Alright maybe tone deaf, but I’m finding it hard to use my points to escape for a couple days. Anyone else finding it hard to use points? I’m talking mid-week “Bonvoy”...
Prob been asked but how do you best use Bonvoy points. Debating 60k/night in Iceland or saving up for 85k/night Ritz in Caymans (or something like that). Generally what level to spend the points?
Anyone familiar with American Cybersystems Inc. (ACS)? Acsicorp.com is the site. Interested to hear any Data points....They reached out to me but I've never heard of them.
Just used points to book first class tickets to Hawaii for my boo and I next month! Feels so good to finally fly somewhere I want to go without paying for it!
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
I have zero motivation to work out at home (won’t be back to the gym anytime soon where I live) but I know it’s necessary for both my physical and mental health. Any suggestions for motivation and maybe some great at home workouts I could try?? Getting desperate over here!
The insurance company I work for outsourced a huge majority of my work to a third party, ontellus 🤮. I am not longer able to bill for NPNP, SDT and CNOS. I received 5 separate NPNPs from ontellus that either had the incorrect case style, signature block or date. I also sent out an email today after the 5th incorrect NPNP that started with “I am honestly starting to feel like I am on the show Punk’d and waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop into my office” continued in comments..
Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma was asked how he’d meet his future capital needs.

Sometimes I feel like my boss takes "coaching" a little too far. He's all about "breaking me down" in order to "build me up". He's told me things like my voice is too boring when I present, or that I didn't do enough in my last role, suggesting that I wouldn't be in his team if it weren't for him in team meetings. Yesterday he asked me to call someone (on a non-urgent topic) who was on DND, and when I told them I'd call them later, he mimicked me. Am I being too sensitive?
