WFH: is '13 reasons why' worth watching? What are y'all watching on Netflix

"13 Reasons" has a lot of high school drama baked in amongst very real adult topics too. I think it's worth a watch. I just moved on from that to "Better Call Saul" which I recommend much more so.

Is that a spinoff of breaking bad?

Just started 13 reasons. See how this goes...

Sure is which is why I didn't think it would be great (as spinoffs rarely are) but wow was I wrong. Check it out 😊

Watching Empire 😳

Finished it last week. Lots of useless drama but touches on very sensitive topics in a very real way. Not worth binge watching but definitely worth watching.

I like shameless.

Great. Will do. Cheers buddy!

Ok 3 episodes in on 13. I'm meh on it. The useless drama doesn't do it for me.

Must be a long time since any of you were in high school. The "useless" drama in the show is very real

For sure, I also went to a very small high school. I wasn't exposed to this growing up. It's interesting for sure, but not my cup of tea. I will finish it and report back.

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

Anyone else questioning getting an MBA in light of the pandemic and shifting sentiment on remote work? I started a job that’s fully remote and flexible. It’s in a fast moving industry and I feel like taking 2 years away can make me miss out on expected growth that will take place. 2 year grind and then working at some 9-5+ job that won’t be flexible and will likely have to go in office once things are back to normal. With current job I’m making good money and have more personal time.

I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute. I am having discussions with my teachers on ways that I can better support them and the students when remote.

I think the way public education is I’d rather just stay home and educate my kids and work from home. I finally get to spend quality family time. Any opinions

I’m pretty sad right now- I learned that my dad committed 529 fraud against my siblings. He sent overpayments to universities, received reimbursement checks in my siblings names, and then forged my siblings signature and deposited to his account. My sister has $70k in student loans. My brother likely will have many too. My sister is owed at least $22k already, and that’s just from the records I found. Has anyone ever dealt with this? Don’t want to go legal if avoidable

Anyone tried or have a Tonal? Thoughts? How are the class? Do you feel fitter after using it? How long are workouts? How often are you using it? Is it addictive and fun like peloton?

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.
