Is anyone else tired of hearing people talk about all of the things our seniors are missing out on? I’m so tired of this entitlement situation. Yes, it would be nice to have a graduation and end of the year activities. But these things are not owed to anyone. How about being grateful for survival? There are students all over the world that seem to get along just fine without senior activities.
I got married to a white American girl we have a kid now. My family is visiting from India and she is not ok with them staying for prolonged periods 3 weeks at a time in this case....contd

So I want to leave. I wanted to leave last year and got suckered into staying. Now I feel trapped bc my SM is on maternity leave and by the time she is back I’ll be rolling into busy season ...
I found out today that my mid-70s mother converted the $40K or so she got when she and my dad divorced in the 90s to a net worth of almost $1M today. She got a little bit of money when my grandparents died, but she essentially did it on her own with some savvy investments and living very frugally (she was a SAHM and never had a paying job). My dad was TERRIBLE with money, so I’m especially proud of her for figuring out how to come out ahead. I told her she needs to write a book. Go Mom!
Benchtime thoughts- As a kid, I used to be excited for chocolates and cookies bought from the US by my relatives. And now when I'm working here in the US, I go to the Indian store to buy Parle G 🙃

In the market for a good book on breastfeeding. How does one manage to read a 500 page book on breastfeeding. Need some recommendations for a good book that does not make me feel like I am studying to be a lawyer.
Been thinking a lot about justice lately, and realized that justice applied unequally is justice denied. Lori Loughlin took a pic of her own kid working out, and is going to jail. A bunch of violent mobs topple statues of our Founding Fathers, and society looks the other way. What kind of example are we setting for the next generation?
I visited a friend of mine who has a 1 year old baby, and asked me if I wanted to get a dog. then she asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. since it is a good way to take care of something else, and to train for the future. Honestly I find this hilarious, but I don’t think having a plant or a dog will make my life fulfilling 🤣🤣
Ladies, what do you think of this dress for a girl baby's baby shower? The dress is more poofy than it looks in the picture (or so it fits on me). Don't want to stand out more than the mom 😂
Was afraid I was pregnant despite two methods of contraceptive after a one-night stand...now that I’m fairly certain I’m not, I’m disappointed? Is this normal? I feel absolutely insane.

How do you deal with personal problems at work? I’m struggling with my mother not accepting that I’m gay to the point I spend mornings and nights crying. It becomes hard to go to work on some days
Thinking about buying an 850k home. We make 318k together and spend about $11,700 a month, which will probably jump to 13,400 because we’ll be expecting to add day care and possibly another child.
People who keep 4-5 months of emergency fund - do you keep it in a savings account or invest in stock market or checking? We have started building our (wife, kid and I) emergency fund and not sure what’s the best strategy.

I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early
