What have you been able to expense during WFH? Trying to consolidate a list to update our expense policy.

For example, someone I worked with left to join the analytics department of a major pro sports team.

I don’t understand how you people do it; on nights I barely get enough sleep I make so many mistakes, can’t remember facts, lose track of client work, and can’t bring out that attention to detail.
Finally updating my portfolio website I made when I was a student and putting professional work on it. Any tips? Going to password protect but still nervous about sharing client work. Am I better off just sharing PDFs with whoever I eventually want to see said work?
I’m super interested in types of people who project a certain image of wealth and then are secretly in debt, or “save” money by buying cheap and poorly made items therefore confirming that the excess spending we see is just for image.

Pros of Working in a Boys Club: The F Bathroom is now yours. Leave skin care. A hairbrush. Toothbrush. A cot. Buy a door lock. Move in. Sell your condo. Get fired then live rent-free in the vents.
Just noticed that Delta now has a new euphemism: behind scheduled. It's not delayed but just behind schedule....😂
Just had an interview for industry. Didn't have that warm fuzzy feeling after it like "I'm gonna get this job". UGH. I flubbed 1 question about a go to market strategy and it was downhill from there
PSA: Please be especially mindful of how you treat service workers right now. Be kind, be patient, and tip well if you can. With states opening back up, many don’t have the option of working from home, many establishments are understaffed, and these workers may be under financial pressure as well. Cheers.
