Morning 🐟 Has anyone here gone on an all inclusive vacation using Costco Vacations? Would love to know how it went for you? Thinking of going to Cabo over the holidays in December.
Took some PTO on a Monday so I wouldn't have to deal with the fact that it's Monday and everyone wanting something at 8am.
made a mistake, left my job for another and it didn’t pan out. took the first offer that came my way to make ends meet but after a week i know i will hate this place bc of the expected time commitments (24/7 on call, 15 min response to every email) i need mental and career advice, i feel like im spiraling over my career future, i don’t know how i will ever be able to apply anywhere with a crazy resume now. id love to take time off but can’t afford
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
