I went 50 days without drinking but this is too much. I stole a Heineken from my dad. Anyone else lost the dry quarantine challenge?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. First thing I bought was whiskey, beer and more whiskey. I’ve been drinking for 57 days straight. And it’s amazing. 2 drink a day challenge is like a cleanse of awesome.

I was drinking like crazy before this all started and thought it was a good oppo to reset. But I’ll blame this one on the world.

Any advice for a retail manager/hiring manager looking to break into tech as a recruiter. Recruiting is something I’m genuinely passionate about but eager to do on a bigger scale. I hired roughly 150 people last year for my store alone on top of hiring management candidates for stores in the surrounding area. Im just so certain that my drive and skills will be an asset in the tech industry… not to seem cocky. I’m hungry for success and being promoted 3 times in the past 2 years shows it.

It’s downright spam at this point. I even have my “open to work” settings configured to clearly specify the level of roles Im open to. Just out here venting! Ugh

I’ve been at my job 3 years which is relatively short compared to others on my team. I feel like I have to work twice as hard to achieve near or equal level of recognition. Within S1 I was ranked as “average” when I’ve had greater responsibilities and successfully managed more complex projects. When I asked my boss what I needed to do to be above average he told me to keep going as I am. How does that make sense? If I don’t need to change anything, why am I only “average” now? Any advice please?

Anybody else feel like they took year 1 of the pandemic for granted, from a perspective of learning new skills / self-improvement? Personally, I feel like I did. Starting in January, I buckled down on myself to play my guitar every day, instead of a couple of times a week. Also, given that D recently communicated we’ll be virtual first until September, I’m trying to up my cooking game, and learning a bit more about home improvement. What new skills / hobbies are you all working on?
