Would definitely prefer to just travel. But I also don’t have any attachments to home.

Can it be expensed? That’s definitely further that your commute to your local office I presume?

Yep definitely further, not expense as it’s still considered local, but food is still expenses. Just wondering if I’m being ungrateful or if Local can be overrated. I do see my SO on the weekdays though.

Mon-Th travel. IMO 1.5 hour commute each way may be OK for a week or two but it definitely wears you down

My husband and I had a fall out with his parents a few weeks ago. They said some pretty nasty things to him regarding him not wanting to go to his brother’s wedding during a pandemic and his mom uninvited me from the shower. He still wants them to come visit our daughter social distancing of course because they still travel everywhere. I am on the fence because I am still bitter about how they have treated him and me regarding this virus and how we have done everything we can to keep safe...

After being at a string of failed startups (one blew up after I left with no equity 😅) working on and paying for my degree all along the way, I have $40k in debt, $10k cash (after one year of saving post graduation), and make $120k total. I’m 40 next year and want to break the cycle, where the hell do I start? For reference, I want to travel and enjoy life but also want to have a solid savings. Probably my biggest issue is that I give zero f%*>s about money, it gives me very little value.
