Flying home from a 5 day tropical vacation. It’s the first time I didn’t work while on vacation since 1998. That includes faxing copy from my honeymoon, flying home early to work on a pitch, writing in the hotel room bathroom while my family slept, staying in the room while my family went to Disneyland, etc. This time, I never read an email, answered a text, I deleted slack from my phone before I left. It’s been great. Not trying to trigger struggle porn just saying boundaries are 😌

Working with a new manager who is a micro manager and also tends to ramble on about different things when asked fairly basic questions.

If you were to create the perfect travel app, what features would it include? Where could TripIt improve?
I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.
I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run

I'm sorry to hear the news about layoffs. If you haven't been affected, I hope it stays that way. Otherwise, good luck on your exit process and job hunt fellas. It's not an easy job.
