What level should I expect at FAANG? I have a PhD in CS from a world top 10 university. I did a PhD after working 3 years in the industry, and since my PhD, another 3 years have passed.

On seniority: 50% I'm acting tech & team lead, scrum master, regularly negotiating with stakeholders, across multiple teams etc., 50% actively developing. Options: generalist SWE at Google /Facebook (Meta) or embedded SWE at Meta.

Lately I started to notice that my boyfriend (of 2 yrs) often interrupts me mid-sentence with a random off-topic remark or story, or just starts talking over me when I’m saying something. I realized he has been doing this for a long time. When calling him out on it, he apologizes and makes a joke to laugh it away. Is this something guys do or is this just plain disrespectful?
My parents are both immigrants. My mom was orphaned at age 7 and moved to the US after feeling like she had no future in her country. My dad won a visa lottery months before completing his economics degree abroad but came to the US for a better life. They both work hard and things have not been easy. Today I got to take them to a nice dinner to celebrate my first 6 figure salary. They said this is the better life they came here for. I’m beyond grateful.

Any advice / coping mechanisms for dealing with anxiety? I’ve never been to a therapy but I want to start. Also thinking about getting more into yoga and meditation.

Ladies, how do you handle it when your date is just not that good at texting? 😂 I am certain that we like each other and in-person is great chemistry, but his texting style just looks really cold and makes me not want to text him much. I even told him about this and he tries to use more emoji/exclamation marks now but still… texting him is not very enjoyable 😂

My mom just had spinal surgery and the news is that she may never be able to walk again, and will probably need bladder control support for the rest of her life. She had a stroke when I was 19 that left her right foot paralyzed, and I thought that was going to be the hardest thing I had ever gone through. Now I’m 25 and I don’t know how I’m going to get through this...

Wayfair is like Amazon - they just ship from other manufacturers, and carry a variety of qualities. You could buy a nice bed, or a super shitty bed, from Wayfair.. so pay more attention to the brand vs the fact that it’s “from Wayfair”
Yes I ordered one from them and have been happy with it. I messed up a part but they sent me a replacement
Are you referring to bed frame or actual mattress? I purchased my current bed frame from Wayfair about 4 years ago and have no issues with it.
For frames, I have ordered 2 for our guest bedrooms and they are great. Just ordered a replacement for our master…
Yes love my wayfair bed frame
