It seems like everyday my bosses are asking me to do something different with my lesson plans. I have to add something or elaborate. I wish I had more support and really just an example of excatly what they want.
Is anybody else struggling to plan during school hours? It’s my first year teaching all subjects and I CANNOT for the life of me get caught up. I feel like I’m constantly working to try and catch up.

I report to a VP who also handles HR. I am working on building FCPA policies and a compliance program. Today she told me she needs to check with an outside attorney to see if CA law will cause issues for us. . . I just need to vent. I’m trying to figure out why is she paying me, but then again I totally shouldn’t care!! I’ve learned my lesson. Don’t report to someone with no legal background.
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)

I got a super small crack on my windshield last night (top right corner and smaller than a dime). Insurance covers it and offered to send someone over, but not until 11/15. Will it keep expanding from now until then if I keep driving? Don’t drive much, but still need my car occasionally. Thank you.
Final night of a 3 night stay at a Staybridge in a nice part of a nice city the other night paid completely with IHG points. Came back at 2am to find cockroaches all over the bathroom. Called front desk and they didnt have bug spray nor an additional room. Woke my friend up at 2:30am and my wife and I ended up crashing on her couch. As we left that night night manager said "I actually have a two bedroom but didn't offer it to you because you were only two people". Manager calls wife (continued
I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
Leaving NYC for Austin soon. What’s the best car I can get, new or used, for $25k? I’ll likely only be in Austin for 2 years before I leave for another job or an MBA, so something that’s friendly for first time drivers and has a decent resale value (or can be used by my parents) is a plus.

Recently, as you probably know, Dr. Seuss's estate chose to stop printing a few of his older books that had offensive racial stereotypes. There was huge backlash from white people, including teachers here, screaming "cancel culture!" Now we have a white guy who murdered eight Asians in custody, unharmed; while the police officer who killed an African American man for allegedly trying to pass a bad check is about to go on trial. Full disclosure: I'm white. But I'm still enraged by all this. You?
I had a final round of interview yesterday. At the end of the interview, the interviewer said ' let's stay in touch'. A bad sign, right? Should I give up the hope?
How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.
