Travel in FDD... I really want to join EY FDD, but don't want to travel. All the job postings say travel up to 40%. Is there anyone in FDD now that can tell me whether they think travel will start back up anytime soon (if ever)? Also, are you guys mostly remote right now, or in office?
Just finished my first year with the firm - enough points for an international round trip flight, along with a few days at a hotel. With that said, not a lot of spending money - where should I go?

How much have you spent on mileage run? http://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/the-madness-of-airline-elite-status
I’m vaccinated but getting very nervous about the delta variant. I’m reading a lot about pretty bad breakthrough cases. My husband is immunocompromised (but vaccinated). Most people at my office don’t seem to care at all about Covid, we don’t have a mask policy, etc. I’m getting really nervous about spending so much time in the office. Ugh

Question about LEAPs. I purchased 1/2022 calls on a few down in the dumps real estate stocks like IVR. When I read about leaps, the advice was to buy some thing with a minimum delta of .70, So I bought, for example, a 1.50 call for IVR. If this stock reaches pre-Covid levels, and my LEAP is deep, deep ￼l￼TM, will I have trouble selling it? Thanks, this is my first day.￼

Bf and I are commuter LDR, so only see each other on weekends. He never stays more than a day because he’s an introvert and “needs his me-time”. He went over to WFH from his friend’s cabin on Tuesday, and is planning on staying the weekend rather than visiting me. I want him to have his fun, but I’m irritated.
