My friend just asked to rent my car for 3 months. Any thoughts on if this would be a good idea? I don’t drive my car very often and could probably survive for 3 months without one. She would pay for the insurance and a rental fee each month but it still just seems strange to me.

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
Anyone has experience flying with 4th luggage with American? EXP here and called the hotline - policy states the 4th bag is $200 which I find pretty steep.

First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm.

How can I tell?

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Despite being vaccinated, I came down with COVID last week. I’m wiped out. Zero energy, high fever, coughing. On Friday partner calls to tell me he wants me to write a letter which I decline due to my condition. He respond it can wait until Monday. It’s Monday and my symptoms are largely unchanged. Am I seriously expected to work right now? I can barely stay awake long enough to write this question.

My coworker was abruptly fired. He runs all of our Asia markets. I supported him and have now been asked to “step up” and take over his markets (quadrupling my workload). I’m half his age and make half of his salary (70K). I want to use this as an opportunity to negotiate for a higher salary. How much should I ask for? Is $120K too insane of a jump?
