I’ve got the option to relocate to one of the following cities post-covid. NYC, D.C, Nashville, ATL, or Austin. Where would you go and why?
Just venting: For the last 3 months I've been really focused on my cardiovascular health, and doing great. Resting heart rate was the lowest itd been in two years, and my blood pressure was trending in the right direction. Now I have Covid and everything has shot back up. I hate seeing that progress disappear so quickly 😭
The one time is overly excited for a trip and what? My COVID test doesn’t come back on time 😭
Ever had an attorney randomly pull food that they somehow squished in their shoe during long court days. One day, it was taking forever in federal court due to the COVID backlog. An attorney was sitting at a table across from where I was sitting. Kept noticing him reaching down like he was scratching his foot then would bring his hand to his mouth. Very strange. Court concluded and I saw him by his car taking off his shoe and pulling a squished baggy with half a sandwich out of it.

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?
Has anybody changed locations from SF or NY to a Lower COL city like Chicago during COVID (specifically in tech) and had their salary adjusted down? If so, how much was the decrease?
