Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.

They are ignorant of reality. Children can get the virus and transmit it to the teacher. Make sure to wear your mask and possibly face shield to protect yourself. Also enforce the kids to keep their masks on, which will be difficult. If they come to class sneezing or coughing, send them to the nurse for evaluation and isolation if needed until a parent can pick them up.

Also try to keep your distance, which is also difficult.

One of the partners at the firm asked me if I can move my marriage (already planned and shared dates 3months back) to next year as there is lot of work to be done for the client. I am always grateful, as for everything I have learnt in consulting is at this company. But asking me to reconsider one of the most important events in my personal life against a project. Is that right? How do you care for your work and employer anymore after this?
