To be honest, not really. The only thing that worries me is getting the extreme flu symptoms cos I hate getting ill. But other than that, I think if you are under a certain age (70) and not immunocompromised, there is little chance of it killing you. Having said that, I am observing all the hand washing and non face touching stuff

I wasn’t worried until I watched the Brit from wuhan explaining what it was like. It sounds shit! But apparently 80% will only have mild symptoms

My maternity leave will be over in couple weeks and I will be working from home with our daughter until the end of this year. We’ve decided not to send her to daycare this year due to COVID. Husband will go to work early and come home by lunch time to WFH and help take care of her. I’m having a lot of anxiety thinking how we will manage WFH with 4mo! Please share your experience and advice. We are open to part time nanny but this COVID thing is making us really concerned. Thanks in advance.

Nobody has said it, and generally people seem to be content, but I feel like my work product is slipping. There’s been a rush of urgent tasks recently where I don’t have much opp to review. Partner doesn’t seem to get upset, and said he recognizes the pressure, but I feel like my mistakes have gone up. In part because of rush, but also feel like covid and WFH have impacted by morale and I just feel exhausted more so than even (even as my billables have declined since slowdown). Anyone else?

I just got a new job offer that is a good career pivot towards a specialty I’ve always wanted. The salary is a bit more than what I’m making (but not considerably more). Afraid of making this leap during a global economic downturn. I’m pretty safe in my current role, but I’ve plateaued and and have not loved the work for a while now (even got to switch clients and still not satisfied). Any thoughts on waiting out covid in a safe but loveless role vs venturing out in the WFH unknown?

I work small (tiny) law. I make mid-100s, so not great salary, but my firm is so laid back. If I bill 1000 hours, that's fine (we were a remote firm before COVID made it cool). Compared to all my peers getting crushed under 1800+ billable requirements, I've got severe imposter's syndrome. Did I do something right or have I set myself up for failure by avoiding the pressure cooker? (I was at a firm for 2 years that was 1800+.) Curious as to thoughts/experiences.

Treat company response to the Covid-19 outbreak as a test of company culture. Companies that promote work life balance that are guilting people to come in and sit at a desk may make you think twice.

I want to quit so bad. I've saved up enough to last me nearly 2 years of living expenses. I planned to quit in April but then COVID hit and I was advised by all my friends not to. Not sure I can take it anymore. It's not even the work environment, it's the work. Idgaf about financial reporting, audit, risk or compliance. I didn't even major in it.

Hello ladies, looking for some feedback on the communication below between this younger guy and I in a LDR. It’s been 3 months that we are together and haven’t met yet b’coz of Covid, been chatting and calling each other as time permits, he is an hour behind my time. Font in grey is him and green is me. Thought I am being funny by sending the last pic but doesn’t appear like he took it that way.
