3 dates or less, fine. More than 3, phone call. Couple months, in-person. I’ve cut it off with guys after 2-3 dates while at work. Put that shit on my to do list. But, those were the 3 dates or less guys.

I put this in confessions because I don't feel good about it and needed to somewhat get it off my chest.

To everyone giving me shit for texting during a client meeting sincerely, fuck you. My personal romantic health is far more important than some piece of shit ad. No one gives a shit about advertising except the people in it.

I didn't want to do it via text, and neither did they, but sometimes things work out that way. I'm not going to have any free time to meet in person because I have work to do and dragging this out wasn't going to be good for anyone.

I'm already feeling better. Thanks to the peeps that made jokes. I needed em.

But if you went out on more than two dates with the person - bad form.

My dad who lives in Asia just announced that he had a medical issue. I’m starting to enter the age where I’m going to take care of him financially. It’s a $2,000 hospital bill which in the US is nothing compared to what it represents there (which he can’t afford). He’s going to be fine! Just wanted to share with this group as many of you can understand what it feels like to support your parents when they’re old, not the other way around. I feel so blessed I can help him. 🙏🏽

It also makes me feel as if there is no urgency in my position or the company in general. Wondering if this is even the right company for me.

I’m a 1styear, and there’s one other junior associate of color in my group.
The partner I work for keeps calling me her name. For ex: my name is “Sara” and her name is “Jasmine”. Names not similar, we don’t look alike - but I suppose we are about the same complexion. I can’t help but think it’s because we’re the only two black juniors. I was granting her grace because my mom accidentally calls me my sisters name and stuff, I get that it happens. But now it’s becoming a microagression. Advice?

When you speak in such a way, others love to listen to you and listen in such a way that others love talking to you. It shows you value your team by actively listening to their concerns, feedback or suggestions. I sometimes wonder why companies ask their employees for their feedback when time and time again, they never listen to what their employees are saying.
