Anyone get gift guilt? Lol. Like I hate it when my spouse buys me a super expensive gift & I get them something modest. Even if we set a budget for gifts they always get something over the top🙄

They love you more than the budget allows.

The price of the gift is directly proportional to guilt.

Remote workers— what’s your daily schedule like, how much are you at your desk all the time?

This law job is my first 9-5 ever, and it’s been disorienting trying to figure out boundaries and a schedule when there’s no one around to compare to? Sometimes I feel bad about taking a lunch or not being near my computer, even when the workload is light, which is wild. Frankly, I just don’t know how to take advantage of the flexibility of remote work because I’m so preoccupied with being available.

As far as preferred gender pronouns go, I’m all about choosing he, she, xe, ze, whatever you want to describe yourself as - but can we please rethink using “they” and “their” to describe a single person? It gets confusing ya’ll. There’s zero judgement here, just grammatically speaking it introduces so much ambiguity and misunderstanding into the English language. That is all. Feel free to clap back if you think I’m out of line or misunderstanding something - always here to learn
