FB just ate the rest of my post. Not going to write the whole thing again, but m2 I'm not seeing any actual policy to back to what you said. Do you have links to it? The link above seems to say they don't care and are leaving it to airlines. WebEx in listen only mode isn't technically any different from Pandora so I don't think they could or would ban one and not the other.

Haha fair enough, I would have preferred not to have to take the call either (I usually sleep through my flights), but I’m happy that my flight schedules will be less constrained by my ability to appear online, at least!

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

Struggling heavily with mental health amid the crisis, due to loneliness and the gradual realization that we're really in this for the long haul and things likely aren't going back to normal for a long time. Zoom calls help a little but not that much and the constant barrage of people talking about 'the new normal' only makes it worse. Any tips/advice?

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?

I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.
