Is anyone else navigating challenging family dynamics in the face of another COVID surge over the holidays? I have a sister close to my own age with 4 kids (2 are under 5 the other 2 are over 5) and who recently overcame breast cancer and she refuses to get herself and her eligible children vaccinated. My husband and I are both vaccinated (and boosted) and feel very uncomfortable traveling home to visit with family. My mom is making it a huge issue and doesn’t understand our reasons, despite

I have gotten so sedentary during COVID - and then this week noticed that my Apple Watch was giving me more exercise points than I have gotten in a long time. And I thought - wow, maybe I am pacing around the apartment more and kind of being a badass without realizing. But now I think it is really that the algorithm shifted and expects me to be such a slug that anytime I walk to the coffee maker , it is the equivalent of a marathon for me, so I am getting more points

I’m only in my early 30s but I feel like I’m becoming that sour associate who’s starting to think “well back in my time…” I hate that I’m becoming that person and am trying to fix that attitude, but I’ve also come across more junior associates post COVID who seem burnt out already and does not give a f about their work product. No sense of responsibility or trying to own a task, not interested in getting trained, always off camera when we’re on, logs off early everyday, and looking to coast

If you joined consulting out of undergrad prior to 2020, do you still like your job now that it’s fully remote? I started in summer 2018 and loved the travel, hanging out with team, happy hours and cool events to balance out the demanding work environment. Now I feel like this job is lame and I dont even know what my clients look like and just talk to a screen all day. Being “young”, I feel I should be doing something more exciting even in the Covid world.... anyone else?

We also happen to be moving to a new city - a city I’ve wanted to live in for awhile and he happened to get into bschool there.

Am I the only one looking forward to returning to the office on at least a part-time basis? By the amount of posts I see about people applying for remote roles or wanting to quit if they have to return to the office it seems like the minority view. I’m tired of talking to a screen all day. Bring on the energy of in-person brainstorms, internal reviews, and presentations to clients who are in the room.

Is anyone else surprised by the sense of entitlement you see with some of the younger folks/recent grads in tech? One recent example: Our company is offering several generous options as holiday gifts, one of them a new Apple Watch. One employee asked if there was another brand they could have instead. Pre-COVID, someone complained how we didn’t get catered lunch every day, only 3 days a week. In my first job, I was lucky to have a pot of hot coffee. I know, I sound like an old fogey.
