I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?
Thoughts on back to the office in September? Am I the only one who feel like we need to just stay out until the worst is behind us with COVID? Even with the vaccine, the Delta variant is starting to worry me with the current RTO plan.
Does anyone have experience with travelling to Bangalore via Dubai on Emirates? I got a cheap ticket but wanted to find out if there are any flight cancellations. Best part is Emirates is offering free cancellation and changes. TIA!

Any good leadership books?
Hey everyone! I’m having a bit of trouble and I wanted to know if I can get some guidance. I have been on the same project for four years now and I’m doing great job. I’ve gone up in the ranks and now I am the clients right hand person. However in talking with my people manager, he wants to discuss where I plan on going in my career. And honestly, I haven’t really thought about it. I have always been raised to just do my job and go home. And honestly I’m fine with that. But when it comes to 1/2￼
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Looking for an art partner to come in at the ACD or what my agency calls “group art supervisor” level.

Thoughts on selecting the Russell 1000 index fund for my 401k? Expense ratio of 0.01%. I was considering the target date fund, but I’m 25 and don’t really want any bonds atm.
Ugh. Democrats will see this as obvious proof that many conservatives are conspiracy theorists that have lost their minds, conservatives will see this as proof the deep state exists and that this dude fought it with inside information. Or proof that you can be fired for "conservative views..." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/21/nih-william-crews-covid-19-fraud-retire-anthony-fauci/5860559002/
