24. Was recently laid off from a business job. Was originally premed in college, gave up after only earning a ~3.56 science GPA in a few of the prerequisites. 3.81 GPA overall in college. Cried at the office once over quitting premed and feeling unfulfilled. I’m driven by helping people, not by status and title. Lmao. What do I do? Please don’t go on a rant about how much medicine sucks!

Well I don’t think medicine sucks at all, you get to help people and if you find this fulfilling well then you’re in the right career track if you are still considering medicine. Have you considered DO?

Recently started seeing someone and everything is going great. He is very proactive about planning dates, spending time togetherand doing nice things for me. The only thing is he doesn’t reach out between dates as much as I would like. ie. sometimes I would like to text back and forth or have a phone call for no reason. It doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. I don’t know if I should ask for more because if it’s not in his nature, I don’t want to put pressure and not sure it would make a diff?

Advice! My law firm was hit by the pandemic resulting in no bonuses/salary increases for ‘20. Obvs a lot of associates left but I stayed because I felt that I didn’t meet the hours so it was what it was and + I really like my team (including partners). However, during the pandemic my team barely checked how I was + if I had any work (spoke twice in 7 months?). For ‘21 I am hoping salary increase + substantial bonus but if I don’t get it, should I ask for it (if so, how?) or should I just leave?

It is very hard to explain, and I can’t seem to get any answers. Does anyone have any advice or thoughts about what could be causing this and what steps I should take to resolve this issue? It’s been ongoing for about two years and is very aggravating.
