Denzil Washington says: "you get good at what you practice". I apply that logic to your question:

Practice faking and pretending; one day you wake up a fake and pretentious person.

Practice being real and making a productive living; you'll build a life that is founded on trust and success.

Fake it until you retire.

The truth is no one really knows what they're doing. Even if they think they do.

Hey Everyone! I’m looking to buy my first watch. I really like the IWC Portofino black dial. It’s more of an appeal thing for me. I’m wondering what people think of this watch. I figure it would be a great first watch. It would be one that I would wear for special events/ dates...that is until my next watch!

I got an offer from Accenture but I really enjoy my current job. it’s so stress free and i genuinely like the work and the people. It’s in legal case management, but management consulting sounds more allusive in the long run with better pay and growth opportunities. Should I just take it? I’m scared consulting will eat me alive. Realistically, how often does a management consultant work a week?

With the looming threat of recession, should I stop the aggressive payments I have been making on my student loans?

Fishes, would love to have your thoughts on this - I graduated school last year and have been aggressively paying down my student loans (50K left now, started at 91K last summer). With a recession looking likely, should I revert to minimum payments and save more? For context, I have enough saved right now for 4-5 months of living expenses plus some additional money in 401K.
