Just FYI. One of my friend is on his way back from Hawaii vacation and he says Honolulu is totally crowded. Few roads in Kauai are closed due to floods. Airbnb’s, rental cars and hotels are too expensive right now.

Had a friend who just came back from Hawaii too. Said the restaurants/hotels/other touristy places r at 50% capacity while the crowd level is probably closer to 80%. So jam packed 😂

For HR folks, what do companies do when you resign during the holiday shutdown period? Do they let you go immediately?

During my PTO, my SM called me and asked me to start plugging myself in and he mentioned that I don't want to be left behind. He asked me to set up a call during my PTO to "catch up" with the rest of the team. I cannot wait to get out of this company as this is kinda touching my bottom line.

I got an offer that I’m really excited about and I would start in a little over a month. I really wanted to put in two weeks and have my last day be the same day that my bonus is paid out. I’m desperate to get time off before this new job and they already offered a great signing bonus. Should I put in the two weeks and hope for the best or is it basically impossible that they would still give me the bonus? If I know they aren’t giving me the bonus then I would be ready to just leave immediately.

Other than higher pay (I didn’t become a lawyer to get rich 🤣) what is the benefit of working for BigLaw, or private practice in general? As a government lawyer, I make 6 figures, have excellent benefits, no billable hours requirements, more time off than I know what to do with (including mental health days), a pension, a 401(K), option to chose whether to WFH or not, no weekend work, no working before 8am or after 5pm. It seems like so many lawyers in private practice are unhappy.

So a (non-Asian) friend asked me (also non-Asian) to order Chinese or Korean food with her to celebrate Lunar New Year. I declined, saying that it seems weird to ask a Chinese employee to serve *me* on *their* holiday. To be transparent, I do have a thing about holidays and labor, trying to avoid shopping and accessing services on holidays, so this might be part of that feeling I have, but I also feel my whiteness on this one. Curious on others' thoughts on this... for next year.

So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
