What are the best social strategies you’ve seen in your life (not in response to COVID-19)?
I’m tired of hearing about COVID 24/7. What other interesting things have happened over the past month for you or in the world?
Any other districts closing? LAUSD just did for two weeks for corona virus that’s crazy. Stay safe y’all . Wash your hands and teach your kids to wash em too.
Not sure if anyone has experience with this but figured I’d ask. My 8yo daughter has been gaining weight over the last 2 years. Started during covid being home a lot and I guess eating more than normal. Schedules now are back to normal and she’s still gaining. I’ve gotten rid of all unhealthy food in the house but she will eat a lot of everything, always wants seconds and very hard to control. I don’t know what to do. Is it too early for a nutritionist?
MBA admit here and have to put down a deposit soon, having serious cold feet right now due to the covid situation and potentially having to start virtually. Would love any perspective on how it's been particularly socially and what your schools' outlook on the fall is
TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.
I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)
I’m in the market for a new 65-70+ inch tv. I see some models at the $1500+ range, and others around $750. Is there any real difference in quality between mid price TVs for someone who just watches hbo and doesn’t really obsess over pristine quality? Ps this is Covid related bc all I do anymore is work and watch tv.
I keep getting surprised each month by our firm financial reports indicating we are relatively on track with our pre-Covid budget, while also watching our overall billable hour numbers for the year continue to go down. So, it is really 2021, when our 2020 backlog AR won’t be rolling in, that I should really be planning to hunker down for?? Seems a bit like the disconnected stock market to economy.
For those wanting a very timely Bible plan, please consider this one. A group of men and I just completed it.
Gospel Driven Work In The COVID-19 Crisis
Is there any hope ( Romantic hope ) for a single mum? I look good for my age, I’m decent, earn a respectable amount. Yes I’m divorced, I have a lovely primary aged fun loving completely normal kid.

Any advice on how to find opportunities with only a year and half experience? COVID19 has made job hunting difficult and I am sick of IBM at this point.
Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise
How has COVID affected your workload, if at all? My group has a lot more work to do, and less resources with which to do it. But I don't worry about layoffs, so overall I'm happy to be where I am.
Had an interview and the place says they’re in person 2-3 days a week. It’s a small team but is it crazy I was really put off by that? I’ve been remote since the beginning of COVID and fully expected to be until I’m/the majority of people are vaccinated. Is anyone else going into the office?
Starting at McK (NA) next month and my training just moved from in-person to virtual - are you all seeing a decline in business travel because of covid concerns? I'd heard that a lot of teams had started to travel over the past few months

Additional Posts in Asians in Advertising
Any male Asians , feel that they have been passed up for a role because they are Asian ? Feels like the Asian man dating effect spills over into corporate culture . Or am I alone n over thinking it?
I've been seeing a lot of ADCOLOR posts on linkedin, and some of the people who are liking and reposting it are some of the same people who were blatantly racist and rude to me when I worked with them. I wish there was something I could say/do about it, but it's literally making my blood boil seeing them like posts about "uplifting" and "supporting" BIPOC, only because I know that once they get off their screens and they're the meanest people
Honestly don’t think advertising is good for Asians - I’ve met very few if any especially in strategy.
Sign up on diversecreatives.com - database for diverse talent, going live soon. Should be a good resource for recruiters to find PoC.
I’ve been searching for a bilingual Chinese writer for some time now to partner with. At this point it feels like finding a unicorn. Anyone here worked with a conceptual writer not a translator?
When your team director calls you out for liking crazy rich Asians, and says, “I didn’t call on you because you’re Asian....” in front of my entire team of 70 people.
Hi everyone! New to Fishbowl and working remotely in Portland area, if anyone wants to connect!
Happy Lunar New Year!
I just became co-chair of our the Asian group at our holding company. Need your help with ideas to help improve our program I was thinking mentorship, events and speakers focused on industry topics. If you had an Asian focused group in D&I, what would you be interested in?
Do you find being an Asian in this industry has had any pros /cons or no affect on your success?
Can we talk about the rise of hate crimes in AAPI community? My heart is heavy as we celebrate Lunar New Year this year.
