MBA admit here and have to put down a deposit soon, having serious cold feet right now due to the covid situation and potentially having to start virtually. Would love any perspective on how it's been particularly socially and what your schools' outlook on the fall is

Also just an incoming student but have talked to 1Ys at a couple schools and no one knows anything about the fall. I doubt schools will put out any info until mid-summer

Many schools are very optimistic in there being a on-campus aspect to classes. Yale SOM Dean, for example, put that figure at 80% I believe.

I think that while classes / recruiting could still be hybrid in the fall. If enough of your classmates are vaccinated by the fall, then there’s nothing preventing you from hanging out and going on trips together.

This is exactly what I've been thinking as well - hopefully the vaccination process will ramp up enough for that to be true!

So I’ve been on keto for 2 weeks, both weeks I felt horrible. I had migraines through the week 1, and stomach cramps through the week 2. I didn’t eat much, and all I lost through this 2 weeks - 1 lbs (started with 170). I’m in ketosis according to stick-test. And I’m working out 3 times a week.
Is it normal? Should I suffer for couple more weeks, or it’s just not for me?

Dear Men of India,

Please try NoFap or NoPMO or Brahmacharya if possible.

It is Must for teenagers, and young single man.

Loosing out that seed/semen for temporary pleasure is really bad, try to retain it. It will help you to maintain your testosterone levels, have good stamina, have strong mental strength too (increase in well being and intelligence).

If you don't go to gym, try working out at home, don't just sit infront of laptop - try to stand and work for few hours, burn few calories.
