First yr in NYC corporate group. Trying to schedule private lessons either at 8-9:30 pm on a weekday or around lunchtime on Saturdays. Is Saturday an obvious choice? Is it okay to respond to emails after 1.5~2 hr on weekends (obviously not when we’re signing/closing)
Is anybody else struggling to plan during school hours? It’s my first year teaching all subjects and I CANNOT for the life of me get caught up. I feel like I’m constantly working to try and catch up.

Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?
HI LADIES! I realize we are going through tough times but I wanted to quickly remind you all of how blessed we are. Blessed to see another day ✨ We won’t get this day back so make it count. Take it all in and remember that your current situation is not your final destination. And if you are going through an especially tough time, rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will. You will make it past this. 💖 Have an amazing rest of your day ladies 😊♥️
When you do work for school (lesson planning and/or grading), do you keep the TV or music on in the background? I like to, but it's also distracting and makes me way less efficient.
Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”

I left my former employer in Q4 2019 but didn’t rollover my Roth 401k prior to the crash, so I’ve left it there this whole time and it’s rebuilt nicely (not back to where it was, but closer)...cont
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.

Looking for some advice on job search. I’m planning to exit into Corp Strat in 2021. How might I go about finding companies with good WLB? Is it industry specific (e.g., tech, FI, etc.)? Or will I need to pound the pavement, access my network, and get individual answers by company? Any other tips?
