I currently have an autoimmune disease , receive two immunosuppressive drugs , had my vaccine and still have Covid pretty bad . I am thinking of taking a. Leave of absence because I can’t keep getting sick like this . Has anyone else been in similar shoes ?
Honest opinion on the COVID vaccine mandates? No judgement on my part; just want to know the heartbeat of the community?
Mid life crisis maybe? I recently sold my house (mid renovation, was just sick of it) so now I am renting. I don't like my city, I am just here for the job. I don't really like that either, I had the job to pay for my house. I had a house because I had a lot of stuff. I have learned due to covid I can live happily out of my van/camper. I have no plan for kids and have decided I am happiest solo. Wtf do I do now? Feeling very aimless. Like I could probably coast-retire n live on $20k/yr.
With so many professionals working from home due to Covid-19, what are your tips / strategies for being productive when WFH?
Folks on H-1B, do you really need to be in your home office (or within commutable distance during COVID) 1 day per week? How strictly is this enforced, if at all? Thank you!
20 year road warrior here. My wife & I made it work through teamwork & commitment. My weekends were spent at home. Doing family things. I know a guy who (pre COVID) traveled every week, yet found time to do 200 mile weekend biking trips with his ‘crew’. Almost every weekend. His family vacations always seemed to include a 500 mile bike race or some other extreme event. He is now doing this in Europe (according to IG). How do spouses put up with that?

Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.

We are experiencing more behavioral issues from all students bringing our Administration, Middle School Building Principal to create a Discipline Team. I am on the team. I am a SPED teaher. Youth's emotional worth and ability to learn communication, working, socializing with peers during Middle School especially, was ceased. Our students, due to COVID-19, are acting nearly 2 years behind their maturity level. This is a fact across the USA. Guessing, across the world.
