As part of the return to school plan, some states are asking schools to come up with a COVID “death of a student” and “death of a teacher” letter templates. (Utah was specifically the example I saw.) Has your state asked schools to do this? I personally find it extremely unsettling.
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Coronavirus. Worried or not worried?
Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.
They're talking about a COVID vaccine being ready in 18 months. That is INSANELY fast. Let's hope it works
Is doing pushups every day multiple times a day healthy? What are some things I should watch out for or do to avoid building a dysfunctional body overtime. I am still exercising at home due to being high risk for covid.
I’ll just leave this here

Finding myself in a bit of a mental health crisis between covid, work and personal life. Does anyone have tips for the best way to go about finding a psychologist/psychiatrist? I moved a few years ago and stupidly never got around to finding a new doctor here. In Manhattan if anyone has personal recommendations. TIA.
Remember when COVID was a thing?
Anyone go through a period of just feeling low/blah/numb? I'm sure it's exacerbated by COVID restrictions. I hadn't experienced this feeling until the last few months of 2020. Any suggestions for shaking the "funk"? (I don't think I am capital D Depressed, although I have never felt this way before so am not entirely sure) Edit: In case it's relevant, recent blood work was normal except for slight vitamin D deficiency - taking a supplement at dr.'s suggestion. On oral BC but have been for years.
Anyone letting their hair grow out and donating to charity after COVID ends? I haven’t gotten a haircut since before the pandemic and don’t feel safe to get one until it is over. For people who have donated hair before any organizations you would recommend?
Is lush really natural and good brand ? Missing regular facials and pampering with covid . Lush products advertise so well however reading mixed reviews. Anyone love their products and any recommendations ?
Need advice for my dad who is 57 this year...he is blue collar, lost his job due to covid, and was down to his last $100k or less (living off savings). My grandmother just passed and he is inheriting about $800-900k. He is going to pay off his house ($200ish). He knows nothing about investing and I have my money in ETFs at vanguard. Considering he will be living off this money, interest, and social security, is it worth it to pay a firm to manage it? Or just doa vanguard account w mainly ETFs?
I am tired. From past year, since this Covid has entered our lives, we (I & SO) came back to our hometown. I never thought living with in-laws for such a long period could be so tiring, frustrating, depressing, etc. I don't know why but I just don't get very good vibes from my MIL. She's so cheeky and nosey. I really tried adjusting, not overthinking anything.. but somehow she brings out the worst in me. I've never disliked anyone to this extreme. I'm not keeping well because of all the stress
Took a job out of desperation at the peak of Covid but it was my first one out of school and it turns out it’s not a great one. Nothing good is being produced and nothing probably will. Any tips on how to get out one year later?
Anyone have Covid but had a negative pcr? Both my kids are positive and I have all the symptoms but my pcr was negative. Was it just too early?
How bad an idea is it to go to the gym during the Coronavirus pandemic? Don’t want to stop but it also seems like an ideal place to get the virus. Is wiping down machines before using good enough?
Have you tried fluorescent light covers in your classroom? I need help for migraines. If you liked them, what brand and color did you use?
I applied to several positions at amazon. I got an email from one to interview. Several others on my dashboard say “under consideration” but I did not get email from them to interview. I assume once one reaches out, others cannot reach out simultaneously. The one that did interview me told me they wanted me to interview for another position on that team. I went through the whole process. The 5 interview loop. Then got rejected. Can the others now reach out? Amazon
Duties for PRODUCER vs. DIRECTOR on photo/video shoots? As an account exec, I'm the producer. I was really lucky for a few years to have a director who helped with every aspect of the shoot - budgeting, scheduling, shot list, even manual labor! That director is no longer with our agency, and our new director is very hands-off. I'm trying to understand if I was just spoiled with our past director, or if our new director is lazy... or if it's a mixture of both. Thanks in advance!

Received the "I'm not feeling well today, so will be working from home today" email this morning. Seriously? I have more respect for my team member who told me on Friday she would be WFH home today.

Does anyone have regular flings? How do you keep it discreet? I love my partner but he’s not that into sex and it’s frankly not that great because he’s gained a lot of weight and doesn’t want to change his diet or exercise. I don’t want him to feel bad about his appearance. I love him regardless. But ever since I went on a vacation with friends and ended up having a hot make out session in a bathroom with some guy, I can’t stop thinking about it. I thought I feel guilty but I just want more.
Where to do a well-done weave in NYC please? I am natural and looking for a change. Thank you!
My current firm offered me a retention bonus, essentially it states I have to stay here for the next year or else I have to pay it back. Anyone have experience with this? I don’t know if I want stay but also feel like it’s awkward to turn it down... it’s a sizable bonus.
