I just graduated college in May and my start date for my company has been pushed by 3 months by my employer due to COVID-19. I had previously interned with this company the summer before and received enough wages to qualify for unemployment benefits. Should I apply for unemployment during the period of time in which I should have been working, but am not anymore? Would this reflect poorly on me to my employer if I apply and get rejected or accepted for it? I don’t want to lose my job.
Confession, the covid-19 pandemic has been nothing but fantastic for me. Still working from home, some additional perks from work, saved a ton of money not being able to do anything, as an introvert I got to just chill at home without the pressure of going out, got to bond with my family, I don't know anybody personally who died or got very sick either.
Unconventional question- did anyone tap their production knowledge for a wedding photographer? Between cheesy pictures, insane prices, and no availabilities due to covid’s effect on the wedding industry, I am having a hard time finding someone even over a year away. Any suggestions for the ny metro area appreciated!
Are any of you being treated differently by friends and family because you’re taking care of positive and PUI Covid patients? I almost feel like it’s a crime bring an RN right now. No one will come near me. All my family that lives out of state cancelled my summer vacation trips to come see them. The family that lives close by me won’t let me In their houses. I’m feeling so alone and very isolated.
Summer is usually my JAM, but it just doesn't feel the same this year because of covid. anyone else? feeling depressed.
This is Joe Biden's America. "This used to be a beautiful, safe city — I don’t even recognize it. Nothing’s open, nothing’s the same,” said a passerby and former Portland resident named Jennifer, who added that it upsets her to see businesses boarded up for protection against violent protesters who emerge at night." https://www.koin.com/news/health/coronavirus/nothings-the-same-downtown-portland-copes-with-closures/
It seems like each county/school district is responding to covid differently and the amount of pressure to return to normal varies. What's going on in your county?

Mask mandate. Personally, I will keep wearing my mask on transit. I lost too many family members to covid (including my dad) so would be crazy for me not to wear one. Just curious to see how y'all are feeling about it. On twitter i've seen most people rejoicing at it, calling people who still want to wear their masks not so pleasant names, as well as a lot of folks making it political. I'm honestly perplexed as to how people can be so selfish and not think about others who are now at risk bc
I took my daughter to the hospital thinking she had complications from previous covid infection. A few tests later and she’s admitted with masses in her lymph nodes, biopsy scheduled for today. She’s only 19. I’m a mess. I told my work that I’m taking off for now, I have no idea when I will feel like working. In a matter of hours I lost all interest in work - just completely gone. I’ve had coworkers who’ve had cancer and a spouses with cancer, and they continue to work. I just cannot imagine.
Best/most useful COVID19 purchase?
How much do you spend on groceries per month and for how many people? Since COVID it’s been around $500 for just me 😬
I’m going to miss a close friend’s wedding as I tested positive for covid. Horrible timing. I would like to send her something nice because I feel bad for missing out on her big day. Any gift ideas? Like to keep it to $100-150
Male here in NYC. Any female interested in connecting and chatting, possibly meeting? For the record, I managed to get tested for COVID, and do not have it. Understand and appreciate the concern.
I’m all for the whole movement and COVID-19 climate, but I’m tired of my social media being mainly about that. I wanna see bikini pics damnit
How much you are saving? With covid, my savings after tax reached 35pct of my income (was 25-30). Wanna save 50% in 3 or 4 years.
is anyone worried about job security/taking a new job with the covid cases rising? how are you all preparing for it?
https://apps.texastribune.org/features/2020/texas-coronavirus-cases-map/ Starting to understand what New Yorkers must have felt 3 months ago. Situation here in Texas is getting worse by the day. Deaths are finally spiking as deaths today alone is triple the average daily deaths in May. And it's still trending higher.
This guy I never met messaged me on instagram. He’s cute so I gave him my number when he asked but I haven’t dated in a year and just texting someone with romantic intent feels WEIRD. Is it me or covid

US citizen here, and I would like to move to Europe for a couple of years. What are some big named companies (other than big 4 & MBB) that will sponsor my working visa? I would also like to move early next year. Is that unrealistic though due to COVID? TIA 😊

Anyone drive uber on the side? Thoughts?
