For those of you not renewing your leases/ moving out of cities, what are you doing with your furniture, etc. for the time being? How are you facilitating your move? Lease is up at the end of the month and not sure if I should renew. Would hate to spend that much $$ if I’m not living there (I’m currently WFH with my parents in a different state)
Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)

Considering leaving EY for a 300 FTE consulting firm, mainly govt sector, for a strategic talent role (non-client facing). Current Manager in a long-term product management role. Offer is 30% increase, director title, and fully remote. Concerned about jumping to a company I had never heard of prior to LinkedIn connection. Thoughts? 30% too low for this type of jump?
Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but does anyone have an eating disorder and find this way of life incredibly triggering? I was doing so much better when I was remote and local, and now that I'm always traveling, I'm not doing so hot.

We have 3 rooms booked at a Marriott, I have 10 suite upgrade nights...can I use 3 of them for 3 diff rooms on same night?

Used to clerk for a federal judge. Former judicial intern of judge just emailed me saying she’s interested in applying and would like to discuss my experience there? Am I allowed? I feel like I’ve never heard of people doing this. I can’t seem to think of a reason why I couldn’t speak to her but I feel like clerkships always have weird rules about them.
Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.

For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
