So the county I live in and the surrounding 3 counties have a total of 120 deaths from COVID. Yet we are still on full lockdown. I really don’t think a blanket lockdown is the best method.

How are parents keeping 5-6 yr old kids entertained. My kid is watching tv for 2-3 hrs each day and not at all participating in study. Kiddo is bored talking with classmates and friends, building legos and toys. Even school opens i doubt this age group really have patience to be on zoom calls. Looking for ways to keep kid busy other than digital media.
Rolex Sub, Sea-dweller or Deep Sea? Haven’t tried the latter two in metal and concerned that 43mm and 44mm maybe too big for my wrist (7 inches). But love the last two more. Can I wear it at work?

Had a 3rd round interview with PwC (Partner) and they said they would either want to have another interview with a team member or will “move forward with next steps”. This was last week and recruiter hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Manager position. What does this mean? Bad news? Trying to not be disappointed yet 😭
Interviewed by a FP&A director for a SFA position and they asked me my salary expectations. I couldn’t dodge the question so i gave a range between 110-115k (where i’m currently at as S3 in big4 advisory). They said highest base for the position is around 105k and total comp (base+annual bonus) would likely be 110k. The role focuses on top-line P&L and is pure FP&A (no JE/acctg responsibilities) and good WLB, so i think it’s a good opportunity. If they do give an offer, should i still negotiate?
I’m a 28F who is barely getting into investing. It’s frustrating that it took this long but as a first gen college grad, my parents didn’t know anything about this stuff until very recently, so naturally I was never taught about it. It’s crazy to see people younger than me with all this knowledge on saving and investing. How did you learn so much at such a young age? Any advice for someone like me who is starting out so late in the game?
Does Alixpartners hire experienced hires without MBA at the VP level? (ie someone with ~4-5 years at Big 4 MC). I see conflicting comments around only hiring MBAs.

Is the Amex Blue Cash Everyday card worth picking up specifically for a PS5 purchase? It’s currently offering 20% back on purchase through Amazon for 6 months (up to $1000) and it also offers a $100 bonus after $100 spending in 6 months. I’m thinking pick up a PS5 on Amazon and grab some other things to get to $1k spend and that’s $300 bonus cash. Only issue is not sure that I see myself using the card afterwards much. Worth picking up?
