Anyone got good breakup song recommendations? Getting a divorce. Been married only 1.5 years, together 5 years total. This relationship has made me so miserable from the very beginning. It’s going to be very difficult emotionally I know, but overall I’m looking forward to moving on and having the rest of my life ahead of me (24 yo).

Thank you everyone for the kind words, encouragement, and songs! I now have a 7.5 hour long playlist so I’m sure something will resonate as I work through it. It’s already making feel better just knowing others can relate and are supportive.

“So What” by Pink is the ultimate girl-power breakup song. “ Also, “Pray For You” by Jaron & the Long Road to Love and “Love You” by Jack Ingram (those two are not at all what you’re thinking!).

A former co-worker (not from W+K) who I know got let go because he was not effective or good at his job just got a new job as a VP of Design of a major corporation. He blatantly lied about his experience on LinkedIn (and I assume his resume), inflating his title and severely either overstating his role on projects or flat-out making up projects. It made me wonder just how many “leaders” do you think gain their roles this way? I know it happens, but that doesn’t lessen my anger one bit.

My boyfriend suggested I pay more of the down payment for a house when we get married since I make more (~35K) & have been working longer than him by a few years. He’s going to save as much as he can. Is it reasonable id prefer waiting until we can split the down payment 50/50? Or should I put more of the down payment and then we adjust paying off the monthly mortgage? Clarification: we’re buying ONCE we get married!

Part of me doesn’t care, because I don’t know her, the other part is thinking she may steal my friends, and then I may end up friendless. I don’t really wanna go to the dinner, but still having these feelings of being left out/losing all my friends. I’m still encouraging my friends to go.
