Hello. Need advice. I work in San Diego and am from Lubbock. I come from a Indian family, I have been on my own for 4 years now, but ever since work from home started, family has been wanting me to work from Texas. I moved back last April. I am used to being on my own but every time I mention about it, they say that family is important and want me to stay. It’s really making word hard because I don’t like to start my day at 11 am ct instead of 9am pst. Would rather be in Cali. What should I do?

If anyone’s been to these places, which would you recommend?
Given rising uber prices, any recs for the most cost effective/ reliable way to get between ORD and lakeview (im flying out the friday night before thanksgiving and coming back early monday morning after thanksgiving)? E.g., is a black car service more cost effective / reliable than uber black or uber xl? Note- i want to avoid any type of shared transportation (train, uber pool, etc). Thanks!

Anyone doing internal product management? I have been hired as a senior product manager by the people tech IT team at a big company. I come from a b2b product owner/business systems analyst background.

It’s ok to have a long term thesis that you’re not buying during this crash. Don’t try to call the bottom - wait for the bullish trends to emerge and then buy. I think uranium, battery materials, and ag will be multi-year winners, but I’m not invested in any of them now because the charts look like death. They’re on my watchlist and I look at them every day. Patience trumps conviction.

Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

Hi all - could use a little crowdsourced help with an admittedly unusual request. Last year, I did a two month working retreat south mid-jan through mid-March. Would like to do it again, but I am looking for a place with a basketball court (key), pool (key), and ideally near the ocean (nice). Trying to stay at 3-5k per month. Been googling, but does anyone know of anything offhand? Hotel or AirBnB is fine, leaning SoCal or FL, but open to suggestions.

Am I really the only one who misses the option to stack out windows on the task bar prior to windows 11. Windows 11 doesn’t give me the option to unhide windows and I have double click into the icon to see how many windows I have open. This is frustrating, is it just me 😞
