Going to be in the market soon for a new car (sedan) to replace my old warhorse (2006 Camry). Considering a Lexus ES (both new and very lightly used - less than 10k miles) and Tesla 3 (only new, both in the same range depending on trim and options chosen). Primary factors are:
1- Reliability ; 2- Total Cost of Ownership; 3- Smooth and luxurious ride . Plan to keep car for 15+ years. Any recommendations on one vs the other? Or any other option I may have missed in this price range?

I love London with all my heart, but I don’t think I can stay here post Covid. I need to be closer to my family, and this pandemic has really put everything into perspective.
Public service announcement: please update your bio. I am in-house counsel and I regularly check bios and/or LinkedIn if you’re working for me or across from me, and I am shocked at how many senior associates and even partners in biglaw have no bio, no representative transactions, etc. You’ve already done the work, show it off! Such an easy way to sell yourself (and such an easy way to leave me wondering if you’re qualified if it’s missing).
There is such a high turn over for teaching now. Most just see it as a job or stepping stone to something easier. I think the high turn over rate is due to lack of training. What do you think?

Question about paying off a car vs. financing - I'm 23 and have no debt (hence why I'm a little afraid of taking it on). I thought the best move would be to save up cash and pay off in full, so I have about $30K saved up but now I'm reading that maybe it would be better to put down a down payment and finance the car instead. Thoughts?

I got an offer from BlueOptima as an SDET Engineer.
They are offering me 40% more than my current organization.
However, I'll have to forgo my unvested RSUS if I were to join.
Which would even out the pay that BlueOptima is providing me.
The only pro I am seeing for joining, is the potentially new learning opportunities that I might get in a startup.

Met a girl today through AM setup. She is a year older to me and earns 1.6X my CTC(more than enough for a good life in a metro city). She seems career oriented but doesn't want to pursue her career abroad and wants the same for her future partner to not go overseas as she would like to stay near to her family in the same state.
I don't have any career opportunities abroad in the next few yrs but i would like to go if an opportunity comes in the future.
What should be my response?
