My firm is giving out surprise mid year bonuses to associates hitting the prorated annual bonus cutoff. I had a major injury for which I worked through treatments for about 3 months Jan-March. I didn’t take any time off, but I did set hard boundaries to make it to PT and medical appointments and not overwhelm myself. I’m off by 50+ hours to the target to receive bonus. Do I say something about being ineligible for the bonus or let it slide since it’s a big gap?

I would say something. You don't get if you don't ask.

50 hours is not a big gap. I would ask/raise the issue proactively.

I’d say something. The firm may not be willing to work with you retroactively, but you won’t know unless you ask. Did anybody know about your injury/treatment? If so, that could definitely help! I also agree that 50 hours is not a big gap, especially if you were in PT/at appointments multiple times a week. Having gone through it myself after a car accident, that’s incredibly tough. Kudos to you for prioritizing your health while still keeping up with work like that!! It’s not easy! Hope you’re feeling better now.

One of the most emotionally deflating aspects of COVID has been that I don't have anything to look forward to. Vacations, outings with friends, family get-togethers, etc. I am tempted to book a trip to one of my normal vacation spots 🌺 for May 202 since the flights are so ridiculously cheap that even if I cancelled I wouldn't care but it puts a carrot on the calendar for me. Anybody else doing the same? Anybody betting on dates we can safely vacation and booking in advance now?

I am at a point in my job search (2+ years, laid off 5 months before COVID) where I’m really starting to think the career I have chosen doesn’t want me back. I worked in HR previously, and I have no idea where or how to start figuring out a new career path. I’m stable money-wise for now. But with the student loan repayments coming active again soon, the money situation will get tighter.Any advice on changing careers after 40? Much appreciated!
