I feel super manic lately. One minute I want to start my own side agency writing and making videos and doing social work for smaller, local businesses. The next I want to flip furniture on FB marketplace or get really into woodworking or gardening or maybe start a YouTube channel, or be a better activist. Anyone else feeling this more intensely lately because of COVID-times or is this just my own personality disorder manifesting in new ways?

Hey everyone! I need some advice. I’ve accepted an offer for a new job, but I’m in a bit of a rush to get out of the position I’m working right now. I start the new job July 18. My job now doesn’t care about their employees, and it’s a health risk for my family and I due to unsafe COVID policies (i.e. forcing you to come in even if you’re sick, making you use PTO for COVID even if working from home, etc). Is there anything short term I can do until July? Or should I stay until then?

Life is never fair: some of us considered promotions as such an important milestone in our life and busts our ass for it, and they don’t get it due to COVID. Others don’t even care about their job and don’t care about their manager’s feedback and still got to stay in the company.

Hi everyone, looking for advice on current job situation. Recently left Deloitte after a few years for a job in industry, primarily because I was burnt out since COVID began. Have been at new company for a couple months and have enjoyed it, but recently heard back from another interview and received offer with higher comp in my industry/company of preference. I understand that I’ll probably be blacklisted at my current company, but what other repercussions should I be concerned about if I switch
