Got an email from CLEAR that my membership is up for renewal soon. I had gotten it free through United 1K (earned in 2019). With united extending status, does that mean I can renew CLEAR for free? No plans of using it anytime soon (S/O to COVID), but don’t want to forget or lose the perk before I travel next...
I have bad Sunday blues. I feel like I should just take xanax and go to bed. I am in a bad covid cycle of binge eating, starving, drinking too much, then being rigidly “good” for a few days then spiraling into the cycle again. I feel doom and can’t get off my couch. I went on vacation w family and had a good time last week. Back home alone I feel in a funk again. Funkier than Cold Medina. Just wanted to share with someone.
Anyone adjusting holiday family visit plans due to COVID? How are you approaching it? Currently pondering what my family will do and how we’ll communicate it to relatives..

How do you help a parent in India who is so much intro conspiracy theories cause of whatsapp forwards and fake news? They believe that doctors give fake covid report now that elections are over and unwilling to take tests. They don’t believe think covid is hoax just that they get totally lost in all forms of communication.
I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.
Have two tickets to the Mad Hatter event today at 12pm near Grand Central. It’s an immersive experience with 3 drinks included. Usually each ticket is $70, I’ll sell both tickets for $70. My friend got COVID and Fever won’t let us reschedule. Any takers???
Trump supporters, do any of you really believe Louis Gohmert got coronavirus from wearing a mask?

Should I be worried about covid if my wedding is in December?? I know nobody knows for sure, but just wanting to see what others are thinking!
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
Anyone recently visit France from US and get a French “health pass” for Covid coverage? I applied online but haven’t heard anything back
My midsize firm decided on a salary freeze for this year. It kept the incentive bonuses, but no raises. Is this unusual in the COVID-19 era? Or are other firms doing the same?
Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
i feel like all hospital rooms should be equipped with video conferencing. Keep friends and family close to patients, even without COVID
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
The added pressure of navigating the application/testing process along with general concerns about COVID have been a lot to handle lately. How have you all been dealing with this and managing anxiety?
Been passed over for promotion twice (had support from multiple partners both times). Received the top performance rating every year since joining the firm (6 years), which I’ve heard is rare. When passed over, the partners say there were others who have been waiting longer (not necessarily with the highest ratings) and that I should “keep doing what I’m doing” and basically wait my turn. Anyone else face this and have any suggestions/guidance?
Where can I see my position in the upgrade list for delta? Haven’t seen in app or website.
My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER. One associate quit and another is out of full paid parental leave (must be nice, I’m not paid for doing double the work)…so I’m now expected to do the work of 3 associates. My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law. If I quit, how hard is it to find a new job?
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
I have 3 weeks of upcoming vacation (most of Nov), but i just received a new offer to start Dec 10. I'm wondering what is the most professional way to handle resigning? Resign now, when i get back, or let them know part way through the vacation?

Thinking about leaving the PM/Product Owner life. Would like to do something new, creative and keep current salary range. When researching for a major career pivot, what are some resources used to ‘see what’s out there’? Thanks!
Should I be putting any money into my loans at this point? I havnt had to pay them yet with covid. What is everyone doing? Once payments resume again is anyone in a rush to pay them off?
Currently at Crowe with a Big 4 offer- financial advisory (Manager). I’m ready for a jump and saw that both BCG and Bain are opening offices in my locale (Denver, CO). I’m assuming they’re going to be staffing up. For those BCG and Bain fish, is it worth it to reach out and to whom?
30 weeks pregnant and instead of having a zoom celebration, I’d just like to send an email to family and friends to upload their selfie on a website with words of wisdom for us first time parents (which we can print into an album book of some sort). And ideas on what website to use for this? Or any other creative ideas to get family and friends involved that does not require an online party? Thank you
TikTok or Cepheid Biotech Hey guys, I need to make a decision today on whether I want to start a career as a Talent Sourcer at TikTok or as a Onboarding Specialist at Cepheid, a Biotechnology company. Both in the Bay Area at $35 per hour and both are currently WFH. The TikTok position is less stable and very numbers driven, while the Onboarding position is more “secure” but less exciting. I am overthinking the fact that I would need to be presenting orientations for hours a day, and could be shy

Anyone here gone from big 4 to MBA to MBB? Any tips? Planning on recruiting for summer internships in the fall but heard “interesting” work experience (I.e., blue chip, IB, engineering) is what gets you an interview, while I have very “uninteresting” work experience coming from big 4. Any insights are much appreciated!!
