Alright, NJ/NYC folks… let’s do a meet up on August 27th! Someone’s gotta start something! 😂

Date: Saturday, August 27th
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: A bar? We can do either “The Ship” or “The Dead Rabbit”— I’ve heard great things about both!

I was planning to be out and about in the city on this day anyways, so this works perfectly (whether or not people show up)!

If you have any other recs, post them below! We can also iron out and make final decisions together!

I have a new job potentially starting Jan 1. Thinking about a weekend in Vegas mid Dec. Anyone else want to join? F 44. Not married and no kids - I like to party and do a bit of gambling.. prefer fun people with good sense of humor to go with. Nothing weird. Just think a new crowd would be fun. Plus all my friends have families or jobs and can’t make plans that quickly :-) would also be open to meeting people who live in Vegas.

Has anyone considered becoming a real estate agent just to save on those RE agent fees? If you do just one transaction per decade for yourself, seems like you'll still do better even considering ongoing TREB/OREA/brokerage fees.

How to set expectations for my last two weeks at big 4? I’m an associate and my senior keeps piling on more work during my last two weeks at the firm. I tried telling them that I need time to do offboarding stuff on my other clients like addressing coaching notes/uploading my documents for my teammates/other open items. But they seem to think that I’ll just work later to finish the work they give me. I don’t plan on working more than 40 hours. How can I set this expectation nicely but firmly?

All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.
