This is so unbelievably sad hearing it’s one of our own who was battling the virus both for pts and for herself. For the sake of all of us we should recognize the impact this virus is having on our mental health as well. It made me think about about how we need to support one another and talk things out during this tough time. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/27/nyregion/new-york-city-doctor-suicide-coronavirus.html

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
Should you leave a somewhat stable (not so much with Covid and layoff talks) job for an ~8% pay increase at another agency rightnow? Who knows what the other place could be as well.

Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
Should I be putting any money into my loans at this point? I havnt had to pay them yet with covid. What is everyone doing? Once payments resume again is anyone in a rush to pay them off?
Are any young healthy people considering going out and getting COVID on purpose? Most antibody studies are showing the disease is far more prevalent than we realized and therefore a much lower...
I really do not understand my company's attendance policy. No sick or personal time and each time you have unscheduled PTO it's considered an occurence. Its super restrictive and during a pandemic you risk people coming to work sick spreading what could potentially be Covid. I just don't get it. I understand they are running a business but it just shows you really don't care about your employees at all but yet you want them to care about this company and the work being done here.

Trump just aired what is essentially a campaign ad, attacking the press and praising his response, in the middle of the coronavirus briefing. He forced the country to watch this live.
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

How can I politely ask about work/life balance in an interview? I’m interviewing for a lateral move tomorrow for a job that I’m beyond qualified for (the internal recruiter is concerned that they won’t be able to afford me). The reason I am considering a lateral move is because I desperately need balance back especially during the pandemic. How can I phrase a question when interviewing that will give me an honest answer?
