Absolutely hate consulting and been at it for 8 years. Decided to stay for various reasons - immigration, lack of good offers etc. But so glad that I didn’t take up any of those marginally better offers that were trying to shortchange me. Finally exiting to a opportunity that I always dreamt of. Takeaway: focus on what you really want and keep trying
I am going to miss my students tomorrow and Friday. I love them so much, and I don’t want to be digital; I want to teach them in person! This year has definitely been a challenging year, but I am so thankful I have been afforded the opportunity to teach in a classroom. My time at home during this pandemic was mentally taxing, and seeing my kids in person this semester has given me life. Every day I am teaching is day that is more than a gift.

Quote of the day from a client email: "I don't want to be an alarmist, but I'm worried."
In town for the week for work and saw news about the guns found in downtown hotel. Does this seem isolated or are folks hearing news that this is a bigger concern / safety issue (esp during all star week).

My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL. Would this be best done by setting up a credit card account for her? Or a separate checking account to which I deposit money every month? How would you do it? TIA!
