No idea why people in NYC, LA, SF etc choose Starbucks as their go-to coffeeshop. So many better choices for the same price!!

Convenience. When I have time I go to better places but when I don't it's good enough.

Convenience. I prefer the other shops, but there's a Starbucks next to my office so that often wins.

Convenience. And the other places are 2x the price which can add up

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

Hey Ad People!! Jr Copywriter here! Tomorrow I have a interview with one of my dream agencies for an internship opportunity but I know my book isn’t good enough to land me the job. How does a candidate that may not have the best book stand out?? Backstory: I have been working freelance at an agency as a Jr. Copywriter which is why I haven’t been making new work. Did not attend portfolio school.

I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.

Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.

All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
