Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=. The caveat: can wait 1 yr where supply MIGHT catch up a little to flatten out this crazy market while interest rates still haven’t crept up to that 4-5% average. Ill have more buying power with prices POTENTIALLY decreasing and more money saved for down payment.can skip starter and go straight for forever home. Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr
Has anyone successfully reduced their cellulite? Anyone tried any non-surgical cellulite treatments/procedures (at medical spas, other than OTC creams and stuff)? Or maybe certain exercises have helped? I like my body shape and weight but have a shit ton of cellulite on my butt that I think is time to try to smooth out a bit if at all possible 😬
Folks who have had unexpected medical debt: any advice on how to avoid it? It seems like one of those areas where you can get screwed badly if you’re not super careful. I’m familiar with some common scenarios (the hospital is in network but the provider is out of network) but what other sorts of things should I be looking out for?￼￼

Do jobs outside of public accounting have a support system where bosses help? I’m sick of getting review notes from partners and them assuming I know wtf they’re talking about and how to fix it. Yeah I’m a manager but I don’t know everything.
Stop showing up in all my hotel rooms, Mario Lopez. Sick of your corny lines and never aging face.
Have a male friend who had been extremely helpful when my parents were sick (neuro related). He’s a recent neurosurgeon, we’re friends since primary school but we havent spoken for a decade since we lived in different coast. In the last 6 months we speak a lot due to his expertise in this health field and generosity to follow up regarding my parents health. What can I send him to thank for his help all this time? Any nice gestures. Fyi platonic only, he’s married

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
Seriously considering quitting and pursuing my true passion, which is in a totally unrelated field. Every time I look at an ad, I get sick. I’ve been considering this for the past 2 years. Is it time?

Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?

Ladies, I love facials and massages but can’t justify a full-blown spa trip even though I’d love one (2022 or whenever Covid threat is minuscule). How did you consider the cost? Are there R&R trips out there with this kind of pampering that won’t break the bank?
Holy cow. Received an offer and the bi-weekly contributions for health insurance is like $150 for one person. Is that normal? Am I missing something? This is a large global company.....why so much
