Yep! We start tomorrow!

We have been back since August, 4 days a week. Our county has some of the highest numbers in the state. We have one elementary school back on remote because there are not enough subs to cover the number of teachers out sick or quarantined.

When do you know that it’s time to leave your current agency? Currently experiencing: told no promotions in sight due to COVID, yet somehow hiring for senior roles in the same sector; subpar clients with no imagination or budget; account leadership that is endlessly critical of team efforts while pushing the same tired ideas across clients. However, as someone relatively new to the industry, isn’t every agency facing the same at the moment? Is the devil you know better than the one you don’t?

Controversial opinion… I’m jealous of the covid-classes were forced to do their MBA’s online. I have no desire to do an MBA in person, but I also have no desire for people to look down on me because I got an online degree which isn’t “prestigious enough” for some people 🥲🙄

Should i buy more or wait ? I didn’t invest during Covid and it was a rookie mistake. I started buying stock gradually last year and aggressively this year after the war started thinking that it was the bottom. I am now 25% down. I have another 10k which is for investing purpose, not sure what to do. Seems like it will go down more. I have invested mostly on tech media and telecom. I am thinking long term.


Help! I’m heading to Europe next week and am nervous about getting COVID and having to quarantine/change my flight back/etc. if I do. Are there any travel insurances that will work with the airlines to change your flight back without making you buy a whole new ticket? I’m thinking about a scenario where I test positive the day before my flight and would want to push my return date back. I bought a round trip and am not sure how this all works with COVID. Thanks for all the insight!

It's the first time that I cried in a while and I'm a guy 🤣


I came down with COVID and finally clearing through this fog of the last month, where I missed the tip I usually give our doormen. There’s like 10 of them for our big building, and while I contributed to the general pool, I missed handing out the individual envelopes where I put a small token of appreciation ($20-40) to each doorman. I feel terrible and wonder if giving them the card now is tacky or not. I thought maybe could coincide with Chinese New Year next week?
