For people who live and plan to buy a home in HCOL cities, what’s your savings strategy for a down payment?
Currently 26, make $120K and put about 10% post tax into a Roth 401k and then anywhere from 20-40% into VOO. Goal is to be able to afford a down payment for a $1.5M home in 5-7 years.
Sometimes I get a bit concerned I’m not putting enough towards retirement, but with how expensive homes, can’t really budget any more towards it.
I had to run some morning errands last week and I was struck by the morose expressions on parents' faces as they waited in school lines for drop off.
I spend my mornings gardening, tending my house, playing with my cats, reading, learning new hobbies or just being. Talked to my mom about how we take for granted not having to drag a kid/grandkid to school every morning and how much of the day it eats up.
How many of you focus solely on halal investments? Where do you (which ETF or funds) do you put your 401k in? Where do you investment in stock market?

I'm finally understanding what it really means to be a person of color in the advertising world.
I don't know how y'all have done it for so long. I'd quit today if I didn't need the health insurance.
Is it normal in a long term relationship for your significant other to not support what you do and talk to you like a child every day? We live together and I feel trapped. This is so hard.
As if IVF wasn't overwhelming enough, I learned yesterday that some people wait in lines for preschools even BEFORE they get pregnant. Makes me want to say 'maybe I'm better off not having kids'. Does anyone else get cold feet about kids? Or is it just me? My husband really wants kids and I want nothing more than to see him happy, therefore I want kids.
Good morning everyone. I’m new to the app and would like some insight on transitioning into tech from the medical field. If anyone has any helpful tips they would be greatly appreciated.
Hi & welcome.
Tell me your stories. Why made you decide to choose a career that's different and creative? I'll start. I am an extrovert. I am not very keen of studying and that, ideally is the reason why engineering or medical was not my cup of tea. I chose Journalism and Mass Media. In the academics, we had multiple subjects and one of them was Writing for media. This was the beginning. This is where I thought I can be a writer. A Content Writer. Besides this, I am love Rhyming Words.
Has anyone completed the Sustainability and Climate Risk Certification offered by GARP? Needed some inputs around study materials and practical benefits.
Looking at leaving big law for a small boutique (I would be attorney 3). Current firm offers 16 weeks paid parental leave; small firm is 12 paid. Is 12 reasonable/enough?

Breast are slightly tender.
Did anyone else had no major symptoms during early pregnancy? Is this normal?
As a non-resident alien (foreigner) does it make sense to invest in a 401k? Or just do ROTH and call it a session

Emails that are only addressed to my two male colleagues who perform the same function as me. Only thing better are the emails that need to be forwarded to me at a later date because client went directly to male colleagues when, in fact, I’m the only one that can help them! Anyone else have this experience? It’s getting frustrating and inefficient.
Should I get a new therapist?
I've been seeing one for a few months but don't really get much out of it. Recently I was telling them about my relationship with my parents (that tend to show narcissistic qualities) and they responded with "oh you know, it's a different generation, they grew up in a conservative country" and said it's reassuring that my siblings/cousins feel the same.
Am I crazy for thinking this isn't a great response?
Friendly late 20s woman fish here who hasn’t been feeling good enough to be in consulting or run a business. I don’t know what’s going on but even with all of my accomplishments I feel worthless. I’m in therapy so I’m sure there’s a rainbow somewhere but I’m wondering if anyone else has felt like this and what you’ve done to get past it? I’ve thought of reading more books on my craft and doing affirmations but I’m like internally smh at everything.

Do you think we will ever go back to big weddings? In the current environment it feels hard to imagine, even once things are “safe” somehow it feels like big (e.g. more than just close family) weddings seem so ostentatious now. If I got married again now I would so clearly do something really small but maybe it’s just me... or maybe I’m just much older now than when I got married and that brings a different perspective
