Not sure how much longer I can stay cooped up in my house. Been one of the people abiding by social distancing / quarantine, and with the spike (due to more testing, people not social distancing, whatever) its scary to think that we could still be doing this next year. Anybody else in the same boat? How are you dealing with the repetitiveness of WFH?

Although people aren’t expressing it, nearly everyone is feeling this way. The days blend together, I feel like I’m learning significantly less WFH, and working way more hours. It’s hard but you have to distract yourself with TV and stay positive!! I feel like we will get clarity how much longer we’ll have this life after Labor Day

I am hoping that at some point people will begin realizing that virus isn't going away any time soon and start learning how to live their lives with it - as opposed to hiding from it and convincing themselves it's all just so very temporary. Humans need shared physical spaces and social interaction - there is no getting around it. We'll need to adjust.

Not trying to kill anyone, dude, just trying to LIVE my life WHILE I am still alive. Living as if you are already dead while being alive is no picnic. I mean, most people are still alive, but their lives get worse and worse every day.

I'm with you. When this all started out I had no concerns, thought I could thrive while wfh, spending more time with my SO etc. Never thought I would actually end up hating it this much. I have never been more mentally unwell in my adult life. I'm really upset at how the situation is being handled in the US.

I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired

Does anyone else feel like WFH has made higher ups notice you more? I feel like when we were in the office I was always judged by my looks, how young I was, my ability to make small talk, etc., but not the content or quality of my work. Now that the only thing they have to judge me on is my work, it seems like everyone wants to work for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful but also TERRIFIED to go back in the office and watch all that momentum go down the drain.

Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark).

I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.

I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
