If we didn’t have reliable Internet, I don’t think most of us would still be WFH. I’d probably be sitting pretty with my unemployment benefits, enjoying this time with my family instead of descending into an abyss of exhaustion.

Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!

Planning a weekend getaway for my aunt’s birthday this year. She would like something local and a bit remote to allow lots of reflection/meditation. What local areas do you recommend? I’m in DC/MD.

Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
