Is it worth it to move to nyc right now? I’ve been wanting to since before COVID and have been staying with my parents rent free just waiting for the right time to move there

I wouldn’t pick any other city during this time. You can literally walk to Central Park. Riverside etc. It’s good to see people around. But if I had the choice, I would have maximised spending time with parents.

If’s always worth moving to NYC, but you’ll definitely get a solid deal on rent now...

.... Why? U can't enjoy any parts of nyc during covid. No dining, no bars, no clubs, it's crowded and a lot of ppl have left. The city is still boarded up somewhat. It's not the best of nyc right now.

I’m in New York in Williamsburg and it’s fine just like everywhere else we adjusted. I’m surrounded by amazing restaurants that have turned themselves inside out with creative outdoor dining, folks are out and about shopping, outdoor workouts are also a thing I’ve enjoyed seeing. You could definitely take advantage of the rent prices right now. In all honesty I moved out of the burbs at 18 for college and haven’t looked back so I may be biased but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now (other than a beach 🏖 or some tropical place lol). All in all I’d say go for it!

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.

Or do I need to stick it out here?

If so, how should I go about approaching my boss about compensation? Note: no one received a salary increase/annual bonus due to covid to my knowledge.

I found a new job (huzzah!) and turned in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. But I started feeling crummy last night and went to the doctor for a COVID test today. Lab results already came back positive. So now I feel super guilty about basically calling in sick to my last two weeks of work...should I try and push out my start date to help out current employer? Feel like current supervisor is going to throw a hissy fit.
