VUG and forget it. Better returns than VOO.

No problem! I’ve done many back tests and VUG seems to be the winner over time. Doesn’t predict the future but it’s a good indicator.

Do you include unrealized PTO into your net worth if your company pay it out once terminated/you leave and you don’t lose it at the end of each year? Essentially guaranteed money if you don’t use it so not sure why one wouldn’t include it 🤔

Left a job in government (prosecution), currently at a mid-size firm. I’m really starting to not only hate law firm life, but the practice of law generally. Is this part of the transition? I left my last job because I was on-call 24/7. Now I’m 24/7 again but due to billable requirements. I have no hobbies, no free time, and only spend about an hour/day with my kids. Not sure I want this life. At least I had insane PTO for govt work.

What's the etiquette around reminders about pre-Thanksgiving emails/tasks/etc? On one hand, I don't want to be the guy who emails people a reminder at 8am on the Monday after the holiday weekend as if they weren't busy, but on the other hand, the people had 1-3 business days (after considering PTO and holiday time, because the tasks are from the 19th and 22nd) to handle or reply, and they have not yet.

Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
