What are some cool neighborhoods to explore outside the norm in DMV? A lot of COVID life has been walking around, checking out coffeeshops, outdoor dining etc. (Standard areas being DuPont, U st/14 st, AdMo, SW / Navy Yard, Courthouse in Arlington, Old Town Alexandria, NoMa, etc.)

Seconding upper northwest. The American University campus and surrounding area is beautiful and the entire area feels like a completely different place, more like a European city. Go have a breakfast at Little Red Fox or get Mediterranean in Connecticut. Also, start exploring wineries in Virginia if you want to go further afield. One of my favorite things to do around here is go on a good hike with friends in the Shenandoah and then hit a new winery (with a designated driver). You might also check out Distellery Lane Ciderworks in MD.

I like Bloomingdale. Can hit up a restaurant in Shaw and then hang in Crispus Attucks park.

Random, last-minute request.

Dallas is hosting “America's Outstanding Teen National Competition” (Miss America-Affiliated) this week and they are looking for one CPA to volunteer/support for 1-2 hours a day (Tues-Fri). Their CPA had to back out today with Covid.

If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering, I can connect you with the organizers. Good opportunity to give back/support a good cause.

Helping current employers prep job spec for my replacement. Salary was a factor for me leaving but minor relative to other things.

During editing reviews a top leader added a line stating base pay and bonus. The base pay is significantly higher than what I’m on (I’m below market average). Been with them for nearly 8 years and been referred to as a top player (I carried out multiple roles to get biz through covid).

Is this normal? Should I bring this up?

I guess my question is...since i have to reposition my views on Everything now..what is the point of buying a house, saving for retirement, etc when you don’t have kids? Because you don’t need the space and it’s easy to save for retirement.
