Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
If I’m available for a couple of weeks, is it ok to stay home 1 day without taking vacation? Is there a way HR will find out if I don’t come in?
I started in January and I already feel that this job is having a strain on my relationship. I’m still working weekends after busy season and my s/o is upset I barely spend time with them. The rest of my team is constantly working so I feel bad if I set my boundaries and take time off.

How much did you spend per person on holiday gifts this year? Curious what most people are doing. Talking to friends I feel cheap. Although I’m a proud miser and don’t care, I’m just curious.
Hey moms, Any ideas for an impromptu last minute 2-4 day trip from NYC that we can take with our 2-month old and parents? Didn’t plan anything under the assumption that he’d be too young, but he was great during our recent road trip to Philly! Desperate to get out but I’m sure everything’s booked for the Fourth of July holiday! Doesn’t even have to be anything fancy ! Just need to get out for a change of scenery! Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
About to start a new job but have a pre-planned 2.5 week vacation for end on September. Feeling a bit uneasy about taking such a long break so early into a new position.... will they think I’m lazy and immediately get a red flag? I know it’s long but I haven’t taken vaca all year!
Is it better to extend or shorten a car rental? Going to get one for the upcoming vacation but not sure how long I’ll need the car for. Is there a difference price wise?

Has anyone here committed to a partner who has significant debt? My partner of over a year has >$300K in debt from med school. She has since quit medicine, due to a toxic culture that sounds worse than biglaw. In the last year she started earning enough to refinance her loans into a 10-year horizon. I am fortunate to be debt free and am saving aggressively with the aim of making a down payment on a NYC apartment in the next 5 years. We would like to get married before owning property (cont)

I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?

Hi all. I am interviewing for a position at 1 of the MBBs. The JD said, they needed someone with 1-2 YOE. I have 2 YOE. And I came across someone who has been hired at same position right after undergrad. They can obviously do so, I cant say its right/wrong. But now I am not getting a +ve vibe, as to if I go in I'd be working with a junior at same level. If I get through to the final stage, should I ask for a raise accordingly? How should I bring this up?

I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
Help discuss pros and cons. I have a case that's based on a previously litigated matter now brought against another D. I can bring it in State Court where other D was or I can bring it in Fed Court through Diversity. I trust State Court judges in this court and the filing fee is alot less. It might be removed anyway so should I just file in Fed Court?
Wow... so diverse. Really shows their commitment to diversity and inclusion... https://www.adweek.com/agencies/publicis-groupe-reorganizes-media-leadership-team/
Mamas - what are the most creative solutions to schooling you have seen for next year as alternatives? Is there something your school districts are doing that you think is creative and unique? Are you hiring teachers and creating pods? Renting space? I have twins entering kindergarten. I trying to find them a bridge program to act as a kindergarten but also exploring other options. I do know that a virtual environment while I work 50-60 hour weeks is not the best solution!
My only decent bond that I have with my coworkers is the fact that we talk about points and loyalty programs bonus offerings.
