For people who haven’t merged finances with your spouses. How do you share child medical expenses like insurance deductibles and copays?
I will get 7-8 hours of sleep every night that I can this year. By any means necessary. Older you get, the more you realize how important sleep is to health, appearance, happiness, performance, etc.
Food for thought: if you die today (hypothetical/knock on wood), your company will have a replacement for you latest Monday morning. For folks who are feeling anxious and stressed for work especially now, a thought experiment for perspective. Focus on what really matters - the health and wellbeing of yourself and your loved ones.
This is Joe Biden's America. "This used to be a beautiful, safe city — I don’t even recognize it. Nothing’s open, nothing’s the same,” said a passerby and former Portland resident named Jennifer, who added that it upsets her to see businesses boarded up for protection against violent protesters who emerge at night." https://www.koin.com/news/health/coronavirus/nothings-the-same-downtown-portland-copes-with-closures/
How do you take mental health day?
I want to open a whole life insurance policy. 30F no kids/spouse. Great health. Anything. I should ask or look out for when going forward with this? Looking to use it more like an investment vehicle. Is this wise?
How do I know if I’m just stupid or my mental health is affecting me? I’ve recently found myself struggling at work. It all started when I had to prep slides for a client training shortly after I rotated into a new seat. I spent a lot of time reading but couldn’t understand anything. Then there was another research task which I also struggled with (reading but not processing) that made me doubt my capability. I had depression/anxiety last year but thought I recovered. (cont.)
From the outside, I have a lot to be thankful for like a great job with work life balance, a loving bf, and health but I suffer from crippling depression that puts me in a dark place (cont)
Unsure if I should leave home -for good- or not. Moved back home after college to help out my parents financially & because they are not in the best health. It's been 2 years now.
Planning a pregnancy. Husband (also a consultant) is on my insurance. Should I remove him from my insurance to lower my out of pocket maximum ($7600 for the two of us vs $3800 for just me)?
When is it ok to change roles because of a difficult leader/manager? I understand we all encounter difficult leaders at some point in our career, but positive self-talk and resilience can only take me so far. I was offered an opportunity to progress my career under his wing but from the moment I started, his leadership style has been damaging to my emotional and mental (and physical) health. Do I shape up? Or is it ok to ship out? I feel like I’m letting myself be defeated if I go.
Partner and I are traveling overseas at the end of the month to the Caribbean with a requirement to produce a negative PCR test. Do we have to pay for this or would insurance cover the cost? If former, any suggestions for a cheaper place to get tested?
Time to end all the emergency BS mandates. Quickly. We’ve had months to decide if we want to get vaccinated. We have treatments available. Omicron is the variant we’ve been waiting for to end this mess. My family has all the shots we can get. Go with God for people who make other decisions. But it’s time to put the public health weenies back on their cages.
I'm from overseas working for BCG in the USA. I've a month left of my home country prescribed birth control pill, want to stay on it for now. How do I get a refill? Just a doc appt? I have insurance.

How much would you all pay for a pancake brain hat like the Green Bay Packers cheese heads hats?
Drank too much at a work dinner with some very senior people in the firm. Not sloppy but noticeably more buzzed than the rest of the group. Any recovering from this or do I look for another job?
Celonis challenge round tips?
(Serious) what do the peasants boarding for coach think when they have to walk by 23 year old consultants in first?
If you’re negative about your company, maybe your identity is too tied up in your job. Maybe you need a new hobby, a new work project, a new skill. Create your own happiness. Set work and time boundaries so you can have a life, too. No company is perfect and I’m grateful this one pays my bills and inspires my purpose. Find your good vibes, friends. ✌🏻
For my motorcycle peeps, looking to buy a beginner bike. Looking at either the Harley Davidson Iron 883 or the Honda Shadow Phantom. Any insight would be great!

What do you reaaaaally do when you WFH?
When I landed at the Newark airport and proceeded to Boston in 2005 I had just landed in this country with $ 325 in my pocket and was on a student visa. I racked up $ 100,000 in student loans over the next few years. Paid it all off by 2010 and today our net worth is $ 2.2 million projected to close at $ 6 million by the time I retire. Work hard. Stay humble. You can do anything in this country with capitalism and free enterprise.
