I want to go with my spouse on a wonderful beach vacation. Our honeymoon (almost two years ago now) was cancelled due to covid, and I had booked us at the St Regis Bora Bora on points. I have been unable to get that deal again, and feel very annoyed. We live on the west coast on the US and would like to go somewhere that is less than 6 hrs of travel, that is romantic, private, quiet, beachy, relaxing. Any resort, boutique hotel or perhaps vacation rental recommendations under $800 a night?
What do y’all talk to your SO about after work. With us both working from home, we are kinda in the loop of what happened all day more or less. Then at dinner we don’t want to talk about more coronavirus or work . Any ideas to get some new conversations going?
Please visit and read this article: https://ourworldindata.org/mortality-risk-covid I routinely assign articles from this site. They’re easy to understand no matter your stats experience. The site is VERY well respected. Ignore what side of the debate you’re on; pause to understand the math of CoVid fatalities. The article is not political. It explains how to calculate case fatality, crude mortality, and infection fatality plus how they can/can’t be used. News from all sides interchange these stats, but they mean very different things.

There is no commentary involved in this post, just an interesting datapoint. A friend of mine from grad school now runs a funeral home in rural Colorado. This month, 7 out of her 11 “customers”are COVID deaths. What wild times we live in…
Why do you think everything is so busy right now? We’re pretty much sold out worldwide and my friends at McK say the same. What would cause such a large spike in business? People prepping for post-COVID?
I wonder what this means for return to office plans.
Consider a new pandemic, at what % fatality rate do you think vaccines will mandated by law for all citizens? This is not the last pandemic society will face. COVID has a low death rate compared to Ebola for example. What % fatality rate would it take for governments around the world including the US to legally require mandatory vaccinations of all citizens? Would it be 10%? 20? 50%? fatality rate? Or will we never mandate vaccines in lieu of personal freedom?
My bf’s best friend is getting married Jan 2022. Big Indian wedding in Florida. I’m nervous that the Covid situation will still be a concern then (if not in the US, then in India, as many of the couple’s family are flying over). We need to RSVP soon. What would you do? My bf and I are double vaxxed but...am I too paranoid about the variants?
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)

Anyone do improv? I’m moving to NYC in a couple months and I’m curious what the scene out there will be like post-covid, and when classes will be opening back up.
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it

Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
