What to read or watch before first flight lesson to maximize what I get from it? Got one as a gift. 1hr desk, 1hr cesna
Was just on a super delayed flight where we were all stuck on the plane for 2.5 hours before takeoff. I just about died laughing when we finally got in the air and they did the standard “welcome to delta we hope you enjoy your flight.” A bunch of other people started laughing too and it ended up lightening the mood a ton and being a cool moment of solidarity with strangers.

Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it. Take your brain and imagination on a wonderful vacation to fantasy land. I'm doing some time travel to get away and dream. I hope you try it. Here's to coping skills!
So I’ve always had a rough time trying to find what role titles I would be a good fit to apply to given that my career growth has been so peculiar (HR assistant at hotel, Operations Manager at hotel, seller support at Amazon, customer experience coordinator at an IT company, talent acquisition specialist at a health org)
In those roles I normally took more in my plate than the typical role requires (hr functions, data analysis, etc)
With 6-7 years if exp what role should I look?

General question: is there any certain “rule of thumb” post that you sell to take profiles? I’ve seen some experts (“”) say to always collect at 20% and others say until you see a reason to sell. Asking as rearranged last week and luckily got into the airlines before they exploded and now I’m sitting about 50% up on delta. And after selling Zoom way to early (used to buy my delta), I’m not sure whether to take the cash or let it ride more. This fast a rally makes me think it will plummet soon
I’ll be in India for work for 3 months next year and then I’m taking 3 weeks of vacation to travel in Asia. I’ve never been. I have a friend in Shanghai so was planning to visit China if quarantine restrictions relax. I would like to do SE Asia in a different trip, but was thinking about Japan or South Korea? Very early in planning but would love to hear any recommendations or must-dos!
Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
