I try to spend as little as possible. Around $1500 a month including rent. Quite easy when you're traveling all the time. The rest of my paycheck goes to savings so like $4500/mo. #singlelifenokids,alsoAsianperson

My goal is 2k per month post tax (down payment account, emergency, Roth, vacation). Pretax for 401k and FSA is about 1500. 23/F

I'll start : 30, F, max out 401K and IRA, save an additional 2k (emergency fund already maxed out), invest additional 5K in private brokerage account.

Slowing down on savings to pay down student loans. 900/mo right now 🙃🙃🙃. But also maxing out 401k match, using the HSA (Health savings account for HDHP), and contributing monthly to a Roth IRA & separate investment account. "Unfortunately" make too much to contribute to a traditional IRA.

40k. 24. Analyst, 75k a year. 900 rent.

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.

Anyone else having the hard internal decision of returning to work in office?

I am afraid I can leave and end up with an awful group/culture but also afraid for my mental health of going back to office 100% full time M-Th. Anyone else in the same boat?

BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it?

They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
