Anyone else have a wedding coming up that the bride and groom refuse to postpone? It’s a close family member and wedding is mid-august and I’m getting pretty freaked out at the idea of us ending up as one of those headlines “40 people test positive for COVID after attending wedding”
Trying to convince my spouse that we should get deeper into crypto but she’s worried. I’m about $5K total over the past 6 months (buying dips) and have a mix of LINK, XLM, ANKR, LRC, NKN, and OXT. This is about 2% of our total investments with 401K and all. Really want to get into ETH and polygon and/or Cardano but struggling with the spousal issue and where to put the money…. 😌

I work at a product based company and my benefits come around 12 LPA. I have an offer from Optum with around 19 LPA fixed + 3 LPA variable.

I am 30 in a HCOL city and live within my means, I rent a nice apartment with a roommate. I’m able to max 401k, HSA, Ira. I have 6mo emergency fund saved. My debts are paid off. What should I do with an extra ~$500 month? The options I’ve thought of are:
1) invest it in a brokerage account (e.g. VTSAX)
2) save for a down payment on investment property (could afford a nice-ish 1br in the city to rent out, but not something I’d want to live in)
Looking forward to your thoughts/opinions!
If your agency would pay for any training, education, certification you wanted (no limits on time or money including PTO to complete) what would you do?
I’ve finished the final rounds of interview for a senior consultant job. At the very beginning I was asked what my salary desire is and I said 140K but that that is negotiable based on job responsibilities as I learn more. The range is for 120-170K.
I’m preparing for an offer to come in and have reviewed the benefits and they’re not amazing. (I also currently make 95K in the DC area).
My question is, if an offer comes in at 140K, but I’m actually more comfortable at 155K, is it too late?

Is it a bad sign if a recruiter looked at your profile on LinkedIn but you haven’t heard back yet? For context, applied to Amazon last Thursday, noticed the recruiter checked my profile this Tuesday. Could it be the short holiday week meant they weren’t working? Or is it a sign they won’t be reaching out?

How do you find motivation for case preparation. Last year, I did over 70+ cases and didn’t get an offer. This year, I’ve done about 10+ cases and I’m exhausted already. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy casing but I’m mentally exhausted from the entire process. Has anyone experienced this? How did you overcome it?

What people do with their bodies is obviously their right but I personally believe we need a middle ground to truly settle the abortion topic pragmatically as a nation.
Exceptional cases aside (rape, medical emergency, etc), I believe abortions should be allowed up until ~14 weeks. Exceptional cases need to be allowed in an instant regardless of X weeks in.
A fetus is at its complete mercy of the person carrying it. We should deal with this with more a combination of compassion and sense.
