If you're into fantasy, the premiere of the Wheel of Time Amazon series pushed me to pick that series back up. While I don't really recommend the series (for readers of the series especially), I would highly recommend the series which begins with Eye of the World. It's one of the most critically acclaimed fantasy epics out there, and it would most likely keep you busy all year. The series is 15 lengthy novels.

I was getting out of the military, had no directly transferable work skills, and needed to make a living in an expensive city (San Diego).

Took a job in insurance sales and the rest is history! Been in sales for about 15 years now ❤️

One of the things that drives me crazy at work is when the boss is the first to leave while the staff is still working like crazy or working really late ahead of a big event, especially if they just assigned a ton of work to everyone. They really value their own work life balance but seem unaware of the team’s workload and they aren’t a roll up your sleeves and pitch in kind of person.

Q for Assurance associates 1, how much was your hike %?

Movement shot of my Lange Saxonia, with the 941.1. This older movement was released in 1995 (the year after the brand revived), and originally included in the 1815 line of watches. It has a 45hr power reserve, and a diameter of 26mm. Unlike most Lange watches, it is not free sprung

Sometimes I wish my watch had an updated mvmt like the Thin (exposed wheels, 72 hr reserve, free sprung), but others am glad to have what is close to the original Lange design, which was revolutionary at the time

Friend of mine was working with a desi consultancy. She found a better gig and moved, but the desi consultancy refused to provide an experience letter. They were mad at her that she moved and wanted to give her a hard time with eventual GC filing. Why are people like this? Shouldn’t they be understanding and help her since she is desi too. She reached out to a lawyer and the lawyer mentioned that he has seen such cases, apparently only with desi consultancies. WTF?

Just switched from counting calories to trying to maintain a calorie deficit by just mental estimates. I've been in a caloric deficit for around 2 months and I just found it so annoying to enter everything in my fitness pal even if it was 2 strawberries. It was ruining my relationship with food and adding a lot of stress. This is my first time not counting obsessively so I would greatly appreciate any advice for going forward
