I just got on a project that requires me to be remote. I feel like this is will limit my impact and stunt my career growth and I'm looking for Senior this year. Any advice? Can I avoid the project?
Work-from-home Fridays are my lifeblood and only joy
Remote Friday's 😎
When you work from home and pace around your apt for no reason while on a conf call only to unmute and find yourself a little out of breath and taking a seat again immediately
Unassigned for the next couple weeks. Fighting the urge to work from home until I am assigned. #minivacation
Today's email response speed: WFH 🐌
Threw my remote in the garbage disposal last night...I need to get it together and stop drinking

Manager texted me at ~10pm asking for a non-critical update. I chose not to respond (until morning) because I don't want to allow a bad habit to form. Thoughts?
Senior is in charge of organizing a team lunch. I'm the only vegetarian on the team. He picks an all you can eat meat buffet. I think it's safe to say he hates me
I fly a lot of Regional Jets. 6 seats in first class. How would suggest dealing with someone that places their luggage in first class but sits in coach?
I feel like I have serious seasonal depression. I am new to a city up North, it’s always 25° or less, I have no car, and I still don’t know a ton of people. Any suggestions to get me out of this rut?
I was in O&G in late 2014 when the oil price also sh*t the bed (from an even higher level). Feel bad for those guys. The Saudi moves suggest the price won’t rebound soon.
A former employer had to lay off some staff today. I’d like to message my old partner to offer support since I know she won’t be happy about laying off half of her staff. What would you say?
I need a mouse - considering the MX master 3 or the newly released anywhere 3 from Logitech. I’m a functional analyst, I just want some good and reliable. Feedback or recommendation would be cool
I have a value x which should grow to 1.2x over 5 years. Given compounding, how do I convert this growth to a constant 5-year CAGR? I know should be a little under 4% but looking for the general formula
Thanksgiving wake up call: I don’t just want money, I want money and time to spend the money with those I like.
New Years and New Year Resolutions are around the corner, so a friendly PSA from a CPT: - going to the gym is NOT enough, you HAVE to watch your calories. Don't believe me? Eat a small 100 calorie candy bar and then walk on the treadmill and see how long it takes to burn 100 calories. - don't go too hard in January, instead find a stable routine. Going to the gym 6days a week in January will result in burnout by February. It's much better to go 2-3 days a week and have it last until May.
I feel like I’m “innately competitive” in a negative way, and I don’t want to be. I feel a little bit of jealousy when I hear about accomplishments of my peers and sometimes even friends. How do you reconcile or get over this? I know it’s wrong and want to fix it.
Does anyone else feel relatively ok, seemingly unaffected by the pandemic depression/loneliness and all it takes is someone asking you "are you ok?" And you end up tearing up out of nowhere? 🥺
