My boyfriend is kind of cheap. Granted I make way more money than him, but I bought a super expensive flight so we could be together for New Years. I feel like he doesn’t appreciate it he just expects it because I make more. I don’t mind but I’m wondering how we can work long term if we’re on such different pages when it comes to money. I’m not a spendy person but I like to enjoy experiences and travel while I can.
Ive been bullish since June and expect this rally to continue until late August. After that, I’m loading up on VIX and value stocks. Open to feedback/different viewpoints. Delta variant is irrelevant IMO. Week of July 26th - Choppy mid-week due to interest rate decision on 7/28 Week of August 2nd - Bullish all week leading up to July Jobs data Week of August 9th - Inflation data might cause slight pullback but still bullish Week of August 16th - Bullish until options expiry on August 20th

Considering moving to South Florida and wanted input on areas to look at that are a little more low key than Brickell, Wynwood & South Beach.

Why is the Verizon service so shitty at ATL? 1 dot, maybe 2. Hey VZ!! Can you hear me now??
I’ll be damned if I let my kids enroll in CA (especially Bay Area) public schools. Between this and not allowing honors courses until 10th grade & not allowing algebra until 9th, CA is setting its students up for future failure. https://www.wsj.com/articles/systemic-anti-asian-bias-san-francisco-merit-test-sat-harvard-california-minorities-racism-11638830364
To the PwC newbie at LAX: don't wear your suit on a redeye. Change when you arrive so you don't look like a hobo. And take the onboarding nametag off your laptop case. Actually just buy a new bag.

Very impressed with SWA today. Hubby got delayed 3h then stuck on tarmac 3h at LGA Thurs night. Last night we got a $150 travel voucher for the inconvenience even though delay was weather related!

Hi - curious to hear thoughts about Wharton vs. Sloan’s brand outside the US. I’m interested in working abroad post MBA, and am keen to get any international perspectives. Appreciate the help!
For visa reasons, I'm joining Google on Jan 4. Will I definitely not get refreshers next year unless I get an EE? That seems slightly unfair. :|
Advice needed. I am considering laterally moving to a HR role but don’t know if I should. Recruiting seems to pay more and will allow me to maximize my salary while I’m young. I’m just not sure if it’s the best fit for my life down the road later in my career. Has anyone been in this position before that can offer advice ?

I’m changing jobs from consulting to industry. My base salary raise is 8% (they won’t move any higher) but with bonus included it’s a 21% bump. Do you think that’s a good offer?
I never thought being a mom would be this difficult. I am working full time, have an infant who wakes up every 3-4h and doesn't fall back asleep unless held in arms, am breastfeeding for medical reasons, and feel resentful and beyond tired all the time. I hate the fact that my body is so different to how it was before, that I don't have a sense of self any more, that I can't disconnect and take a break (and this is likely to not change for years to come). Is this normal or unfit to be a mom?
