Going through one of the phases where I’m hanging on by a thread (and I’m not even frequently traveling right now!!), ugh. Preschool parent visits, rsvps to birthdays and school events...
The amount of love I feel for my cute new pet, including the motivation he gives me to get out of bed in the morning, makes me wonder how much more having a child could change one's life for the better.. 🐣

Traveling from Seattle-NY-Dubai-India soon. I want to take alcohol for my father but I don't drink. Which Scotch/whiskey is popular? Is it better to buy here, and check it in or in duty free?
Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby).

I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time. I did it because I got mad other people can finish the level so easily but I cant seem to. I never feel good enough, and I think it stems from my father for 18 years telling me I am never good enough. Now I never know if I see myself as unworthy because its true or im conditioned to believe it.

Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.

The TCS HR asked me to upload all the educational certificates, last hike letters, last 3 pay slips, ID proofs and past work experience letters before the salary discussion.

Biden calls Arizona "an important city" during an interview. Truly unfortunate the Democrats continue with the elder abuse of making him go through with this campaign. This is like checking a guy out of the nursing home and dropping him off in a random place and letting him wander off. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DAQXHn5-igKw&ved=2ahUKEwi3u8PZm-zqAhWRlnIEHa3WDVUQtwIwBXoECAYQAQ&usg=AOvVaw0n02Rz7lmrrFbu8N2kAuvq&cshid=1595811150099
