I think IKEA has a few if you're looking for price-conscious options (and who isn't these days?).

Fully

It's hit or miss under $500. I have an Ikea one that had bad reviews but mine is a short term hit. If you are mechanical or DIY-handy you can repair if needed (I did).

Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall.

Have you guys heard of ayahuasca? I spent two months of covid lockdown talking to some guy and now he just told me he did this a few years ago... I’m really not a substance/drug person so idk what to think. He keeps bringing it up in convo, even though it was in the past. I’m trying to be open minded but it’s honestly making me uncomfortable. I’ve read about it, but if anyone’s willing to tell me what they know it would be help. My friends are pretty much like me so they’ve never heard of it.

My coworker, who was my friend for a long time, has been lying to me, throwing me under the bus, and taking credit for my work and ideas. I have done more and worked harder than him but he was promoted. He failed a new client big time and I was asked to step in and save the relationship which I did in a big way. Why do I have to work so hard every day while he gets away with scraping by and plagiarizing? How do you deal with a coworker like that?

My salary would be the same but I’d get better benefits and bonus opportunities in house. Plus I’m a mom and will have on-site childcare. Should I be scared that switching from litigation will be boring?
