Protests scared coronavirus away!
Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
As a first year AC, should I be investing in property and renting it out? (houses are cheap where I live, and got even cheaper bc of covid) Or should I be investing in stocks/index funds?
I find that single male friends of friends are generally very eager when we first met or were introduced (through events, common friends’ parties). I got invited to their hangout bunch / house parties (pre-covid), but the moment we established i have no romantic interest and only friendships, they disappeared and we become barely acquaintance. I genuinely want to keep them in my life as friends. Why is this the case?
In the classroom, I would average 6k-8k steps. Now working from home, I rarely even hit 2k. How many steps are you getting these days? #feeling lazy
Homework... it’s my worst nightmare in the classroom. I have to give it but have flexibility in creating my own policy. Please share what you give, how you collect, and/or grade!! THANKS!
Has anyone ever had a student in their classroom who became very sick part way through the school year? What did you do to show support as a teacher/school community?

Question, my gym trainer tested positive for COVID yesterday. Client wants me to come in for a meeting tomorrow that could easily be done over phone. I let them know about exposure and suggested I dial in to mtg instead, but said Im vaccinated/can come in if needed...client wants me to come in still. Is this normal?
Has a fight ever broken out in your classroom with your students? Just had to break up my first one 🤦🏻♀️
Anyone else realizing that family, friends, and general relationships are SO much more important than accomplishments as a result of covid/WFH?
Due to social distancing rules, when the kids come into school in the morning, they have to immediately report to their classrooms. I get it, but I also don't have time to entertain them as I'm prepping for class. What can I do to keep them busy?
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom.

How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run

I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

I’ve had issues since high school, but just formally got diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve always managed to get by okay at work (I’m no super star), but remote meetings have been really difficult for me and I now feel like I’m barely hanging on. Trying meds now, but no benefits yet. Pros and Cons of disclosing the diagnosis to my team, partner, or firm? I’m torn.
