I was offered $108k for a designer role at chiat\day LA. Is that good? Should I have asked for more given today’s market? I’m looking for reasons to give up my freelancing lifestyle and was hoping for a title bump, which I didn’t get. I’m super unfamiliar w the advertising market and used to be a product designer. Took a pay cut to do more creative work, but if I can get back the salary I had, I would.

Maybe I’m biased due to having poor luck, but why is dating so hard? Everyone just wants the next best thing and no one is ever satisfied. One argument and people sprint for the door instead of reconciling as they have “options.”

People on dating apps seem like they’re only on there to validate themselves to feel better when they get “likes” or “swipes,” but will not respond when messaged.

I honestly don’t think true love is a real thing.
