Network hard only so that you don’t end up on a shitty project. But hope that you have a week on the bench before the next one starts

What I did before getting on this shitty project. Sent 20+ emails to SM/PPMD I knew or didn’t know, got a few responses and had a few conversations. Led nowhere. Scheduled a call with a SM three times. Three times the SM just didn’t join the call without saying anything the last two times. So I gave up.

What if you do B but then get discouraged due to lack of responses/available projects so it turns into A but then feel guilty for not doing anything so it turns into C and then shifts back and forth between the 3 as you slowly lose your mind on the bench.........

d) Chill for like a week or two and do absolutely nothing work related

Yes I was just told today that I should be networking all the time, and I thought to myself, but I like my bench time 😬! So yeah pretty much A until it starts feeling embarrassing then B/C when I realize there aren't really any good projects.

Ladies, would this be a huge turn off? “Lives with parents, can’t date him” type thing? I’m an only child and my parents bought a new house in 1996 with an unfinished basement. Since I’m paying their house off anyways, I finished the basement and made it incredible. Designed the whole thing myself and have everything I want. It has its own entrance, and the backyard is beautiful. I have an amazing, large double shower, and a beautiful kitchen and nice closet with laundry.
