/ sad about it. Anyone feeling the same? I am putting efforts to socialize, but it just doesn’t feel the same.

Do you think restaurants/eateries will close in the fall/winter if there’s a resurgence of high COVID cases again? Don’t care to dine in, but would order take out or delivery. I’m moving to an area with great restaurants nearby and I’d like to continue supporting and getting food from those places at least once a week while I can afford to.
All I can think when I see the arguments about covid death counts: This country needs a crash course on proximate causation.

Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date?

Parents coming here on visitor visa. Recommendation on good health insurance that would cover them here? Ton of stuff on Google but not sure about cust exp and claims. Appreciate suggestions
Being an ACD that’s over 40, I feel people wonder why am I not a CD or ECD yet. I was a late bloomer in advertising, didn’t aggressively chase advancement, and made the mistake of staying at agencies way too long, so I climbed up slowly.
I’ll wait till the holiday weekend ends then send out a survey to get an idea of the demographics we have in this group

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.

Cross posting this but could use the female perspective — Got a really substantial (~40%) mid year raise after I brought in a basically unsolicited competing offer from one of our peers. My firm typically only adjusts salary on an annual basis in March, and I’m pretty worried I’ll see a smaller than normal annual raise this spring to “make up for” my out of sequence mid year raise. Any advice on advocating for myself to ensure that doesn’t happen?
ECD, during a covid briefing, verbalizes profound dismay with how people are receiving covid ads. Cannot understand why people do not like separated arches and soda billboards. "They're great."
Anyone have any good recommendations for Financial Advisors / Wealth Mgmt? TC: 105k, I max out my 401k but feel lost with what to do after that - still paying student loans, but should have those done within the year. Didn’t come from any money so a lot of this is foreign to me - thanks!
