Feeling depressed because I just did a more realistic budget calculation for a March trip to Spain. B/w the need for refundable flight and hotels (I normally do airbnb and don’t care about refundable flights, and I don’t have enough miles and can only get us partial coverage at 1 hotel out of 2) plus covid tests, the trip is about $1000-2000 more/pp than I anticipated. I don’t think my SO’s gonna want to spend the money to go..Should probs look into backup intl locations 😭

I’ve gained a lot of weight from the stress of being home and COVID. It’s gotten to the point where I am avoiding going outside my home because I fear being judged for the weight gain. While I’d love to reframe this with everyone has their own problems to think about and they aren’t focused on me, a few neighbors have made comments (trying to be supportive, but really judgmental underneath). Has anyone tackled the weight and social anxiety and made progress? How?

There’s so much of a race to marry and settle down for male and female desis, so for those of you who got divorced with or without a child what is your life about now? This culture is so unforgiving so much of the time, that without both these things in place they’re not about inclusion much either. Do you still feel a sense of urgency to race to remarry?

In the middle of interviewing for a role externally right now. Would other firms generally expect you to start after we get bonus? Even if I get the offer in mid-Nov…this means I won’t be able to start at a new firm until mid-Feb (given 30 day garden leave after bonus and resignation). Is that a usual/ok timeline?

Hi there. Earlier this year I laid out a business case for why I should get a raise & I asked for a $20-25k annual raise. I got $15k. I found out another person also asked for a raise around the same time. He didn’t give a business case, he just asked;he got the full amount he asked for ($70k). He is more senior than me, has been there longer, & we are not in the same function. However, something is just not sitting right with me about this situation. Any thoughts? Am I just over-analyzing?
