I do. I don’t know if it’s worth it or not... I can’t think while standing. I know that sounds stupid, but it’s true.

I’m the same!! When I’m doing something that needs some extra thought I always decline it down. Lol

With all the medical studies out there proving the dangers of sitting all day, I say it’s totally worth it.

Just spitballing here, but some businesses are choosing to stay closed because it is cost prohibitive to comply with guidelines. So my thought is, why not a tax credit for PPE/plexiglass barriers/whatever other items might not be necessary to satisfy guidelines? Maybe a more generous home office deduction? Not in lieu of anything else, but to the extent the tax code is used to incentivize and disincentivize certain behaviors, I think these could be beneficial. Thoughts?

The curved monitor I was eyeing at Best Buy suddenly went up $30 last night. Are they just marking it up so they can mark it down for Black Friday? (Noticed the same thing happened to a standing desk on Wayfair)

Anyone actually have any success managing time off for mental health at their firm? I’ve been working for about a year and a half and the hours and demands have been heavy, but manageable. The exhaustion and burnout of learning how to be a lawyer in the isolation of an apartment during the pandemic is finally catching up. There’s also layers of other personal issues. I don’t want my team to think less of me if I speak up but I’m really at a personal low. Would appreciate hearing about others

Just got notified I was selected in the second round of H1B picks. I received word I wasn't picked in the first round and my OPT time limit was reached at the end of July, so was transferred to the London office and started a new team from Aug 1st. Obviously had no idea I would subsequently be selected....will the fact that I am now part of a different team from the one my application was initially applied for with make me ineligible???
