4mo pregnant and having one of those hell project days where all I want to do is slam my computer shut and pour myself a Hendricks and Tonic and slowly melt into a puddle in the sunshine. ... Anyone got any good nonalcoholic coping mechanisms for these days?

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?
Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

Alright so fine there were not many diversity initiatives in the past and not a huge push to create more diversity in organizations. But now is the time you can change that. Moving forward you can put these these initiatives in place.
Anyone know anything about Marakon? Post MBA Comp? Culture? I tried the search function and got nothing. I checked Glassdoor but seems like all of the entries are written by the company itself.
is it a red flag to you if your decently sized mid law firm has never once mentioned pro bono opportunities? we don’t have any kind of diversity initiative either and obviously i know how i feel about THAT. but was wondering how weird this part of it is.

I do not want to go back to the office after coronavirus has stopped/reduced. My productivity has increased, my work quality has improved. Anyone else feeling the same way?
First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.
