When corona started, I was way more lenient with drinking on weekdays, since life was boring now and it was a way to chill out and have fun even if I was just hanging in my apartment. Now it’s been months and I still feel like I use drinking to mark the transition from working to chilling almost every day. Is this a bad thing? I never expected to be WFH this long. I used to be pretty much a social drinker. Wondering if anyone else has had the same experience.

For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
