Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!

Looking to lose 10-15lbs that I had gained during covid. Going to a wedding in 2.5 months that is my main motivator. The past 2 weeks I have been doing well - tracking what I eat, buying healthier groceries and working out 5x a week. Then Easter hit and I went to my family’s lunch, and ate way too much unhealthy food. My mom sent me home with lots of food which I ended up eating most of yesterday. Didn’t workout either days. How can I stop myself from spiraling? Usually I’d give up at this point
Going to my first in-person local networking event since covid after work today. I’m worried I forgot how to be a human in public over the past 18 months. Used to be relatively good at working a room (for someone who codes) but it was a skill I worked at for years before the pandemic hit. Do y’all have any advice?

Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
