Never been skiing before...where do you put your stuff (wallet, phone, etc)? Does everyone typically carry all of their things in their pockets or is it common to wear a backpack?
Looking for ideas for trivia questions about the team (ex: no one on our team is from this office)... any ideas would be greatly appreciated! ☺️
Do you travel between schools, or is your district on one campus? Does your employer reimburse you for travel expenses?
How do you ladies maintain a proper meal schedule?

Anyone use Monday.com for recruiting or onboarding? Would love to hear about some best practices!
What’s for dinner tonight? I’m cooking up a soup
What do you tell strangers you do for a living when you don't want to explain what investment banking is?
Trying to spend the next three days case prepping as much as possible. If anyone is on the same boat — let me know! I can start a group chat if there’s interest. Thanks
I like making banner ads. There I said it. Sometimes I need a break from the brain draining highly conceptual work and want to work on auto pilot.
My spouse and I were out for lunch today with my infant. Random man also having lunch at the restaurant comes up and asks to hold my baby. I said no, he repeats the request a couple of times and I still say no. He then says ‘are you sure? I’m a police’ (assuming to reassure us that he’s safe’), still said no. He waits for a few seconds and went back to his table, kept looking over. I am super weirded out by this. We’re foreigners. Is this a thing in the US?!
Anyone from cuelogic BU in lti?
I earned my DNP and have been trying to land an online teaching job. I don’t have any online teaching experience, so I have been unsuccessful. Anyone teach online willing to share their hours/pay? Recommendations for hire?
I started my firm recently (immigration) and am a true solo. I have experience in a few very specific case types and do lots of research, but don't have enough experience to easily strategize for each consult. I know this will come in time as I do more types of cases and have a background of knowledge to pull from, but I need to grow my business too. I think hiring a very capable paralegal would be the best option, but I'm paying myself 1k a week. I doubt I'd be able to pay an employee. Ideas?
Moving to dc from nyc. Is there a place like sheep meadow in Central Park to picnic, drink, and chill?
Any transactional associates feel like they have a say in the types of deals they take on? Cannot stand a certain type of deal but have experience doing it. Would love to move away from it. Just not sure how to turn it down when partners ask me to work on them
Are any of the ELA teachers here also directing school plays, either by choice or by obligation?
I happily directed three plays a year for all 28 years of my career, but I know some teachers get "stuck" with doing the plays. I would love to be a resource, particularly for those in the second situation.
What do you think about Deloitte’s immigration & GG? My experience has been horrible. Came across a post from another thread here that showed 60% H1B denial rate in FY2019. Reflects poorly!

Looking for recommendations for camera lenses. I have a Canon 5D Mark III and am looking for a telephoto lens. I had decided on the 70-300mm F4/5.6L for a few reasons (size, price, etc) but now that I’m ready to buy I can’t find it anywhere. Anyone know if there’s a reason for this (is it old and being replaced) and/or something comparable to look into instead?
