Amazing info graphic about COVID from Nat Geo.
Need to leave for Canada in roughly a month because of US visa expiry but worried about potential travel restrictions in Canada given the bad covid situation. Are there any provinces that are not as hard hit by covid? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
I woke up feeling so angry this morning. This guy I was seeing for like 6-7months now told me yday night that he isn't sure if his family will be appreciative of my past. I got divorced from my first husband. The dating guy knew this since day 1 and still made all the efforts to impress me. I really liked him genuinely.
Now he has quit the present job and moving on to a new location and new job. My feeling says that he just used me for this Covid time. I feel so angry and stupid about myself.
Anyone fly Delta recently to enter the US from abroad? How smooth was the process of showing the negative covid test result & boarding?
Thoughts on delaying KG vs risking repeating it? My son (4, Aug bday) has never been in school but is so ready. Because of covid he never had preschool and we were horrible about teaching him stuff. I’m afraid he will struggle bc most kids have been to preschool or daycare. Thoughts? Also worst case - is it a bug deal if he has to repeat KG (versus me holding him back and putting him in Montessori).
Anyone travel and work from different cities during COVID? Thinking about heading out from the east coast and making our way to the west coast, stopping along the way in bi-weekly/monthly increments until we have to go back into the office.
Last I heard the COVID protocols held by the unions are still standing, indefinitely.
Has anyone heard differently?
So tired of wearing a mask on my brutally hot outdoor shoots.
Took advantage of my self-isolation to fully marie-kondo my apartment. Now I need to take a giant pile of stuff to Goodwill. I guess it will sit in my closet until this coronavirus situation clears up
Sweden didn’t shut down the country and their strategy may have worked. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-04-19/sweden-says-controversial-covid-19-strategy-is-proving-effective
Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
Any advice for recent/upcoming grads wanting to break into the industry but not able to find opportunities due to COVID? Thanks!
Am I a jerk? Haven’t seen my parents in over 1.5 years due to covid. We FaceTime often but they live in the NW and I live in TX. We are all vaccinated but they are both in the at risk population. From what I’ve heard from friends back home, things are shutting down again due to the variant. I’m concerned about traveling & potentially giving my parents something that will make them sick, as well as getting stuck there if things closed down. I know they will be disappointed if I cancel - wwyd?
My job had a confrimed Covid case. We're 12 employees and all have close contact with each other in a poorly ventilated office. 4 employees didn't even leave yesterday when the test was confirmed. Most people went back today, no one wore masks. I decided to quit Monday and I am breathing easier than I have in months

Is it naïve of me to not be intimidated whatsoever by job titles, ie. Executive or otherwise?? I feel that, at the end of the day, we all go home to our families, our children, our issues, our joys, and that we are all mortal, living human beings on the same playing field. I’m not scared or intimidated, and view those who try to coerce as feeling insecure or lacking within themselves.

I’m addicted to Fishbowl 😫
I cannot for the life of me keep my room clean.
On the outside I appear polished, educated, sexy, but when work picks up I struggle with prioritizing my space. It just goes into disaster mode, I worry about people on zoom seeing a pile of clothes in the background and I push it aside. It brings me so much shame to come home to a wreck. I have ADHD and once I forget to put a few things away, it goes sideways. Any tips?
