Do I have a drinking problem? I live alone. I cannot wait for wine at 6. I work my ass off sober 12 hrs a day. Then I drain 2 bottles of wine. I wake up parched and confused and do it again. I did not have Excedrin yesterday and had to shuffle to Rite Aid to get it. Plus a xanax to chill. But I WORK and produce and never let anyone down. Is this OK? I just work, drink, sleep, repeat.
How well have you adapted to a COVID world of social distancing, WFH, virtual interactions...(like one of the four options below)?
Ladies, I need… perspective. Last night, my husband essentially asked me to “get fit” for him and to do “beauty and maintenance things” with him in mind and not only for me. For reference, im 5’3 145-150 lbs (size 4-6?) and admittedly, I have gained the pandemic 20 since this started like 1.5 years ago. It hurt to have this man essentially say, you need to look better for me. Am I wrong here? Do I just not see that he’s right and I should be doing these things for him?
How would you feel being invited to a late August wedding where the couple asked that you be vaccinated in order to attend? Let’s assume honors system. 150 people invited, all outdoors. 25% of guest list are doctors. Mostly progressive crowd. No kids.
Anyone wanna give me a makeover? Virtually? Tips on hair, makeup and clothing? 6 months of covid quarantining has ruined my style.
Post covid all the guys just wants to hook up and it’s annoying. Been there done that in my 20s, now i want something real and long lasting. Where are all the great men ? Also in nyc, so it’s fun dating but difficult to find relationships
I had covid in mid-Jan. Since then, I haven’t been able to sleep past 3am. Does anyone have any natural sleep remedies or also experienced a bout of insomnia?
Have the number of posts on wanting to quite, people having existential crises, hating their jobs, hating consulting, not being motivated, not giving a shit, unable to function, etc. increased post covid? I joined the app a month ago. Curious to know.
So one of these guys is a 7x convicted felon. The other is in charge of the HHS and the Covid numbers being reported. Nothing to see here.
Good news, Covid goes away now, right?
Hi! I need help thinking of gift ideas for my mentee. We never met in person because of COVID and she lives in LA (I’m in Philly). She turned 21 today and I want to send her something or maybe a few things.
With covid vaccination sites having leftovers, are you actively trying to get vaccinated even if you aren’t eligible for one at this time? I’ve been patiently waiting but have been seeing people scouring sites, calling in, signing up for waitlists, and waiting in line at sites. Making me feel like I should be trying harder to get vaccinated.
Has anyone gotten the covid vaccine yet? If so, how can I get it since I’m not an essential worker as an accountant?
Hey beautiful ladies 🌞 I have a week off between grad school semesters so I want to take a trip. I’m a very experienced solo traveler but with covid it’s more about what’s actually worth visiting in the sense of will still have a variety of stuff open and able to visit? I’m from NYC/CA so preferably somewhere out of those states or country! Any suggestions? Thank you ❤️
Question for the Covid vaccine skeptics who said they’ll leave their company if they mandate the vaccine￼: what happens if the place you jump to then mandates it as well? Which is only getting more likely now that Pfizer has full approval. Are you just gonna jump from company to company to avoid getting it? ￼
Hi Fishes, I currently not doing great in my current organization. I have 5+ years of experience. My package is 5 lpa. I lost my both my parents in 2021 due to COVID. My condition is very bad financially & emotionally. Requesting all fishes to please help me with some referrals if there's any vacancies. Thanks in advance.
I keep getting targeted by businesses trying to capitalize on everyone’s fear of COVID19, but this one really takes the cake:

The high point of my week is optimistically requesting two room keys when checking in at my hotel
For those who’ve transferred internationally, how do you feel your standard of living differed in major cities? For example, NY vs. London vs. Hong Kong vs. Singapore?
FBar related tax question if you have any expertise/insight. - have transferred all my savings for parents until now. - A few (now) inactive bank accounts outside the US - 60k. These accounts were not included/ declared in my FBAR filing, but they still have my name on the account. Is it fine to keep these accounts as is or should I take my name off them?
Best state in the US?
PwC just gave me a $500 raise! LOL
