Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self... I love the fact our carbon footprint is much lower now, but again, believe this will be short lived. What do you think?
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
Why is it not ok to work remote from another country? I know people say tax issues but can someone elaborate? My friend at Facebook is able to work remote from his home country due to Covid with no issues.

Can we all admit now that covid is NOTHING like the flu? Like its July, why is this thing still going? And how are we recording 60k cases a day? At that rate the whole country will have caught it by years end. The flu goes away --- this stuff hasn't lost a step
Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/

Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
Anyone else realizing that family, friends, and general relationships are SO much more important than accomplishments as a result of covid/WFH?

Hi Deloitte USI Buddies, I was given job title in JD as Cloud security Engineer during interview but now after clearing I'm being given designation as Solution Advisor. Is it kind of any non tech role?What would be my work there generally? Do I have scope for learning there?

I want to give my notice in person to some of the partners I’m closest with. Problem is we are still WFH. What’s the protocol? Show up at their house unannounced? Ask them to meet at a Starbucks near their house? I want to do it in person, that’s not negotiable. The question is how when we are still WFH.
