I posted this first and fast - so it had errors. I am sorry. I fixed them I hope. Know this: Every day needs healthy air, bowels, rest, exercise and personal life. Chill all you like but staying physically fit but not tired is important to resisting germs. So figure it out and sing at least - great for the spirits and the lungs.
As a senior working person, it's weird - since I am in the "vulnerable" category and more likely to get the virus and die from it, due to complications from other later in life health issues. My resistance to the virus MAY be lower - my chance of contracting the virus MAY be higher, and my odds of quick recovery are not a great as the younger people - So I am happy to LOCKDOWN for now. Ordering in groceries and meeting with business and personal folks on ZOOM or other video . I am fortunate to have good habits and good general health and am fine, so far. I have work with response in my background an have no problem disinfecting things and me.
I had been working from home due to the failure of a knee and its repair scenario, any way...so I am even more graceful than some right now . STAY up to it- just because you are home-officing, no need to do it in your underwear - you'll only have that much more to fix later. Give yourself a fun snowday feeling but then ...
Please stay kind and charming - pray if you can. And BELIEVE - in yourself and whatever else empowers you to win these days one day at a time. When others around you "lose it" - don't wrestle with them - be kind, get some help for them, but distance you. They can tire you and sicken you and you do not need that. To help you - maybe this will work "Two wrongs don't make a right." Don't fault them but don't join them in the bad behavior.
Help is already geared in and it will all be a memory soon - you might want to remember how good you were in this moment.
This virus was Unknown to humans just weeks ago and we already have care and vaccines and other medical response thing helping. PRAISE OUR LEADERS AS HEROES TODAY and "Don't sweat the smallstuff" my late husband would say- we are seeing the major motion picture and normal humans being super human for real. Try to help and not undermine.

I recently had a world-wind and whirlwind vacation overseas traveling throughout Europe.
I fell in love with the architecture, culture and people's attitude regarding work and life.
After working in the NYC rat race for 20 plus years, I'm ready for a change and am open to where I land. I'm done with a need to climb the corporate ladder and instead focus on living life while being able to support myself.
Is there any easier EU passport to obtain as I've had ancestors from all different countries on both sides of my family tree. Instead of trying for a work visa, I'm hoping if I can obtain EU citizenship that would make it easier to work abroad. I'd appreciate your advice!

My manager, the second one I’ve had in my 2 years in this position, is leaving.
Ok, so my organization is great- great people, work-life balance, benefits, etc. However, since I’ve been there (will be 2 years in November), both of my managers i had have/are going to leave for really great opportunities outside of our org. While I’m super happy for them, i am concerned about how it’ll potentially impact my career growth. I’d still be doing the same work just reporting to new people, which may change as they hire on a replacement. Which is annoying to start the manager/employee relationship all over again.
My manager is leaving in a few weeks and is invested in making sure there’s a plan in place for who i report to when they’re gone. I guess my question is what would you ask them/consider during this transition phase? I was hoping to start the “it’s been 2 years, I’d like a raise or at least something to help with inflation” conversation but I hate doing this, it’s always so awkward. At the same time, it may be best to get the ball rolling on that to see what can be done prior to my manager leaving?
any advice is welcome, thank you :)

Hi all - ok this is a first.
The new boss, promoted from within, and I are a bad fit, to put it mildly. I put in my two weeks’ notice, and she replied that I could leave tomorrow.
Here’s the twist: I WANT to stay for two weeks, to put files in order, to coordinate with co-workers the processes for future events, and to finish setting up a Dropbox account for my department. Most of all, I work in a retirement community, and want to ease these beloved residents into the knowledge that their trusted friend is leaving them in good hands. They just lost the last ED without notice and took it badly.
This new boss rules with a cudgel. She starts all discussions with No you can’t do that. She changes my plans on ginned-up reasons (e.g. she canceled my bus trip due to “insurance changes” which had nothing to do with the trip). She lays down the law, and when advised of an error, she doubles down and tries to blame the victim of her error. She refers to staff members as “bodies,” and cares for the residents based on the level of their rent checks. I can’t get away from her fast enough.
Still, I have a good plan for leaving, and as you can tell from the above description of her, any discussion is going to go badly.
any and all advice is much appreciated!
