Confessions

It’s a big week for my client but I’m very much sick after a long holiday break. Should I feel guilty for working from home? Personally I’d be pissed if someone came in sneezing and coughing.

Stay home and recover. A martyr is unproductive and gets the rest of us sick. Then we hate you.

Stay home. And be honest that it pains you to not be in the office but no one needs to get whatever the F you have.

My dad who lives in Asia just announced that he had a medical issue. I’m starting to enter the age where I’m going to take care of him financially. It’s a $2,000 hospital bill which in the US is nothing compared to what it represents there (which he can’t afford). He’s going to be fine! Just wanted to share with this group as many of you can understand what it feels like to support your parents when they’re old, not the other way around. I feel so blessed I can help him. 🙏🏽

Would appreciate any help. I'm alone and need to cook for a sick family. I work ridiculously long hours so I'll have to wake up at 6 to cook. I'm hopeless in the kitchen. Can anyone point me to some quick recipes that don't take too much time? Is getting a crock pot worth it? Thank you in advance.

Hey all! Currently live in DC and thinking about moving to either: Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, or stay in DC. Where would you move/live considering: cost of living, housing prices, and job market. I feel like LA has a rough job market in terms of competitiveness of applications compared to DC/Austin but benefits elsewhere. Feel free to share anything else I should know! Thanks!
