WFH today and answered a conference call while taking a shit. Accidentally had the video on.
I’m really conflicted. I am 23 and I love my firm and current team so much, I just got promoted and the raise was okay (13k increase), I wouldn’t be stressed if it wasn’t for the fact that I financially support members of my family and now the raise doesn’t seem like enough especially since student loan payments are coming back soon. I know I can go to another firm and probably get a nice pay increase but I really don’t want to. I don’t know what to do.
wanted to share this messed up situation I was in: was casually dating a person for 2 months and they told me they were engaged for two years before (which I didn’t really care). But the important piece of the information they left out was the fact that the person they were engaged to is literally their current roommate (which I have met many times and brought them snacks). Now I feel really lied to and silly. I was really trying to be a genuine person and supported them when their dog passed. 🥴
