I remember pieces of what I read. Right down to which side of the book and how far down the page. It helps anytime retention of facts is important. Series 7 anyone?


No, but I’m psychic and have X-ray vision.


Photographic memory is not a real phenomena

@Financial Advisor1 ...Don't be jelly

I remember almost everything that I hear and it helps me with product knowledge, any type of knowledge the fact, and I don't have to study much. When I do you study it is usually just to make sure that I remember things correctly

I’m about to report my boss to HR around some inappropriate comments they made. This was during a team meeting. i’m in industry. Our boss is new- only two months with the company. The other manager and I have been there for six months. is this career suicide? My boss is very close with the leader of our group so it’s unlikely that she’ll get fired.  me and my other manager are going to go to HR today to discuss what was said. They were sexist and racist comments.

Recently relocated to a new city (MCOL) from HCOL, got a big salary bump, was thinking about saving money and got a really cheap studio. But I hate the place so far for 1) I can hear noise for everything 2) The place is too small 3) emotional depressed for living in such a small place. Should I pay 1.5X rent to get out here and get a nice place?


I'm starting a new position Monday and it will be 100% WFH. How do you all dress for WFH positions typically?

Also, any other tips you have are more than welcome! TIA
