Anyone else going through a quarter life crisis? Like, feeling the intense need to pack up everything, go travel, and see where life takes them?
Considering moving back to India. This Coronavirus situation has broken me, have no family here and I miss them all so much. Feel so alone here. Any one else in same boat?
Has anyone taken time off work because of their mental health? Did it help? Feel like I am at a breaking point but worried if I do it once I’ll end up doing it for the rest of my career
Things that happened during covid
Has anyone had any luck getting emgality covered by insurance? (Migraine shot) if so, what insurance company do you have?
28 weeks pregnant and this is my last trip. Went to the chiropractor this morning to get adjusted, then promptly threw out my back lifting my bag to go through security. It's not even heavy since it's only a 2 day trip.
Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.
Anyone know where can I get a take home COVID test? Need to buy one for a wedding I’m going out of state.
Any one 18+ heathy successfully got COVID vaccines? So frustrating in the whole pop up vaccine clinic for 18+ in Toronto
Used to work in the office, but WFH since March due to covid. How would you approach asking to move out of state and keep your job as permanently remote?
Going Roatán like I forgot how to travel.
• Alarm goes off at 5:15, wake up at 7:45
• Forgot headphones
• Forgot charger
• Checking bag and it’s 100% self serve (but I don’t work here)
• Cant check laptop because of battery and it won’t fit it scuba gear bag… that’s why I have 2 hands (coffee and random laptop)
• Negative Covid test, check, but it’s 20 min outside the 72 hour window based on who knows what time they chose and didn’t mention (don’t worry, they’ll just give me another one haha) 😅
So, I started watching “Limitless” with Chris Hemsworth. Apparently, he found out he carries both genes for dementia which puts him at a higher risk. So the series is about him changing things in his life for longevity. The third episode is about fasting and he fasts for 4 days until the day he has to hunt for his food. Does anyone in healthcare have thoughts on this type of fasting? I know it is done in some cultures and religions, but to what extent?
Coronavirus leads to less travel (yay) which leads to your clients suffering (boo) which leads to a recession (super boo) which leads to consulting firm layoffs (also super boo) which lead to....
I'm freelance & just turned 26, do i begrudgingly tie myself down for bennies or do I stay wild & eat the cost of health insurance?

Hi all, I’ve been taking 15mg XR in the morning and 15mg IR as needed in the afternoon for about 2 years now and it’s helped a lot, however, when I take time off I just feel so lethargic. I’ve read about people taking Wellbutrin as well. Anyone have experiences with this? I meditate and exercise as well, but I just lack energy and almost feel like the same things don’t make me happy when I’m not on my medication.
Are people at Boston Consulting Group in London back to travel post-COVID? What is the norm e.g. frequency, average nights away? Is it easy to carve out a career with limited travel outside PE DD?
Hey all. Seeing a lot of posts here of people sharing their "books". As a marketing strategist looking for a new opportunity, what is essential to include in a book? My work isn't exactly flashy like a designer's might be. Should I put some of my case studies together? Do you all host your books online? Any tool recommendations for creating these?
For those who live in the suburbs, do you go out of your way to establish positive relationships with the police?

Stop shaming people for leaving on time. Working overtime every nite benefits no one if you’re exhausted. It’s not a badge of honor either. Work on your time management skills.

I am not sure how, but I have never had to present a case study for an interview. I have the prompts but not sure how granular to get. How in depth with companies get when your knowledge is external and based on a few weeks of shopping around? Any advice?
Received an offer from a UMM sector focused fund, but I don't particularly like the sector enough to stay in it for long. How difficult is to change industry in PE, say after 6 YoE?
Advice for Of Counsel roles? I am of counsel at a firm where I can set my own rate and keep a percentage of collections, which varies slightly depending on whether the client is one I generated or not. I’m finding that a lot of my work is for firm clients where the lawyer negotiated a flat fee (and the hours worked are less, due to efficiency etc). What is the right way for me to be compensated in this scenario?
Anyone tried to buy a home that appraised for less than the purchase price? How did you manage this? Did you renegotiate the purchase price or make up the difference or walk away?

We bought a 3 bedroom house two years ago. At the time, our youngest of two kids was still in a crib, so we put him in the smaller of the two rooms, which is half the size of the oldest’s bedroom. Two months ago, we thought to move them into the big room and got them each a queen bed. It is not going well-for two months we’ve had to police bedtime for an hour and inevitably move someone to the smaller room. Not sure what to do- it’s driving us crazy but one room is so small it seems really unfai
Hi fellow desi folks! I’m getting married next month and both my SO and I have our own H1bs. What are the implications of not declaring our marriage to our respective employers if we have no dependency on each other? I work at an audit firm so very concerned about independence atm. We have no issues in doing it, just figuring out what’s the easier way to navigate this.
@amazon Just got off first round interview for tech senior product manager opportunity at Amazon. My interviewer, a principal product manager didn’t ask one question with “tell me about a time when”. The questions were all over the place and I honestly couldn’t tie them back to LPs because of how they were worded. And he finished with asking for a new feature for Alexa?? What in the world just happened here?!
Managers and above—do you actually get to be managers at your firm? Or do staffing issues have you playing all levels of the field?
Working with a few firms (V25-50) on a potential lateral to income partner. Any thoughts on salary range? Am I safe to assume it is (perhaps significantly) higher than a 2013 associate since I am quite a bit older? It’s hard to gauge a target range to negotiate.

New to freelancing, at the same gig since mid-June. It started as a 3-week gig, but extended multiple times. Since Oct, I’ve gotten persistent emails to complete some corporate training course. I assumed as a freelancer I was exempt. After replying “corporate training isn’t in my contract,” I got a personal email stating that I’m not exempt. The last day of my contract is in 2 weeks and I’m not planning on renewing, even if they offer. Are freelancers often required to do training?
I just scored a working interview (they are for 2 separate days due to court). I have never done a working interview before. How do I prepare??? It is in a separate field of law (matrimonial/family) than what I practice. I am super excited but still so nervous.

I need some ideas for my last hour class. I teach reading only and I have this class first hour for reading and then last hour again for “communication skills”. I plan on some days doing prodigy, maybe passion projects, and maybe reading groups. This class has a lot of sped kids. By the time last hour comes, they are all over the place. I need things to keep them from going crazy, but want it to be purposeful also. Any suggestion?
