Officially working remote instead of client site. Top three things that came to mind: 1) more doggo cuddles at home 2) comfy clothes 3) shit, I’m gonna have to buy groceries 😂
I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
I’ve secretly been loving the WFH situation and it’s been great spending more time with my kids and seeing them throughout the day. I’m really not looking forward to going back to the office when we reopen. Anyone else in the same boat? I’m going to be so sad.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

I interned and started my career all within the confines of quarantine. Any tips for standing out when all you’ve known is remote work?
I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up. Do all the work given to me, pass my tests, follow up with people to look to get on an engagement. I feel like Im doing fine but WFH I feel very lost and alone as to what I’m supposed to be doing. Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?
I've been taking the silver line shuttle to Boston south station instead of an uber to save the client money, but I almost just got trampled and a suitcase fell on me. Never again 😰🙅🏻

3 single consultants at DFW. Who's here?
Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…

As a consultant who is not looking to go back to consulting (B,M,BCG) and making $106K now, is a MBA worth it or is it better to work my way up within my company to get the $$$$?
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
