Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
Ok it’s been a while. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve seen over zoom while WFH.
I feel so undervalued at my job. I work my ass off and pick up other peoples slack, working above my level and still other people get higher praise. I don’t know what to do anymore. I want to give up.
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Need to put together a deck about ‘video treatment’ for shoot with photographer (need to use some of photos for short video - like zoom in and out). Never made this. Anyone tips or good examples? Thnx

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

every time zoom asks me how was my meeting experience, I always have a desire to click bad. Not because of zoom, just because of the meeting itself
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know

Watching the Golden Globes suffer “WTF is zoom?” and float zoom screens of actors in their homes next to each other....I feel for them. And also realize we have a weirdly useful skill these days.
When you send 2 enumerated, short questions over Slack and your colleague responds with a paragraph answering neither 🥲
On a call today: “Why didn’t you remind me of this?” Me (in my head): “I sent you an email, ping, Slack’d you, calendar invite, and was about to send fucking Hedwig the owl." Me (actually): ...

I started my career with my firm in my hometown (~60k population). After a few years I decided I wanted to go to a larger city (260k population) and thought my life world change as I was a driven single 26 year old. I got two promotions, but personally I don’t feel like I have any ties to the city and had better luck dating but didn’t find the one yet. Now since WFH started I’ve been mostly living in my hometown and am thinking about moving back. Cont…
