I had one for about 20 years but as of the last few years we seem to be drifting, and especially the case whenever she's in a relationship. Plus covid and less hanging out, less check ins, and I've had time to reflect on how I don't think we've been good friends for awhile. Is it that as more time passes there's more opportunity to offend each other, nitpick at personalities?

I feel this.

Absolutely. Her and I share a birthday, and we've been friends for 10+ years.

She's the one person I'd trust to help me get rid of a body.

I do. Funny enough I’m still friends with people I met in kindergarten. Whole big group... but my best friend, my ride or die, is my buddy from college. He lives in another state, but has been there for me no matter what. I shared the title of best man with his brother at his wedding, and he’ll 100% be mine if that day ever comes.

My sister & husband

Yep, about 3 or 4 of em. We have a group of 15 of us who’ve been in a groupchat thats been active pretty well every day for 8 years now. Many of us were close friends before the groupchat started, but really banded us together. I see i’d say half of them at least every second week (obvi less during covid although we have been golfing a lot)

like

Yep. One since 9th grade of high school. Going on 16 years! A few other really great friends too that I’ve known for years and still keep in touch with. Got lucky 😊 These ladies rock!

I’ll be taking out a lot in MBA loans, so I want to recruit for the best possible company across IB, consulting, and tech.

Could I recruit mainly for BBs, MBB, and FAANG?

Hey FishBowl Friends, so I’m currently trying to break into tech sales/FinTech and I feel that due to my previous work history, I might not look like the ideal candidate on paper but I’m an extremely fast learner and very coachable. I’ve been a manger at a gym, got my degree in finance, worked as a client advisor at a top 3 auto dealer in the nation and now I’m a project manager at a solar company. I really want something that’s remote and steady, any recommendations on how to spruce myself up?

I came into a hedge fund job as an analyst in February of this year and didn’t negotiate my bonus at the outset. I was coming from tech and needed a green card so didn’t have much room to do so.

With bonus season coming up, I have a feeling my PM is going to underpay me. Should I bring up the subject myself? Also, how do I get a sense of what I’m worth? I did not trade but was the main data guy and built a tool that is indispensable for our process. Is 10% of his cut of PnL reasonable?

Caught covid and 1 week in. I'm very fortunate and my symptoms are relatively mild. I took the Regeneron antibodies and it does certainly seem to be an amazing treatment. As I have learned more, it seems that everyone I can find who took it has experienced fewer and less severe symptoms and a shorter duration overall. I have also been a strict and aggressive vitamin regimen from day 2.

If you catch covid, I encourage you to speak with you doctor about this quickly in the process.

Good luck!

I have had covid before (a year ago), female, and had my first moderna shot. I’m a little worried about taking my second shot cuz I’ve heard ppl who had high fever for a week straight. Since I’m high risk for having a bad adverse reaction to the second dose. Debating if I should still get it? I’m just really not looking forward to that 104 degree fever for a week straight.
