Well if they're all ~30min... 🐒


Use the “Decline - don’t send response” option like a boss.


There’s a middle option…Decline and don’t send comments. They get the decline, but no comments or reason. We all win


Block of time for meetings with yourself to get work done.


Short work week! Nice!!!


You don’t need to attend them all

was 72 an exaggeration?

No one is going to set boundaries for you except yourself. (Note to self)

What types of investments should one make in their Roth IRA? Since the gains are tax free, shouldn’t Roth be used for relatively short-term trades instead of long-term hold as one doesn’t have to worry about short-term cap gains?
Also, is backdoor roth rollover one time event or can i contribute 6k every year to traditional IRA and roll that over every year to my Roth? Noob here


Asked for a couple of hours off over a weekend for mental health reasons and was told that I can’t take time off and that I should “just hang in there”. This comes after working back-to-back 80hr weeks for no real reason (not closing anytime soon). Didn’t think it’s a lot to ask for but the senior I work with wants me to be available all the time. Is this something I should bring up with HR and if so how?


Had been talking with a girl for a while now. Late night video calls and what not and finally took her out on a date now after Omicron.
The date was great till she says she wants to get married by this time next year.
I have no objection to getting married but I can't commit to marriage so soon. We'd have to date more, go on trips and stuff before we can commit to a lifetime with each other.
She breaks it off there and then.
She's 26 and I'm 29.
Should I be dating 23-24 year olds?


Pet peeve: Interview candidates who ask me everything about my past experience they found on LinkedIn and none about current firm. Signals to me little interest in the role/firm.


Hi everyone! I just found out that tenants pay broker fee in Boston. Usually landlords cover this. Is the rental market set up in a way that you have to go through a broker and there is no way to avoid this fee ? Appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks !

Can you find a decent studio/1br place in Boston on $110k salary? If so, any particular neighborhoods?
