Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
Currently in a play on ATOS that might be interesting for some. It’s a biotech with its primary drug being endoxifen aimed at treatment for breast cancer. Company has no debt and $138M in cash. It’s been announced to be included in the Russell 2K so there will be a predictable movement of ETF inclusion close to June 25. It also still has a high short interest so potentially for shorts to be blown out. I’m currently in 25k shares @ 3.35 holding into the 25th. My price target is $20.

Any moms who really badly wanted a girl but ended up with a boy(s)? How do you feel now? Do you still want a girl? Would you try again? Does it matter really, or was it just in your head?

Difficult pregnancy so likely won't have another. But I want a girl. 🤷🏻♀️ Please no woke left gender drama responses. Thanks.
I was told to give one students “food rewards” when he does what he is supposed to do. I will only do this if others on task gets the same reward. Non-perishable, kid friendly, bite size food ideas?
