  1. Maybe it’s wrong but I also have been thinking a lot about climate change during this. I hope that when this all shakes out, there will be more will to raise taxes and use these tax dollars in order to push for clean technologies.

    Also, as someone who left a job in order to be closer to an ailing parent 4 years ago, I am equal parts happy and furious that we have come to the place where working from home is not seen as a special perk but as a necessity. I only wish that this attitude was common 4 years ago, as the decision by my employer to not allow me to work from home ended up costing me tens of thousands of dollars.

    I hope that laws are changed that guarantee this flexibility moving forward.
