has anyone stayed at the JW marriott or the AC hotel in miami? both got mixed reviews... trying to figure out which one to pick.
Us open grounds passes for sale. Two for Friday for $80 each, two for Saturday for $115 each. Flight to NYC was cancelled this morning :-(.
Flight with Delta delayed several times (in total 12 hours) before being cancelled, better to call in and complain or email, last time I emailed, it took a month to get back to me with only 7.5k miles

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. :)
Any tips for navigating client office politics?

Client execs are aware but have their hands tied. What’s the best way around this?
