Random question. How can someone find out if they’ve been blacklisted? Is that still a thing? Is there a “rate my professor” but for producers/creatives going around? Things aren’t going well job wise and yes, it’s a pandemic... but I need to know if it’s Covid-19 ruining my life or mean girl tactics.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful?

Is the bouncing around bad? Should I consider the job or wait until I hit a year before leaving?

I’m really struggling mentally. The understanding of how insanely busy and overwhelming it will be because of this COVID-19 crap is giving me severe anxiety and panic attacks. I want to leave so badly but no one is hiring right now. I don’t know what to do. I feel trapped with no way out.
Under contract for a 2,700 sqft home in LA. I think the price is OK: it’s not rock bottom and definitely not overpriced either as similar sized homes in the area have sold for MUCH more. The price is decent because it needs a bit of work on the interior, and I’m perfectly fine getting that done. OK time to buy now? Ideally I won’t have to sell this one to buy another home anyway, so in theory the hold period can be indefinite. What do you think about the impending foreclosures due to COVID?
