I am an anxious mess with regular caffeine.

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

Dilemma: I was friends with a couple that broke up in 2020, known them both since college but closer to the woman. She and I have been talking and hanging since their breakup and gotten closer, and she shared a lot of her frustrations about her ex.

I left a comment on ex's IG and we started chatting about life. He wants to hang (def not a date) and we are still friends, just not as close. Also, both of them work in the industry.

Should I tell my friend that I had coffee with her ex?

I’m struggling. I left an agency I liked last year due to growth limitations and since then I’ve worked at 2 different agencies and can’t seem to find my footing. The first one seemed like a good fit at first but then it turned out to not be the best place for me so I left. At my current agency I feel super undervalued. I’m always raising my hand and offering to help where I can and no matter what I do, I don’t feel utilized or valued or part of the team.It’s really taken a toll on my confidence
