I was saving up my PTO to plan a trip to home country in December. Now the immigration team has started an immigration case so I cannot travel in December.

Please help.
What does your retirement budget look like? Assuming no debt. What is your expected basic minimum expenditures (core life)? And what are you budgeting for fun and luxury? My basic is around 10k a month for taxes and food and transport and utilities. Luxury and fun is another ten. Big expense in basic is property tax. Big expenditure in fun is travel. I think my basic budget is too high and I could bring it down and be very happy in a smaller home and less restaurants.

For some reason, I never have issues with clients or the work at hand, but it's always internal people that give me the most grief. Everything can be going great with the client and project, and then an M just comes in to rain on the parade. How are these people building "eminence." Who wants to work with people that are always pessimistic and irritated.

Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
