I need to figure out how fat I'll be when work starts happening before buying more clothes.

Bought 5 suits in March. Returned them when I realized it’ll be a while.

It's called future investment. Prices down 30-40% now. Will shoot up when offices open. So buy now use then

Mostly athleisure at this point, but yes

Yes! And carry ons and new laptop bags/briefcases to go with the various carry ons and shoes. Gotta coordinate! Yes project is going to shit but look at this cordination! And no I don’t wear any of them. I Hangout in pajamas bottoms with semi professional looking tops all day in case of video calls.

It is a good time to buy with all the massive sales going on.

What office?

I do formal Fridays now, with suit and tie, my good watch, sometimes I even trim my quarantine hobo beard.

Polos and PJs only

Yes! Can’t be nude on calls

I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?

Starting to feel some separation anxiety/guilt as we are starting up daycare again next week for my 2yo. It was fine for him to go before and while I actually went to work but now my husband and I are perm. WFH. As much as I loved the chaos and having him around the last 3 months, it’s not forever sustainable. But now I feel guilty for working and not trying to make it work with all of us at home. Just venting as I am sad that this is time is ending.

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
