PC gaming 🐟: Where is your rig? Do you have your gaming pc in the same room/desk as your work station? My new home has enough room for a den and an office. I'm trying to decide if I want my work desk in the same room as my gaming pc. Thoughts?

Captain: "Welcome to LAX...our gate is occupied, should be just a few more minutes." Shocker...
Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
Need couples therapy recommendations. SO and I just got through a serious rough patch. He was unemployed, and I had undiagnosed depression for the first half of 2021. Now we need help with communication. There’s a sea of therapists and counselors out there so welcome any and all recos!

As a GC holder I’m planning to travel abroad for 2,5months starting late September. My lease is up on 8/31 and I don’t want to commit to another lease, to save money until I’ll be back to the US in December. Is this going to jeopardize my resident status? Can I go without a lease?
Anyone ever have an unused ticket that has been paid for by the company? Can you use these for personal travel? First time this has happened, so not sure, but I have a year to use it.
For those of you planning an early retirement through FIRE, what comes after? Relax and travel or a second, more fulfilling career? I just hit some major milestones I set for myself after undergrad and am working to set a new list of goals. I’ve always wanted to “retire” by 40, but curious to see what others have planned once they reach their $$$ goal.

Hi all- I got my H1b visa stamping appointment finally for December 2021 (can’t wait to go back home after 3 years !). I am about to receive a new job offer. I was wondering if I can still keep my visa stamping appointment if I take up the new offer and get my H1b transferred? I really want to travel back home in December , it’s been rough 3 years.

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

Now that covids ending I realized how much of life there is to enjoy and how badly I want to travel, but with stuff going back in person it’s just making me sad that it might be back to desk life. I kind of like just being able to work from the road whenever I choose or just randomly pick up and go across country for a week or two. I love my job and the company but travel bug is real. Any suggestions
At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?

I'm a senior associate at an AmLaw 100 firm being considered for an non-equity partner position at another AmLaw 100 firm which is a bit further down the pole. There is a business development expection to eventually convert to equity; the expectation at the start is to assist with existing work. Jumping essentially let's me short track the road to partner. I'm unsure about the opportunity, which is essentially me starting over. Any wisdom on this situation? Thanks!
