Thank you, covid-19.
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
Is Qatar airways a good option for parents coming from India in June? Are there any covid restrictions other than presenting a negative report? Their trip would be from New Delhi to Seattle if it matters
Hi all, I was a civil Engineer earlier and was laid off facing the Covid brunt and have upgraded to Data Science now, actively looking for a job to support my family. So if anyone can help or give leads it would be grateful to help support my family. Please please 🙏🏼

Wife and I are mid-30s. We’ve struggled long to have a kid, and finally we are considering a IVF. I’ve been seriously considering adopting a baby, but not sure how she’ll react; struggling to get this across and not upset her at the same time
If I have a bunch of money sitting in stocks (no options)...do I sell now? Wait & hope market goes up if/when COVID panic is over? 😬😬😬

Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Just found out we’re having a third kid - any advice?? We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.
I’m back to having no billable work again. My department almost completely dried up when covid started, so I’ve been relying on work from other busy departments at my firm to keep me busy since March. I feel like I start a new job every couple of weeks and am constantly begging for work. I’m just exhausted. Can anyone else relate?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Has anyone else had their client send all employees and consultants home for work to avoid coronavirus? Mine did today, Wednesday through Friday! Crazy!
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
How accurate is the calculated due date? In my third trimester with due date a week away from my birthday 😊. Would there be chance my baby and I can share same birthdate?!!

QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.

With MBA starting salaries/bonuses so high, why don’t more people leave public accounting to go that route? I’m a new manager in a low to mid COL area making $68k. I figured out that the cost of the MBA program plus foregone salary for 2 years would be $211k. I’d think I could more than make up for that. I wonder about their hours and flexibility compared to ours though.
