Husband just made partner. I didn’t know when exactly the partnership announcement was coming so didn’t get my ducks in a row for a gift. Any ideas? One idea I was mulling over was getting him golf lessons with a instructor he was thinking of linking up with and a gift card to get some clubs (he’s a lefty and usually rents but can’t bc covid) until he can commit to a set and get fitted once he’s better.
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/
So I’m 25 and been working for the same HR Technology company for almost 4 years now. I’ve had about 4 promotions. It’s one of the best places to work but I’m realizing since covid motivation has been hard for me. Ive blown my number out each year I’ve been here (160%) However, I feel like with my brains and skills I can do something more challenging. Like operations or something like managing a team. Any suggestions on career changes? OTE 195 (base 85)
Just got engaged and I’m responsible for planning our honeymoon. My fiancé and I have been approved for 2.5 weeks off and I’m hoping to bring 3 different options to the table. What ideas are out there? Wanting a combo between beach and mountains - doesn’t have to be in the US but with so many unknowns around covid I’d appreciate some lower 48 ideas. Thanks! EDIT: budget is around $4-5k
Fall may make COVID19 worse and Trump is not doing much and his incompetence is on full display. Approaching 200K deaths.
Don’t know why, but I am not feeling afraid of getting laid off. And also I don’t feel like pushing to get another job in case that happens. I am fed up with this visa nonsense, the corporate slavery they have in name of H1B. And also this whole world in turmoil due to covid has left me thinking what better i could do to add value to the society. Adding to the agony of American dream is the civil unrest in US, trump again for 4 years, more guns, absurdity of USCIS etc.
5wks pregnant and wondering — when did people tell their teams they were pregnant? I’m mindful that we’re “always on” during COVID, and I’m thinking about dr appts and what to do if/when morning sickness shows up, since I’m on zoom ~6hrs/day... but it’s also so painfully early. Would love to hear how other moms have handled! Did this allow you to create better boundaries for things like protecting your sleep and stress?
I notice a large amount of single black women in their late 30s and early 40s still looking, never married and it’s freaking me out. I’m almost 30 and it feels like another 10 years will pass and I’ll still be here. I don’t want to pitty them but I’m already feeling bad for myself. Before Covid, going out to bars I’d notice a large number of single black women of any age seemingly all waiting to get chosen and it’s like some of us are just doomed to this fate whether we want it or not.
Corona Virus is obviously a very serious situation. Sometimes laughter is the best way to not go crazy.. Post your best CV Memes. The one with the most likes wins a roll of Toilet paper!
Turning 28 soon. Living at home during the pandemic. I have to be extra cautious bc I live with parents and an overbearing physician sibling. Went through an awful break up near the beginning of covid and feels like another talking stage is ending with current guy. Hope friends plan something for me but can’t count on it. Feeling lonely and trying to emotionally prepare myself for a rough birthday.... anyway looking for suggestions on ways to treat myself/keep my spirits high!
I want a Cavapoo, a Morkie or a Chihuahua. Anything small really. Where do I buy one? I’m ok with either a pet store or rescue. In a Manhattan pet store recently I was shown puppies averaging $5k. I’m ok spending $ on one and realize perhaps prices went up due to Covid but that’s quite more than I thought I’d spend. Ideas?
24M and moved to a new city (KC) before COVID hit. It's been extremely challenging not only with dating but also just making friends. Who else can relate? Any tips on improving my social life?
Is your company doing regular covid testing ? How frequently are hospitals doing testing for staff
I’m so anxious about my BIL’s fiancé’s bridal shower. My in laws - the entire side has decided Covid isn’t really a thing and have been living their lives like normal since May. None of them have it as far as we know, but my MIL is insisting they have to have a wedding this year and have to have a shower for his fiancé. I totally get that, but I don’t feel comfortable being around them
For those who had COVID and lost your sense of taste, did you lose it completely or were the flavors just less strong?
Friends from India - has the performance wrt covid 19 in India affected the standing on the BJP? Please see graph below
I took metro and met with a friend over the fourth weekend. I am having headache and feeling sleepy. Body temp feels high but when I checked there’s no fever. My friend said he coughed a bit but not much. Should I get tested for COVID??
CDC's current best estimate is that 35% of Covid infections are asymptomatic and mortality rate for symptomatic infections is only 0.4%. Hindsight is 20/20, but this was all a huge overreaction and not worth the economic cost and long-term negative impact of shutting everything down. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html
my bf & I lived in nyc but since covid happened he has moved out to a suburb to save money on rent and live with his parents for a few months. I quarantined out of nyc with family in the spring & early summer but came back to nyc to avoid doing long distance with my bf. He didn’t come into the city this past weekend to see me (I have spent some time out of the city last month with his family too) & to me that was a red flag that he’s really not making a huge effort to see me? Am I overthinking?
Has COVID affected your friendship (especially if you are an introvert)? I’m kind of an extreme introvert and has completely isolated myself from my core group of friends. Dynamics of our friendship has completely shifted in the last three month and I feel like I’m on the outskirts looking in which really sucks. Not sure what I’m trying to achieve with this post but I wanted to get this off my chest cause I’m feeling a bit down. Also making amends that I also have to put in the effort...
