I've seen a custom one that looked like the background was slowly melting.

The ones that look like a regular office and I almost believe that's my coworkers home office until I realize the lighting doesn't match

I love it when my team members put up memes as their background for some meetings. When their WLB is messed up, they put up the "ATM guy" as their background. When someone is being appreciated, they put up Munnabhai's "tum bohot mast kaam karta hai Maqsood bhai" 😂

I saw on insta, a guy had recorded himself bringing coffee and set that as his background

I like the one that makes it look like you're floating in space.

I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?

Making about 110K TC in industry. Been thinking about getting an MBA in 1-2 years, but not sure if it’s worth it since I’d likely exit back into strategy, which is what I’m currently doing. I think my TC by the time I finish B-School would maybe have a 20K - 30K differential depending on bonus compensation. My parents are pushing me to get one as they’ll pay for it, but I’m not sure if it’s worth it. Are there any B-School grads with thoughts on the value given my situation?
