Are you happier without them in your life? Whenever this happens to me I take a step back and think whether or not they were a net negative or positive in my life. Sometimes you don't really realize until afterwards that they were not healthy for you.

There was a lot going on. Losses in family, really triggering national events. But yeah, I just got out of a brain fog and remembered

I think if the friend was worth having around, you would have had a convo. Otherwise, people ghost each other to avoid the confrontation required to fix or resolve the issue at hand. I have been ghosted several times by friends and I have learned to not take it personally. Most were shitty/ flakey friends with no substance anyways. Their loss, not mine.

Wouldn’t hurt to reach out to them!

Hello everyone,

I graduated college in 2017, and I got my paralegal certificate a few months later. I have been working as a paralegal/legal project manager for close to four years. I’ve had previous jobs as a coordinator and a project assistant. Now, I am seeking a project management and project coordination roles. I have not had many callbacks. Would anyone mind reviewing my résumé and giving me some advice? I would greatly appreciate it.

What happens with your 401k after you leave? Do you just keep the account or do they make you move over to a personal non-vanguard account? What if your next employer doesn’t offer a 401k program?

I prefer to hire people with character and grit. Maybe they got a 3.2 GPA because they didn't want to be the smartest in the room, so they took courses so hard that they had some hard-won Cs and Bs, or there was a field they sucked at but were passionate about, so they persisted with it until they got better at it. They know what failure feels like, and how to bounce back until they achieve their goal. I'd take that candidate any day over the 4.0 who's avoided failure all their life.

I tell a lot of jokes and I'm very sarcastic (even about myself). Does anyone feel this is an issue? I wish I could speak like a normal person, but I just like to laugh a lot.
Some ppl think that I'm telling the truth when I'm being sarcastic (tbh, I think some of them are boring/dumb, but I also recognize my inability to speak like a grown up)

***Btw, I'm gay and I never do minorities or mean jokes. Also, I never behave like this in office, exactly because not everybody can't take jokes.

Not a political question, just something on my mind: Have any Russians ever tried to sneak illegally into the US by boat from Russia's easternmost point to Alaska? Distance from Cuba to the US is 770 miles and people make that cross all the time. Distance from Russia to Alaska is 55 miles (you can see across on a clear day). Is security pretty tight along this waterway, is this mode of defection just really uncommon, or is this a legitimate border concern that just isn't on most people's minds?

I’m annoyed when celebrities speak out about social issues. I know that a lot of them want to use their platform for good, and I mostly agree with popular viewpoints. However, they are definitely not experts in human rights/science/economics. I feel like a lot of people tend to regard them as such just because they are talented in other areas (ex: music, film, comedy).
