Recessions are tough on all industries. If you are good at your job and keep your head down, hopefully you retain your job until it passes. But sometimes you can be unlucky.

Thank you, you're right. Keeping the focus on what we're doing.

(24M) I have around 10k saved in my credit union savings account. Thinking about putting a decent amount in a high yield savings account like GS’s Marcus to start compounding interest. I’m not very knowledgeable in investing as I didn’t grow up with a lot or have parents who were money savvy. Does anyone have recommendations on how to navigate the investing landscape? Honestly it’s a little overwhelming and I just feel lost. Should I invest in CDs, index funds, start a Roth IRA ? So many optins

Looking forward to what Sprint Qualifying throws up 🙌🏻

I imagine if nothing goes wrong then order at the end of Sat will be order of pace but I'm sure (or at least I'm praying) some mid-field runner will do something crazy and end up causing an issue to a front runner and that will make Sunday interesting.

What are your thoughts?

Do you all think it'll just be: use softs on Fri set fastest pace, use mediums on Sat and finish in order they qualified, and then 1 stop Med-Hard strategy on Sun?

Just absolutely disgusted at the state some attorneys leave their cases in when they know they’re leaving a firm. I’m sitting here drowning in deadlines that a former associate completely ignored. Trying to triage cases from deadbeat outgoing attorneys is infuriating. Honestly, don’t be this person. This bridge is so completely burned my entire firm has soured on this associate and it will be known that their cases were left in disarray.

After reading posts from the bowl, My brain to me:


There is so much of toxicity and hatred. Marriage fear and uncertainty however that is true to some extent. But sometimes wonder what kind of world we are in the making and why are we becoming so toxic as a generation.

I read somewhere, We kept saying "Accept it as it is, now the world is full of toxic people. There has to be an order in the upbringing and societal behaviour but we have lost all that on the name of freedom and my choice."
