A colleague talks to me half the time with his eyes closed. I really don't know what to make of it. Is this a nervous twitch? Is he shy? Such strange behavior.

I had that experience too... some people thought the behavior was condescending, but I interpreted it as nerves/anxiety

Sometimes I'll close my eyes partly or entirely if I'm trying to visualize/understand something myself or find a way to explain something to someone else.

But that's mixed in with normal eye contact.

After an interview this morning, I sent out what was SUPPOSED to be a thank you email. I really should have stepped away from my desk and put my full attention towards it, but instead I rushed through it and am now realizing I didn't even THANK HIM FOR HIS TIME OR THE OPPORTUNITY! Ugh.

Does it come off as entitled as I think it does?

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

Amex is the only company I've been with so I want to know from others how it's like in other companies. Hive is so slow. Yellowbrick is fast but not all cornerstone data is there and is practically useless for my team's use case. MLS crashes so often. Ask Aida support is so sloppy and they just regurgitate the same information over and over again. Is this an Amex thing or is this just how big data works everywhere?

Is it me or is the high finance track (IB, PE, HF) not worth it anymore? Seems like there’s more stress and long hours and money isn’t worth it. Also the people in it don’t even seem “cool” anymore. Most people just seem very insecure and stressed and not enjoying life at all. To me the tech route (whether as a dev or a business person), seems so much better. There’s more opportunity and less stress. Also people are more progressive and open. Any thoughts? Feel free to agree or disagree.
