“I also kept in touch with a young boy I met in my travels. He reached out many years later to say that my 6 months of vacationing inspired him to pursue his passions. That boy’s name? Albert Einstein.”

She became an expert in foreign affairs during her six month vacation? Impressive. 9 countries in 6 months of travel isn’t even that much. I backpacked Europe with a friend for 30 days and hit 12 countries just in the one continent I was in lol.

Also, I assume OP is a woman due to the talk of having kids versus being career-driven, and the “why not” of traveling not being safe.

While I laughed and liked your answer it is also “oh, so American.” “I hit all the spots in less time than you, bro.” Isn’t that the American hustle way? I dunno. It mirrors the sentiment of this entire statement.

6 months abroad, not even at one place called foreign affairs experience 🤣🤣🤣

I think we’re seeing all these posts because LinkedIn “training” is telling people that they should post 3 types of content rotating.

1. Something about your company/product
2. Something about the broader industry you’re in
3. Something personal to you that is still somehow related to your job/industry

I’ve never posted the third type but I’m not a LinkedIn “influencer”

Made a series of terrible mistakes. Recently took a job at ACN, 2 weeks later I posted the cringiest humblebragy post on LinkedIn and fast forward 2 weeks and I realize that I was bamboozled into taking this job which was horrible mistake to accept.
I look at my LI post with 100s of likes and feel totally ashamed.

If LinkedIn is so cringe, why are you on it looking at the news feed? If there was no news feed, there wouldn’t be any reason for people to go back to the app every day. It would be like Indeed.
