Is English your second language? I always told my mom to watch more English shows to get more comfortable. I personally used to read a lot as a kid. One of my English teachers in school would say “you should always read like a writer, and write like a reader.”

Don’t you mean “written” communication? 🙂

No I think OP meant “writing” above as a verb, and “communications” in the sense of org, corporate, leadership or other such forms of communication. You can write messages and emails and prose and poetry but you cannot “write communications”.

I recently changed my employer with decent salary increment and a title bump(Manager). Unfortunately I am stuck with Manager who is really rude, micromanages and when asked for help shows authority. Every day since i joined has been miserable and I just don't feel motivated to work. Also work life balance has been sketchy. Changing jobs is really challenging due to immigration restrictions and bad economy. Any help fishes? How should I deal with this?

New to freelance. Anyone ever worked on a small project without signing a W9? Client is willing to pay upfront but wondering if this is normal or a red flag.

2 years ago I decided to chop my salary for WL balance, and it worked - depression became manageable. But losing all that $ and momentum was painful. My current job is in Covid danger, but I’m also in the final rounds to return to double the salary, but double the work. I don’t know, what a shitty choice.

To the person raising concerns on Delta's inability to accurately show delays - I'm on board. At gate, plane "leaves" in 17 min but isn't even at gate; yet Delta still is calling it on time... 😡
