Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it. Take your brain and imagination on a wonderful vacation to fantasy land. I'm doing some time travel to get away and dream. I hope you try it. Here's to coping skills!

I've been working as a Sr. Recruiter (salaried) with a new company for the past year. In that time, we've gone through 3 leaders and we're on our 4th now. In my role, I support multiple regions in various time zones, so I'm required to work longer hours. I dont mind it at all but recentIy I was out sick for 2 day and my new manager asked me to use pto for those missed days. We've had several convos regarding my work style etc. This was a bit off putting and would to get other perspectives.

Welcome to all my fellow travelers. Travel is a great way to open your eyes to the world we live in. To experience new cultures & customs & embrace diversity in our world which makes being human so special. Due to Covid travel has been definitely not a priority for most people. As travel changes in our society due to borders opening and technology let's discuss and share on the experience so we can adjust to our new world and prepare for a safer experience which could be inspiring-

Hi Investment 🐠,

I want to buy a condo or house that’s a part of a resort community with a rental program, with the idea that I rent it out 99% of the year, and am looking to crowdsource suggestions. It can be in any high end ski, beach, or golf destination within an 8 hour flight radius of New York, with the US, France, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, or Spain preferred. Areas with limited forest fire/hurricane risk are a plus. At least two bedrooms/bathrooms, max budget of $1m. Thanks!
