You are used to seeing yourself in a mirror while a picture can have an angle your brain is not used to.

But I took a screenshot of what I looked like on cam and still liked it so much more lol

You don’t use hangout at Google?

Or google meet or whatever it’s called nowadays

Your computer is like your best friend… they want you to feel loved, cherished, and the best you can on a daily basis. If that means slimming you down when dialing on your daily work calls, you best believe that’s what your best friend is going to do. Your phone, on the other hand, DGAF.

I had multiple mediations recently. I do management side employment law. Overall I’m walking away feeling like what the heck are we paying the mediators for?

I feel like our clients are getting worked way more than the plaintiffs side. Also plaintiffs have followed up every single settlement with “can we get the funds before holiday?”
