Do you feel explicitly femme / butch / futch / stud ? I feel like I’m not femme or butch and I’d be more butch personality wise in a relationship but definitely more of a futch / soft butch physically?

Recently got the Amex blue cash preferred card with 6% cash back on groceries.

How is this applied? I can't seem to figure if the money is coming off statements automatically or if I have to do something to gain the value.

I'm finding Amex hard to navigate


I joined JPMC today as an Associate in Plano, TX. I got another offer at Morgan Stanley (Associate too) in NYC. I like the team at MS better and I have always wanted to work in NYC and would have started looking for opportunities 6-12 months down the line.
I'm on my F1 visa (OPT) and it's my first job ever (also first job in the US). MS is aware of my situation and is fine if I work for a month at JPMC and switch over. But I don't want it to have a negative impact on my career and my future!

My cousin(2021 passout Mechanical Engineer) has got an offer from Tata Elxsi and he is currently working with Tata Consultancy (started 3 months). The Hr of Tata Elxsi told him that they cannot onboard him as he is a Tata Consultancy employee. But he has received an offer letter from Tata Elxsi. Is there any such policy for freshers? He really want to join Tata Elxsi. So if he resigns from Tata Consultancy will there be any issue at joining Tata Elxsi?

Any leads will be helpful.
